Join the fun!

Whether you’re a roller coaster fanatic, amusement park fan, or just looking for a fun day out, join us for a thrilling day in support of Give Kids The World Village and the kids we serve.

Why Register?

Remember the first time you rode a roller coaster? The excitement, the laughs, and the joy? You can help give all that to children and families who need it most. Local amusement parks from around the country have partnered with Give Kids The World Village to host Coasting for Kids fundraisers. Your day of fun helps us give children with life-threatening illnesses and their families dream vacations in Orlando, FL, the theme park capital of the world.

How it works

Pick your favorite amusement park from those listed above. Register for the event, and create your personal fundraising page. Raise at least $100 before the event, and you’ll get to celebrate with us at and exclusive park event!

Attention Amusement Parks!

Want to highlight a new attraction, increase attendance during the off-peak season, boost sales or showcase your goodwill to your community? Register your amusement park to host your own Coasting for Kids event. Give Kids The World Village much like an amusement park is a place where families make memories to last a lifetime. You can be part of that by hosting a Coasting for Kids fundraiser. It’s a great way to impact your community and help some very special children and families!
