When we purchased our tickets on Saturday, your very friendly staff member wished us a Merry Christmas, and had a huge smile on her face. It was a fantastic first impression.
At the end of the day, we did not want to leave. Your park really spoiled us! At Kings Island and Cedar Point we often wished we were back at Holiday World. I think we all learned this past weekend that there is more to a great park than how many coasters it has.
Your slides and coasters are epic, your prices are fair, and I don't recall ever drinking as much Gatorade at an amusement park as I did on Saturday.
Thank you so much!

Am I the only adult who breathes a sigh of relief every May that I don’t have to take final exams?
I didn’t think so.
But testing, of course, is important.
… especially when it’s a brand new design for a brand new coaster train.
Since the Timberliners are still in testing mode for a few more weeks, we developed a “Plan B” to help with capacity issues.
Here’s park president Will Koch to explain what we’re up to:
Meanwhile, both parks are now open daily.
And we give that report an A+.
Stacie and her family visited on Mother’s Day. The kiddos won prizes.
All five of them.
And as busy as she must be (I’ll say it — it must be bananas around her house some days!), Stacie took the time to email us a sweet note and this photo.
These musicians just met last night for their first rehearsal and already they seem to be "finding their vibe." (That’s a phrase I learned when I sneaked in today to catch a bit of their act on video.)
The good folks from Matt Davenport Productions are here coaching this fab four as they become our Beachcombers.
They’ll perform daily except Wednesdays all season at Splashin’ Safari.
Rules about bidding and paying
- By bidding on an item, you are agreeing to a legally binding contract that, if you win the auction, you will pay for the item won, in full – by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit card – within 24 hours.
- You must be at least 18 years old to bid.
- You can’t bid for an item, or use Holiday World’s Auction Service at all, if you have false contact information on your account.
- You must pay for any item you buy.
- Bidding is a lot of fun, but remember that each bid you make is a binding contract to buy the item if you win. The same is true for Buy It Now purchases. Not paying for an item after you have agreed to buy it has some negative consequences including the logging of your contact information, the removal of your user account and the blocking of further HolidayWorld.com user accounts for your name and email address(es).
- Be careful about bidding on a bunch of similar items if you only want one; if you are the winning bidder of more than one listing, you’re required to purchase all the items, even if they’re the same or similar.
- You can only retract a bid under very specific circumstances. For example, if you meant to bid $10 but bid $100 instead, you can contact us immediately. Even then, you’re required to immediately bid the amount you intended. Never use bid retraction to manipulate the bidding process. It’s unfair, and it has serious consequences.
- Make sure you read the item description before you bid. Any questions? Please email us.
When you have a Darth Vader talking bobble-head bank, you just have to celebrate May the 4th.
(We should add this to Will’s station announcement at The Voyage: "Don’t underestimate the Force.")
… well, time for the camera to ride, anyway! You’ll be able to ride Wildebeest when it opens to the public on May 14.
Thanks to our friends at 14 News in Evansville, we now have this very cool HD “point of view” footage of Wildebeest to share.
Wildebeest is the world’s longest water coaster!
