This Gift of a Day Was Worlds of Fun

Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care patient Dale Edwards loves roller coasters and wanted to spend his Gift of a Day getting a “rush” from all the rides. A trip to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, MO was the perfect outing for this thrill seeker.

Bucket List Ride

Worlds of Fun has a 235-acre of amusements including Dale’s bucket list ride - The Ripcord. This wild attraction sends the flyer 60-80 miles per hour through the air in a 189-foot tethered free-fall.

That was just one of the many rides that Dale and his care team enjoyed in action-packed Gift of Day.

The Prowler

Another highlight was The Prowler – one of the world’s best wooden roller coaster. The wild ride took Dale and his team for a fast-paced trip through the park’s forest terrain.
