Congratulations to Nathan F. from Atlanta, Georgia, who both provided the correct answer and provided the link to the page on our website with our Downton Abbey-esque photo faux pas.

You see, a few weeks ago, Downton Abbey released some publicity photos and one in particular quickly hit the “bloopers” circuit, because a modern prop was included:

Downton Abbey blooper

Do you see the water bottle on the mantel? Oops.

And so, while updating the information on our website’s Happy Halloween Weekends page, this photo was oddly familiar:

Graveyard Smash at Happy Halloween Weekends

Oh, my. Time to crop that photo – but we had to poke a little fun at ourselves first.

Thanks to all who entered – and congratulations to Nathan, who receives two one-day tickets for this season.

Well, maybe it’s not all that simply, but here goes: “How is Holiday World like Downton Abbey?”

The answer is somewhere here on our website. Simply post your answer as a comment to this HoliBlog post and you could win a pair of tickets.

A few rules:

  • You must be at least 18 years old to enter.
  • Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari employees (and the immediate family members of employees) are not eligible to enter.
  • Have you won tickets from us in the past six months? Please wait half a year before entering again – let’s give others a chance to win, too.
  • There is one very specific correct answer to this question (hint: it’s not in a news release or in any other textual content). You’re welcome to enter more than once.
  • Did you know you can subscribe to our HoliBlog so that you receive all of our posts (including contests) by email? If you’re using a desktop computer or tablet, look for the “Subscribe to Blog” sidebar at the top-right corner of this page. On a smartphone? Just scroll down a tiny bit more to find it.

How to enter? Click on “Leave a comment,” below, and post the correct (and specific) answer plus the page of our website that provided you with the answer. The first person to correctly answer wins a pair of one-day tickets to use in 2014. (Please don’t include any personal information, we’ll email you if you win.)

By the way, our blog comments are moderated – but as long as your guess is HoliFriendly, it will appear soon.

… and, we’ll add a hint each day until someone wins.

Good luck to all!

    Michelle Dockery who stars in the TV show “Downtown Abbey” just posted a video of herself taking the ice bucket challenge. I asked myself, where do people get drenched everyday by hundreds of gallons of cool water? Splash and Safari! Monsoon Lagoon would be a perfect spot for a massive Ice Bucket Challenge.

    On the homepage. The picture of the Mayflower has a British flag and Downtown Abbey is a British series

    Found it on rides and slides. The two are alike because they are themed from different times in history.

    Downtown abbey and holiday world are similar because the publicity pictures of both include a modern prop at the background(plastic bottle) which just does not fit into the theme & Is not at all required to be there
