It's not just roosters and hens that roost. Turkeys do, too.
Last fall, we got a lot of questions about where Turkey Whirl would be located in the Thanksgiving section.
At first we didn't know. There were several options being considered.
But eventually the decision was made.
Right smack between The Voyage and the Plymouth Rock Cafe.
Here's the view from the coaster's exit.
Turkey Whirl is scheduled to arrive next week. A few days later, it'll be up and running. And then the call will come out over our two-ways: All units, we need volunteers to ride the new tilt.
Brandon already sent Tori a note reminding her to be sure to come prepared with a bucket of sawdust.

How cool is that?
It's all in the news ... some huge tribute to this super bowl ride we're building.
The newscaster had congested nasal passages or something, he kept mentioning it was so "colt" out. I guess he wanted to be sure folks knew Bakuli wouldn't be open until the weather warms up. And I didn't catch it all, but I think he made a joke about bears wanting to take a once-in-a-lifetime ride.
Must have been talking about one of those polar bear clubs or something. I got a kick out of how often he mentioned to visit our super bowl on a sunny day.
Rachel braved the "colt" to take these photos. I think she climbed to the top of the slide tower for this one. She wanted to take a wide shot to help us get our bearings.
Looks like a real winner has touched down in our water park.

So what do the different departments do in January?
In the merchandise department, they keep warm by moving fast. Vanessa and Erin are folding tens of thousands of shirts as they arrive by the truckload.
Look at those busy hands; nothing but a blur.

Korey, one of the four Gravity Group guys, likes to stay in touch.
Right before the holidays he wrote to tell us that Lord Chadwick had just become Lord Dadwick.
You'll be pleased to note that all four of those super-intelligent, wildly creative, admittedly geeky engineers are tender-hearted family men.
When I asked her where Holidog was from she smiled really big and said, "Holidog World."
It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
The past two nights she took a Holiday World brochure to bed with her. My wife thinks I am warping her ... I just smile a proud-parent smile.

It's so touching when, in the cold of winter, we receive a warm email from a family sharing memories from last summer.
This one's from Stefanie:
We visited Holiday World this past summer. Our daughter was two (she turned three in November).
She is still talking about Holiday World.
We role play Holiday World very often!
We will go to the loveseat and be on the log ride. The chair might be the scrambler. The sofa is the roller coaster.
It makes me so proud and happy she had such a memorable vacation at such a young age!
Thank you for offering this park for children such as my daughter to love as much as we did!
I don't know which of us is more excited to come back....our daughter, my husband or myself! What a great first family vacation!!! What a great memory! THANK YOU!!!!!!
