2006 Construction at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana

There's work going on all over the place at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in preparation for the park's 60th season.  You can see The Voyage off in the distance and these pipes are to enclose the stream in the background where it passes the new for 2006 Bahari River.

Work on The Voyage has been proceeding nicely.

I'm not sure if they are going to extend this hill any further just yet because it seems that they have stopped right where it is to cross where the track will go from the station to the lift.  I could see them completing that stretch of track first before crossing over it.

If you look at the bents to the left in this view it looks like they are working on the bottom of The Voyage's first drop.

This is a view from the walkway that goes up to Bahari looking east to The Wave.  Just beyond the bulldozer to the right is where those pipes are destined.

There's also been quite a bit of clearing going on in the area that will be Bahari River next year.  This clearing is right next to Bahari Snacks and will take people into the Bahari River area.

here may or may not be any big updates for a while as next weekend I will not be at the park due to other obligations and beyond that Holiday World is closed to the public due to corporate buy outs.  Look for a huge construction update in early October when the park opens back up to the general public.  If I see anything exciting from outside of the park before then don't worry I'll put it up.
