      I rode that about 10 years ago - and it was pretty rough - 13 hours is a long time.

        I've always wanted to do a roller coaster marathon.

        I'd much rather do this than eat a raw cockroach....

          Contests like this aren't unusual...but that doesn't seem like much of a prize for 13 hours of riding.

            I couldn't because I can't do backwards coasters. The backwards screws me up so much.

              With the God awful shape they keep that thing in, that would be tough!

                  I just called and asked for seats for Lisa and Myself...

                  And I like the "Jason" offer...

                  Anybody who can show ID that says there first name is "Jason" gets in free after 3 PM on Friday, October 13th...

                  And as for the Marathon prizes, the prizes are worth over $400, not bad....

                    Hmm - I dunno. 13 hours on that teeth-and-bone rattler seems like an awful long time to win a pair of season passes and the Fright Fest VIP access.

                        I probably could, but I have to do the whole working thing....my job is a tad more important than passes.........

                              I would so do this ... if:

                              I wasn't flying home from Indianapolis that morning

                              It wasn't Colossus. If this was Colossus of 10 years ago it would be an awesome event. But 2 or 3 rides on this ride is enough.

                                That sounds painful!

                                My best score ever!

                                  As much as I love backwards coasters (or at least the one at King's Island) i'd have to turn down that offer. So not worth it for a season pass, even if it is VIP. Those suckers do hurt after a time or two, I think i'd end up with damage if I tried that.

                                  Good luck to all who do enter.

                                    I could probably do it.

                                      Just got the call, Lisa and I are on the list....

                                      45 minutes on the coaster, then a 15 minute break, repeat another 12 times....
