^ I have NO idea what language this is you all are speaking.

LOL. . I'm old.


(seriously, it took me a good 20 minutes to realize Elissa and coasterbill were talking about Pokemon Go).

Watched your Snapchat this morning and saw that you guys are at my home park, Worlds of Fun! Can't wait to read your review about the park, within the next couple of days.

Finally getting caught up on this report. Looks like you all have had a lot of fun so far. Mystic Timbers looks really great, and I agree that Cedar Fair's recent additions to Kings Island have really done a lot for it. Can't wait to see the Missouri parks!

Our next stop was Holiday World! We also did a split night/next day here at this park which helped get some night rides in, do some filming in the early morning on some coasters and at the water park, but then head out so we didn't have a long open to close day. It was a very nice relaxing visit to the park! We actually spent more time in the water park this time around and if there is one thing I have to say as a ProTip for this water park (and really all water parks) is GET THE CABANA!!! I seriously do not think I can do a water park visit without doing one anymore. It's just so nice to have a place to relax, put your stuff, and have food brought to you all in a nice little private area. It's the only way to fly! :P

Anyway, here's some photos & video...

Image
TPR has just arrived at Holiday World! Time for some Raven Voyage Legend Thunderbird fun!!!

Image
Time for a front seat ride on The Voyage!

Image
Obligatory Santa photo!

Image
Sun has set and night rides on Voyage will be had soon!

Image
Image
Night ride on Legend...

Image
Image
Image
Still my personal favorite coaster at Holiday World!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The holidays of Holiday World! Halloween is my personal favorite!

Image
Image
Image
Like most TPR trips to Holiday World half the group ended their night on Voyage, half on Raven!

Image
Had a great evening! We will be back tomorrow morning!

Image
Good morning Holiday World! We are ready for day two!

Image
Image
Image
We have arrived at Thunderbird! Time for some ERT and filming on the world's only launched B&M Wing Rider.



Image
Image
Time to ride Thunderbird!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We would appear to be having a VERY good time on Thunderbird!

Image
Image
Image
The Thunderbird crew wanted us to share some coaster "nerd" shots of the control panel!

Image
The launch on Thunderbird is awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Just a few more awesome ridercam photos from our Thunderbird shoot!

Image
Taking some early rides on Mammoth at Holiday World because the water rides are just as awesome as the roller coasters!!!

Image
While we are here... might as well take a few rides on Holiday World's other awesome water ride Wildebeest!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We love Mammoth & Wildebeest! Some of the world's best water rides!

Image
Renting a cabana... the correct way to do a water park!

Image
Image
Still the best themed "Tilt-a-Whirl" ever!

Image
Image
I'm sensing a trend here...

Image
Image
What? Didn't you know the pilgrims traveled by roller coaster?

Image
An empty Raven station to get as many re-rides as you want is a beautiful sight!

Image
Image
Image
It's been a great water park day so far here!

Image
I love how well even simple flat rides are themed to fit the lands they are located in!

Image
Image
Image
As a personal tradition, I always take the last ride of my at Holiday World visit on Raven and that's exactly what I did... TWICE!

Image
Image
Had another wonderful visit to Holiday World! Thank you again for all the great hospitality!

Now please POST YOUR COMMETS! After all, we took the time to write the report, thru very least you can do is say something about it! =)

Great photos!! Holiday World is a major "bucket list" park for me it seems like such a nice relaxing park like Dollywood. Really need to make it out there in the next few years. Hopefully part of a Kings Island, Kentucky Kingdom, and Holiday World combo trip!
Roller Coasters provide a great escape from the depressing reality that is adulthood.
Top Coasters 1. El Toro 2. Intimidator 305 3. New Texas Giant 4. Millennium Force 5. Nitro
Top Parks 1. BGW 2. DW 3. CP 4. IOA 5. USF

Great report! Holiday World really is one of the best parks anywhere, and the absolute best waterpark I've ever been to. Glad you had a good time.
