It's a slightly different situation than when the Grand Hotel shut down unexpectedly last year, according Hotter'N Hell officials. The hotel did not take many reservations for the event. Only about 35 people are booked for that weekend at the hotel, but no money was put down for those reservations, said Filer.
Ten thousand people are expected to attend the ride, and weekend activities for Hotter'N Hell. Last year, HHH officials said they had about 150-200 host home volunteers but this year they are looking to surpass that number.
