Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana

When we used to live down the bock from Holiday World it was always a highlight of the winter to head on over to Holiday World for a nice visit with Public Relations Director Paula Werne and take a nice walk around the park.  It has been a decade since we last lived in Santa Claus but with a certain something...well someone, drawing Bond back to Southern Indiana we worked in a visit back to our old playground for a little visit.

After a nice Chat with Paula we were off to have the first Pepsi Oasis visit of the season.

Even though there were no rides open Bond and I were just totally geeking out being back in one of our favorite places on the planet.

The New For 2017  Firecracker ride at Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana

It is great to see all of our old favorites but it is always a big plus during these visits to see the additions for the new season coming together piece by piece.

The New for 2017 Firecracker ride at Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana

The big addition to Holiday World for 2017 is a classic ride that is being restored and reborn.  The Firecracker is a Calypso type spinning ride that used to be extremely common at fairs and amusement parks.  For those of you who have never been on one it is kind of like a Scrambler but on a tilted platform and way faster.  These are extremely fun and it will be a fun addition to Holiday World.
