That is very, very wise.

Please note that this event is not intended for children and Nickelodeon Universe will not be open.

So is that.

Its been like this for years now. Its been a big turn out every year more and more folks come! Also when I say closed to the general public I mean like closed to people who just don't wanna be around us. If you wanna come to KI that day and enjoy the day of attractions then you can! remember its a hate free zone inside the park! Your season pass will not get you in the park that day. You will have to buy a ticket =]

Also the not intended for children part is because Nick U will be closed. Most kids I know wouldn't even dare ride DT or Vortex. I still see family's bring all their love ones!

Why is that very, very, wise? :wacko:

I'll answer this. Its very wise cause a couple years back the park held pride day on a "public" day and you would be surprise how much insults and hate went around that day. From there forth its always been held on a private day. This way certain "parties" don't have to come to the park.

If I can afford it, I would love to go! I have a friend or two who are planning to go, and might try to get on in a group so tix are only $36! Besides the special live entertainment, there are supposedly no lines to be found in the park. I worked Pride Night '98 and found the guests to simply be very friendly, and with there being not many people there, an even better chance to relate with guests.

so does the tix money go to support anything other than the inside of CF pockets? I have never been to a pride day but always wondered about it......... plus I didnt know it was open to straight people........ so I just sort of assumed I was not invited....

It goes torwards the GLBT Community Center and proceeds from there go to other GLBT causes such as Aids research, HIV/AIDS walk etc

I'm planning to go ... KI Pride is always a great time! This year I guess I'll have to decide whether my last ride of the night should be Beast or Diamondback! Ugh. Such decisions!

I have been thinking about going this year. I worked Pride Night from 1999 thru 2001, and visited as a guest in 2002. Haven't been back to a Pride Night since 02. So it's time I go back, as the money does go to a good cause. I'm hoping I can get someone to join me. :)

I remember back in the day my family went to a Pride day unknowingly (back when it was a full day event). This must have been in the early to mid 90s and we wouldn't have even known if someone didn't tell us. Rumorsmasher is right. What I remember from that day is that it was a normal day at the park, fun for everyone who was there.

The Beast at night is something special of course, but that's no secret. I've only done one night ride on DB and it was raining so it was tough to keep my eyes open ... doesn't get any better than that though! :P

The ride ops and the employees are always great and have a smile on their face. I can't wait Just a month and 2 days away =)

As someone who has worked this event a lot in the past I can tell you that this is one of the few special events that the employees look forward to because the guests are extremely nice to the employees. They joke around and have a good time, it's a great night. I also looked forward to it due to the lack of cleaning that needed to be done after the night has concluded. We typically didn't even have to empty the trash cans, and the lines were free of trash laying on the ground...which is more than we could say when some local companies buy out the park.
