That's exactly what we thought: https://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/any-peeps-wanting-see-other-mammoth-boats


I never even saw that blog post. :lol: Here's your chance to add Easter to your holiday lineup.


It's okay to venture outside of the TPR Clubhouse once in a while and read the HoliBlog. I'm pretty sure they'll let you back in afterwards ... ;)

I wasn't expecting that configuration. I wonder if the center seat will be drier than the rest.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

That is easily the coolest-looking water slide raft I have ever seen. And 8 people riding on a raft? That's going to be one heck of a fun ride.

Wow those are different looking, but very cool. My first thought when seeing them was "mini-van"

Holiday World has sent us a press release regarding a new Travel Channel show filming on location to highlight Mammoth.

Producers for the Travel Channel will travel to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari in May to shoot an episode of “Extreme Water Parks.”

“We’re told Mammoth – our new water coaster – was top on their list for this new show,” says park president Dan Koch. “We’re launching a video contest to search for featured riders for the upcoming shoot.”

The park’s “Super Fan Family” contest is explained on the park’s website: HolidayWorld.com/SuperFanFamily. A family of up to six members will win season passes, HoliCash, use of a Bahari River Cabana, overnights in one of the new Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, plus the opportunity to be the featured Mammoth riders during the Travel Channel shoot. Producers for the Travel Channel will judge the video contest.

“Anticipation for Mammoth has been huge,” says Koch. “We’re in the testing stage right now and the test dummies come back into the station smiling ride after ride.” Mammoth is a record-breaking one-third mile long, with seven hills, including a steep 45-degree drop. Six- and eight-passenger boats are propelled uphill by linear induction motors.

The Mammoth episode of “Extreme Water Parks” will air on the Travel Channel, which is available in nearly 96 million U.S. households, later this summer.

Holiday World will open its 66th season on May 5. Splashin’ Safari, named the nation’s #1 water park by TripAdvisor.com, will open for the season on May 11 with the premiere of Mammoth – the world’s longest water coaster. For more information about the parks, visit HolidayWorld.com or call 1-877-Go-Family.

Yes, it's a shame that the Timberliners aren't on track yet, but I'm still geeked enough about the new track work and reprofiling to extend my trip to Indy for DCI finals an extra day so I can head down there and get some rides. The video looked great! I wonder if there's going to be some extra airtime in the turnaround section now?
