Holiday World - Santa Claus, IN

Postby cedarpointfan1 » 19 May 2014, 20:19

One of my favorite parks will be making their 2015 announcement on July 24th. Holiday World president Matt Eckert has stated that this will be the largest expansion project in the parks seven decade history.

The website counting down the announcement can be found here

It has been rumoured for a while now that Holiday World is ready to build a steel coaster and it looks like 2015 just might be that year.

I just tried going to holidayworld.com/1day and it had no effect. Also tried changing my computers time and that had no effect.

I thought for sure Holiday World wouldn't have been smart enough to cover their bases..
Ride On!!

That's because it's not on a timer. I'm no expert with Java, but using my knowledge, they are actually manually uploaded everything day by day. Using the "power" of Google Chrome ( ;) ), I've managed to activate the Day 2/3/4...etc buttons but nothing pops up....I'll keep digging!

I have a feeling a launched B&M coaster will make it's way to Wonderland in 2016.

As for this coaster, I think I need to get back to Holiday World!

The theming for Thunderbird looks fantastic....with this and Banshee it looks like a trip to Kings Island/Holiday World might be on tap for 2015 :D

I think it's really cool B&M is starting to get into launches. Hopefully this one is a success, and we get something launched next. Also, it's interesting this also has a slow twist soon before the brakes, just like Banshee. I bet lots of execs from Cedar Fair will be venturing to Holiday World to see if it's a good investment. :D

It would appear that in the past several years, anything B&M is a good investment. I really hope we get a launched coaster for 2015/16.

Here is an update on Thunderbird's construction:http://newsplusnotes.blogspot.ca/2014/10/holiday-world-kicks-thunderbird-work.html.

Also, here's a link for construction photos from Holiday World's website: http://www.holidayworld.com/holiblog/2014/10/01/orange-glad-take-lots-photos/

I can't wait to see the final product of the first B&M Launched Wing Coaster. 2015 is coming sooner than you think. ;)

Here is a complete on-ride video of Thunderbird, along with some off-ride footage as well. It looks like an amazing launched Wing Coaster! 8)
