The Raven and Legend cars at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

The long cold coaster-less winter is definitely coming to an end as the Raven and Legend cars have emerged from their winter long hibernation and reconditioning.

 The Legend's Old Train at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

I am probably the only person sad to see the old Legend train sitting out in the parking lot ready to be picked up and transported to it's new home on the Raging Wolf Bobs at Geauga Lake in Ohio.  I loved not having seat dividers during the exit to the Legend's laterally insane helix as well as for it's "four corners of death" ending.  I just loved slamming back and forth in the seats with friends.  It just made for more of a memorable and intense ride.

TheNew Wood For The Raven at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

Well as the saying goes "out with the old and in with the new" and here's a bunch of new wood for what I hear might be some work on the Raven's lake turn since the new carriage house and transfer track are nearing completion.

 Getting ready for the 2005 season at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

As usual with Holiday World during the off season there is always something being fixed or replaced and in the past week a lot of the parks old and rusted fences have been replaced with some shiny new fence.

Construction of the new water tower at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

Work is also progressing on the park's very own water tower with the base as well as the start of the top being worked on.  I'm curious if they'll complete the top of the water tower and then just hoist it onto place?  If anything I have fun watching day to day how they're putting it together.

Work is progressing on Bahari down in Splashin' Safari and I should have some up close pictures of it coming real soon.
