I would strongly caution our members about providing their email addresses for taking the quiz. You can always use a "disposable" email address for these kinds of things and protect your real email address. For example, mailinator.com provides unlimited throw-away email addresses with no registration required. See http://www.mailinator.com/.

Oh, yes. They will still provide you with your score, it is not sent to your e-mail address at all, so feel free to make one up or use a disposable one as Steven said.

I guess you would need to be from the Gurnee park to even have a chance at this test.

Rats! I didn't get them all!

There is, however, one incorrect question / answer-

"10) Many rides at Marriott's Great America were featured in television and radio commercials. Which of the following rides was NOT featured in a commercial?
a) American Eagle"

I know this is wrong, because I was IN the TV commercial for The Eagle!
Of course, you would have to have superman-speed vision to see me, as I was one of several dozen invited "extras" riding the coaster. The main cameras were focused on the plucky young couple starring in the spot.

We all volunteered to spend the day riding over and over during the filming. I forgot how many times we went around- I think it was something like 20 or so- and it got tiring! My friends and I were able to leave before filming was done for the day. Some of the last people there went around many more times.
I don't think I could have handled any more rides!

How Embarassing. I got only 5 of 10 correct. ranked 35 of 71. Then again, my home park is Santa Clara so I don't have any memoriea od Gurnee.

Ok, so last night my friends and I were creating quizzes for each other online, and I totally FAILED with a 0 on one so I decided to make this one, lol. They had never heard any of the multimedia on this site so I though it was a cheap way to get back, but of course, they're good at guessing. Anyways, I have a mistake on the Tidal Wave question because "The Tidal Wave" was said, lol. So here's the link:

Indeed America Eagle was featured in a commercial, less than five years ago.
