^^very true. I hope they don't require a bathing suit for it. Even though it was absolutely drenching, on the day I visited it was a nice way to cool off when in a bathing suit AND normal clothes.

^which is why it was great to have the option.

The "new entry plaza" for Splashin' Safari makes me think it's for the area east of the Voyage, where Plunge/Giraffica and Rhino Blast will be. Just my guess...I'm thinking it'll still connect to the existing Thanksgiving area. Even if its theme is changed to match Splashin' Safari, I don't see why you wouldn't still be able to get to it.

Congrats to Holiday World on their continued growth!

When I was there for Holiwood nights I got the impression from the operating hours on Plunge that it might one day join the water park. The name change is slightly shocking. Makes total sense really.

I think they should paint it to look like a giraffe. That would be awesome.

But for a "quiet" year all of these additions sound fantastic! A bunch of little improvements can go a long way.

^ I would assume that some sort of overhaul of the themeing is in order for the ride, so maybe they'll add some spitting Giraffe's on the pre-lift section, and an evil animatronic giraffe on the lift platform itself that terrorizes riders on the way up the tower!

Is it bad that when I hear the name "Giraffica" that I instantly think of "Gothika" and I get creepy images of Robert Downey Jr. and Halle Barry in my head?

Let's be honest, there wasn't THAT much theming that needs to be redone! ;)

^I honestly don't remember any theming. Guess it won't be too hard to change it!

And I'm liking the idea of an evil giraffe. Especially if it breathes fire.

^^Okay, yeah yeah there wasn't that much but there is probably a ride sign or something that needs to be replaced and some brown that needs to be painted yellow and green!

Give me a break, I'm just trying to find a way to justify animatronic fire breathing giraffe's!

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

There was theming on Pilgrims Plunge?

And those smaller slides are supposed to be like regular inner tube slides, but they're those faster versions of them with steeper helixes and speed gaining drops. Should be much better than Otorongo. Those who have been on the ones in parks like Aquatica or SFGAm's water park might know what I mean.

Also, that quarter pipe slide looks great, but not as fulfilling as slides like Zinga. Still, I can't wait until it comes out!
