Went to the park Saturday, had a blast. Happy Halloween Weekends is a Family Event, but there is still plenty of Thrills. Thunderbird towers over the Thanksgiving Area. Holiday World does a great job with their Halloween event. The Laser show at the end was great, the Dancers from " Graveyard Smash" was out walking around the audience during the show then did the " Thriller" dance at the end. Took a few pictures, not enough for a full Photo report, so I'll post them on here.

The new attraction this year was, Carnival Chaos, it was pretty fun, had a Mirror Maze at the end.

The " Revolution" became " Resurrection". Several of the rides had different names, for Happy Halloween Weekends.

When you get your 2015 Season Pass processed this year you get this cool Thunderbird Cup. Also bought me a shot glass, I collect shot glasses.

Its a shame the loop isn't centered over top of Voyage, how cool would that be to be at the top looking down at a Voyage train or be on the Voyage and look up and see people hanging upside down above you, there would have to be some kind of netting but man that would be cool.

Yeah I also thought about that, it would certainly be cool.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

While that would be cool, one nice thing about its placement is that the track will be physically closer to the Voyage. If the loop was centered, the track would be much higher over the ride, but instead the track that goes to enter the loop acts as a cool type of headchopper element.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah. After seeing the first pictures of it after the topping off I thought it looked really strangely shaped. But these photos definitely make it look more like a normal Immelmann.

6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg
