Ready for our first contest of the new year?

With the Super Bowl just days away, this contest will give you sports fans something to think about. And you could win two one-day ticket for 2013!

To warm you up, here's a photo of our late owner, the always-laughing Will Koch, happily clutching the 2007 Vince Lombardi Trophy.

"Don't drop it, Will!" (Oh, how we teased that poor man!)

And yes, the trophy came to visit one day. It wasn't tall enough to ride the coasters, though. Bummer.

Our question has nothing to do with the above photo, so clear your mind and take a deep, cleansing breath.

Our question is: what is it about this year's Super Bowl that ties in with Holiday World?

Hint: we need a specific person's name, a specific team and a specific year in the correct answer.

Good luck!

A few rules:

1. Must be 13 or older to enter.

2. Must not be an employee or immediate family member of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari.

3. Yes, you may enter more than once. But five times is the limit, okay? And only one guess per email, please.

4. First person to email us with the correct answer wins. If no one guesses exactly, we'll go with whoever came closest. (So I guess that means we need to set a deadline … okay, Monday at noon. That's 2/4/13 at 12 noon CST.)

How to enter? Must be by email and to this address: contest@holidayworld.com. (If you win, we'll contact you via email, so please be sure to use an address you check frequently.)

    Winning the superbowl is related to the holidays because if you win then its kind of like a present that you recieved for accomplishing something. Like at christmas you recieve gifts from people becasue thats when christ was born. The winning team recieves a trophy and maybe later on they will be in the superbowl again playing someone different.

    The Raven and the Baltimore Ravens are both named after Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem “The Raven”. The Raven Roller Coaster opened in 1995 the same year the Cleveland Browns announced they were moving the franchise to Baltimore.

    The Baltimore Ravens came into existence in 1996 when Art Modell, then owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced his intention to relocate his team from Cleveland to Baltimore. The resulting controversy ended when representatives of Cleveland and the NFL reached a settlement on February 8, 1996. The Raven wooden roller coaster opened in 1995.

    It’s because they made a roller coaster named the Raven after the NFL team the Baltimore Ravens. They made this roller coaster around 1995 when the Cleavand Browns announced they were moving the franchise to Baltimore. This coaster is at the very front of the park. Also because Edgar Allen Poe wrote a poem called, “The Raven.” I love Holiday World so much!:)
