Holiday World posted a clue as to next year's theme in their HWN Facebook group... I couldn't pass up the opportunity...

My tips are that you really don’t need two full days in the park if they’re running rides at full capacity, but they probably won’t be next year in time for the event given the vaccine schedule.

Many have seen our theme for HoliWood Nights 2021: The Wizard of Ahhh...hs. But did you know we're doing some major work on one of our wooden coasters in 2021? It's more than 500 feet of eight layers

I just thought of this, but there is room where the old first-aid building used to be. If they removed that building and moved the entrance sign for Splashin' Safari down the path, they might be able to put something there.

 

Edit: after looking at the google earth images, it doesn't seem feasible to put anything in that space.

^ I'm not 100% sure, but I do believe they own that land.

 

Also, they could put a ride behind the Diving Show area, thus expanding the Halloween section.

^ I just thought that might be a good area for them to be hiding something like footers. Who would ever think to look over there while riding The Legend? You really never know what might be going on behind the trees at Holiday World. They were able to hide what little work that was being done on The Voyage behind the trees, before they announced it.

If the new addition is to the Halloween section, why would they announce it on Sept 13th and not wait till, actual Halloween. I understand that it's a Friday the thirteenth, but that really has nothing to do with Halloween, where as Oct 31st IS Halloween.

^ That's what I'm trying to figure out! Paula has said on Facebook that they plan on talking about 2014 next month, then she told somebody yesterday that the announcement day would give away what they're doing. It's all confusing! The name might have something to do with Friday the 13th though. The naming of the rides in Halloween section has been a little bit more elaborate than the rest of the dry park. The Raven was named after Edgar Allen Poe's poem The Raven and The Legend was named after Washington Irving's short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Can't wait to see what Holiday World adds. I love Frightful Falls but it is a bit dated, I'd love to see them upgrade that attraction and maybe extend the layout to include some indoor sections, maybe a second lift and series of drops before the final lift and drop.

 

I always thought some kind of indoor/outdoor log flume themed to a playful haunted house could work really well in that section of the park.

I think it is obvious that Holiday World will announces a new Labor Day area of the park on Labor Day!

 

Paula, sorry to steal your thunder.

 

Dang, you got it! Wait till you see the new Sally dark ride we have planned ... take a ride through the labor and delivery process over the centuries. It'll be a screamer!

^And to think I was hoping for an Arbor Day section--another dream destroyed!

 

We considered that ... but decided to leaf it alone.

 

Wouldn't want Holidog to bark up the wrong tree ...

that sounds like a clone almost of the most disturbing walk-through from the Mexico TPR trip earlier this year!

The only thing that seems weird about a Halloween addition is that I remember them saying that they want to work on expanding the park outward by Thanksgiving first to help spread people out instead of overcrowding the front.

 

But who knows, they could be getting "The Bat" wing coaster from the fake Kings Island leaked webpage back by the legend helix.

^^ What about those spinning splash battle ones. Either one of those would do wonders in that area of the park!

I hope I'm not getting the wrong idea of what you meant...

Isn't talk like a pirate day coming up in September?

 

Convenient how she didn't respond to this...

 

Pirate Splash Battle back by Giraffica anyone?

 

With as many issues as there has been with Giraffica, perhaps they're tearing it down and putting in a Splash Battle as a replacement?
