    I live very close to Dorney park but many parks are listed throughout the states.

    Looks like Tom Bell has a team in California. Anyone interested in setting up at team in PA for Dorney Park??? Maybe we can settle this Disneyland vs. Disneyworld argument with whether an East Coast team or West coast team can raise more money!

    Aww thanks Tom.....I thought about using a team name like yours and just improving on it, by adding some thing about the East Coast. You know kinda like Walt's idea after he built your little castle and then made ours better.:lmao:


    In all seriousness...let's have 2 great teams so everyone can help raise money for a great cause. :thumbsup2

    I'm 99% in!!! I can't confirm for sure at the moment as my head is filled with NJ DIS Meet Weekend stuff, but should be good to go. I'll let you know soon.

    Just read this to DH in the car coming home from the NJ Meet planning session- pretty sure he's IN!

    So, being completely new to this event- I have a few questions...
    You register for $25
    You raise $75 (or more)
    You "marathon ride" a coaster?
    How long and which coaster at Dorney Park? I understand you can stop whenever you want and take breaks- but that's all I could find in the "details."
    Is the non-participating public also riding when you are, or is there a dedicated/designated coaster just for this event at the park- only for fundraisers to be riding?
    Are you still paying regular admission into the park?

    I am sure others might want to know more too. It sounds like fun!
    Go East Coast Team! :cheer2:

    Information is still pending for Dorney Park, so there's no details as to which coaster it will be yet. Some of the parks will have two coasters and you ride one for 4 hours and then the other for 4 hours.
    You have the $ figures correct. The $25 registration includes your park admission, tshirt and a meal.

    You can take breaks whenever you want.

    Thanks Tom! :thumbsup2
    No wonder why I couldn't find more info!

    We will discuss more and decide soon.

    We need more East Coasters on the Team! :cheer2:

    Hey all you MD/DC/VA DISers, anyone interested in joining me @ Kings Dominion? I'm planning on signing up soon (possibly today). I see there is a DIS team created for Kings Dominion, but right now it has no participants. Anyone else planning on signing up under the DIS team?
