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.

Well...that was an effective way to find the youngest posters on this board.

 

Back to actual them park stuff...what's it take to repaint/refinish large water slides like in Splashin Safari? I noticed most of them are starting to get REALLY faded. Especially Bakuli. There's a significant contrast between the top and the underside of the slide. The entire funnel on Zinga is faded/discolored as well.

Just an observation, and it may have been answered already, but I noticed on the pictures on page 709 that the Voyage is still running with 6 cars per train. I think I remember someone posing that question earlier this year to which Paula responded with something along the lines that they keep it at 6 cars and add the 7th as the crowd builds for the year. Well, it's August now and with that packed queue we saw on page 711 it just makes me wonder why they never put the 7th car on.

That was my question when visiting as well. In fact, I almost got into the 7th car queue for the back seat until I realized they were only running 6 cars. My guess though is it is just to save on track wear and tear. Even with that full queue, it only took 40 minutes to get on the ride and that included waiting an extra 4 or 5 rides to get the very front seat, so I guess it isn't TOO terrible.

That was me. Honestly the only thing the 7th car does is make the back seat a tad bit wilder ride. She said they were keeping it off so there would be less wear and tear on the track. If it keeps The Voyage running smoother, I'm all for it.

^ It was like that in June as well. I'm guessing the train needed some major overhaul or something. Very weird it has been gone all season.

It was definitely there for this year's Holiwood Nights. Sucks to hear it stalled, the ride did feel like it was tad slower by the time it reached past the helix, though barely noticeable.

^Interesting it's already in the track. For some reason I imagined they would add it when the track was already in place. How is it usually done?

The Legend stalled a few months ago on the turn around and I haven't seen the Train since.

 

When I visited yesterday, I noticed the same thing. To start, there is a sign posted near the entrance that was screwed in (clearly showing it wasn't a one day deal), that said "The Legend will operate with one train today". I thought it was kind of weird not to see another train on the transfer track. We had to wait a solid 25-30 minutes on a ride that would had been a walk on.

 

Not realizing until reading what you said, I didn't know it was as serious. I asked one of the supervisors on the raven and she said it was on a one train operation for maintenance.

 

I wonder what the issue could be with the train?

Don't those trains have some sort of automatic braking mechanism if it senses something wrong? If it's true that it stalled on the turnaround and hit the rollbacks, then it would probably take some work to get everything "unlocked" and operational again.

Premier & Intamin usually ship their launch track without LSMs installed.
