Holiday World Rumors

Wednesday, April 28, 2004 4:41 PM
If someone has already mentioned this I'm sorry, but recently I've heard a lot of rumors about Holiday World's 2005 Additions. I've heard they contacted GCI about a new wooden coaster or they are in the planning stages of adding a big steel coaster for the 4th of July section. I know HW usually spends around $4 Million a year on new additions, but with their popularity growing...does anyone think they'll add a huge coaster..B&M,Intamin, Chance Morgan, etc.?

I really don't think there's any room to add anything big in the 4th of July section. it's kind of just in there.

The space where Holiday world has some room to breathe is back behind The rapids ride and the Waterpark.

I hope they do get a new woodie. They can't go wrong there. If they do go with steel, I would prefer a Intamin mini-hyper. The beemers are overdone, and quite frankly, overrated.

Wow. I hadn't heard *any* of those rumors!

Thanks for bringing me up to speed! :)

All silliness aside, if we were planning a new coaster for next year the cat would already be out of the bag and footers in place.

That Avalanches CD is amazing! I need to dig that one up and play it again. I wish they'd release another.

Wow, Contacted GCI when they have contracts with TGG. It's possible I guess.

Chuck, who thinks Will and the gang will do whatever is best for their park and not whats best for any one particular group.

A likely story, Paula.
You're just trying to throw us off the trail.

Thanks, Chuck. Thought of you today when I took two rides on The Legend. (Yeah, it's a tough job...)

I think you'll be pleased. :)

i can see how the rumors would start:

1995 - raven

2000 - legend

2005 - ?

people are just so funny...

i'll be there saturday...i'll make sure to look out for the footers for the new b&m dive machine that will go right in the middle of the "diveworks!" pool in between the raven and legend.
