Bidding for 18 pairs of seats has begun and all proceeds from the auction will benefit Komen Kansas City for the Cure. Bids start at $100 and the auction ends at 10:00 am on Wednesday, April 22, 2009.
The first official rides will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2009, the grand opening of Prowler.
Bids can be placed on worldsoffun.com. A pair of seats will also be given away to a lucky winner through KCTV 5's Weather Blog.
Winning bidders will be among the first in the world to ride the Prowler wooden coaster. Winners will also receive a pair of commemorative first rider tickets, recognition at the ride, two admissions to enjoy the rest of the day, two 2009 Good-Any-Day tickets and special park gifts.
KCTV 5 Chief Meteorologist Katie Horner and staff members of Komen Kansas City will be amongst the first riders.
Prowler is the seventh roller coaster at Worlds of Fun. The $8 million custom build wooden coaster spans 3,074 feet through wooded terrain in Worlds of Fun's Africa section.
The two-and-a-half minute, high-speed ride begins with a swooping 85-foot plummet followed by a seemingly endless amount of high-speed hills and sharply banked turns that hug the terrain below.
