So who won that HoliAuction we held to help tornado victims in Oklahoma?
After quite the bidding war in our HoliAuction, Keith triumphed, winning a prize pack overflowing with Holiday World memorabilia.
All proceeds (plus some generous donations from our staff, matched by the park) went to support the American Red Cross's tornado relief efforts.
Keith's auction winnings included being treated like royalty for a day at Holiday World.
At the last minute, unfortunately, his family and friends weren't able to join him in the trip from St. Louis, so Keith came solo.
Keith is a member of ACE, the American Coaster Enthusiasts. And enthusiasts have this thing called a Zen ride.
It's when you ride all by yourself …
Enthusiasts don't wake up with a cup of coffee in the morning. They get the day started right with adrenaline!
Keith sure looks awake as he races back to Voyage station on the cross-over! We have no doubt that he rode hands up the entire 1.2 miles.
Keith's auction winnings included a cabana for the day and his choice of lunch menu, which was corn dogs and fried Oreos.
Lunch companions included Coaster Cat Sean, Special Events Manager Ashley, and Communications Manager Nathan.
Thanks to Keith – and everyone who joined in relief efforts this spring.
We've all been there:
The only thing standing between me and Holiday World is me actually getting out of bed.

What the heck, Eli …
My cousin seriously texted me this morning just to rub it in that he was going to Holiday World. What the heck Eli. What the heck.

With the new six-second Vine video app all the rage, we get to see all sorts of details about our Guests. Even as they’re driving to the park:
This is what I get to see for 2 Hours going to Holiday World -_- https://t.co/H0aaUyQ1oP

Some tend to be sweeter when you look back years later …
Betcha 20 bucks the boys will run in here & jump on me screaming "holiday world" to wake me up at 7 in the morning like they did last year.

… they have the most fascinating conversations:
My mom says nothin in life is free…I say nothin except sunscreen and soda from Holiday World.

… were never spoken:
When you see those free sunscreen pumps in Holiday World TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT

This tweet on June 25 made us ho-ho-ho:
@HolidayWorld the water at Kringle’s Kafe is the coldest water I’ve ever had. Makes me wonder if it’s straight from the North Pole.
