Club COASTER-net Discounts Have Returned

January 26, 2015 - Daniel Westfall

We've been working this off-season to get just the right mix of discounts for you and to find additional discounts that you may have been looking for. Through a new program we will now have access to discount for Disney World, Disneyland, Universal Studios Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood, SeaWorld Parks, Busch Gardens parks, all Six Flags parks and more, as well as select hotels, restaurants, and even discounts to some concerts and other events. We're also going to continue some of our most popular discounts like Holiday World, but they now have an online discount program so you will now be able to print your tickets at home or even at the hotel the night before.

It's that time of year again when we are looking to fill vacancies for various positions on the COASTER-net Team.

Lastly we'd love to add to our team of Photographers from around the world.

Dania Beach Hurricane and Boomers Close For Good

No plan to relocate coaster

A message on Boomers' website Monday reported: "We are now closed. Thank you."

Last week, the website warned that Sunday, Jan. 25, would be its last day of operation.

A woman who answered the phone Friday at Boomers confirmed that the center would be closed so owners would have enough time to liquidate its assets before its scheduled demolition, possibly in May, to make way for a planned shopping plaza.
