Coasting for Kids 2013

Postby Jason Hammond » Jan 24, 2013 3:13 pm

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up. This years Coasting for Kids event at all the Cedar Fair parks will be on Sunday June 9th, 2013. I will let you know when more details become available.

When each park updates their details, they will be posted here:

Hopefully we can get more CWMania members out this year! It's a great time for a great cause.

hopefully my son is tall enough and i can bring the whole family instead of just my daughter, not that there was anything wrong with hanging with her all day last year.

If I have to work that day at 5pm, would I be missing out on any activities if I left the park around 3pm? or is the event pretty much over by that point?? thanks

Usually there's breakfast at 10am, lunch around 12 or 1, then just riding after that if I remember right. So you probably wouldn't miss too much leaving at 3.

who wants to skip meals and try for 100 laps with me ?

with the extra hour now until 6 pm, im not sure if its possible, got 67 laps last year, didnt start till almost 11, and left for an hour or so at lunch time, any takers ?

Also, since my sons not going to be tall enough ( i dont think anyhow) im going to bring him and my wife to just hang out at the park and do other things, will they be able to come into the park with us early ? We all have passes.

Never mind, it says registration includes park admission. Apparently I can't read real good.

Wow, I'm surprised it filled up! Unfortunately I'm not able to attend this year. May be in Texas riding the two Rocky Mountain update coasters down there ;)
