Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana

On May 4th, 2000 the most physically demanding coaster that I have ever been on premiered at my home park...Holiday World.

Here's the ribbon cutting ceremony before the first train was sent out.  With Will Koch in the front seat Mr. and Mrs. Koch cut the ribbon and the Legend was born.

The Legend's first drop is a wicked "s" curve with a tunnel at the bottom.  Try to keep a hold of your head and oh yea...look out for the great head chopper.

That tunnel looks so small as you crest the drop.   Right before it is a great dead branch that reaches out to you especially if you are riding on the left side.

Here's a great crossover on the way to the spiral drop.  On media day it rained so the Legend was even more out of control.  I tried to get an on ride photo of the spiral drop but it's just too crazy to let me get a picture.  Get on down to Holiday World and experience this super ride.
