Coaster marathon benefit set at Cypress Gardens

Published: March 15, 2006 at 10:22 AM

TPI reader Erik Yates sent me this note last week, and I apologize for not getting in the Blog Flume earlier:

"I have put together 'Coasting for Kids.' It will be a coaster marathon to be held at Cypress Gardens on Saturday, May 20th. We are riding for Make-A-Wish foundation, in order to raise money and awareness for the organization. The official press release can be read here."

For more information, or to sign up, call Erik Yates at 772-216-3778. There are a limited number of spaces available.

Which brings me to the second item in today's post: By popular demand, I've created a page for Cypress Gardens. I haven't been there since the HBJ days, so there are no attraction listings on the page yet. But our readers in Central Florida can add them. So, please, do. Thanks.

Ironic, isn't that where that kid got injured?

Yes, and we will be riding the same coaster that the kid fell out of. The only difference is that we will be following the rules, and wont be taking dares from other bonehead friends to stand up and put ourselves at risk. It should be a fun event, and we hope to raise a lot of money for a great organization. Thanks so much for the mention Robert.
