Looks like yet another winner for Holiday World. I really need to get out there sometime.

I believe each uphill section is a block.

Looks like winner to me, and I'm not a big waterpark fan.

Sounds like a winner for the park.

btw 36 ft / sec = 24.5 mph.
I had to convert that to something I could understand better.

I'm sure the person who was convinced it was going to be called Kombora must feel pretty stupid.

What is capacity like for this type of ride? Do they only allow for a single raft after the lift or is there blocking involved? And what happens if a raft stalls out?

Looks really cool!

What I read on another site said 720 pph, which is good for a water ride like this.

Wow.

It took over a half hour for someone to make a new post about this.

Please don't flame on me when I say that although the ride looks fun, I am really disapointed that it's not a dry park ride.

But I am sure that this is a good fit for the waterpark.

You are correct - both Noah's Ark and Schlitterbahn run their watercoasters on that same sort of blocking scheme...

Holiday World already has the "Chuck Norris" of all roller coasters. I think they can wait quite a while before adding another.

Reugulus, you get excited about these park, but NOBODY EVER TALKS ABOUT GOING TO CANOBIE!!!!!

Gee, am I the only one here who has a clue aboutthat place or what????

Okay, now that's off my chest,

It looks cool, but are parts of the LIM's incorperated into the rafts?

Just added one? It opened in 2007. I finally rode it last year. I was unimpressed. It seemed very short and boring. I hope HW will deliver a better product.

Sounds like people can't wait to ride Holiday World's "gnu" attraction! ;)

I was never "convinced" that is what they would call it. I just thought Kombora was the best name considering they named two other Proslide originals with Swahili terms. The logo (W for horns) is impressive and Wildebeest is a great name. I give much props to John on that. I was attempting to convince HW that Kombora is what they should call it, but they were not buying it. Either way you look at it, the ride is still a KOMBORA!

Beaver it not, Owl be back later for some more puns.

There's something fishy about this anyway.

Yeah...I gotta agree with Jeff: you're trying too hard. And, you still have a typo in your lion pun.
