Chris,
I was wondering the same thing. It would only be about $2 to $3 each. ;)

I hope everyone is packing their swimming gear....it is supposed to be 92 degrees in Santa Claus tomorrow. (link)

I would expect the waterpark to be pretty crowded since this is the last day it is open. If I were a local season pass holder I would definitely be there.

I will be there with my mom! woo for genetically inherited amusement park addictions!

So does that mean we only need another 6?

Don't forget Cousin Oliver. Though he's a jinx, so I don't know. :)

You win geek points to the power of pi squared for knowing that. I just hope Mike doesn't lose his blueprints for the proposed park renovations like he almost did at Kings Island.

Okay ... little Simon is absolutely adorable. He kept throwing his arms up in the air -- guess he's been practicing. :)

In that case he should be a pro by the time he is tall enough to ride the woodies. :)

Had an awesome time. The extra 30 minutes was perfect. I got 2 Raven, 4 Legend and 7 Voyage during ERT. The blue train seemed to be running a bit faster than the Red train. The Timberliners looked sweet. I can't wait to try them out next year.

Thank you Paula (and all the Koch's) for a wonderful day. :)

And here we thought the red train was outperforming the blue train. Funny how that works, isn't it. We didn't hit Legend during ERT, rode it during the day, thought it was sluggish this time. Spent the first half of ERT all on Raven, particularly after we were able to camp out in seat 2 for most of the ERT.

On Voyage we ended the night with a 3 or 4 ride streak without getting off in seat 10.

Wonderful event as always, Thanks Jeff, Paula, the Koch's, the Mikes's. And your ride operator Lori!

It's funny, I thought the red train felt faster on the Voyage, but I asked one of the maintenance guys and he told me that the blue train has typically been about a second faster. Go figure. 8-)

Since HoliWood Nights, I noticed that the crunching and rattling going up the second and third hills on the Voyage has been completely eliminated, but now the pits of the first, second and fifth drops are bouncing just a little. That's significant because it demonstrates Holiday World's commitment to their coasters. How bad was it? It was so bad that I took four rides in a row without getting out of my rear-axle seat. :)

I think the Gröna Lund guys were impressed, too. Not long now before they have a Gravity Group coaster of their very own!

Great ERT session.. I got 1 Raven, 5 Legend, and 11 Voyage rides. By the end my body was hating me, but it was well worth it. Great day at HW.


I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

Lots of fun times! Thanks to Holiday World for having us! And thanks to Jeff and the GOCC people for putting this on!

We spent most of the day at the water park with my boys. My 4 year old LOVED Wildebeest! My 2 year old loved the Bahari wavepool I got to take a couple of first timers on Raven, Legend, and Voyage at night for ERT. It was definitely good times!

Holiday World is always home to the best events... I spent more time in the water park than usual, and took advantage of how empty it was early on. Wildebeest is still wonderful.

Throughout the day I accumulated 5 on Legend, 10 on Raven, and 43 on Voyage.

Needless to say, stairs were not kind to me today... but completely worth it!

Thanks Jeff and Pat (and all the Holdiay World Staff) for a wonderful day. It was a perfect day. This was the first time I ever went to the waterpark area, and I am sooooo glad I did. Wildebeest was amazing! The other slides were fantastic. I like the little trail over to Pilgram Plunge from the waterpark. Nice touch. Can't wait until next year! Coaster counts: 7 Raven, 4 Legend, 8 Voyage (not Voyager).
