    Sorry the weather didn't cooperate but YAY for starting the weekend off right!

    Silly question - how do park tickets work for C4K? Information is hard to come by!!!

    So excited to be at Kings Dominion tomorrow with some amazing fundraisers! Great work for a great cause!!!

    I hope Cedar Point is open tomorrow! My son is participating, but Cedar Point is closed today due to a water main break. They've already announced that all of their hotels will be closed until Monday, but they haven't made a decision about the park yet.

    UPDATE: CP just posted on its home page that the park will be closed until Monday. Bummer. Andrew was really looking forward to it.

    Heading out to King Dominion in less than an hour. Looks like a great day, threat of rain later this afternoon but hopefully it will hold of until we are almost done. Have fun today everyone! :cool1:

    We had a great time at Knott's Berry Farm today.

    It was a totally different vibe from last year. In 2013, we practically all rode The Jaguar the whole time and built the camaraderie there. This year, we all took lots of breaks and chatted a lot that way.

    The difference was that this year we started on Coast Rider for the first couple of hours, then switched to Jaguar. During the switch, we lost quite a few of us to other rides (with short lines as the park opened). Last year, all 30 of us started on Jaguar together and stayed together.

    Still fun and a great fundraising total!!
