Many have marveled about the look of our zombies in Graveyard Smash.
Did you know our un-dead do their own hair and makeup?
They are really quite resourceful.
Here's a quick look at Lauren, our zombie witch, as she prepares for another thriller day:

Happy Halloween Weekends may be over for another year, but we still have some stories to tell and photos to share.
Our Graveyard Smash zombies took a walk on Sunday to enjoy a bit of fresh air.
They even posed in some of our Halloween photo cut-outs.
Wait a minute! Lauren doesn't seem to like Drac Brian's witchy-poo imitation ...
There, that's better.
And now we add the rest of the lovelies to our souvenir photo.
Before heading back for the next show, Zombie Lauren (the un-living doll) had a thirst for ... a soft drink.
As she entered the Pepsi Oasis, the air curtain set Lauren's eyelashes a-fluttering - she nearly took flight!
Whether you're batting your eyelashes or batting for the World Series, we wish you a safe and fun Halloween!

Did you meet Gourdon the Pumpkin this fall? He's carved out quite a niche for himself during Happy Halloween Weekends.
Who better than Gourdon to host our 2014 promotional video for Happy Halloween Weekends?
Gourdon even has his own 3D glasses for Holidog's 3D Halloween Adventure:
And who better than Gourdon the Pumpkin to make this Vine video, with our Halloween greetings:
Happy Halloween to one and all from everyone here at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari!

Ever wondered how many families have taken photos with our Santa statue over the years?
It's a bunch, we know that much. This cute photo from March of 1976 (those little munchkins are Karena G. and Shannon P.) was posted on Instagram and is from our Santa Claus Land days.

Somebody's career planning, thanks to her visit to Holiday World at the tender age of two. Her mom tells the story:
I wanted to share with you how much my daughter loves the shows at Holiday World. Each time we came to Holiday World throughout the season, our 2 year old daughter has demanded to go see the shows, even wanting to sit & wait for the shows, never complaining, or asking when they will be on, simply waiting patiently for the show. The Halloween show has particularly gained her love, as you can see, she is very fond of "the girls."
We have found a clip of 2012 Graveyard Smash on YouTube, which she has been able to approximate, and sing some of the words. Since our visit 3 weeks ago, she has talked about "the girls" non stop!
Our visit, even spurred a change of Halloween costume choice from Nemo (which she has only seen once, last December) to a 'silly' purple kitty cat. After our visit last week, she "called" them & informed us they would be coming over to eat, and invited them to her aunt's house to go swimming with her. Any time she sees the computer out, she asks to watch "the girls" who have also become "her" girls and her friends.
Thank you for the great show and for stimulating the creativity and imagination of our daughter. She is definitely a performer, which has exploded over the past few weeks. I'll remind her of all of this in about 15 years, when she's auditioning for the shows at Holiday World. For now, our Holiday World fun, continues, daily in our home.
Thank you for a great summer. Lori O., Downers Grove, Illinois
