Dear 2020 Season Passholders, 

Thank you for being such strong supporters of us during one of the most difficult seasons we’ve ever had to face. We’ve been so happy to see you so far this summer, and we can’t wait to let you have the first access to Splashin’ Safari! 

We’ve been planning a Cheetah Chase preview event for you since we announced it back in August 2019. It’s just a little later than we thought it would be.  We hope you’ll join us for a sneak peek of our coolest new addition to our tremendous trio of water coasters. 

These days (in addition to those early days before we opened) are dedicated to you.

This event will be for Platinum Season Passholders only.

Podcast: Season 2, Episode 15 The One Where You Get inLine

Season 2, Episode 15 is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music, YouTube, Facebook!

The podsquad was happy to welcome back special guests VP Matt B. and WBKR’s own Chad Benefield!
They’ve been frequent contributors lately, at what point do we make them honorary Podsquad members?

 

We kick off the episode with VP Matt B’s passion for durable hamburger buns, then dive right into our inLine Reservation system! The system is very user friendly and sticks to three simple guidelines: Register. Reserve. Ride.

After guests receive a wristband from a member of guest relations, they’ll pull up holidayworld.com/inline.

Guests register bands by adding all the wristband numbers to the web page, then they are ready to start reserving rides!

No Phone or don’t want to use your phone? No problem!

Just head to one of our gift shops and they’ll reserve ride times for your party.

Click here for information and updates on the inLine registration system!

Sad fact: We recorded this podcast on what would have been the first day of Holiwood kNights 🙁

Holiwood Nights is our popular annual event that is open exclusively to card-carrying members of 10 amusement park-related clubs and their guests.

Rather than wallowing in a pit of despair, our Lord of the Messengers, Leah hosted a special Digital Holiwood kNights to hold us all over until August 28 & 29th.

Enjoy a Virtual Walkback with Leah and Director of Attractions, Lori:

 

No quest at Holiwood Nights would be complete without a night ride on The Voyage:

 

For the most up to date information, stay tuned to our HoliWood kNights web page and the Facebook event.

Please subscribe and leave a review on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music, YouTube, Facebook, etc. and tell all your friends. Please be sure to send us your feedback and questions with us by calling us at 812-937-4401 then dial 8081, or by emailing us at podcast@holidayworld.com, or by reaching out to us on social media using the hashtag #HOWOPO.
