Raven, Legend, a scrambler, octopus, tilt-a-whirl, bumber boats, bumber cars, round-up, whatever Rush Street Flyer at SFStL is, old time cars, log flume, rapids ride, a water park, a kids area with a small coaster, flying eagles (don't know what it's called but PKI has them also), and I know I'm missing some more but that's most of it.
And that is almost exactly what Funtown USA had, until they added their Turbo Drop.

"Didn't someone say a while back that SRM was going to be later this year so that the 2002 addition, located in the waterpark, would be open for the event? Was it Lynch who said this?"
The topic of conversation was next year's SRM, and since it's apparently getting too crowded for some people's likings, she was entertaining ideas of how to thin out the crowd. Some suggested a limit on the crowd, but that doesn't really seem like a fun way to work it out, so they thought of having it over two days instead of just one.
Then, it was mentioned that SRM could be moved to a later date in the year. Why? Raven Maven said they'd like to have the weather a little warmer for next year, because she thought the attendees would want and probably would receive ERT on their new-for-2002 Splashin' Safari attraction.

Paula, THE RavenMaven, has gone on record as saying the new addition IS to the waterpark. She posts to URC all the time, and I'm pretty sure were looking at one of these items: either NGBS(?) waterslide, Royal Flush, Surfing pool, or something along those lines - or, a Giant Shoot-the-Chutes. Sorry to those of you expecting hyper, or some such, this is a FAMILY park, on a family budget. Two days at HW for SRM 2002! I'm working hard to get Jeff Hammersly on stage - he's a woodie-lover's best friend...

I personally hope they never put in a B&M...
So many coasters - so little time.
to to www.rides.com for picts of what would be good
Mamba IS the best hypercoaster. According to who? The people who wanted SD2K, they liked Mamba better than MF!
The contract had been signed and SD2K was under construction before MF was completed, so there is no way that they could have selected Morgan over Intamin on the basis of having ridden MF.
Santa Claus, IN (October 4, 2001): Six Flags announces the acquisition of Holiday World and Splashin' Safari theme parks.
Six Flags, Inc, the largest theme park chain in the world, has purchased the nation's first family theme park, Holiday World and Splashin' Safari. The holiday-themed park features two world-renowned wooden roller coasters in The Raven and The Legend, and features an assortment of other rides that the whole family can enjoy together. According to Six Flags President Gary Storey, for the 2002 season, "Holiday World will receive an unprecedented expansion package that will bring the park up to the quality associated with the powerful Six Flags brand." An amazing $20 million will be invested into this park and will bring the following additions to the newest Six Flags property:
Boomerang: Coast to Coaster- a 125-foot supercoaster that throws riders through six inversions, three forwards and three backwards, all in less than 90 seconds!
Batman: The Ride- a suspended looping roller coaster that will invert guests a record SEVEN times, even though the course only contains five inversions. This thrilling new ride will be located in the new Gotham City themed area.
Santa's BobSleigh- An exciting bobsled run-styled roller coaster featuring dragon-themed cars that will send guests around thrilling banked turns at exhilirating speeds!
Plus, guests to Six Flags Splashin' Safari can expect a new tropical theme that will give guests the illusion of being in a town that has just been hit by a hurricane. Palm trees and weathered buildings will reside amongst the already popular water attractions. A new slide called "Viper" will also make its debut. Guests will ride in giant 4-passenger innertubes and be swept away through dark tunnels with special effects such as fog and mist.
Admission to these two thrilling worlds of adventure is just $39.99 and includes unlimited use of most rides and attractions for one day. Parking is $10 per car. New employees will be trained in the Six Flags Hospitality School to greet guests with a smile when the park re-opens next spring.
Please be advised that the above is all just a joke and was a way to kill time while at work today. I would NEVER wish this upon Holiday World or any other smallpark for that matter!
Anyway, it's going to be a waterpark thing. PERIOD! If you are going to speculate, make sure that your guess takes that into consideration.
My original guess, back when this was first brought up on URC was a 'Royal Flush' type attraction. However, now I am thinking that the new HUSS Delirium would be *perfect*. The whole family could ride together, it's moderately thrilling, and (duh!) you get wet. I'd love to see it.
