It's great to see all these details released for this awesome event, I'm sure we're all looking forwards to it. The photo contest caught my interest, that should be fun to participate in.

Not that the schedule of events isn't already amazing, but I wonder if they'll add a few more things here and there before the event comes. I would love to see a few different things, maybe a day-time tour of Trail of Terror or a tour of Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Castle (the second one is a bit unrealistic, but you could get some great photos!).

I've been waiting for these details ever since they said, "Details will be announced soon" in January. Anyway, I am already registered as coming (but with another organization). I can not wait for the event and I am so excited on riding Diamondback at 1am!!!

This is probably going to seem like a really stupid question but I have been told if you have a question I bet someone else has the same one.

 

As my member ID # or whatever it is to sign in do I just use my username for this site? So for me it would be "Maverickfanatic07" ??

 

Thanks

Ryan

I believe you just use your site username if you're registering as a member of one of the approved websites.

Note: I just noticed on the official event page that registration closes on May 6. There is no mention of on-site registration, so if you are interested in the event and meet the eligibility requirements, I'd act sooner rather than later.

You are correct -- there is no on-site registration. Please register by May 6th if you wish to attend.

Do I have to be there at check in in order to participate? There is a good chance that I may not be able to make it there either day for the 7:30 check in. But I still would like to enjoy the late night ERT on Diamondback and the other exclusive benefits.

 

Thanks

Yeah, call the park. In past enthusiast events, there was usually a way to pick up your packet at GR later on, but I don't know if that's the case for Ride Warriors.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully I will be able to participate, I was really looking forward to the late night Diamondback rides.

**EDIT**

 

You were right. I just have to go to GR when I get there and provide my membership information and then they will give me my packet and send someone to come get me.

 

Thanks for the help!

How exactly do you show them your membership info from a website?
