    Signups have now begun for the June 8, 2014 version of Coasting For Kids!!

    This is not a DIS sponsored/organized event, but an event sponsored by Cedar Fair and GKTW, however we had a great group of DISers participate last year and hope to beat last year's total.

    There are 11 Cedar Fair parks throughout the country participating in the event, so find one near you.

    We have pre-loaded DIS Coasterpalooza (East or West) teams for each Park. Links to sign up for each team are in the next post.

    There is a $25 per person registration fee, which covers things like your admission, t-shirt, lunch, etc. Participants must raise at least $75 to actually ride coasters on June 8th.

    Hope to see you there!!

    I think I can drum up a few more!:thumbsup2

    If anyone is interested in joining us at Dorney, we will have both young and old...well not old but maybe middle aged...lol.
    Some of my dance students who are not big enough to ride the coasters are going to raise money and ride some of the rides they are big enough for. So if you're hesitant because you have small children or for any reason ....don't be! We had a blast last year and will have a blast this year.

    Also, if you can't participate but would like to show your East coast pride, you can make a donation to any coast team. Team West will not beat us this year!!

    Go Team East!!!:cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

    If you are considering signing up ... Just do it!!!! I had an absolute blast last year, met a lot of great people, and helped out an amazing charity. It is an all around win-win situation!!

    Hmm. My son is organizing a school team to participate at Cedar Point, but I am having a heck of a time figuring out how to post a link to the fundraising page on my facebook page. I must be missing something really obvious, because this part is really easy in other fundraisers I've participated in. Any hints???

    I have a couple questions that I do not see answered anywhere in this thread or on the FAQs.
    What does the $25 registration fee get you? Does that get you into the park on June 8? Or do you still have to have a ticket for the park?
    I thought I remembered last year that you did not need a separate admission, but I can't find that anywhere today.

    I understand that you are not required to marathon ride any attraction- you can just be in the park all day, right?
    If you do want to ride the featured coasters after a break, do you get in line with everyone else, or is there a "fast pass" line for people in the event?

    Thanks!! :hippie:

    The $25 "covers" admission, tshirt and lunch.

    For the featured coaster, we used the exit. No wait.

    What Tom said. At Dorney we had specified riding periods where they would have one train available for us at all times. You didn't have to
    Ride consecutively and could take a break whenever you wanted. You could also ride the other rides in the park but you have to wait in line with everyone else. We also had a free ride photo included with the admission.

    Thanks Tom & Justine! :goodvibes

    I am trying to convince my son and his fiance that this is a great way to spend a nice day!

    I am offering to pay their registration- I just have to find out if they are available!!
