  1. ^$5,000 for three days for 5 people? Damn, is that staying in the castle? Plane tickets from Boston in October are around $200 per person. You can stay in a moderate resort for around $150 per night with the fall promotion and even get free dining if you stay 5 days. Our 5 day/ 5 night trip in October staying at the Coronado Springs and getting the free meal plan was $1,500 for two adults (+one two year old). Plane tickets for me from Memphis is the killer...around $345 per person.

  2. This is what was in the HW newsletter yesterday...


    What's the New Project for 2010?

    Ah, the question on everyone's mind these days: What's new for 2010?Yes, we will have a new thing for next year. Want to play along with our guessing game? Follow us on Twitter, our Facebook Fan Page, and the HoliBlog. Our big announcement will be Thursday, August 13, at 11 am CDT. If you're here as a guest that day, you're welcome to join us in the Holiday Theater (sorry, HoliDazzles fans, we'll have one less show that day). Park president Will Koch will proudly unveil his latest plan for making everyone smile. He's been working on this for several years and has been talking about it even longer. In fact...it's the second largest ride project in the park's history!


    So, that is implying that the 2010 attraction will be the second largest ride (in cost) in the park's history.

  3. Remember, Voyage was part of a whole land expansion. I think they said Thanksgiving land was in the 10-11million range. Now if they consider that grouping their largest ride expense, then we might actually see a ride in the 9-10million range. Hmmmmmmmm! What does a ____________ cost? Cause that's what I'm thinking.


    I'll finish it for you Guy...

    What does a Megalite cost? 10-12 million from what I remember seeing. Anyone confirm?

  4. The PR person for USO told me that the media day has NOT been set yet. If they don't have the media day set, I would assume an official opening date hasn't been set yet either. Soft openings are a different story of course.


    Yeah but is this person the same person that told you it would open "this weekend" (in reference to your post last week about it soft opening this past weekend)?


    Go back and look at my post dude.... I said "should" open not "would". During testing time, ANYTHING can happen to slow things down. That happens with pretty much every coaster installation anywhere.

  5. I believe that tower support will be used for a vertical/beyond vertical first drop, not the lift. Those lift pieces have space for the evacuation vehicle/track. As I have said before, vertical lift track doesnt contain space for an evacuation system as seen here from Fahrenheit http://www.rcdb.com/ig4049.htm?picture=12


    I know I know... This is a new track style completely so anything is possible. But, I doubt VERY seriously you will see a 300+foot lift hill that is vertical lifting a typical hyper/giga train this coaster will probably have.

  6. First off there is NO REASON for you to pay the full admission price at ANY amusement park that offers discounts. As a coaster enthusiast, you can join a coaster club on the approved list at http://www.holidayworld.com/clubs (RideWorld's club is $10 per year) and get the discounted rate of $26.95. Come in after 3pm and the price goes down to $23.95.


    As for the park as a whole, it is a family oriented theme park that has some world class thrill rides. For the coaster enthusiast, I can see where you don't perceive the value at Holiday World versus parks like Cedar Point and SF parks. But, for my family I know that for the price there is tremendous value at Holiday World due to the awesome waterpark and the 10-15 rides my two year old daughter can ride at the park. When she gets 4 inches taller, the number of available rides almost triples!


    The water park is so outstanding, you can spend a full day there and still not experience everything on a moderately crowded day.


    For those that don't have families, I don't expect you to understand fully what I am talking about. But as for my family, we visit the park at least twice per year and have a fantastic time doing so. For me, the coasters are icing on the cake of a great family get together.
