Eh, don't worry too much about the details! You'll get in, ride, have some fun, and do it all for a great cause!

The thing to focus on right now is raising more money! Hit up coworkers, friends, family, girl scouts (what? they get our money for cookies!!!), etc.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I haven't given yet. I'm waiting to see who is really trying to raise money and not just signing up and waiting for the money to roll in. Probably next week I will go over the list and see who has been trying and may need a little help. If you think you are one of those, pm me and I will see what I can do.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Gee thanks...now I want Girl Scout cookies.


I'm obviously not super worried about the details, it's just more of a curiosity and anticipation thing for me. Going to keep trying to raise money even if they stick me on Grizzly for 6 hours. ;)

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

My only worry is that they will post the details and it will say, "Congratulations! You get to ride Anaconda for six hours straight!"

CONTEST TIME!

I want to help a couple of Coasting For Kids participants who are STILL planning to ride, but who have NOT raised the minimum $75 minimum requirement to ride. Once again, this contest is only open to people who are planning to be at the parks on June 10th, but who have not yet raised $75.

Here's how you can enter to win a donation from me that will take you up to your $75 minimum...

Back in April, I went to Canada's Wonderland to take part in the Leviathan charity ride auction. While I was at Canada's Wonderland, I rode my 300th steel roller coaster. All you have to to be entered for a chance to win is to correctly guess which coaster at Canada's Wonderland was my 300th steel coaster! Easy, huh?

Hints: My 300th steel coaster was NOT Leviathan, and I did not ride Taxi Jam while I was there.

Rules: Only one guess per person. If you guess more than once, only your first guess will count. I will select two winners at random from all correct guesses. You have until Monday morning, May 21st, 2012 at 10:00am EST to submit a guess. If there are no correct guesses, or not enough correct guesses, I will select the remaining winner(s) from all guesses submitted. Depending on how much the winners need to get them to the $75 mark, I may pick more than two winners!

Now that I have typed the word 'guess' so much, it has started to look weird and incorrect, so please feel free to speculate instead of guessing!

Reply to this topic with your speculations, or PM me. Either way is fine!

Have fun!

I was listening to In The Loop, and they stated that all of the major coasters were part of the marathon. The coasting for Kids riders hung out in the stations and filled the empty seats on each train.
