So what happens to the GoFundMe money when it falls short of the goal? I assume any money raised goes to whomever made the page?

Just curious since this isn't going to succeed.

I'm not sure I want to know who or what "RotorMan" is, but it's nice to see people are already making fun of this on the guy's GoFundMe page! :lol: :lmao: :lol:

All money is *supposed* to be returned to the donors.

"Rotorman" or Fred (that's his real name) is a gentleman who has what would probably be diagnosed today as autism, or being on the autistic spectrum. He got his name cause he would literally ride the Rotor all day, he never spoke to anyone or would make eye contact which made people uncomfortable. He was however and very nice gentleman and once he trusted you enough he would talk to you. He would chat up the ride ops and was very friendly. He was just different at a time when things like Autism weren't in the spotlight or even well known or diagnosed (80's and 90's).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I never made it to this park, my question is why did so many seem to care so much about the park and its closure when they had Cedar Point so close by?

No, no, NO it's not! Please, do NOT make posts on our forum if you are clueless to what you are talking about or if you aren't going to bother to take 30 seconds to look up the information before you come here and post "fake news" making yourself look just as stupid as the people who are contributing to that campaign.

stupid people are the ones that dont bother to do any research before posting incorrect garbage.jpg

The way GoFundMe works is that you keep EVERYTHING. There is no stipulation at all to give money back if you don't make your goal.

Like, it's right there are the GoFunMe FAQ page:

Seriously this took me LESS THAN THIRTY SECONDS to find the answer.

Again, how stupid do you have to be to make a post like yours which is totally incorrect without even bothering to fact check what you just posted?

This is a really important post! It's unbelievably stupid that people just assume they get their money back when putting forth 0 research/effort in understand what they're getting into.

I've seen so many people get burned on commissions/toys/"limited releases" that have just flat out failed and the money invested in an idea is lost.
