Part of the reason the waterpark isn’t open yet. They have to figure out how they’re going to operate the attractions.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That's cool to hear from a place that already had some of the better merchandise options for an amusement park.

Made to Thrill teamed up with Holiday World, which is really awesome because they don't make your typical merch. https://shop.madetothrill.com/

I could maybe see predetermined rafts keep the water dummies in them to allow the necessary weight for each raft and to help space people out. I don't know if straps to keep them in would get in the way of people's feet or not but you could probably place one in the back of Wildebeest and be ok? Curious if they will go that route or not.

Can confirm the Made To Thrill stuff is all around the park and looks great.

I know more about donkeys than women!

For those that don't know the reservation site is available to see outside the park:
https://hwreservation.com/#

I've been using it periodically to check wait times. Today is the first time they've moved some of the rides into a "reservation not required category". (Meaning you can have a reservation for say Voyage and be able to ride another ride while waiting). My guess is they can easily move attractions around, and good to see HW adapting to concerns that people have had.

I know you can only get tickets online but do Coaster groups still get a discount that has been offered by HW before?

Oh, wow, their offerings have gotten even better since the last time I looked. They've even designed a shirt for my home park! Was not expecting to see that.

Bought tickets for our somewhat local road trip out of STL on 7/27. Technically as a SFSTL employee my son gets two free tickets, which we have been used before, but there was no way to do that on the website and in the current climate it seems churlish to make an issue out of it. I will just support the park and pay for the day and be happy they are happen.

HW has officially canceled their Halloween event and will be closing at the end of September.
