The theme of The Legend wooden roller coaster is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, as riders race through the woods as if chased in terror by the relentless Headless Horseman. The most dramatic drops on The Legend measure 113 feet, 77 feet, and 64 feet (the 77-foot drop features the world’s first spiral drop). The double helix throws riders from side to side and the disorienting finish sends Legend riders back to Ichabod Crane’s one-room schoolhouse to study up on just how extreme a coaster can be!

Tips For Your Visit
- Work your way up by riding The Raven first, then The Legend ; save The Voyage for last!
- Unless you are a first-time coaster rider, ride the Voyage first for shorter lines.
- Wait times tend to be longer for the front or back seats.
- Wait till the afternoon to ride, as lines are shortest then.
- Don’t forget to leave any loose items you wish to keep – especially cell phones and keys – in the station’s lockers so the Headless Horseman won’t be able to snatch them from you.
- Lockers are provided free of charge per ride cycle for any valuable items. Holiday World locker keys are permitted on the ride as long as they are properly secured.
