This from screamscape: http://www.screamscape.com/html/holiday_world.htm
I can sort of see why as those slides were pretty far off from the rest of the water park. I wonder what will become of this area? Don't you just love wondering and watching lol

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Certainly not a surprise. They quietly removed their wave slide from the complex last off-season so this was kinda expected.
Hopefully that side of the park stays strictly dry-park.

The Hyena Falls slide complex was fine, but it just wasn't worth the walk over there. I agree that spot would be better served by the dry park.

I’m glad it’s finally known that the Hyena Falls complex will be no more. I have a few friends that work in operations at Holiday World, and I was told by them (keep in mind, it could be false, just what they believe) that the half-pipe was removed on request from pro slides due to a recall or something like that. I am not entirely sure if that is factual but it would make sense. Furthermore, I was told that they were removing the complex (old news now) because it didn’t fit in with the vision and they have other plans for the site. Nothing to ground breaking just thought I would share what I had been told! I think that site could be used as part of the section of Thunderbird area with some flat rides, or combined with the old PP station for a larger attraction. I suppose they could also build a new kiddie section, or, what I’ve always wanted, a Christmas Eve section with actual thrill rides and family rides, designed with immersive theming.

I'm going to assume they're not as good as the ones at Knoebels since I've yet to ride a set that are. I am hoping they're better than the ones at Dorney Park, though.

I can't speak for the flyers at Dorney, but I can for sure say the HW flyers are nothing compared to the Knoebels flyers. Flyers are my favorite flat so I ride them at almost every park I go to and I have yet to ride any that get even remotely close to the awesomeness that is Knoebels flyers. That being said, I did think they were better than most I've ridden and we did get some decent snapping on them.

The only flyers I've ridden that can match the ones at Knoebels are the ones at Lagoon.

The ones at Holiday World are a step above the Larson ones, but they don't come close to the Knoebels ones.

I listened to all three on Monday. I like the new format. It's familiar, but not too familiar, but not too not familiar. Just as a podcast should be.

Heya Holiday World... I know you guys are perpetually busy, but how about opening up a satellite park in Monticello, Indiana? It's a short hike, but just think of the possibilities. The industry needs more HW/Koch love. Big time.
