Get Ready to Go Behind The Themes

Editor’s note: Give Kids The World families experience lots of fun and excitement at the world’s leading theme and amusement parks. In today’s guest blog, GKTW Development and Sales Manager Steven Amos shares how you can experience some of that fun, too, and make dreams come true for brave children and their families.

When children and families visit Give Kids The World Village, they get to experience Central Florida’s world-class thrill rides and roller coasters. Now here’s your chance to get a special look at how those fantastic rides become reality on our Behind The Themes tours!

Our first Behind The Themes event drew a sold-out crowd to Sally Corporation – one of the world’s leading creators of dark rides and animatronics – and we can’t wait to host our next tour at Fun Spot America on July 28th.

During this all-day experience, you’ll enter the park before it opens and start your morning with an up-close look at “White Lightning,” the park’s wooden coaster. You’ll discover the mechanics behind the thrills and get exclusive access to the track.

The tour, hosted by CEO John Arie, will continue around the park, as John walks you through the history of Fun Spot America and takes you places normally off limits to the public. The tour will end with a catered breakfast and a chance to talk with the leaders of Fun Spot.

You’ll even get a Fun Pass, which gives you unlimited, all-day ride privileges to Fun Spot’s go-karts, roller coasters, thrill rides and Kid Spot rides!

And the best part? All ticket sales help Give Kids The World Village provide dream vacations for critically ill children and their families. Ready to go Behind the Themes? Click here to purchase your tickets today!
