No mention of Timberliners? I guess they're playing it safe and probably don't want to announce that they are getting them until they are sure they'll be getting them.


Offerings at Holiday World not enough to fill a day? That's the first I've heard someone characterize Holiday World as a half-day park. I found myself filled with things to do for the entirety of the day on my first visit this year. I think Voyage, Raven, the Legend + food alone is enough to make for a fun filled, but Holiday World had so much else to offer beyond coasters.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Really? I feel like it's a pretty common point of view.

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Regarding the Timberliners, I'm pretty sure there is no news to report because the park said they won't even begin testing until the season is over, correct? If that's the case nothing more is known since last year...

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Keep in mind they only have 3 major roller coasters, and there is a severe lack of large flats. What they do have is top-notch, though

The question is answered about Giraffica (copied from the Holiblog at holidayworld.com):

"Will Giraffica still be accessible from the Thanksgiving section? We have always looked forward to riding Pilgrim's Plunge on our "dry" day at the park.

Yes, it will still be accessible from the Thanksgiving section.

So that's good news and should make everyone happy.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I don't see what all the complaining is about. I feel theme parks and water parks go very closely together and I like water parks /water slides almost as much as theme parks / roller coasters. If were in Indiana or in that region of the country I would definitely put a day aside for visiting Holiday World. Plus it gets really hot and humid in that part of the country (or at least I hear) and I'm sure park guests are glad to have an abundance of water attractions to cool off in. I wish more theme parks in California had an included water park, and a decent included water park, not a joke water park section like CGA with one good water slide. My only complaint about water parks is their operating seasons are so short (usually late May to early Sept). There are hot/sunny weekends in late April/early May and late Sept/early Oct in certain parts of the country (cough..SoCal/CenCal..cough) were if water parks were open people would go.

I actually see very little complaining after this announcement. Stop trying to create drama on our forum. Thank you.

I'd chip in on a Kickstarter to put a giant fire-breathing giraffe head on top of PP!

You have to admit THAT would make it onto the news.


Gonna repost this idea. Come on, THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

This is my point exactly. To me, Wildebeest is one of my favorite coasters around. It just happens to be on water. And find a time where you can ride solo in the front seat (HWN) and you'll experience the best moments of airtime in your life. Mammoth is also great, and the faster speeds and spinning is fun, but its nothing compared to Wildebeest's amazing air.
