Hopefully they get a chance to promote The Voyage and their new holiday section so that peeps nation-wide will be able to see what they have in store for next year.

If any park deserves this attention more than HW...I can't think of who it is! They've been working so hard over the past five years alone, (I say that because my first visit was in 2000), I really can't believe how much the park has changed...and it's for the better. 2006 will be another world-class addition with The Voyage, Bahari River, and the Thanksgiving section. Congrats Koch's!

Is it just me, or should Holiday World be nominated in all those areas, (well, except steel coaster, of course.)?
