Will Holiday World get another holiday in the future?

I could see a similar plan being developed for a park like LC. That park has so many people within daytrip range and is starting to be perceived as a better run and more affordable alternative to SFNE.

Like HW, LC is going to carry out steady but controlled growth. This contrasts with GL where Six Flags tried to do too much at once and botched things up.

DantheCoasterman's avatar Honestly, does HW even need to a new section anytime soon? I LOVE the place as it is. Plus, Before we add any more holidays, when are the merry-go-round and ferris wheel debuting, Paula? ;) *** Edited 3/10/2007 6:12:45 PM UTC by DantheCoasterman***

I think Holiday World's next section should seriously be St. Patrick's Day. They could have a cool new flatride with four spinning cars and call it the four-leaf clover. For the kids, they could have a kiddie coaster a little bit bigger than the Howler and call it the Lil' Leprechaun. Then, maybe Intamin or B&M could finally install HW's first marquee steel coaster and call it the Shamrock complete with green track. I know, dumb ideas but just a brain storm (maybe Paula's reading!)

Can't wait for the '07 season to start!!

I don't think Holiday World NEEDS another holiday but with Will's ambitious expansion plans, I think it's inevitable. And as long as there are holidays that aren't represented in Santa Claus, there will always be speculation about which will be next.

john peck's avatar If Easter does become a Holiday at the park, I hope the park somehow shows the true meaning of it (perhaps 3 crosses on a hill or something tasteful like that) and not just a bunch of chocolate chicks. But Im not worried.

One of my favorite scenes at the park is the Manger in the Christmas section.

Make that 2 votes for talk like a pirate land.

That would be sweet. You could wear eye patches and cut off your legs and glue on wooden ones. Then all go ride the voyage.garrrrrrrrrrrrr

That might be overkill and turn off a lot of people. Not everyone is of that particular faith... If any themed section is next, most likely it will cater to the youngins.'

As for the inevitable "OMGZ WHAT WILL BE THE NEXT SPECTACULAR ROLLER COASTER THEY BUILD!!" I'm guessing a small terrain racer for 2011.

I kind of like the idea of a "Memorial day or Veterans day" type section.

Honoring our past and present troops would be great.


My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

Everything in moderation. Ferris wheel or a Disk’O coaster would be neat... A custom themed carousel that unites every theme section would be beautiful...

I think they should have a section for Groundhog Day.

I still say that Valentines Day or Easter offer the best possibilities. Bring on Cupid's Tunnel of Love and the Bunny Hop Flying Coaster.

I like the idea of the menagerie carousel to unite the themes -- Reindeer for Christmas, Black Cats for Halloween, Turkeys for Thanksgiving and of course Horses in patriotic decor for the 4th of July.

Of course I think the carousel would have to be situated in the center of the park or near the entrance. I think it would really compliment the park.

The center of a park is where EVERY carousel belongs!

I like the idea of a ultra Christian Easter theme. Nothing says family fun like being reminded of crucifixion. Perhaps they could have a cave tour that never seems to end and then miraculously does after three days. Or beverage lines so long you have to turn your own sweat into wine. Free foot bathing while you wait in long lines.
