A HoliHint countdown

Growing up, Mom called us "itchy britches" when we kept asking her the same question. "Are we there yet?" was only the beginning … To help calm (or perhaps fuel) the curiosity about 2014, we will – beginning today – post a daily HoliHint here on the HoliBlog. We've already divulged that our "what's new"…

One of those hints

So have you taken the time to go back and review the hints we dropped prior to our Pilgrims Plunge announcement? This one in particular. Korey from The Gravity Group really was here with his family to visit the park. That's all. The "meeting with the maintenance technician" reported by a park visitor on one…

“Come on, throw us a bone!”

Is that the message someone meant to send? You want a clearer, more straight-forward clue about Tuesday's announcement? Then why the heck did you throw a bone at me? My parking spot is on the other side of the Raven Parking Lot. That means a chain-link fence separates my car from someone else's. Normally that's…

A sneak tweet

Okay, let's do it. Back in July of 2005 when we announced The Voyage, I had a ball that morning posting all sorts of quick notes on the HoliBlog. But this year won't be so easy, given how far the site is from my office. So the first to find out "what's new" on Tuesday…

“Oh, so THAT’S how it works!”

There's nothing like a ride simulation to help you finally figure out what it is you're promoting. "Ohhhhhhhh…!" It gave me such a lift to finally "get it." I mean the ride type has been around a long time. There's just a new way of getting from here to there that I finally understand. Matt…

A reporter called earlier today. He was following up on a rumor. He works for the Allentown, Pennsylvania, paper and their local park had just sold one of their coasters to an undisclosed buyer. The reporter saw rumors on the Internet that we were the mystery buyer. I nearly choked, trying to suppress my laughter….

Designer hint

You never know who you'll encounter when out in the park. This very tall dad is visiting with his family, including two very small daughters. In case you don't recognize the dad's legs, let's zoom out to get a look at this stately fellow. Why, it's Korey from The Gravity Group! He's hanging out in…

The downside

Once we start talking about an upcoming announcement, everyone wants to know: So, what is it? Come on, you can tell me. I won't tell. Yeah, right. They want us to spill our guts. Not gonna happen. For most of us, toughing it out is not all that bad. It's just a few weeks. Sort…

Remember Matthew?

He was a little nervous about his first ride on The Voyage and emailed us for advice. He just emailed back with the following report: I was pretty nervous, but I just did not look at the drop hill it was very fun. Thanks for all the great advice!! And then he finished with: P.S….

Tomorrow’s hint, today

Okay, so Rich Davis over at the Evansville Courier & Press (remember his feature about the high Dive team?) is eager to break the story about our announcement. It used to be you could tell a newspaper reporter something one day and it wouldn't show up in the paper until the next day. Those days…
