We put a little twist on that one … Surely Shakespeare imagined Dole Whip when he wrote: “A dish fit for the gods” Happy Birthday, #Shakespeare400! pic.twitter.com/0SBqKRZosw — Holiday…

Launchbreak, er … Lunchbreak doodle

Most people’s first tweets are rather awkward. But then there’s Bethanne from Bloomington, Indiana. Her first tweet included this incredible “doodle.” Lunchbreak ink doodle of my favorite B&M. Got summer at @HolidayWorld on the mind! pic.twitter.com/B3iwpPEjjg — Bethanne Babbs (@beths_art) April 20, 2016 Thunderbird is ready to fly again in just a few days. (Did…

Fooling around with the weather

Who else is under a Freeze Watch tonight? We gave our local weathermen a chance to explain themselves (with today’s date offering the perfect excuse).

And a comb and a brush …

… and a bowl full of mush.   Good morning, moon. pic.twitter.com/8yMcsugqZL — Holiday World (@HolidayWorld) February 24, 2016 Parents of young children will probably catch this reference to the classic please-go-to-sleep-now book, Goodnight Moon.

Presidential proclamation

Today is Presidents Day across the land. And here’s what it looks like on our webcam: Really. Nothing but frozen fog as far as the eye can see (which isn’t far). This prompted Matt to text me a presidential proclamation: “The Groundhog has totally ruined his chances of ever having his Holiday at the Park.”…

Calling all groundhogs

We’ve got more than one weather nerd around here – so we’re nearly whipped into a frenzy about tomorrow, Groundhog Day. Will Thunderbird see his shadow tomorrow?

Fingers (and paws) are crossed that…
