Holy crap, it's the entrance! ;)

You should mention to your designer to make something fixed width in the "sign," as different window widths can screw up the alignment of the entire header.

Other than that, looks great!

Found a bad link on the Hotels and Camping page. THe Clubs Sites and Pubs link doesn't work...it is coded to go to the sub-link "coaster" but the HTML calls that section "coasterS"

Found a similar coding error on the For Your Information Page...First Aid is coded to go ot "firstaid" but in the HTML the section is named "ssdressfirstaid".

On the Jobs page, in the section that mentions auditions there is a strange character between "the" and "entertainment department".

On the Company Picnic page, there is a strange character in the "Consignment Tickets" section after the comma following "drinks".

Also on the Company picnics page on the left "menu" you have a selection for "more information"...there is not a "more information" section on that page it just takes to you the Fun Club - which already has a link in the menu.

The Zoombabwe page is goofed up...the graphics are all out of whack...

In the restaurants and food outlets page, there are a few errors..Kringle's Cafe, Goblin Burgers, Mrs Klaus' Kitchen have an _ before the lb. where it should actually have the unit... (1/4, 1/2 ?)

In the site map section, the map links all take you to the maps with a GIF extention which do not exist...the maps from the map page all are JPG extentions...

On the family rides page, in the "Did You Know" sidebar, there needs to be a carriage return (/p) between the break-line and "The"

And...Most importantly...for us enthusiasts, at least, the SRM page doesn't exist anymore! ;)


It looks great...Also, along the same lines of what Jeff mentioned about window width, it appears that not all of the pages are coded to the same width...

If one tries to click on the Hallowswings and Liberty Launch picture on http://www.holidayworld.com/family_rides.html page it attempts to go to http://www.holidayworld.com/new_2003.html
which does not appear to be working yet.

However the link probably should have been directed to http://www.holidayworld.com/other_new.html instead. This is how it is linked from the home page.

BTW, I absolutely love the new site design and actually find it easier to navigate then the previous design. And I thought that was easy. Great job!

On the food page with the menus ( http://www.holidayworld.com/food.html ), every place where there is a weight reference in lbs. (i.e. hamburgers and fudge) there is no number, just an underscore ( _ ).

Perhaps this is just a placeholder until the site designer could get the correct weights, but I wanted to mention it just in case it wasn't.

I have a comment about the 2003 park map. The Libery Launch Logo is somewhat placed on top of the bumper car building, and it looks like the bumper cars are getting blown up.... I dunno, it just caught my attention.

Thanks for all your help in weeding out what needs fixing! Really--thanks a million!

I'd noticed the lack of "1/4" on the foods page, too, and had already notified the designer. We'll get that and everything else fixed soon. (He's in California and probably hasn't quite started his day yet.)

Regarding info about the coasters...there are fact sheets in the News Room. Is that what you're looking for?

Thanks, Paula

Of course the question should be asked about Will's statement on the homepage...calling Zinga a "half-pipe water slide"...if it's a circle (or funnel in this case) isn't it a whole pipe? ;) ;) ;)

George, George, George...

You really are taking a close look, aren't you? :) I knew the enthusiasts would provide the perfect final proofing. Free Unlimited Proof-reading--I like it!

I think we've gotten just about everything fixed.

Describing Zinga has been quite a challenge. We finally came up with the half-pipe description (my genius: "Isn't it sorta like those skate board thing-y treacherous-looking curved ...you know...things that I'd never let my kids on?"). Luckily, Will knew what I was talking about.

In all honesty, Will's quote was quoted when Zinga *was* more of a half-pipe slide. When it became a funnel, we figured it was still half-pipe-action, so what the heck. :)


Thanks again, Paula

I am having a good chuckle right now envisioning you saying that while talking with your hands, Paula.. ;)

As far as checking everything...I am quite detail oriented and can catch stuff like this pretty quickly... ;) Don't forget...I was the one who caught your calendar problem last year (you had two May 31st's)

BTW...I checked the pages I listed above and all have been fixed as of now - with the exception of Zoombabwe...and the SRM page...

That's weird...I checked the SRM page earlier and it was fine. Wah!

...and we couldn't find anything wrong with the ZOOMbabwe page...would you mind emailing me with the details?

Thanks again! Paula (fun@holidayworld.com)

I didn't have time to look the entire site over, but I like what I see. I also enjoy the "did you know" tidbits, vintage footage, and how the maps are separated. That Halloween section alone is worth the 5 hr. drive.....

My brother and I will stop by for a pre-SRM visit on May 10th! See ya then. :)
