    There is usually ERT in the morning (beginning at 7am) and in the evening (for 2+ hours after the park closes). No schedule for which coasters will be available during each session are available that I have seen.

    Two things:

    1) What is ERT?

    2) Is this only for ACE members?

    No, but there are additional deals that only ACE members will get in park.

    I want to go but its so soon after my birthday trip. Sometimes I wish I lived in CA.

    Just to echo what Pratt said:

    ERT = Exclusive Ride Time. Although, I will say that the last solace I went to was so crowded, it really wasn't worth it. I remember around Solace 4 (I think) we rode Xcelerator 28 times in one day, most of the time not getting off the coaster. I don't think you'd see anything like that anymore.

    This is also NOT an ACE exclusive event, but you do need to show some "affiliation" with a coaster club. Screamscape.com generally has something you can print out to show as your affiliation.

    Here is a copy of an e-mail I just got.... (Note, only those who buy the Hotel package get to attend the Friday events.)

    Hello Everyone,

    Just a friendly reminder that the deadline to purchase coaster solace event tickets is next Friday, February 15th.

    Click on the following link if you need the order form: http://www.aceonline.org/fliers/WinterSolace2008.pdf

    In addition, due to the high demand received for requesting evening GhostRider ERT on Saturday, Sierra Sidewinder ERT has been swapped with GhostRider ERT. A big thanks to Knott's for accommodating ACE's request.

    Here is the revised schedule:

    Who would actually WANT Ghostrider ERT????

    Last solace I went to, I rode it twice and that was PLENTY.
