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

They have already said at Holiwood Nights that the coaster isn't in plans for 2012, that is why they did that survey. They said they already have the 2012 plans complete and its not a coaster. But who knows, we shall see.

Next Wednesday's announcement for 2012 includes something for @HolidayWorld and something else for @SplashinSafari. #HW

 

A S&S screamin' swing would be a great addition to the 4th of July section IMO!

The 32-seat Screamin' Swing at Lake Compounce only cost $3 million ($2.5 mil for the ride, $0.5 mil for installation). Unless they are planning another Wildebeest-style ride for the water park (at $5.5 million, Wildebeest is the second most expensive ride at the park), I think the theme park side will be getting more than that. That said, I'd love to see a Screamin' Swing plus other new rides or enhancements on the theme park side -- the Screamin Swing is one of the best family-friendly flat rides I've ridden.

I know it is probably a little outside of the 9 million dollar price tag but I've always though it would be really cool to renovate the log flume to include an extensive multi-layer indoor section where the current old school out and back concrete flume section sits that is themed to a haunted house of some type. Have a show building sitting right where the concrete flat flume is now that has multiple lifts and mini drops and still re using the final splash down through Legend. Maybe even make it a shooting log ride of some sort, Ghost Blasters or whatever. Would be cool.

^ I have also thought about a Friendly Haunted House added off the tunnel at the start. I say next years addition will be a Giant Wheel, they say it's "Really Big" and Paula said working on the PR production, it made her "Woozy" and something else in Splashin' Safari to help with the crowd issues. I was just there this past Tuesday and the park and water park were packed, almost like a Saturday. Still had a blast though, but didn't get to ride Pilgram's Plunge because it kept going down through the day.

When I think of what SS is missing, all that I can come up with is a) Flow-Rider, b) Speed Slides. However, I doubt they would add speed slides, as they are not something you can enjoy with your family. (Wildebeest, Bakuli, Zinga, Zoombabwe, and Watubee all can hold 4 people per tube). As for HW, I don't want to sound like I'm jumping on a bandwagon, but S&S Screamin' Swing, absolutely! I can't think of a more perfect addition to HW (other than a steel coaster )

Wow, I hadn't even thought about that, but it makes so much sense.

 

Oh, and BTW, I was the guy who described the "triple-down" on Bert the Conqueror. I tried to explain it in terms that the GP would understand so that hopefully my interview would get used. Sorry to hear that I left a few of you dissatisfied.

I apologize if this is already common knowledge, but I don't recall seeing it posted it in here yet. The park will be announcing the 2012 additions on Ustream, at 11 AM CDT.

 

 

I'll definitely be watching, I haven't been following the project too closely, but the park saying its a "new twist on a classic ride" has me very intrigued.

I'm interested to see what the end up going with. For certain types of steel coasters 9 million is kind of a low number (B&M, Intamin, etc), but Holiday World isn't the kind of park that doesn't usually lays up with they're new additions. I'd expect it to be a smaller family style coaster of some type maybe a spinning ild mouse, or a euro fighter, or maybe a small launched ride of some type. Although a launched coaster for 9 million might be stretching it.
