Boy-oh-boy, have we heard that question a lot this fall!
In 2016, we celebrate our 70th birthday. Pretty amazing to think we’ve been around that long – ever since Louis J. Koch (Lauren and Leah’s great-grandpa) decided it was time for Santa to have his own park here in the town that was named for him.
During the “off season,” we perform a tremendous amount of maintenance on our rides. Walk through the park this time of year and the rides are quite skeletal in appearance.
For example, HallowSwings was stripped down to its bare bones last month.
Even the smiling skulls will get a new coat of paint.
It should come as no surprise that our wooden roller coasters receive loads of TLC during the colder months.
The trains receive the full spa treatment.
And the track? We’ll, let’s just say that all three wooden coasters – Raven, Legend and Voyage – will be extra exciting to ride in the spring.
Because our Coaster Cats have an “in” with Santa. (The man in red loves riding coasters.) So we caught their plans on camera for you.
Let’s start off with a video greeting from Matt, Lauren and Leah … and be sure to keep watching, as our Cats work on their wish list for 2016.
We’ll be back in January with details. What do you think we’re up to? (Please post your comments below.)
