Looking forward to it. It's good I an watch the 10 PM show because the next one is on at 1 and it wouldn't be a good idea to stay up til 2 with a 4 AM departure:)

You know Holiday World has made the 'big time' when it's lumped in with parks like BGT, SFMM, and Universal. :)

Looks like I'll have to hit up my folks to tape it, since I'm heading out for SRM this evening...

I saw the preview segments for the show and was extremely pleased to see their going to highlight a non-corporate park! I kinda wish they'd stop highlighting BGT, IOA, and SFMM. It's getting really redundant (sp?). Anyway, there will definately be a highlight in the clips can't wait to tune in, I hope I get home from tryouts in time!

I'm hoping our segment isn't awkward...as they shot the interviews with Will and Mrs. Koch during the winter months. When the production assistant called to set it up, I couldn't resist saying, "Um...you're from California, aren't you?" (No offense, Moosh.)

Anyway, they hired a great crew from Louisville and instructed them to shoot some park footage, even though we of course were not open. Even after I told the PA it was *snowing* out, he still insisted on the park footage. "We're paying them good money--I want them to work for it!"

Never a dull moment in this job! Paula

Oh, come on, tell me they're at least going to use some B-roll footage?

Paula, next time something like that happens just wake Legend from its off-season slumber and call us up. We'll be there in two shakes of a raven's tail feather, snow or not.

Looks like I can catch it at 10:00pm tonight. I should be able to make it for my 7:00am flight out of Newark, Liberty, or whatever the airport is called now.

I just saw the segment with Revolution at SFMM. Are my eyes decieving me, or were those awful shoulder restraints gone?

It did look like it, but it may have been old footage, SquishyMon.

I just realized I was at SFMM the day they were filming.

And trust me, the God awful OTSR's were still there.

What's nice about this is they are putting a new episode on every Thursday. Next Thursday has a tidbit on Cedar Point. They must like showing footage the night before a park event.

Good thing I make my own "events" at parks. I won't miss a single show :)
