Santa, Pilgrims Plunge, and a Splash!

Holiday World will officially premier the world's tallest water ride tomorrow to the public when the park opens for the 2009 season. The park was kind enough to send some images of the ride in operation for all of us to check out. Above we see the large entrance sign for the ride, fitting since the ride is so tall!

Here is the park's President Will Koch riding in the first boat with Santa - caught mid-splash!

That's a tall drop! The tower stands an impressive 165 ft. high and the drop is 131 ft. at a 45 degree angle.

We will finish with another great shot of Will and Santa heading down that drop. Their faces are priceless!

Afterwards, Santa had to pour the water out of his boots!

We have videos posted over on the HoliBlog:, including POV.

Thanks! Paula
