I've only been there for HoliWood Nights the past three years and they only had two running. They've got loading down to a science and two work great with the way they do things. Actually, I think I may have asked Will about that one time and he said three trains didn't really help with throughput. The third train would just keep people waiting in the brake run.
Plus, with two trains, they don't need to use the brake at the end of the turn around before the triple-down.
Good to see they're being incredibly patient with those new trains Something tells me SOB and other such coaster accidents keep flashing through their minds. These trains are supposed to be next gen for a woodie, but if anything goes wrong, that track won't be as nice to the trains or the riders as a calmer woodie like Wooden Warrior. That just means anyone who hasn't ridden it with the PTCs should head out there this season I got to ride on both the original PTC train, and the Ravage train last summer! So if I get back there with the TLs, I'll have three separate credits on that beast, according to Jeff Johnson
Holiday World has sent us a press release about their next TV coverage, this time on the Travel Channel's Burt the Conqueror.
The host of the wildly popular Travel Channel reality show, “Bert the Conqueror” will travel to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari next month to “conquer” two of the world’s top-ranked rides.
“We hear that Bert hollers like a little girl on roller coasters,” says park president Dan Koch. “I hope that means he’ll drown out my screams.”
Comedian Bert Kreischer is an “everyman” who travels the country, conquering extreme rides, sports and unusual competitions. During his two-day visit to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari on May 6 and 7, he’ll attempt to “conquer” The Voyage roller coaster and Wildebeest water coaster, each voted the world’s top rides of their kind.
“Plus, mom is planning an extra special challenge for Bert,” says Koch, referring to Pat Koch, the park’s 79-year-old matriarch. “I sure hope he’s ready…”
According to show producers, Holiday World was the "most demanded" venue for Bert to feature in his show's second season.
To select the families who will ride with Bert each day, the park is conducting “open auditions” by video and email through April 20. In under 60 seconds or 175 words, families are asked to explain why they should be chosen to ride along with Bert. Complete rules are explained on the park’s blog at http://HolidayWorld.com/HoliBlog.
“Bert the Conqueror” airs Sunday evenings on The Travel Channel, which is available in more than 94 million U.S. households. The Holiday World episode is expected to air in June.
Holiday World will open its 65th season on May 7 with the debut of Rudolph’s Round-Up, a new children’s ride; Splashin’ Safari will open May 13 with the premiere of Safari Sam’s SplashLand. For more information about the parks, visit http://www.HolidayWorld.com or call 1-877-Go-Family.
