Event Details
Today I had the opportunity to attend the Patriot Media Day event at Worlds of Fun to celebrate the opening of there new roller coaster Patriot. I arrived at 5:30 am to be a fill in for the media broadcasts that were being done by the local media. I spent the early morning hours getting lots of rides on Patriot an inverted roller coaster built by B&M. The new roller coaster features a drop, loop, zero-G roll, immelman, high bank turn, fly over the station into a flat spin around into the brake run. The official announcement of Patriot came around 9:30 am with the General Manager Phil Binder doing the honors. After the announcement everybody enjoyed several more hours of riding Patriot along with some lunch that was provided by the park. I ended up riding Patriot around 60 times during the preview event. Below are some photos from Patriot Media Day showing the announcement, a few photos of the ride, a crystal display gift and my onride photo.
