It is opening-day season for many amusement and theme parks across the country, though understandably they are currently delayed during to the pandemic.  Holiday World's opening day for the 2020 season cannot take place on May 2nd in person, but the park will instead hold a digital opening day for fans of the park.

Starting with a welcome from park President Matt Eckert and fourth-generation owner Leah Koch, the park has packed their entire day with plenty of fun events - all which can be experienced digitally.  “We may not be able to welcome guests through our gates on May 2 as we had originally planned,” says Leah Koch, “but we’re going to celebrate it just the same.”

The park has plenty of details for the event on their website, so be sure to check that out.  They will be releasing videos each hour from 9 am until 9 pm central time.  Videos will include topics such a cooking tutorials for making park food at home, a chat with the park's President, general entertainment and an hour dedicated to healthcare and other essential workers.

The day will be topped off with a fireworks celebration that will be set to holiday music and viewed from a drone, followed by a sweepstakes drawing for free tickets to the park at 9 pm.  Holiday world has packed the whole day with fun so be sure to stay tuned throughout the day!

“Opening day is a special day that we count down toward every year. We can’t wait until we can open our gates to Guests again, but until then we’re going to celebrate and help our Guests bring opening day home,” adds Koch.

Right now the park is tentatively planning on an early June reopening, with more details on that to come as they are decided.

This is a wonderful idea by the park to keep their fans engaged and excited!
