Holiday World Adding Classic Flat Ride + More in 2017

Picking up on one of the trends of the moment, Holiday World released a mannequin video today to give park fans plenty of teasers as to their new for 2017 ride.  Watchful eyes were able to pick up on just what ride will be added next season, check out the video and see what you can catch:

The new attraction will be named Firecracker, and is a classic Calypso flat ride that will be fully refurbished and added to the 4th of July section of the park, across from Liberty Launch.  The ride originally operated at LeSourdsville Lake Park in Ohio before moving to Fun Spot in Indiana.  Holiday World obtained the ride, of which there are only a handful still operating, and will bring it back to life for guests next season.

Next season Holiday World will also make three more attractions wheelchair accessible, add more shade structures on popular attractions such as Kitty's Tea Party and Otorongo, replace the Watubee family raft ride's tower structure, and improve many of the park's food and beverage outlets such as the Alamo. Both The Voyage and The Raven wooden roller coasters will also have off-season trackwork done.

The park promises more news on 2017 changes soon on their HoliSounds podcast.
