Holiday World (HW) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Raven Maven I will go ahead and apologize to you now for all of the enthusiast who will be hounding you for information on the new ride during this years Holliwood Nights! We know you can't tell us anything, but we sure hope you might let something slip!

Looking at that overhead view to me it sure looks like it could be a possible Aquatrax layout. The reason I say this is not much room back in that corner for a big que so I'm thinking its going to be the Giraffica/PP station, the first hill is going to dive over top of the rollout out of Voyages 2nd hill and curve around back to the station. It'll either go out or come in between Hyena Falls and Voyage given the survey markers. I don't see them circling Hyena Falls and now the kiddie bumper boats and then deciding oh, we will just circle both in with the Thanksgiving expansion. An Aquatrax ride would fill the void left from Giraffica and still be accessible from the water park side and the amusement park side. Just speculating but this seems the most logical.

^Yup! I wonder how Mack's prices compare to Intamin?

Well, I remember from a back stage tour at Hershey Park that both Intamin and Mack put in a bid for the Skyrush project. The park actually, slightly preferred Mack's design, but Intamin was significantly less expensive.

Really? I'd figure it would've been the other way around... I figured Intamin and B&M are the top tier of the most expensive coasters followed by Mack and/or Vekoma for steel coasters.

^^Really? I imagined Intamin would be the most expensive has they've made a bigger name for themselves than Mack, when it comes to big coasters.

Would the mack also be over 200 ft tall? I wonder what the design could be.

^It surprised me too. That may be why we haven't seen too many large Mack coasters pop up after the success of Blue Fire. I assume the design was for a hyper coaster, but I really don't know. Additional development time/expenses for Mack's first hyper could have contributed to the higher price tag.

 

A ride like Helix would be a great fit for Holiday World, though. My best guess at this point is still some sort of launched coaster with a 48" (or less) height requirement.

I'll be honest I really hope this is not a water coaster. I feel those rides feel lacking to me. I really hope this is a straight up airtime filled roller coaster! Either way though it ain't up to me and this is super fun! Roll Call! Who will be at Holliwood Nights this weekend? We should meet up! TPR meet and great!

Unfortunately I won't be there for Holiwood nights due to other commitments but I will be there all day Friday with my youngest son's field trip. It'll be interesting never volunteered to be a chaperon on a field trip before.

We've been preparing all week for the onslaught. I've taken it upon myself to shred all sensitive documents, company-wide.

 

Oh, wait ...

Ha! You can never be too careful

When did they remove the last car on the voyage trains? I imagine it was due to the car being a rough ride?

 

Raven explained it a few pages ago. Early in the season they run 6 and once it gets warmer and busier they add a seventh.

Just going off the clues, I'm wondering if it's not a launched family ride. I'm thinking that an outside top hat is likely. Maybe like a launched hyper family thing? With a barrel roll and a Splashdown? WTF?! Lol

 

Don't forget the most important clue, drawings of Mayflowers (the flower not the ship) it's going to be themed to plants... lol

From Day 11: "The children look to the skies and imagine what secrets exist within the massive clouds. We may never know but will surely dream of them tonight"

 

Hinting at record-breaking height?

A coaster so tall you need oxygen masks!

Production costs are cheaper when you've built so many more. Tooling, machining, engineering, etc.

I dont know if anyone has noticed this but if you look on day 12 on 66 days at sea on one of the pictures there is a play button. If you click on it it plays a video of a camera in a pool of water swaying up and down. If you look closely when the camera rocks upwards it look like Splashin Safari considering the camera was swaying in one of the pools. I don't know if this was simply just to show that the seas were swaying or it was a clue that something big could be coming to the waterpark.

Maybe a waterpark expansion with the new coaster? Or here's actually what it could be, and I don't know if anyone has ever considered this. The park talks about how each day will give little subtle clues. Perhaps the water indicates maybe a water theme or maybe even a splashdown break?

I was there earlier today with my son's field trip and after the rained stopped and all the rides opened I got to ride all 3 coasters. I was very impressed that all 3 were smooth rides all in the front seat. I was totally blown away by Legend, I came off it with no aches, bruises, or sore neck. I couldn't believe I got off Legend feeling pretty fine... My question is the lights in the tunnels on Legend have they always been there and I just haven't noticed? The lights were turned on when I rode and I was like wow, why lights in tunnels?
