Purrrfect coasters need Coaster Cats

When it comes to our Coaster Cats, we’re feline thankful (that’s a joke, son). In just about all kinds of weather, they’re out in the elements, taking care of our coasters. One of this year’s off-season projects is retracking Voyage’s brake run. Out with the old and in with the new! “Dude, your eight layers…

It’s about TIME!

How in the world did I accomplish anything before Google Alerts were invented? Yesterday morning, my day came to a screeching halt when I received a Google Alert with a link to this article in TIME magazine. Yes, TIME. TIME's top ten coaster list only includes a few wooden coasters. And the highest ranked among…

Up on a roof top

Three or four times each season, some poor soul has to climb up on a roof top. (No, not Santa. It's the wrong time of year for him to be up there.) You know which roof top I'm talking about if you've ever ridden Voyage. And what is harvested? A bucket of hair ties! There's…

Rockets red glare

No other line from any other patriotic tune comes to mind more readily than "rockets red glare" when you look at this photo: It had been a long, wonderful day … and I'm so glad I dragged my bones all the way down to Hyena Falls to take a crack at photographing our annual fireworks…

Zenerosity

So who won that HoliAuction we held to help tornado victims in Oklahoma? Meet Keith. After quite the bidding war in our HoliAuction, Keith triumphed, winning a prize pack overflowing with Holiday World memorabilia. All proceeds (plus some generous donations from our staff, matched by the park) went to support the American Red Cross's tornado…

The Belgians are here!

The phrase "the Belgians are coming!" doesn't have quite the same historical ring as our recent post about the Brits. But still. Cool. I knew they were visiting soon, but wasn't sure exactly when – they'd been waffling on the dates. Ba-da-bum. They made themselves known yesterday via Twitter: Hier staat een gelukkig, ernstig door…
