Elvis to wed enthusiasts on The Legend

Posted Thursday, May 23, 2002 9:48 AM | Contributed by Raven Maven

[Ed. note: The following is a press release from the park.]

A Sheboygan, Wisconsin, couple will make their marital vows from eleven stories in the air while seated on board The Legend roller coaster at Holiday World. The wedding, on May 31, will be performed by an Elvis impersonator.

“Scott Heck asked us about this back in January,” says Holiday World & Splashin' Safari president Will Koch. “He’s a member of the American Coaster Enthusiasts and asked if he and his fiancée could be married on The Legend. Who are we to get in the way of romance?”

The wedding of Scott Heck and Mary Reinert will take place on board The Legend wooden roller coaster. The couple’s wedding party will be seated in the “wedding train” which will be stopped at the top of the lift hill, 113-feet above ground. Waiting for them at the top will be Elvis impersonator Bruce Borders, who will perform the wedding ceremony and then a musical number or two. Songs under consideration are “All Shook Up” and “I Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

After taking their legendary first coaster ride as a married couple, Scott and Mary will take a ride on ZOOMbabwe, the world’s largest enclosed water slide.

“Scott and Mary tell us they want to ‘take the plunge’ on ZOOMbabwe in their formal wear,” says Koch. “Guess we can call it the ‘Tunnel of Love’ for the day.”

The wedding will begin at 9:30 am CT. Regular park guests will be invited to witness the nuptials. The event will also be carried on the park’s webcam at www.holidayworld.com.

And here I thought I was crazy for wanting to renew my wedding vows on my 25th wedding anniversary by an Elvis impersonator in Vegas.

This is so cool!

I want to get married on a coaster, but I don't think it's going to happen. I do thinkn I can talk my lady into getting married at WDW, though. They do really nice cerimonies there!

Don't forget the Peace Train and Soul Train! Now there's a great reception idea :) Speaking of trains, I hope she removes hers before the ride! Unfortunately I won't be there early enough to witness the occasion, and I think it would be great if they showed a clip to everyone later on. Can the King really hold onto the Bible (not to mention his shades) during that ride? LOL
