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
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.
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 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.
