‘Twas a blessing to celebrate Saint Patrick’s day with the #PodSquad, who did their best to share a bit o’ blarney for today’s podcast episode.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

We hope you enjoy listening:

We’re excited about progress on the restoration of our classic Calypo ride.

Firecracker’s lights are being installed this week:

Next, Lauren updates us on plans for this year’s HoliWood Nights. If you’ve been meaning to join one of our partner clubs, now is the time. Check out the list of clubs and see the flyer, including this year’s theme: Jurclassic Park on our HoliWood Nights page.

We moved into holidays and discovered National Awkward Moments Day is celebrated more than one day a year by the #PodSquad.

Lauren’s awkward moment was perhaps the most intricate tale – from her days on the Holiday World stage.

Lauren's "country arms"

You’ve been warned.

Lauren even had a pose she had to take while she told the story.

These are her “country arms.” Her awkward moment was during a country show.

I wish I could provide you with a GIF of Lauren while she was telling her story – she was doing a little country dance jig thing throughout.

Way to go with the green top, Lauren. May the roads rise to meet you …

For Eric’s awkward moment, we revisited the story of his Skype interview when he was applying for his current position. If you missed the original pantsless-Eric story, it was told on Episode 006, nearly a year ago. He’ll never live that down. Ever.

And speaking of applying for a job, we have several full-time openings you might want to check out over on our Jobs page. Seasonal positions, too – we’re still hiring for this season.

My awkward moment involved this:

bucket list

’nuff said.

We mentioned this sweepstakes. Be sure to enter daily!

Oh, and the “Park Madness” over at will be interesting to watch!

And then the conversation turned to Pi.

And pie.

And Eric’s promise.

Rentz's strawberry pie

It was delicious!

And finally, we share some great tableaux from The Coaster Crew:

Two in one day!

And that Bad Album Covers Day from the ’60s game? Get a load of these:
