Orange Chair Countdown

We’re getting down to it… Check the Orange Chair countdown on our website – only 12 days left until we call “Last Chair!”
Get up for your last turns this season before we take down the Orange Chair to be replaced with a brand new quad chair next year!

If you’re interested in getting one of the coveted Orange chairs, here’s how to prepare yourself for the First Come, First Serve Sale on March 22nd at 9am:

-Be at the sale website early:

-The form will appear at 9:00am on March 22nd. Click refresh or reload on your browser precisely at this time to see the form.

-Questions are on the sale website right now. Have all your questions already typed out in a separate area so that you can copy and paste all your questions into the form. All the form questions are required to have an answer of some kind in them. (Clicking submit before all the answers are filled will show an error message.)

-Have all your credit card information ready. The form can take the payment through Secure Online Credit card, by using the credit card entry form on the sheet, or by choosing PayPal.

Click “Submit”. Your chair is not secured until you have completed your form and clicked “Submit”. If your payment has gone through, you should get simple message saying that the form has been successfully completed. Once payment completion is confirmed, you will receive an email to the email address provided with confirmation of your purchased chair, a chair number and pick-up information. (This email may take up to a day)

-All chairs must be picked up, or arranged to be picked up on April 6th or 7th. Remember that it is approximately 10ft tall and 4ft wide so make sure to prepare for it!

***All chairs are as is (paint chips, graffiti, stickers and all!) No chair pads or grips included. It will need to be picked up in person (no shipping available) on April 6-7.
Limit one per family. ***

-After you’re done and can breathe a sigh of relief, hop over to this website to pre-order one of our Orange Chair commemorative t-shirts too!


If you go to the form and receive the following message: “The Orange Chair sale has now ended. We’re sorry if you missed this sale!” it means that all the chairs are sold out in the First Come, First Serve Sale. We’re sorry you missed it!

But you do have two more chances to get an Orange Chair through our Auction for Charity! There are 10 chairs up for grabs in these two auctions:

The dates of the Auction are: 
Auction 1: March 23 at 8am to March 30 at 8pm:
Auction 2: April 1 at 8am to April 6 at 8pm.
These auctions benefit 5 great local Manning Park charitable organizations. Pay what you want to have a piece of Manning Park history and know that your dollars are going to a great cause. Bonus – you may receive a charitable tax receipt for this donation!

We are also saving a few key chairs to use around the Resort, so if you don’t get one, don’t worry, you will still get to have your #IRodeTheOrangeChair moment at Manning Park Resort for years to come.

Come celebrate with us for our “Last Chair Fest” on March 31st, where we will be paying homage with a toast to the Orange Chair and having a great last day of the season. Join us to celebrate and send it off in style!
