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

So, I think i'm going to burst my HWN cherry next year and finally take the trip (before I get too old).  I've never did a several day coaster event so I have no idea what to expect.  I've also never

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.

Hmmm RavenMaven I'm not sure if you know but of the 8 Million do you know how much the Mayflower actually cost? I'm always curious about the cost of a flat ride.

 

It's a not a major portion of the budget. (You wouldn't believe how much the parking lot improvements cost - ghastly!)

Another very smart addition by HW - a classic ride, perfect for the audience, perfect name, great placement in the park.

 

I also like that they're building it over water and with a nice lighting package - hopefully will look awesome during Holiwood Nights!

 

And is it just me, or is anyone *almost* as excited by the every-Friday-night fireworks?

 

Anyways, congrats, and here's hoping for a new (awesome) coaster some year soon!

I figured it was just South of Giraffica, next to Gobbler and across from the Cafe

 

That's correct.

 

 

ahhh ok so as your going into Gobbler's getaway it'll be to the left of there?

Awesome! A great family ride that couldn't be any more appropriate for the Thanksgiving area!

 

Also I got to come to Holiday World this past Labor Day weekend and the park feels immensely bigger thanks to the placement of Hyena Falls! Great to see the park improving more and more!

The other additions sound great too, especially the added restaurant in the water park. Holiday World certainly seems to have a long term commitment to the guest experience, as they continually upgrade their infrastructure and amenities.

 

This is what sets Holiday World apart from most parks. I'm glad that they're spending their money wisely, and not throwing a bunch of rides down in a field, without thinking about what the next 10-20 years are going to look like.

Paula, I gotta say, that video was amazing. Whoever put that together did a better job than the big corporate parks!

 

However, I would bet my summer Six Flags paycheck that we're gonna see another announcement for 2014. I believe this is their best PR "trick" ever. Make everyone think that it's an awesome flat and then come out with something else. Besides, then the flat will get attention. If they announce two rides together, the big one would get all of the attention. This way, they get double the publicity.

^^ I kinda felt like the video was taking a shot at all those people who were saying HW is becoming a oversized waterpark and they don't pay attention to the dry side.

 

As for another announcement, that would be awesome!

That's actually a post from May of 2005: https://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/another-interesting-delivery

 

Back story: When we switched from Blogger to some horrible Drupal/Wordpress combo for the blog, a lot of the original posts were thought lost (the photos, anyway).

 

I discovered them recently in the Way Back Machine and am re-posting them one by one (we're working on a new website - and I want this transition to go more smoothly than the last). I missed putting the 2005 date in and it just posted it as if it were new.
