Negative-G covered Holiday World & Splashin' Safari's 2006 announcement as well as recent construction shots. The park is adding a new Thanksgiving themed section as well as The Voyage roller coaster.

Thanks for all the great photos.

No problem. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Thanks Paul. Having some photos really helped in putting the whole thing into perspective. It's going to be awesome to say the very least! I just don't know of another park I've been to that puts so much effort into everything they do...and yet, HW seems to be the best kept secret in the midwest.

Thanks, not much comes but wow! Its going to be one heck of a coaster!

HW is no secret in the midwest. Just look at their rising attendance numbers.

Does anyone know what their potential draw numbers are for where they advertise? Do they advertise all the way up in Indy? Over in Cincy? I wouldn't be surprised if they hit 1,000,000 this summer. If not this season, then next season no problem.

Well, I _do_ know they advertise as far west as Paducah, KY (if not further)...My sister in law lives there and we saw billboards for HW there in early June

I live on the NW side of Indy and there are two billboards each within a mile from where I live. I see them all over the city.

They advertise on Ft. Wayne T.V a lot also. They also have HW coupons in some of the fast food places in the surrounding towns. We are more than 5 hours away.
SFKK was running ads when Greezed lighting opened but have not ran a single commercial this year that I have saw. PKI has had only a few.

You've seen HW advertise up here in Fort Wayne? What channels at what time? Any of the Amish 5 or just cable?

I also live in Indy, and I've seen several HW commercials on TV, as well as the billboards Waterboy mentioned. I see HW ads a lot more than PKI, SFKK, or CP. With the new additions, they should have no trouble passing the 1,000,000 mark next year!

Damn... just watched the video, that's gonna be one hell of a coaster. I'm definitely gonna try to get down their next season, perhaps a pre-college road trip. Living in NY can be such a bother when i want to go to Holiday World :(
