Our water park director, Lori, just sent me this:
This is a photo of Caleb, he lives just down the road from here. His teacher at Nancy Hanks Elementary told me this winter that Caleb talks about the Wildebeest constantly and he is on-line watching it whenever he gets a chance.
I told her that I would give him a tour.
His mother, Beth, brought him by today after school and the three of us enjoyed an extensive Wildebeest tour.
Caleb was so excited! He cannot wait to come and ride it.
He will be here on Play Day this year (a special day when Holiday World is open just for children with disabilities); his principal, Mr. Schneiders, has promised to ride The Voyage and Pilgrims Plunge with him.

When I asked Will to meet up with Lisa and me at Wildebeest at 6:45 Thursday morning for his first news-media Skype interview, he said he'd be there.
When we arrived this morning and I asked him to do the interview from one of the Wildebeest boats, he just laughed.
It sure is nice to have a good-natured boss!
Wildebeest, the world's longest water coaster, opens to the public on May 14.

It takes a lot of testing before opening a new water coaster! And this was only the first day...
This is Ray, an engineer from ProSlide, and Joe (off camera, saying "3-2-1" a lot then going back to his laptop to reprogram slightly and try again) testing the pulse feature for the linear induction motors that power Wildebeest's boats "magically" uphill.
