One of the great mysteries of life

We truly enjoy reading the tweets that mention us. We get to peek in at the preparations being made for an upcoming visit, detailing the nightly ritual of measuring a child who's nearly tall enough to ride our roller coasters. Sometimes the tweet is simply a plaintive wail: "Somebody take me to Holiday World!" This…

Tag, you’re it!

Over the past several months, we've gone back to add tags to our eight years of HoliBlog posts. (That's more than a thousand posts!) The resulting "tag cloud" is pretty handy (it's floating over to the right of this post), as you can click on your favorite topics and read all the related blog posts,…

We see lots of tweets from families planning to visit and later sharing photos of their children happily hugging Holidog or madly licking their dripping Udderly Blue ice cream cone.

I may tweet, but I’m not a twit

Are you familiar with Twitter? You may have noticed, we added a feed to the right of the latest HoliBlog post … It’s a micro-blog. With a maximum length of 140 characters (not words) per post … er, tweet. So you have to choose your sassy comments carefully. Once we’re open daily (Saturday), it’s our…
