Hope for Hank Fundraiser

May08

Meet Hank Gibbs. A typical elevenyear old from the Sacramento area; He likes to play sports, get good grades, play drums, and visit his favorite amusement park, Funderland. What you may not know about Hank is that he is diagnosed with an incredibly rare and incurable auto immune disease, Parry Romberg Syndrome that will cause half of his face to “waste” away. While there currently is not a cure for this disease there are medical procedures available to help slow the process.  Unfortunately these procedures can be quite costly, and burdensome for the Gibbs family. So the “Hope for Hank” fundraiser was established to help the Gibbs family cover the increasing medical costs that they incur due to trying to undo the damage that Parry Romberg Syndrome has caused Hank.

Hope for Hank will take place on Friday, May 10, 2013 at Funderland Amusement Park and will be open to the public.  Unlimited riding will be offered for only $5 per person from 5pm until 8pm, and all proceeds will be given to Hank for his upcoming surgery. In addition there will be a silent auction, carnival games, face painting and more during the event.

Again, 100% of all ticket, auction, and face painting sales raised during this event will go toward the Helping Hands for Hank trust fund that will provide Hank Gibbs the opportunity to receive care to treat his rare and progressive auto immune disease. So come visit Funderland on May 10th to have a great time, and help Hank in his battle with Parry Romberg Syndrome.

Happy Tax Day!

Apr15

Any fun tax day activities planned? We’re thinking the day calls for some kind of chocolate!

April Showers…

Apr08

We love the cool mornings and warm, soft afternoons that come with Spring. We’ve even been enjoying the April showers, knowing that they bring May flowers. (Not to mention allergies…)

In any case, we already have a few flowers popping up in the park and look forward to more. And, of course, the warmer weather carries with it that faint hint of summer. Okay, that may be stretching it, but really school will be out before you know it and you’ll be in search of full-time family fun. But in the meantime, if you’re looking to take advantage of the fair weather and want to indulge in some outdoor fun, keep us in mind. Throughout the month of April, we’ll be open Wed.–Fri. from 11 am – 5 pm and Sat.–Sun. from 10 am – 6 pm (weather permitting).

And starting in May, we’ll be open 7 days a week. Now that’s more fun than you can shake a stick at! If you’re given to shaking sticks, that is. And speaking of May, don’t forget that moms get to ride free all day Mother’s Day. Moms, you may want to start dropping some hints now!

Anyway, as you plan out your next few months, we hope you include us in those plans. And if you’re feeling restless one of these fine spring days, come out for a spontaneous stroll or spin. There’s nothing quite like happy squeals of laughter to add zest to your day. The kids will love it, and you will too!

Here Comes the Easter Bash!

Mar04

Wow, this year is flying! It’s March already, and our thoughts are all about the Easter Bash. Yes, we’re gearing up for some more hippity hoppin’ fun!

This year’s Easter Bash will take place the weekend before Easter on March 22-24 (weather permitting, of course!) We’ll be holding Easter Egg hunts all day long for children up to age 12 for only $3.00 per child. The hunts will be limited in size so each child will have an “egg”stra fun time hunting for eggs and collecting prizes!

After your egg hunt, try piloting a Red Baron plane, taming our Flying Dragon coaster, or taking a spin on our Crazy Cups. You can also exercise your creativity at our craft table, or maybe you’d rather stop by our face painting pro and get yourself decorated! And, in all your adventures, keep an eye out for the Easter Bunny and our very own Happy the Squirrel! Excitement is always just around the corner…

Don’t forget, admission and parking are always free at Funderland, and rides are only one ticket per rider. Plus, if you bring in a new game or new art supplies for River Oak Center for Children, you’ll receive free tickets (amount of tickets based on item donated).

So hop on down to our Easter Bash this March 22-24 for an “egg”straordinarily good time for the whole family!
