Disaster Transport has been a part of Cedar Point's list of attractions since 1985 when it was originally an outdoor ride.  In 1990 they decided to close it in and turn it into the space themed ride that it is today.

In less than a week though, Disaster Transport will be gone from America's Roller Coast forever.  Cedar Point is paying tribute to the ride though, and helping to Give Kids The World at the same time.

At Disaster Transport Final Dispatch: A Mission for the Kids, guests can become a part of history while helping children with life-threatening illnesses and their families make memories that last a lifetime.

Participation includes complimentary all-day park admission for non-season passholders, an hour of exclusive ride time on Disaster Transport, VIP access to a private reception, a commemorative event t-shirt, a special souvenir and eligibility for the the last ride with the lights on. The top three fundraisers will also receive prizes!
