Start the weekend off with free fun.

Castles and Coastershas a new thrill ride and they're giving you a chance to try it out free.

On Saturday, from noon until 5 p.m., take 10 canned food items to Castles and Coasters and you'll get a free bronze pass.

That pass gets you unlimited outdoor rides.

That's a great deal because the regular cost for that pass is $24.99 and all you have to do is help feed the hungry.
