Cedar Fair Entertainment Company is partnering once again with Give Kids The World to host the 6th annual Coasting For Kids coaster riding marathon fundraiser. Visit Cedar Fair’s best-loved theme parks for marathon rides that will make a difference in the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses. For more information or to register, please visit CoastingForKids.org.

Join the “ACE for Kids” Team!

ACE members who participate in Coasting for Kids are encouraged to join the “ACE For Kids” team! Last year ACE raised over $20,000 for Give Kids the World, and this year we’ve set our goal higher. The primary goal of Coasting For Kids is to raise funds to support the mission of Give Kids The World and help provide cost-free vacations for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

What is Coasting for Kids?

This annual event is held at every Cedar Fair park, and the schedule for each park is described on the CoastingForKids.org web site which will be updated as more information becomes available. Each park will include a ride session on one or more coasters, plus other activities for the participants to make it a great day at the park.

To participate, go to the individual park site and follow the instructions to register as a participant. Registration is $25 per person. During the registration process, you should join the “ACE for Kids” team.

In order to participate in the marathon each participant must raise a minimum of $75 in donations prior to the event. You are able to set-up a fundraising page as part of your registration. Please note, however, that the $25 registration fee and $75 fundraising must be reached by each team member in order to participate. Top fundraising prizes are awarded on an individual basis.

During the event you do not have to stay on the coaster for the duration. Breaks throughout the day are mandatory and you are more than welcome to come and go as you please. Bathroom breaks, or just breaks from riding in general, are allowed and encouraged.

And if you can’t make it to the event, you can still participate by donating to other “ACE for Kids” team members, or you may register at no cost as a “Virtual Rider” and still raise funds as an event participant.
