US Thrillrides introduces the SkyBlazer™, the rebirth of a legendary attraction!

ORLANDO, FLORIDA –With the pandemic fading away and patrons swarming to malls, theme parks, and family entertainment centers, things are looking great for the recovery of the thrill ride industry.  US ThrillRides (USTR) has begun negotiations with many FEC’s and parks who are planning to update and upgrade their ride offerings to meet this new demand.

USTR founder Bill Kitchen wanted to do more.  In addition to building an order backlog for 2022 delivery, he wanted to help his favorite charity.  As a member of IAAPPA (The Global Association for the Attractions Industry) and a previous volunteer at Give Kids The World Village, Kitchen knew the perfect charity to support.

Rated Four Stars by Charity Navigator for 15 consecutive years, Give Kids The World Village is an 89-acre, whimsical nonprofit resort located near Central Florida’s most beloved theme parks that provides critically ill children and their families with magical weeklong wish vacations at no cost.  Since 1986, more than 176,000 families have been welcomed to the Village from all 50 states and 76 countries.

It wasn’t hard to imagine that lockdown and the long-term closing of theme parks this year was incredibly difficult for Give Kids The World Village and the families it serves.  The Village reopened in mid-January following a 10-month closure due to COVID-19, during which time the wishes of 6,000 critically ill children were delayed.  To help them recover faster and stronger than ever, US ThrillRides has initiated a new charity promotion.  For every ride purchased from US ThrillRides between now and the end of October, a donation of $100,000.00 will be made to Give Kids The World Village as a joint contribution from the ride buyer and US Thrill Rides.

With this collaboration, the theme park industry can continue to rebound while positively impacting the lives of countless families through a major contribution to Give Kids The World Village.

Organizations interested in participating are encouraged to contact US ThrillRides directly at 407-909-8898.  For more information about this promotion, please visit www.usthrillrides.com/charity.  For more information about Give Kids The World, visit www.gktw.org.
