Holiday World 2010

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 4:29 PM

Is Moosh hinting that HW will get a Gerstlaur spinner ala Spinning Dragons that will go around the carosel?

Oh, and that it will be firecracker related?

I've never been to Holiday World, but I've always thought that area on the spinners was a waste of space (and track for that matter :-P).

Assuming I'm actually hinting at something, is that what I'm hinting at?

Andy, you have to get to Holiday World whether they get a new coaster or not. Book your flight now for Fall Affair or budget for next years Holiwood Nights.

What's the swahili word for "spin"?

I thought since you obviously know they only name SS rides after swahili terms that you were hinting it was a SS ride.
So ApolloAndy posted a pretty clever idea.

I think that would be a good location for a new ride. There is some space behind the carousel on back around Holidog's Funtown down to the road.

^Amazoom, Bamboo Chute, Congo River, Jungle Racers, Jungle Jets and The Wave are Swahili?

Wouldn't firecrackers indicate the 4th of July section of the park?

Don't be silly. You can light fireworks for any occasion! :)

hmmm... looking at the 2009 Holiday World Map (PDF Version) it appearsthere would be room for a new attraction between Kima Bay and theOasis. So the orange flags danthecoasterman is talking about could be the location. Being that it is in the middle of SS I conclude it must be a water attraction. That is IF thats what the orange flags are for. Who knows they can be updating their infrastructure or adding deck space there...

Did I say all rides in SS are named with Swahili? NO, I said they only name rides in SS with Swahili. You won't find rides in HW named with Swahili. Hoff the only rides with Swahili are Bahari, Zinga, Bakuli, Kima Bay, and eventually K O M B O R A ! I just don't see how a spinning coaster gets a pull. I know I am not thinking "oh yes I need to get to HW so I can get on that new spinning coaster," there has to be something more, because that just seems cheap. I just don't see HW investing more money than they did on Legend on a junior steel coaster. I think somebody fed Moosh some bologna because how he let the secret slip last year.

In SAT wording:

While all Swahili rides are SS rides, no HW rides are Swahili rides, but not all SS rides are Swahili rides.

Using the above information please categorize the 2010 ride.

When in doubt, "C"'s the way out. ;)

There shall be a Swahili ride, but there may also be a HW ride!

That Swahili ride shall be called...K O M B O R A !

That HW ride shall be a fictitious ride named... Spinned Moosh!

Did anyone see HW's twitter messages this morning? They pretty much confirm a ProSlide HydroMagnetic Rocket.

I was thinking last night that HW might come up with a waterpark slide/ride that incorporates some of the cool AV effects seen on Schlitterbahn's Dragon's Revenge. Not having seen the "Tweets", it seems likely they could really put some interesting technology to work on a Splashin' Safari expansion.

Also, I thought I recalled Will saying something along the lines that spinning coasters were more expensive than they were worth? I disagree (strongly), but Will certainly has more say than I do... ;)

You may be on to something, Bill. Paula recently said, "A week till our 2010 new-ride announcement. Trying to get Will to explain the technology a little more in depth than 'it's magic.'"

Having ridden both the revamped Pirates at Disney and Dragon's Revenge, "it's magic" is probably the best I could do to explain it too - so don't feel bad, Paula... ;)

"Dead men tell NO tales"... :)

Gee...anybody think that new 2010 ride will be called.... K O M B O R A ?

Thursday, August 6, 2009 4:19 PM

Enough already!

I'll second that- unless you've got something else to add, do us all a favor and can it.
