Mrs. Koch remembers with great fondness the year we added our first big ride.

It was in 1984, the same year we changed our name from Santa Claus Land to Holiday World.

The big new ride was Frightful Falls.

"Oh, we thought we'd really arrived," she says with a smile.

It's dwarfed now, by the likes of Pilgrims Plunge and ZOOMbabwe, but it's still a well-loved ride.

Thought you'd get a kick out of this old Frightful Falls logo:

Rick, our graphic artist, says the best he can remember (it was 28 years ago, after all) this graphic was hand-painted on the original Frightful Falls billboard.
