Along with "Men in Black 2" and Cartier watches, E! Entertainment Television names the new ZOOMbabwe at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari one of the hottest crazes for the summer of 2002.
The new television special "Hollywood Heatwave," described as "a guide to what’s sizzlin' in summer entertainment," will include movies, music and fashion, plus this season’s top new rides at the nation's theme and amusement parks.
ZOOMbabwe, which opens to the public on May 18, is the world’s largest enclosed water slide. Called a "purple monster" by the New York Post, ZOOMbabwe soars ten stories high. Rafts carrying up to five family members careen wildly through the water ride in total darkness.
"ZOOMbabwe is a family thrill ride and we're a family theme park," says Will Koch, president of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari. "But it sure is fun to have Hollywood call us 'hot.'"
Hollywood Heatwave premieres on E! Entertainment Television this Friday, May 17, at 10 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. CT. The E! Entertainment network is available to more than 66 million cable and direct-satellite subscribers in the U.S.
Holiday World & Splashin' Safari are open daily beginning May 18. For more information, visit www.holidayworld.com or call 1-877-Go-Family or 812-937-4401.
