Wonderful update there, Paul! Im looking forward to another wonderful season as well. I wonder if guests will be able to choose going headfirst or feet first on the Jungle Racer.

I've never been to HW, but as far as the 'World's Friendliest Park' title for this news item, but after my recent, first trip to Dollywood, I don't know how a park could be more friendly.

I was surprised to find out HW isn't open in April.

Yo Raptor Pilot,

Having been to Dollywood which is pretty friendly trust me Holiday World will still knock your socks off. Where else do you get free parking, free soft drinks, free sun screen and the matriarch of the park spends her time cleaning up and greeting the guests. That's why HW is voted the friendliest park year after year.

Have Fun!

HW is looking great as usual. I can't wait to make it down there again.

It's strictly head-first, belly down on Jungle Racer.

And actually, we built two new decks--the Smoking Area for the Christmas section is across from Kringle's Kafe and the Smoking Area for the Halloween section overlooks the Scarecrow Scrambler. We already had a smoking area in the 4th of July and in Splashin' Safari.

Right's SNOWING! Can't believe it! But we'll be ready for our May opening.
