  1. Where is the camera for the rider pictures located on Thunderbird?
  2. Thanks for the kind words guys. This was my first attempt to completely document a park. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I think I'll do the same for my home park (Holiday World) next season when Thunderbird opens.
  3. It's Monsoon season I hope this camera is waterproof... SKLOOSH! Nice splash, but nowhere near as dramatic as Mile High Falls at SFKK. Here's the path to the Ocean...I meant gift shop Kiddie area Great tipping bucket play land Lazy river along with raft ride in this shot. Nice family fun pool These type of body slides are getting harder to find. A wedgie in the making Nice adults only pool with a swim up bar and basketball goals They have a full court sand volleyball area too. Nice! A mess of slides. Let's go check out the new hotness. Verruckt!? Quit
  4. Every year I have to spend two weeks in the Kansas City area on business. I usually have one free day during the trip and every year I take that day and visit World of Fun. This is my sixth visit and each time I love the park more and more. However because it is smack dab in middle America, it doesn’t get quite the coverage it deserves. This TR aims to fix that. So without further ado, I give you a complete walkthrough (If I missed anything, cut me some slack. This isn’t my home park.) of both Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. There's nothing quite like the feeling you get when you fir
  5. Has it been mentioned if Thunderbird is going to have a single rider line?
  6. I'd love one more ride on Chaos at Opryland. I can still hear the theme music and smell the fog from the machines.
  7. I have a 8, 6 & 2 year old I've been taking for years. There's a TON of things for the little ones. Pretty much the entire Christmas section is for small kids. There's about a dozen rides for them. And of course Santa is there everyday! There's also Holidog's fun town with more kiddie rides and a kiddie coaster along with a large playground. Several of the "big" rides are great for smaller kids including the Antique Cars, Carousel, Turkey Whirl, Gobbler Getaway, and more. And I'm not even going to start listing all the things they can do in Splashin Safari. It would take too long! Let
  8. Was at the park today and got these pics. About 10 pieces of track were on site and a few supports. Nice progress happening on one of the structures. Looks like the LIM house, but I'm not positive. Also got a peek of several cement trucks past the Voyage crossover point pouring footers. Enjoy!
  9. Agreed! 10 years ago, Thanksgiving (along with The Voyage) and a good deal of the current Splashin' Safari were too good to be true fantasies that nobody thought HW would ever consider adding...let alone cough up the big $$$ to pay for. And look at the place now. Now try to imagine what they might have in store for us in the next 10 years! So glad this is my home park. I've been visiting multiple times every year since it was called Santa Claus Land and being witness to and a part of the transformation has been amazing. Dare I say it's been the most dramatic in the history of the indus
  10. Here's the full Timberwolf "accident" story: http://www.kctv5.com/story/26137906/mom-says-son-got-concussion-on-worlds-of-fun-roller-coaster Kinda sketchy if you ask me. The guest was cleared by park EMTs and yet the Mom called 911 an hour later? Hope the kid was okay but this smells like a cash grab. That said, WoF needs to do something with Timberwolf. Perhaps RMC. It's a photogenic ride, but needs help desperately. It seems okay at first...and then you walk across the park and take a lap on Prowler. That instantly puts a huge spotlight on Timberwolf's deterioration. I mean you
  11. ^ Yeah the word is that the long term plan is that Thanksgiving will eventually be located at the center of the park.
  12. It absolutely is. Wish he was here to see this. He would have loved all of this. The whole campaign is the first time I've really felt like HW was doing things "Will's way." The suspense, enthusiasm and showmanship were incredible with a final reveal that took it all to the next level. Well played Paula/HW. Unfortunately, now you have to figure out how to top yourselves in 2016!
  13. Forget the coaster, HW is changing from Pepsi to Coke in 2015!!! As told by the lemon chill guy... Also, many last second press releases put the coaster at $22M! http://fox59.com/2014/07/24/new-roller-coaster-holiday-world-to-announce-22-million-expansion/
  14. Here's a good ride report with pics: http://gizmodo.com/how-not-to-die-on-the-worlds-tallest-waterslide-by-som-1603998450/+Fahey
