HW&SS 2012: The Hints & Puns Begin

Wednesday, August 3, 2011 3:36 PM

It does look good, and anything that eats crowds in the waterpark will make lines that much shorter on the dry rides.

I'm guessing that the original "Woozy" hint was a play on woolly, though even if we knew that these were all mammoth hints it's not as if we would've guessed it to be a water coaster.

Well, the dry side should be getting a new and improoved Voyage experience next season. They can't really trumpet that at this point, but I'm sure they will when the new trains are installed, tested, and ready for use.

A longer season is intriguing, and the possible addition of a haloween event, you know those things are all the rage. It's a family park, so I wouldn't expect blood, guts, and gore mazes like other parks will have, but something more like the Sunday event at Kings Island with trick-or-treating, the pumpkin patch, and that kind of thing.

Dry side also received a new children's ride this season that looks very cool, and is adding a breath of life to Reindeer Ranch.

And as has been mentioned, we know a major coaster project is on the horizon. It's also no surprise the waterpark seems to be their core business these days, and Wildebeast is insanely popular. Particularly upon hearing it gets the longest lines in the park. They had to do something about that.

Come on guys, every "real" enthusiast knows that HW is in a water park war with Schlitterbahn. They are just trying to steal the Golden Ticket which we all know means "everything" in the business. ;)

Not at all ... I felt sick after watching the animation repeatedly.

I'm just that pathetic. :)

While the new water coaster looks intriguing, I too was hoping for something on the dry side. Not being a "water" person, I haven't been to SS for several years since the kids were small. Thought about going over just for Wildabeest last year, but that is an insane walk for one ride.

Someone mentioned earlier that the dry side has become the step child of the wet side and I agree. Holiday World has always been a must on our summer to do list, but skipping it completely this summer since there has been nothing new to do for 3 or 4 years now. Hoping that next year they remember they started Thanksgiving and never finished it. However, I see the day that the water park starts to "eat" the dry side and we have a water park with 3 great woodies in the middle of it.


Life is an amusment park -and I can't get off of the damn spinning teacups!

^Maybe at some point they will add some sort of night event; a laser or light show. Then the night at the park will be a bigger destination for folks.

Isn't HW pretty far off the beaten path to get folks from the bigger towns to go for a laser/light show?

I know of something to do at night... Run Voyage backwards... now that'd be a trip!

I love the decision. Holiday world does water park, and wooden coasters. It's not time for a wooden coaster yet.

Rather than trying to fill all categories a little bit, pick a few categories, and fill them right to the top. In this case overflow the waterpark category.

No jumbo flats, and no steel coasters... at least not yet.
