FORT MYERS, Fla.- Zoomers Amusement Park just opened its doors this week, and on Saturday, it was a special day for charity.
From 9 a.m. to noon, visitors could pay $20 for all access to the park, with all proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.
The amusement park offers a varity of attractions including bumper boats, go-karts, a roller coaster, mini golf, arcade games, and more.
Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House Charity Laura Ragain says she was thrilled to partner with Zoomers for their first weekend.
She says the money helps support the families who stay at the Ronald McDonald house. "We ask for a modest donation of $10 a night if a family can afford it but no one is turned away for inability to pay, and quite honestly a majority of our families are not able to pay and this should be the least of their worries, so events like this mean a great deal," she says.
