I'll be at HW for both days/nights and following up at Beech Bend on Sunday with a stop at Camden Park on the drive back to New York. Sorry I don't have any TPR gear to wear, but that's OK since I won't have a camera either

Well, I did have to pass it up for monetary reasons.

Plus, I heard theres like...a bajillion people registered which isnt exactly my idea of fun. I doubt they will have the three train op down pat by then (they barely were running 2 efficiently) so its safe to say itll be extremely packed.


Should be wild at night though!

I think it is so bizarre how people think that a lot of attendees is a bad thing. It is a SOCIAL EVENT! The more, the merrier.

Myself, I am looking forward to seeing a lot of great people that I might get to see about once or twice a year if I am lucky.

Just two more hours at work and then I'm outta here! We're doing Holiday World all day Friday and Saturday, then the Beech Bend event Sunday, and a quick stop at Camden Park sometime Monday.

Holiday World Announces 2007 Additions

Postby Jonathan » Wed Sep 06, 2006 9:24 am

http://www.holidayworld.com/new2007.html

We're stirring up lots of fun in 2007!
...starting with Bakuli, our new family water slide in Splashin' Safari. Bakuli (pronounced bah-COOL-ee) is the Swahili word for "bowl" and that is exactly where this takes you—swirling round and round in a huge, colorful bowl! Start seven stories up and climb into a four-person cloverleaf raft. You'll be launched into a very dark, very steep tunnel that's full of surprises. You know how The Voyage has three 90-degree curves? So does Bakuli!

Over the river and through the woods, in Holiday World, there's a new ride being cooked up for our Thanksgiving section. Your entire family will want to take a spin on the Turkey Whirl! This new themed tilt-a-whirl is truly fun gone a-fowl. And the only leftovers will be your laughter!
Image

In 2007, the Plymouth Rock Café also opens in the Thanksgiving section. Make sure your family gathers together to savor the mouth-watering flavors of Thanksgiving dinner in this new cafeteria-style restaurant.

The slide looks really cool, I think.

Looks very cool. On the website it says it have 90 degree turns, like on the Voyage. Is that possible?

The Turkey Whirl? I can handle the themed Tilt a Whirl, but their bad puns have gotta go.

Good to the last drop

That slide's gonna be huge and I love the colors! So now this waterpark will have both a custom funnel slide and a custom bowl slide, very cool!
