I think that's in their short list of things. This one would be great - and it satisfies 2 requirements they have for a steel looping coaster. Lap bars and a 42" height requirement:

Imagine if they got Gerstlauer to build a close-to-duplicate of Mind Bender :) I wouldn't have to go to SFOG for a long time. It's perfect = little intensity here and there, ride-able, *real* air time, etc...

PLUS!!! It would give Holiday World a "family coaster" - something the park really needs!

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

^ "Hey, I can dig that!" =)

Of course, if Holiday World did decide to put in another ride or another area related to a theme (I'm still rooting for Easter), then where would they put it? I wonder if Holiday world has any more spare land around that is begging for something to be built upon, or (say it so, Joe!)will they have to take something out so they can put something else in?

Here's another thought: methinks that Holiday World, after putting in two awesome water coasters that'll get you so wet it'll short out your water resistant watch and a fun swing ride, may wait until 2014 before they even think of putting in another attraction. The park is just AWESOME!!! just as it is.

But all this is just speculation on my part. I will have to wait and see, wait and see . . .

:pillow: "I can make it easier for you to wait, just lie on me and go to sleep. When you wake up, a few hours has passed and you're closer to whatever announcement Holiday World might make in the future. If that doesn't work, then go back to sleep until it does.

My hopes for the next two years of Holiday World:

2013- New Timberliner trains for Voyage
2014- Holidog's Fun Town rides moved to Christmas Area, new steel coaster in that area
Top 10: 1. The Voyage 2. Outlaw Run 3. Millennium Force 4. SkyRush 5. Maverick
6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg

...you do realize how large of a portion of "Holiday World" that Holidog's Funtown is, don't you?

Yeah, I looked again at a park map, and that's only big enough space for a wild mouse or a half-pipe coaster. :lmao:
Anyway, the station could be located near Pilgrims Plunge, head towards the Holidog's Fun Town area, have a cool element (loop, corkscrew, double-barrel roll) right next to the road, then head back and have a long section in the empty area behind the Voyage.

Possible Names
-aMAIZEing Adventure
-Mashed Potatoes Mambo
-The Indian Ceremony
-Cornball Craziness

LOL Holiday World you really chose a bad holiday to expand on

Better Ride Names
-Virginian Velocity
-Plymouth Rock Rumble
-The Hunting
Top 10: 1. The Voyage 2. Outlaw Run 3. Millennium Force 4. SkyRush 5. Maverick
6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg

Because removing the entire Kiddie Area and many of the family friendly attractions in HW for a steel coaster makes complete sense.

Haha no. Actually, it doesn't.
