Quassy Amusement and Waterpark in Connecticut, US, is partnering with Give Kids the World and its annual Coasting for Kids fundraiser in support of children with life-threatening illnesses.

Coasting for Kids will take place August 16 during National Roller Coaster Day at the lakeside park.

Those who have registered and raised at least $100 for Coasting for Kids will be rewarded with one hour’s exclusive ride time on the park’s two roller coasters, Wooden Warrior and Little Dipper.

Those who reached the fundraising goal will also be able to enjoy the other rides and waterpark, which open to the general public at 11:00.

“We have long supported Give Kids the World through IAAPA’s World Passport programme,” said Quassy president Eric Anderson.

“We envision Coasting for Kids as another way to assist with the incredible work Give Kids the World does for so many families.”
