Some people knit. Others play golf.
The groups traveling to Cedar Point on Friday make roller coasters their life-long hobbies.
More than 1,200 coaster enthusiasts across the United States will participate in the park's 19th annual CoasterMania event, where certain rides will open exclusively for them.
The group will have a lot of exclusive ride time, also known as ERT during their day at Cedar Point. The group will also meet with top park executives for a question and answer session. A lunch will be catered to the different groups and a scavenger hunt will take place where the enthusiasts can win Cedar Point memorabilia.
"It's a fun event," said park spokesman Bryan Edwards. "We've had a great relationship with these organizations over the years."
