It doesn't look as weird as you think. I mean they are Converse, they all look the same. It isn't like wearing two different brand of shoes or two different styles. It is like the rails of Joker at Discovery Kingdom and the Joker free fly clones.

I don't think it's a big deal if it's for like a pep rally or you're going to a school game. I wouldn't wear them just on a normal school day though haha. Now, let's get back to Holiday World.

The Firecracker teaser wasn't even released until Nov. 30 last year and official ride name and details weren't released until the first week of January 2017. So I'd say we could have 3-4 more months to wait if it's close to the same scale of ride. If it's bigger, it may come sooner.
(Mayflower was announced at the end of October for 2014.) They really like to draw these things out.

I would do that on school spirit days. We don't really have pep rallies as the principal thinks they are a waste of time so.....
But yeah, back to Holiday World.

While there's no doubting that as I've seen people climbing shade canopies and taking their shirts off mid-cycle and throwing them away. If you make something idiot proof, someone will just make a better idiot. :butt:

It depends on the magnitude of the ride. If it was something they thought was going to drive season pass sales, they would have announced it already. To me, it seems like the park is still paying off Thunderbird. The Capital they are spending seems to be going all to infrastructure improvements. I believe they're obligated to get the rest of Legend Lot paved or concreted over the next few years and that's not very cheap, especially considering how big that parking lot has become.

I'm really curious to see what will end up in the Pilgrim's Plunge spot. It would be nice to see something sooner rather than later.

A third water coaster!

Seriously though, that would be awesome.

Nice to see Holiday World taking home some 2017 Golden Tickets. No huge surprise, but always good to see! Especially for a fanboy like me.

- Cleanest park (hmmm... but SF Great America keeps claiming this?? Oh SF, you so silly)
- Best water ride
