I've got it! Dinner and a show? (Well, if you put the 2 puns together you might see why I guess this....

I was just there today, and the location in the pic is out at the section of the employee parking lot closest to the highway. So I wouldn't count on it being anything new inside the park.
I hate to say it, but Paula's giving me a little too much credit here as to already having figured it out. I just saw the update and got excited lol. But now that she mentioned that there's a pun somewhere in there (however unintentional it may be) I'm guessing maybe a "Music Express" type flat? I have no idea how they'd tie that into the Thanksgiving theme (over the river and through the woods?) but it sure fits the "to the tune" pun. Alright with that out there, it's obvious I have no idea what-so-ever.
How Cool would a Thanksgiving Dinner Restaurant be? Mmmmm stuffing at an amusement park yum!
^Cool enough to feed us all, this season.

By the road, tune and or food as a hint/pun. Hmm.

Is there enough of a demand to warrent an "outside the park" amphitheater? The inside theater in the park was closed at HWN, looked like it would be all season. Perhaps a Festhaus type situation?

Employee Cafeteria? *** Edited 7/23/2007 7:26:17 AM UTC by xX eNeRtIa Xx***

^ Unlike nearby parks, HW doesn't charge so much for food that their employees need a big break on the cost. My magic 8-ball says "not likely".

Why would the menu at the employee cafeteria been on their website? *** Edited 7/23/2007 12:41:00 PM UTC by matt.***

That's not what they were saying. They were suggesting that it may be an employee cafeteria that they're building.

Highly unlikely though.

eat. sleep. ride! - Coaster apparel and accessories.


How about a Arena, amphitheater for shows and concerts

Signs of construction are popping up all around this sight. I'm sure soon enough we'll see the writing on the wall.

^ I can't wait that long! ;)
Okay, I just started another post about this topic before I saw this post. So now I'll understand if nobody replies to my post about this topic. As for the addition, I know it's unlikely, but I hope Holiday World will add a steel coaster. No, check that, I REALLY hope Holiday World will add a steel coaster. (or any kind of coaster, for that matter) :)

If the new addition is a soup kitchen, I hope they don't allow too many of the park's owners to be in the building at the same time. :)
I saw Will at the park on Saturday and tried to give him some advice: build more roller coasters. He laughed.

Whatever the "addition" will end up being, I am sure it is exactly what the park (or region) needs. They seem to be very in tune with their guests and it sure is showing in how the park continues to grow beyond my wildest dreams. I am betting this season is no different and it yet another record breaking season for Holiday World.

I am betting on some sort of flat ride....maybe a small steel coaster (but I wont hold my breath). I also think the "dinner and a show" idea definitely has enough merit to consider....Though IMO a definite to look into idea would be an indoor waterpark hotel, and thus driving Holiday World to possible year round revenue. If they go that route they will have to plan it smart. If I were the Koch family I would be cooking up that idea right now before Santa's Lodge builds and indoor waterpark (unless they own the lodge). I could even see some sort of nightlife type area possibly with entertainment avenues for a slightly older crowd or even one for the whole family to enjoy after the park closes. The possibilities are endless as long as one can dream them up.

As successful as HW is I don't look at a park with a million visits a year who's target demographic is about 12 years old in a town of 2000 people surrounded by cornfields on all sides and think "nightlife."
If they did add a steelie (seems soon, but in the long run) lets hope it's something along the lines of SFOG Mindbender or SFMM's Revolution. Or a combo of those with the Whizzer.

These old steel coasters (well Rev needs some tlc and 'stuff') still stand head and shoulders above the new 'crop' of both Intamin and B&M rides.
