… then you’ll want to join your fellow coaster enthusiasts for HoliWood Nights 2023 on June 2 & 3 for this trip back in time to Rydell High!

This year’s theme is: “Coaster Grease.”

This popular annual event is open exclusively to card-carrying members of amusement park-related clubs (see sidebar for Partner Club list) and their Guests.

Bigger fun. Smaller waits. 

We appreciate your support and feedback from our 2022 event: “Honey, We Shrunk the Event.” Since we’re hopelessly devoted to our enthusiasts, we listened and we’re making changes based on your requests. Most importantly, please note that tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis this year starting at 11am CENTRAL time on Tuesday, December 6.

All attendees must digitally agree to the Code of Conduct before submitting the form.
