Holywood nights 2015 Photo trip report


Recommended Posts

So this year after a 8 year hiatus, we decided to get back to holiday world. What better way to visit the park than to go during hollywood nights.

 

I got to be honest, I was blown away not only by the parks new thunderbird coaster, but by the parks staff and cleanliness of the entire park as well. Thunderbird surpassed all my expitations. The theming, launch, and total ride experience were great.

 

The park staff was beyond friendly. I would venture to say that some Disney employees could take note. The event went off without a hitch, and we had boat loads of ert. The voyage, raven, and thunderbird were running great. The legend beat the crap out of me and I still have a sore back from riding it only one time. As for the mid course breaks on voyage, I did not notice any difference in the ride from when they were off. It was kind of a welcome thing as it gave you time to catch your breath. The voyage was being a little moody on saturday night, and kept stopping at the top of the lift hill. A few maintainance guys came out and added some oil to the lift hill motor and all was good after that.

 

The only downside to the event was a few of the enthusests. None were from TPR, but rather another "large" coaster club. One of them got walked out for his behavior. Another one was yelling at a park employee because the pirate boat was not open during ert. They had 1 employee switching between 2 of the flat rides, and this enthusest was upset about this. I just can't understand some people, and this is the type of thing that gives enthusestes a bad name.

 

Anyway, it was a great event, and I hope to attend again in the future....onto the pictures.

On our way down to holiday world, I passed this sign.

We also passed the original hall of justace.

Christmas was the first area of the park, so of course santa has to be part of that.

I have always heard great thing about the water park here and was going to check it out, but mother nature had other ideas.

130350064_Hollywoodnightsholidayworld2015130.thumb.JPG.a1c10796b7ca10c2c4b76873e83d108b.JPG

From what I saw of the water park, it looked very nice. The only water attraction I was able to get on was mammoth and it was great.

I was loving me some thunderbird. I was not expecting much from this ride, but I was waaaaay off. This ride was a blast.

The fountain you mentioned is the Applause Award given out by Liseberg amusement park. It's given out to parks whose "management, operations and creative accomplishments have inspired the industry with their foresight, originality and sound business development". Holiday World recieved it in 2004.

 

Nice trip report!

Great report! Hugely disappointing that there are actually enthusiasts out there who would even think about behaving that way PERIOD, let alone at an event where the park is CATERING to them. You've got to be a special kind of jackass to stoop that low. SMH.

Thank you.

 

I agree about the enthusiasts. It was embarrassing to me to even be near some of them the way they were acting.
