Holiday World @ Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, IN

After living away from Santa Claus for over three years it was nice to see the Holiday World water tower on the horizon.  We were home.

Bond and I arrived at Holiday World a little before the start of the annual HoliWood Nights coaster enthusiast event so I asked the boy what he wanted to do?   Which he replied "Pilgrims Plunge".

Heading down the hill into Thanksgiving we ended up getting the last boat of the day just the two of us.  We headed out from the station, floated around to the tower the headed up.  About half the way up Pilgrims Plunge shut down leaving up sitting there in mid air.  We had a nice view of the park before the Plunge started up again.

Once at the top again we sat there, but only for a moment before plunging down the huge drop only to get soaked at the bottom.

As we left Pilgrims Plunge The Voyage's lift hill was silhouetted against the fading sun.  The event is called HoliWood NIGHTS as the real fun begins after the park closes for the day and after the sun goes down.  The Voyage at night is something that everyone should try as it will change your world.
