If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard the news that we’ve “Shrunk” HoliWood Nights 2022.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the growing popularity of the event over the last few years, and we adore our Enthusiast Community—both new and long-time attendees. We know you visit for the incredible movie theme alone. Just kidding. We know you visit for trimless rides on The Voyage at night, but we also know most of you also visit for the community.
Last year, it felt like our attendees needed to choose between the community and the coaster rides, and that’s not in the spirit of HoliWood Nights. And that’s why we felt it was time to make a change.
So, our theme is “Honey, I Shrunk the Event.” And we’re running an experiment by limiting capacity. Our hypothesis is that shrinking the event in this way will improve the experience and build a stronger community. If that doesn’t prove true, we’ll adjust.
If you’re feeling stressed right now, please don’t. This is one year and one weekend. Our goal is to take the HoliWood Nights experience up to the next level, not to make you stressed or keep you away from your favorite event. We set up the form to make sure everyone gets a chance to join, not just the people who happen to be available the day and time tickets go on sale… and we don’t want to miss out on that person who waits til the last minute each year.
If you’re not sure if you’ll be able to attend, go ahead and fill out the form. If you’re selected and you’re still not sure, send us an email or a direct message. We’ll work together to find the best solution for you.
If you typically bring a larger group, we want you to know that we chose to limit the group size to make sure as many people as possible have the chance to attend. If you still hope to bring a larger group, please fill out multiple forms, and make a note for us in the “Why you wish to attend HoliWood Nights” box, and we’ll do our best to keep you together.
If you’re curious to know what the selection process is like, we’re giving weight to long-time attendees of HoliWood Nights, but that doesn’t mean we’re only letting long-time visitors attend. We hope we can see plenty of new enthusiasts/new HoliWood Nights Attendees as well! Anyone with a record of rider misconduct or behavioral misconduct at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari should not expect to receive a code.
In the meantime, don’t overthink it. If we don’t see you at HoliWood Nights, we hope to see you sometime this summer. Your partner club memberships still include discounts on tickets and Season Passes to the park!
