My prediction:
Paul Revere's Midnight Ride will be back and placed in the Halloween section where the high dive show is with a name like Monster or Spider. The high dive show will be moved to Splashin' Safari with a new stadium and the Timberliners and Mammoth rafts will be ready.

Donkeys are my way of life!

If you put Voyage and El Toro up to comparison and make them both just as smooth and re-ridable, IMHO Voyage would win every time. It's got all of the things that make ET good, plus tunnels, three 90-banked turns, and it lasts a lot longer.

Not to mention being located in a park that is actually clean, friendly, and not full of Jersey Shore rejects.

(edited to add) Plus, it would reduce the jarring stress on the Timberliners if it were really smooth....


Regardless of the issues that Voyage has had, I feel that Holiday World and GG have a great relationship and that relationship would be hurt if Holiday World gave Voyage topper track. Moreover, I really don't think that GG would appreciate having Timberliners on a ride that was retracked by a competitor.

...or GG could re-track it themselves? Problem solved.

Then I don't see how there would be a problem with putting the new trains on right after re-tracking.

No, Holiday World retracks it themselves every off-season.

New additions for 2013!

www.holidayworld.com/holiblog
The theme is "cool" for 2013!

As you may have noticed, the summer of 2012 was one of the hottest on record.
We sure noticed.
So, from looking around the parks to see where the longest lines were, where the bottlenecks occured, plus listening to your many comments and suggestions, here's a countdown list of how we're spending $6.5 million for next season:
10. Happy Halloween Weekends expand to six weekends, starting in mid-September
9. New entry plaza for Splashin' Safari plus 20 more cabanas
8. New after-dark light show for summer nights
7. Misters and fans, plus more shade and seating throughout both parks
6. Kitty's Tea Party - a classic tea-cup family ride in Holidog's FunTown
5. Pilgrims Plunge "moving" to Splashin' Safari with a new name: Giraffica
4. See below
3. See below
2. See below
1. Image
RhinoBlaster! Four new in-the-dark water slides, ranging from 300- to 350-feet long and with drops up to 50 feet! One of the slides includes a really cool half-pipe feature near the base of the drop. Have a blast on these fast, dark, double-inner tube slides!
Dan and his mom take you on a tour of the park for a look at all of the above, plus a few more details in this new video.
We've set up a ConstructionCam on the side of Pilgrims Plunge ... er, Giraffica ... so you can watch construction of RhinoBlaster. This northeast portion of the park, by the way, will be the future site of expansion for both parks. Stay tuned as we add incredible new rides to both parks in years to come!


And a YouTube video:


I for one am impressed with everything they are doing, just a year after the major addition of Mammoth. A couple new attractions, a new light show, and many other solid improvements to the park. Can't wait to check them out next year!

Pretty cool to see them keep investing, even after the huge addition last year!

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

So one of the best waterpark in America is adding four more slides and more capacity? Holiday World wins again! I also love to see them re-theme Pilgrims Plunge and add it exclusively to Splashin Safari, I don't know why more "water parks" don't include theme park style water rides (log flumes, rapids, splash battles, chute the chutes) in their lineups, seem like a perfect fit that Holiday World has figured out!

If your reading this, congrats on the announcements Paula, and good luck preparing for what looks to be a fantastic 2013!
