Wild Waves Is Thinking Pink

Wild Waves Theme Park has unveiled a new pink paint job for the park's 125 ft. Skycoaster - known as the I-5 Dive, and its goal is to help raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The park selected the Skycoaster for an all-pink makeover due to its size and proximity to the nearby highway.  A portion of the proceeds from each "flight" on the ride will go to the Susan G. Komen fund.

“When I agreed to return to Wild Waves, one of my goals was to rebuild the park’s community connections,” said Wild Waves President Jeff Stock. “I have deep roots in this community and I am so excited to announce this partnership and our donation to the amazing work of the Komen Puget Sound Affiliate.”

As if the park's efforts were not enough, Jeff Stock has challenged other theme parks to paint their Skycoasters pink as well, and donate a portion of their profits from them to the Cure as well.

A local news affiliate has a video up of their adventure on the ride, along with breast cancer survivor Margie Resander, seen above.
