Update: Single Riders for GKTW

A couple weeks ago I posted an item about the Single Riders event at Kings Dominion in Virginia to benefit Give Kids The World. Well, the results are in, and the Coaster Crew (the enthusiast group who hosted the event) raised more than $3,000 for the beloved Florida charity.

As a recap: Coaster Crewers, along with fellow enthusiasts the Coaster Zombies, sought pledges for how many laps they could make on four Kings Dominion coasters on Sunday, April 26. The enthusiasts waited by the loading platform and when a single seat came available, they filled it.

When everything was done, the Single Riders took more than 400 trips around the tracks. Impressive! The results bring Single Riders' total donations to GKTW to approximately $12,000.
