What they are saying

I cannot say enough good things about Ira Gordon and ThrillCoaster Tours. I have very high standards about programs for my kids (even though they are teenagers) and ThrillCoaster Tours has exceeded anything I could ever dream of. What an experience for my son. His three summers with ThrillCoaster Tours have been amazing. Ira is the perfect mix of a person that both parents and teenagers love!!! Thank you. I am planning on sending my daughter next year. ---Parent 2005, 2006, 2007

Not from the Tri-State Area

NOT from the tri state (NY, CT, NJ) area, but still want to experience more than 2 weeks with ThrillCoaster Tours?

We have had campers from: Texas, Washington State, California, Ohio, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire, Mass and Florida... add your state to our list!!!

Here is your answer...
We can get 'surrogate' homes for you to stay in for the weekend(s) in between the tours. This provides you with a safe place to stay, and some more time with your friends. There will be a small fee for this service (for food, entertainment, etc.). Contact us if you would like more information

Would you like to be a 'surrogate' family?
If you would like to assist us with housing any 'non area' campers, let us know! We will cover expenses for the weekend.

Fees for the Out of State Camper...

Out of Area campers are responsible for the following additional fees...

  • Airline fees
  • Hotel fees if needed
  • Car services to and from the airport / surrogate families homes
  • Fees for meals/entertainment while at a surrogate home. 
  • If a representative has to enter the airport to pickup child an additional fee will be charged (some airlines require that an adult meets child at the gate, please confirm when purchasing your ticket, as it might not be possible)


We will work closely with you so you can make the best arrangements possible.
