726 daredevils want to take on the Challenge: 24 hours in the fastest, longest and highest wooden roller coaster of the Benelux, Troy. On 4 and 5 June, twelve of them will take part in the Troy Coaster Challenge 2016 for charity: Stichting Heppie, because every child deserves attention!
24 of the 726 applicants have been invited for the test day on 15 April. “On the test evening we will simulate for two hours that the Troy Coaster Challenge is actually running. This allows us to see what our participants are made of and at the same time try to find out what motivates them”, says Cynthia Hensen, spokesperson of Theme park Toverland. After the test evening the final selection of 12 Troy Coaster Challengers is made.
The Troy Coaster Challenge 2016 is organised on behalf of Stichting Heppie. Heppie is a foundation for vulnerable children in the Netherlands who are socially excluded and are on their own thanks to poverty or serious problems at home. Heppie shows there’s a difference by organising holidays and weekends of relaxation, joy and happiness. A place full of positive attention, where they can make friends and above all, be a child with no worries.
“We want to help Stichting Heppie so that more children can enjoy a carefree holiday. We help by making it possible for you to buy a seat from €10 in the Troy Coaster Challenge. Besides the 12 challengers who take on the 24-hour challenge, visitors can take part for 15 minutes by buying one of the remaining seats on the wooden roller coaster Troy via Toverland-tickets.nl. This way they can directly support Stichting Heppie” says Hensen. View all news messages here.
