Hundreds of you proved we didn't go a-fowl in this week’s "Where Are We? Wednesday" photo.
Our heads are still whirlin’ with all the entries that winged their way into our inbox within 24 short hours.
This week’s photo showed the grinning mouth of one of our fine-feathered friends on the Turkey Whirl in the Thanksgiving section of Holiday World.
Who couldn’t feel a little gibblity coming face to face with one of these guys?
Here are our winners (each received two one-day tickets) who gobbled this week’s opportunity right up:
- Maggie B. of Appleton, Wisconsin
- Kirk Y. of Kansas City, Missouri
- Jessica H. of Williams, Indiana
Did you enjoy playing "Where Are We? Wednesday"? Maybe we should come up with another contest...

...you're being watched?
During a recent walk-through of the Games Warehouse, it sure felt that way.
These Minions' eyes are sort of like the Mona Lisa's ... their eyes follow your every move!
These fine fellows will be available as prizes in the Big Crane Game again this season.

As a child, growing up far, far away from the town of Santa Claus, it just didn't seem right.
There was some other guy claiming "ho-ho-ho" as his own on TV.
I had to go back and find the commercial and double-check:
Indeed. That Green Giant canned vegetable guy stole Santa's iconic line ...er, laugh.
And that's the answer, sort of, to this week's "Where are we? Wednesday" photo contest.
Here's the closely cropped photo:
Most of you thought our photo was taken from the Freedom Train in Mother Goose Land in the 4th of July section. Guesses ranged from some trim on Little Bo Peep’s dress (unbelievable she’s still looking for those sheep after nearly 65 years) to the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe (some kids just never grown up!).
This week’s photo was actually a close-up of some trim on the giant’s jacket in the Jack and the Beanstalk tableau.
Just for fun, here's a photo of the giant from when we were Santa Claus Land (pre-1984),
And look in the background, see the old water tower? It was so cute in those days, with Santa's face painted on it and the vertical center pipe was painted like a candy cane. But it's been out of service for a number of years and was dismantled this week.
Back to our contest...
Congratulations to our three winners, who each receive two one-day tickets:
- Kim M. of Indianapolis, Ind.
- Jennifer L. of Lamar, Ind.
- Shawn B. of Louisville, Ky.
We have one last "Where Are We? Wednesday" challenge coming up in our newsletter next week. Good luck!

Whenever we hold any sort of contest, we are happily bombarded with legions of hopefuls.
Our "Send us Your Audition Video or Email 'Audition' to Ride with Bert the Conqueror" casting call was no exception.
This one made us laugh out loud:
Dry your tears, Julienne -- you and your family are coming to Holiday World!
We're still choosing the other winners -- you'll hear from us either way by the end of the week. Thanks to everyone who submitted an audition video or emails!

If you haven't already caught on to the Bert craze, we highly recommend it.
He's a nut.
Bert the Conqueror describes himself as the grown-up version of that kid who could never say "no" to a dare.
(Photo courtesy Travel Channel.)
My favorite line from last night's episode was, "I've never felt like less of a man."
As you may have heard, Bert is heading our way next month and we're looking for extras to ride with him and cheer him on.
Here's a fun one:
The deadline to audition is just a few days away. Oh, and please don't be intimidated by this funny video; a sincere email and photo will do just as well. Good luck!
