It was confirmed in the Facebook comments made during the feed that they were restoring it... but they did not indicate whether or not that was the official 2017 addition.

^Very cool. I hope they decide to put it up for operation! I love those old rides.

Another clue from the video...
calpyso map.jpg


A map showing where the Calypso ran in 1972 (Coney Island, Cincinnati), then up to Fun Spot, then Holiday World in 2017. They also mention a "the names," perhaps they will have a naming contest for the new ride.

Oh that was part of my thought, no domestic beer. Only Irish beer that will not be cheap. ;)

Hope I'm not ruining any surprises... A classic Calypso would definitely be a nice addition!

I'm going to guess "Bison-tennial Spin" was a Paula creation.

It is in fact a Calypso - named Firecracker. It's a nice, interesting addition that will hopefully restore/bring back crowds and life in the 4th of July section. I mean I'm still waiting for a Screamin' Swing or HUSS Firsbee but yanno it's whatever :lmao:

PS - In case you couldn't tell, I'm 110% kidding. I love Holiday World, and the fact that a small park like this can add a first-of-its-kind B&M, then two more relatively large additions still amazes me.

Here's the link to the news release: http://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/2016/11/30/mannequin-video-reveals-2017-plans/
10: Manta (SWO) 9: Diamondback 8: Skyrush 7: El Toro 6: Gatekeeper 5: Maverick 4: Thunderbird 3: Banshee 2: Storm Chaser 1: Lightning Rod
Yes, I love wing coasters.

After watching the video it looks like it is going to be called Firecracker.
