Al Dente, meet Mr. Tiger…

Naw, his name’s not Al, it’s Michael. (Couldn’t resist…) Sometimes a family’s best souvenir is the delicious evidence of silliness carried home in the camera. Errin’s family visited recently from Newark, Ohio. She says her family camped here for a week and each of their three children got to bring a friend along. This is…

One of Santa’s Elves?

Look what appeared on someone's office door over the Christmas break: So, just how well do you know us? Post a comment below and let us know whose door you think this is … and who anonymously posted the sign. Hint #1: My only involvement was taking the photos while waiting for person to return…

Let’s just hope …

…this isn't the company in charge of theming our new ride. Poor Mike. I asked him how construction is going. Here's his silent reply:

It’s not always all about us

There's a really cool Twitter application called "TweetBeep." Basically, it's a real-time search function. I signed up and asked it to send me an email to let me know any time someone tweets about Holiday World. (Twitter, as you may recall, is a "microblogging" program. You're limited to a maximum of 140 characters for each…

Favorite quote from the week

Park people really are a lot of fun. We've laughed all week. Learned a lot, too, but had a lot of fun. I hope my week of tweets from Orlando provided a vicarious chuckle or two. Every time I had my cell phone out, someone would ask, "Are you twittering again?" I usually was. I…

Influence peddler

Eric likes to set a good example whenever he can. He recycles, uses CFL lightbulbs, and is even sure to use all-natural fertilizer on his lawn ("Watch where you step!" he called when I brought James over to trick-or-treat last week). So it came as no surprise that Eric's parking spot sported an alternate vehicle…

This website will make you laugh

When I explain to others that with Twitter, the microblog phenom, you're limited to 140 characters per post, they cannot fathom such minimalistic communiques. So it's perfect that a fellow tweeter would post this in response to my tweet that (as of yesterday) Christmas is just two months away: Thanks for the update… I usually…

Calling Wes Williams …

Here's the weird phone call of the day. Bethany just called and said she was going to transfer a business call from a woman who wanted to speak with Wes Williams. Bethany explained we don't have anyone here by that name, so the lady agreed to instead talk to the Director of Public Relations. It…

“Come on, throw us a bone!”

Is that the message someone meant to send? You want a clearer, more straight-forward clue about Tuesday's announcement? Then why the heck did you throw a bone at me? My parking spot is on the other side of the Raven Parking Lot. That means a chain-link fence separates my car from someone else's. Normally that's…

Rachel’s ruler

This is one of those "out of the mouths of babes" stories we love to hear. Our friend Chris emailed us about an upcoming visit. His story about Rachel was so cute I asked if it was okay to post it on the HoliBlog. He said yes: We've been quietly planning a trip to Holiday…

A phone call from Pennsylvania

A reporter called earlier today. He was following up on a rumor. He works for the Allentown, Pennsylvania, paper and their local park had just sold one of their coasters to an undisclosed buyer. The reporter saw rumors on the Internet that we were the mystery buyer. I nearly choked, trying to suppress my laughter….

What the … ?

How could this be? A giantess perched on top of the lift hill at The Legend! And her mouth is wide open — is she going to devour the next train of riders? Oh.
