Waldameer Mega Disk'O First Ride Auction

© 2009 Waldameer and Water World

First ride auctions are quickly becoming a standard operating procedure around the industry, and what a wonderful new tradition it is. Waldameer is among the many parks who have organized such events for their new 2009 attractions, and time is running out to place your bid! The park is auctioning off the inaugural ride on their new Mega Disk'O to the highest bidder, with all proceeds benefiting the John Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation. The auction winner--who presumably will need to round up some friends--will be entitled to all 24 seats on the ride when it takes its first spin on Saturday, May 2.

As an added charitable bonus, Waldameer will be offering rides on its Mega Disk'O to the general public throughout this special event weekend (May 2-3) for $3 per person, $2.50 of which will also be donated to the John Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation. Kudos to the park for doing so much to raise money for a great cause! If you'd like to be among the first to experience Waldameer's new Mega Disk'O, visit the park's web site for details on how to get in on the action.
