Imagine climbing the lift hill (near size of the Raven) side by side with another and racing through the woods ala` a toned down version of Lightning Racer/Gwazi! That would be thrilling and scary at the same time, having another train pop up out of nowhere through the trees, lol.
Coasterphan said: OH YEAH! A presidents day section of the park, that will go over great. I can only imagine how the Bill Clinton darkride would be. You go through the ride with a rubber mallet type of device, and try to hit on as many female interns as you go along. At the end they display your score of how many female interns you nailed.
Don't forget a section where you take a shot at Elian Gonzalez, when you hit him the bullet ricochets and hits Al Gore in the back!
I was surprised to see the manger on my visit last year and was one of the aspects of the park I really liked, especially in a world so politically correct nowadays. With that in mind I think Holiday World would do great justice with an Easter theme. Easter Bunny with a subtle religious tone like how they mixed Santa with Christ's birth in their Christmas area would be awesome.
Religious attractions at HW would make sense in the Christmas section and also in an Easter section if this is in the park's future. HW is in the Bible Belt or very close to it so such things should get a good reception there.
By the way, when I referred to a Flying Coaster, I did mean the flat ride. This ride really hops! *** Edited 3/11/2007 3:20:46 PM UTC by Arthur Bahl***
It depends upon the type of park and where it is located. Parks like SDC and DW would be very likely to gain positive benefits from more religion in the parks. On the other hand, this would be inappropriate for parks like SFGAdv, CP, or SFMM.
RollerCoastin!!!! said: 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.
That is hilarious, and would surely inspire some new additions to the Christmas holiday, too. I guarantee they could get Mel Gibson to show up.
It is very hard for me to envision an "Easter" themed area that is tasteful, faithful, fun, and marketable. While I'm sure they might incorporate Easter somehow, I just don't see a full blown Easter themed area (of course I was skeptical of Thanksgiving, and HW hit a home run with it anyway)
I would love to see the Christmas holiday further developed. The Christmas area is a great entrance to the park, but it seems to me like just that: an entrance.
What if there was another Christmas area? One with a unique twist to both justify itself and not make the current Christmas area obsolete. The centerpiece could be a junior woodie. "Christmas in July"? "Christmas around the World"? "Rudolph's Ranch"? (re-located and expanded)
