It's time for another contest!

All you need to do is tell us what is shown in this Mystery Photo …

This time around, we will have three winners. Each winner will be mailed two one-day tickets. Details below.

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. Only one guess per email address, please. (No multiple entries this time around. Either get it right or make it LOL funny*.)

4. If you've won tickets from one of our contests within the past six months, you're not elegible to win. If it's been more than six months – have at it!

5. Judges' decision is final. It always is.

6. First person to email us with the correct answer wins. If you're not first, but you're correct, we'll throw your name in our HoliHat and will hold a drawing for a second winner. *Plus, the person who makes us laugh the loudest with the most outlandishly wrong guess also wins. (So I guess that means we need to set a deadline … okay, next Thursday at noon. That's 3/14/13 at 12 noon CDT. That's right: CDT. Set your clocks back this weekend. Already.)

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

Good luck!

    I honestly have no idea so I’m going for the most outlandishly wrong answer! :) I’ll email it separately but wanted to put it here as well.
    I cannot think of anything green and with St. Patrick’s Day coming soon this would make a great St. Patrick’s Day ride! The middle has a leprechaun pop up with a shillelagh stick waving and the kids have to bob it back down like that game, “Wack a Mole.”
    Like I said more than likely not but worth a shot! 😀

    It’s a hovering trash can designed to follow guests around catching trash before it even hits the ground. There is no lengths Pat Koch wouldn’t go to to keep Holiday World & Splashin Safari the cleanest parks around!

    I’ve not had a chance to visit here yet,,my son lives in Hodgenville , ky and we would love to come there with him when visiting…but my guess is a trash can lid cover or water fountain cover…please consider me for the free two tiockets..thank you…I love you FB page and it looks like a super place to have great family fun

  4. Rebecca Whittington

    trash can cover or some type water fountain cover in ALABAMA…my son lives near there ..never got t o come but love your Fb page and would love to have a family day to come visit there soon..please consider me for the free tickets ..thank you

  5. Ricky Fleming

    It looks like a light hanging in a bathroom to me. Love Holiday World, will be visiting again in June. Tickets would be awesome!!!!!!

    This is the new electric barf bag at the end of the Legend! It has nice ribber grips around the edge, you lose your lunch in the middle pipe area, then conviniently push the green button which safely and effectively “flushes” the mess away and automatically sanitizes itself. Safe and effective for those who have a weak stomach but still LOVE coasters!!

  7. Angela Hemmings

    I believe it to be the handle on the tea cup ride to make yourself spin faster. You would grab ahold of it and literally pull or push yourself to get the cup to spin faster as the ride is moving. It’s just a guess. Lol

  8. Jamie Jackson

    I think it is one of the Mushroom fountain tops from somewhere in Splash-n-Safari. Just placed in a workshop getting a new paint job and upside down. ;). Otherwise I got nuttin!

  9. Stacey

    The middle part of the new Tea Cup ride. It’s the part where you make yourself spin. Am I correct? Can’t wait to hear!!!

  10. eric stewart

    I don’t know what you would call it but it is surely the spinning wheel mechanism from the kids ride–teacups?

  11. Brandi Lee

    It’s a new “flying saucer” concept engineers at Holiday World are working on currently. This device would be deployed from Holiday World directly to your home to conveniently carry you directly back to the park in a matter of minutes. You and your loved ones will hang securely from this saucer in a basket made of wicker. You will have the option to be dropped directly onto your favorite Holiday World or Splashin Safari ride–no waiting! Woo-hoo!
    Where can I sign up???

  12. Jane

    This is obviously the chip and dip platter for the new Cinco De Mayo fiesta restaurant. Soon there will be live flamenco dancing servers there and you will have a choice of salsa or queso which will be served in the center! Yum!!! Muy Bueno!!!

  13. Stephanie Wagoner

    I think the picture is a potty for the Holiday World characters (I.e. Holidog, Kitty Claws, etc.). I know it’s out there but had to be funny 😀

  14. Amy

    My first thought was a space age toilet seat. It may be a part to one of your rides just not sure which one since I have never been to Holiday World but would love to visit. Very impressed with your food options for children with food allergies.

  15. Micky Miller

    That, of course, is the top of the well from which Miss Pat draws her ENDLESS amounts of energy…and sunscreen!!!

  16. eric howe

    Me and my wife would go to your park every year sometimes 2 or 3 times in a year. But have not been since our son has been old enough to want to go. I think I know what it is but im going to try for funny. It,s the great Gazoo’s space ship.” what do you want dumdum?””We want Holiday World tickets Gazoo!”

  17. Kelly Jansen

    A table with a water sprinkler coming out the center and shooting out from the top

  18. Christine Schmidt

    My best guess is a new tech cup dispenser or new tech trash lid for recycling cups.

  19. Shawn Turnage

    It is the part of the new Kitty Claw’s teacup ride that you turn to go round and round. The part that my kiddies would love to get their claws on to make it go round and round. We always have a TEAriffic good time at Holiday World!! :))

  20. Eric Gosser

    I think that it could be a some type of shower head or something in the bathroom in splashin safari.

  21. lindsay barnes

    its the thing in the middle of the teacup that you turn to make the cup spin :) pick me pick me!!!!

  22. Roberta

    Set your clocks AHEAD one hour this Sunday. “Spring Forward, Fall Back”

  23. Ellen

    I copied the picture, pasted it to Word, then rotated it. After all this, my best guess is that it is a ceiling type light fixture. Keeping my fingers crossed !!!

  24. James Floyd

    I think it is a saucer/base of the car for one of the new teacups for the new teacup ride!

  25. jacqueline duvall

    fireworks launcher! drop the firework capsule into the hole and RUN! HOLIDAY WORLD is awesome. to the person on here that said they had never been… is a must. it is the cleanest, friendliest, most affordable amusement/water park i have ever been to. me an my family have been 2 years in a row and plan to make it a third.

  26. Bob

    It’s a cleverly designed Black Hole Device for trash and people with no sense of humor.

    It looks like the thing you throw a coin in and the coin spins around it until it falls down the little funnel-like tube thing.

  29. Heather

    Do we just randomly guess, or do we look through photos on your site/facebook to find that photo?

  30. Karen Anderson

    Top of a bathroom sink! Love Holiday World been going since I was a child and would love to take my 2 children!

  31. Patricia Hazzard

    I havent seen one of these since I was a kid. Its a “yo”. This is what you have when your yo-yo breaks and your brother steals half of it.

  32. Katie Chapman

    I think it’s the dish that the new tea cups on kittys new tea cup ride will sit on.

  33. Wendy

    The wheel (which is in the center of the ride) in the spin tea cup ride. Riders use it to spin the cups they are in faster.

  34. Brooke Gabbard

    I do believe that is a donut pillow designed especially for Holidog and his hemmrhoids!

  35. Erin whittington

    some seat or part from the new hyena falls ride being constructed..or some thrash can cover..I .live in Hodgenville ky….WOULD LOVE to win free tickets and come here with my you Fb page..thanks
