Holiday World Staff Auction

Holiday World and Splashin' Safari has come up with a unique way to raise funds for the victims of the recent Nashville, TN, area floods. Fifteen members of park management have offered themselves to be put up for auction, with all proceeds to go to flood victims.

Winners of each individual staff member's auction will automatically receive at least 4 admission tickets, $20 in Holibucks to spend in the park, and two hours of the staff member's time. Each auction has other perks, though, such as:

• An additional four one-day park tickets, provided by the staff member;
• Behind-the-scenes tours of park facilities and photo walkbacks of the roller coasters;
• Parking for the day in the staff member’s personal parking space, by the front gate;
• Musical audition tips, with live feedback from New York and Nashville producers, via Skype;
• Lessons in how to make perfect cotton candy;
• Lunch for four, followed by Very Big Cupcakes with a member of the HoliDazzles staff;
Pre-opening tour of roller coaster maintenance activities; and
• Front-of-the-line access to rides and the new Wildebeest water coaster for up to two hours.

All proceeds from the 15 auctions, which will run through noon on Monday, May 17, will be donated to the American Red Cross for Nashville-area flood relief efforts.

To place a bid on one or more of the Holiday World Staff Auctions, go to the Holiday World HoliShop and click on the “Auctions” button. Each of the 15 participating staff members has his or her own auction.
