By Paula @ Holiday World

Unless you've just awakening from hibernation, you know one of our fun new attractions is this wild and crazy water-slide complex called Hyena Falls.

Here's the design:

And here's a photo of the nearly-completed slides, including a "wave" slide that starts five stories up:

Does looking at this photo, in anticipation of riding Hyena Falls, tickle you just a little bit? Causing you to giggle, guffaw, chuckle, even howl with laughter?

Then you should enter this contest. Bigtime.

If you win, here's what you get:

Two days of family fun at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari for a family of four, plus …

Two cozy nights in a Rudolph's Christmas Cabin at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort (they're even throwing in a S'mores Kit for a gooey late-night treat).

Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort is located right next to Holiday World – and even provides free shuttle transportation!

    Hyena Falls is almost ready to ride,
    My eight year old daughter is ready to glide.
    As we walk up the five stories to get to the top,
    We laugh, and play, and sing and hop.
    Drawing near is the water filled slide up ahead,
    Laughing so hard that my face turns all red.
    My daughter and I take our spot next in line,
    To show everyone there how to have a good time.
    As we sit on the slide and ready to zoom down,
    I get to laughing so hard that my daughter turns around.
    She says mom if your going to laugh do it right,
    I will laugh like a hyena as you hold on to me tight.
    Around the different colored tubes we go,
    Laughing loud like crazy hyenas we are, I know.
    Up and down and all around,
    As I listen I only hear one sound.
    Laughter so loud that you could only think,
    There are two crazy hyenas and they are laughing in sink.
    As we get to bottom we look at each other,
    My daughter looks up and says “That was great mother.”

    Being a teacher and having a daughter who has epilepsy makes funds very tight. It would be so incredible to win this prize and be able to take her on a vacation. I just can’t find the words to tell you how awesome this would be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, it’s been awhile, my family lived in Dale Indiana, My aunt retired from what we still call Santa Claus Land many years ago in the ole Pillow making area there. Had many xmas cards sent from there just to let the kids see the post mark. What great memories, wishing to win the tickets to pass on these wonderful memories to the grandkids, Such a growth in becoming Holiday World. We will always keep Santa Claus Land close to our hearts. Keep up the good work. Blessings from “An Ole Dale Indiana Survivor”

    I operate a small dog rescue out of my home and work a full-time job. I spend majority of my spare time (after work and weekends) caring for animals, vet trips, adoption appointments and paperwork. It would be nice to get a weekend away to enjoy myself. Holiday World has always been a favorite place of mine to visit.

    This would be a great reward for surviving a very bad winter! Two days of blowing snow this week made me think of a happy place, and of course that is Holiday World! Seven months of severe weather makes me thankful when we make our annual Indiana trip…So nice of you to offer such a great prize! :)
