  1. ^ No arrows, though, depicting violence. We'd refer to them as "Heart Callers."
  2. Nope. As long as you're not wearing spurs that jingle jangle jingle, you're fine. [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  3. ^ A bit of our history ... Arnolds Park and their Legend were scheduled to be demolished and replaced by condos in 1999, the year we named and announced our Legend. Happily, the park was saved. But for those sweeties who've accused us of "stealing" the name, it was up for grabs at that point.
  4. ^ To build. But not to maintain. Why do we have so many wooden coasters? The late Will Koch LOVED wooden coasters!
  5. It was a sentimental return to the name of our "first" (actually, second) coaster.
  6. Thank you, but no. It was Eric Rentz, our Director of Attractions. If you listen to our podcast, he's the one who didn't wear pants during his job interview.
  7. Meanwhile, back on Planet Normal ... we had an absolute blast this week with WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley on our podcast: http://traffic.libsyn.com/holidayworld/The_One_with_Mankind.mp3
  8. We'll read you a nice story ... and maybe sing a song. Santa says he hasn't seen you in far too long ...
  9. ^ Could you possibly visit on a Friday or Sunday instead? Saturdays just get ... busy.
  10. Within a week or so - our digital media guy has been out of the office and we eagerly await his return.
  11. And ... those three hours just FLY by when you're listening to The Official Holiday World Podcast!
  12. ^ It helps that it's a straight shot east on I-64. We're hoping lots of St. Louis folks give us a look-see this season!
  13. No worries, we just haven't put our toys away following "evac training." All is well. Nothing to see here.
  14. ^ We drizzle ours with honey. Not that I've tried one yet ... still thinking about it.
  15. ^^ We're testing a more compact "Plan B" for this season. The flywheels are doing great, but we want a backup plan in place.
  16. Have any of you had a chance to check out The Official Holiday World Podcast? All three episodes are here: http://HolidayWorld.com/podcast (you can also subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher, etc.) We're eager for feedback, suggestions and questions - please use the hashtag #HoWoPo on social media. Thanks!
  17. ^ So our first podcast is in the can. (In this instance can is *not* synonymous for restroom. Although the acoustics in there are pretty good.) Stephen needs to add the opening and closing music and it should be available later this afternoon. We'll also embed it in a HoliBlog post. Uh, hope you have a long commute. We thought it would be 20-30 minutes. It ain't. Our on-the-ground copy of the Legend howl is not the quality we want to release, so we may need to wait until all the king's horses and all the king's men put Legend together again and we can grab a live recording from up top (well, not *me*). But, rest assured, it's on our list.
  18. ^ Ha! For every person who wants us to replace a ride, there's someone else begging us to never remove it. #ThemeParkProblemz
  19. Slackers all: Matt, Lauren and Leah. Plus me as wrangler. None of us truly has time to spare, but we really want to do this. We'll bring in others from our staff and occasionally industry partners, too.
  20. ^ To clarify: Those plans reflected that company's vision for us a number of years ago.
