Holiday World & Splashin' Safari
Santa Claus, Indiana
2006 Construction Update
April 22, 2006
With two weeks to go until Holiday World opens its doors for its 60th season there has been a flurry of activity at the park. There aren't any really big things that have been added in the past week mainly because at this point in the game my guess is that they're busy with all of the little details like this fence between the Pepsi Oasis and Gobbler Getaway buildings.
Also another Voyage train has arrived this weekend. I'm not sure if it is the second or third of it's three trains.
Oh in addition to the little details that they must be working on The Voyage is now up and running.
According to the Holiblog they started testing it in the middle of last week so of course I headed out on Saturday morning to see if I could catch it running. I sat out on the side of the road for half an hour watching the beehive like activity all around the Thanksgiving section. While I was headed back to the truck I noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye and was surprised to see The Voyage speeding downhill back towards the station. It didn't go up the lift while I was there so it must have been released from the safety brake after the turnaround. What's telling as to how insane The Voyage is going to be is that starting from standing still which it must have been it was really barreling down the track.
