After 23 years, Adventureland is saying goodbye to their Hurricane roller coaster. They held a contest called Last Ride for a Cause in which the general public could place a vote by making a donation to one of two local charities – and NSSA was one of them. This donation automatically entered donors to win a seat on the actual last ride of the beloved roller coaster and the top 6 donors per charity were guaranteed a seat on the ride.
NSSA got the most donations and was declared the winner so some of our students, staff and families were there to represent on October 13 at Adventureland, the day of the very last run ever of the Hurricane roller coaster.
Kids and adults waited excitedly to board the coaster…
They board the ride and begin the first ascent….
At the end, riders were presented with framed NSSA/Adventureland commemorative prints as a souvenir of their ride.
And NSSA got a generous donation from donors who entered the contest.
Thank you donors, and thank you Adventureland for letting NSSA be part of of your Last Ride for a Cause contest.
