Holiday World (HW) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I went to Holiwood Nights for the first time ever this year and it was fantastic! If you've never gone, I highly recommend it. I filmed this off-ride video of Voyage while I was there both around the park and on the backstage tour. The backstage tour didn't go to the spaghetti bowl this year but I seriously can't complain! The park catered the group to a nacho bar behind Thunderbird instead!

 

 

(How do you embed videos? lol)

I'm thinking about doing Holiday World and Kentucky Kingdom on the same day (KK first then HW). Would that be possible? (I'm not a big water park person)

 

I think the parks are only a little over an hour apart so it's totally possible. KK is always empty and HW doesn't usually get too busy from what I've seen, and both parks are pretty small as well. I would totally try out the water coasters at HW even if you're not a big water park person, they're something else!

If you're not doing the water parks, it is absolutely possible. Although, anyone on these forums will tell you that you might be missing out on something amazing if you choose to skip Mmamoth and Wildebeest water coasters at Holiday World (and I would agree with them, because they're both fantastic).

I've done it. Also, because of time zones, you gain an hour when driving from KK to HW. Although you'll probably feel rushed and will miss out some detail, you can still get a lot done. I did both parks on a Monday in August and was able to get in about 5 rides on each of the major coasters at both parks.

I used to really enjoy the podcasts back when they first came out, and I really appreciate the effort the team puts in to making them, but I have just found it so difficult to sit for over an hour and listen. Maybe on long plane or car rides, but those aren't too often. If they were 20-30 minutes, I would be all over them (it's SO cool that they do podcasts). But when they're an hour+, I loose interest after a little bit. They really are interesting though, and you get to learn all about the park and what they have up their sleeves for the season.

Sorry folks, it IS boring, LOL. As a matter of fact I lucked out because I did skip ahead and landed on the part of the discussion where they were talking about the Timberliners.

 

I didn't listen to the whole thing....I swear

Man, I did not think that talking about roller coasters could not get any more uncool, but after watching that video...

Not only are they boring, but what Mike said. Pod Casts are well beyond my nerd tolerances.

Podcasts, in general, go a little too far beyond my attention span for me to keep up with them, unfortunately. The only long-format videos I tend to watch online are vlogs or livestreams of things I'm interested in, and those tend to be max 40 minute range. For long drives, I typically prefer to listen to music the entire time. It could be a topic I'm extremely interested in, but usually if it's just people having a conversation about it then I tend to mentally tune out at a certain point, unintentionally.

 

Holiday World's podcast, in particular, is a pretty interesting one that I like and they do a fantastic job at maintaining it in high quality too. I like hearing about little details inside and outside of the park and of people of interest. I just wish I was able to keep my mind from drifting off of listening to it (or any other podcast) for long enough.

^They have a chemistry like no one! They have created something really fun there! I look forward to that show every 2 weeks; usually listen in my car.

 

I've subscribed to other coaster and park podcasts in the past, but they never have the staying power. Or are overly annoying and acting-outy.

Holiday World just posted on Twitter 3 photos of them unloading something (covered in plastic) from a truck with the caption "What's in the Truck?.

 

Looks like a 2018 new addition..possibly the waterpark, but could be a dry ride.

I think Paula mentioned that she was partial to Valentines day. I like this idea. A tunnel of love ride would be fun. HW could use another indoor ride. Ohhh! How about a Cupid shooting dark ride? Cupid gets sick and you have to fill in for him on Valentines day by shooting laser arrows at people to make them fall in love.

 

I'm all for this.
