Coasterstock registration changes for 2020

Recommended Posts

From Don: "For those planning to attend Coasterstock this year, we're going to do something a little different with the registration process. Within a few days of purchasing your ticket(s), you will receive a link to register for the event instead of having to go back to the Coasterstock event page."

2020 Coasterstock tickets will go on sale some time in February! Who all on KI central plans to attend?

I currently am planning on it! I joined ACE in December!

Thankfully in years past it hasn’t been an ACE only event. Hopefully CC and/or GOCC is still going to be allowed to come.

In years pasts you have needed to be apart of a coaster club, it’ll most likely be the same this year.

People will definitely need to check their spam folders as there are some pretty aggressive spam filters on some email platforms.   Sometimes, the email is marked as spam by the email domain and never will even reach the user’s email spam folder.   I hope the email potentially being marked as spam was considered in their new approach, and would hope that a regular postal mail approach follow up happens from the park if a ticket purchased never receives the link from the park to actually register.  As someone that has run several non-coaster events, sending an email link to an users account may be successful, end up in user’s email spam folder, or never actually reach the user email account since filtered out in the email domain spam background mechanism.

The problem is, people don't follow instructions by purchasing a ticket and then registering. There were people who would register, but not buy a ticket thinking they can just use their pass.

I would hope people are not blocking KI in their email, but the registration email should be sent within 10 days of purchasing your ticket for the event.

My ticket has been purchased.

If you're planning to attend, buy tickets soon so as to not risk missing out.

Hopefully they don't sell out before the end of the day. Unfortunately I'll have to purchase the non passholder ticket even though I'll have a season pass for the event. My family for some reason always pushes off renewing our passes until around opening and it drives me nuts lol.

Tbh I wish they could do this midday on a Saturday. My problem is that I have absolutely no idea how to purchase things online and I don't own a credit card. So I'd need assistance from my mom who works during the day.

I am going to attempt to order tickets while I am at work. I do not have my families gold cards with me...but I do have them all of my KI app. It mentions an 8 digit number...but says older ones may be longer. On my app all I see is a massively longer one under the scanning square code thingy...is that what I need?

Either the 8-character alphanumeric code or the really long barcode number (which is displayed in the app) will work to authenticate your pass(es) to buy tickets.

That is what I used and it worked. I did not bring the physical cards with me.

They have to cover their cost to put on the event.

The 20 digit code on the electronic pass will work also.

I checked last years ticket price and it went up 2.00 a piece. Last year out the door was 96 and this year was 100

The event is almost sold out. For anyone who wants to come who hasn't bought their ticket, now would be the time to do so.
