It's time to return to the West Coast! Listener Meet-Ups are quickly becoming legendary.

Back in 2015, Mike and EB invited listeners to meet them on Memorial Day at Cedar Point. They held a breakfast in the parking lot, group rides, a free BBQ lunch and the first ever "Skee Ball Tournament."

The meet-up was so much fun, a second meet-up was held at Knotts Berry Farm later that summer.

In 2016, the show held meet-ups at Dollywood and Knoebels.

In 2017, the show traveled to Carowinds and Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

In 2018, the show held a double-header meet-up in Branson, MO at Silver Dollar City and Bigfoot Fun Park.

If you ask anyone who has attended our meet-ups, they'll tell you it's unlike any "coaster enthusiast" event. It's a laid back time to meet new friends and hang out with old ones. We try to do things differently... but still include mainstays like ERT, behind-the-scenes tours, a live podcast recording and our "patented" in-park contests and games.

For 2019, we're bringing the meet-up back to the WEST COAST! will hold its 2019 Listener Meet-Up at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA on Friday, June 21st.
