Pilgrims Plunge starts with a classic shoot-the-chutes ride and adds a modern "lift." That's right — an open-air elevator to take you higher than any other water ride in the world!
Also, a wonderful new, free service is coming to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in 2009! Families and group members wearing HoliWatches will be able to locate each other, leave messages, and retrieve a variety of information about the parks throughout their visit. (And yes, they're water-proof.)
Visit the official Holiday World site for more details.
Pilgrims Plunge looks unique though. The elevator lift use on a shoot-the-chute type ride is really bizarre.
HolidayWorld has a tough guy ride to join Voyage in the big leagues.
I doubt that there will be either of those. With OTSR's you shouldn't need someone sitting up there.
To tell the truth, I'm getting kind of tired of these one-trick ponies. Wouldn't we rather a really good log chute, especially since so few *decent* chutes operate in the US?
Also interesting how enthusiasts so often say that the days of a ride needing to be the '-est' are over or that an '-est' ride doesn't guarantee a good ride, and HW keeps delivering '-est' rides to praise.
I dunno. The elevators are neat, I'm assuming there'll be no weirdness witht he lift lining up at the top like Max RMP at HRP. I've ridden much smaller chutes and the deceleration at the bottom can be rough - a little worried about hitting the pool at the bottom from 135 feet up.
But yeah, the HoliWatch idea is straight out of the LG playbook. Assuming it even does kinda like it says, I likes it.
The HoliWatches are a great idea! ...And the service is FREE! This adds to the great value that the park already offers!
