Congrats to our winners: Cassie C. from Greenwood, Indiana, and Breonna L. from Keavy, Kentucky. They knew that we were the first park in the world to blog – and that April 7 was the eighth anniversary of our first HoliBlog post. They each win two one-day tickets.


Here's a quickie contest that runs through this Sunday night at midnight.

What's the deal with this Sunday?  All we need to know is what the anniversary is, how many years it's been, and why it's significant.

A few rules:

1. Must be 13 or older to enter.

    April7,2013 is the anniversary of the first park to have a blog. Holiday world was the first park in the world to have a blog. The first blog was on april 7,2005. So this will be 7 years that holiday world has had a blog.
