Gotta say....Holiday World kicks a metric shiat-ton of ass.

We go pretty much every year. The place is insanely well kept, clean, and safe. Free soda/water/sports drink, as much as you want, all day, keeps everyone nice and hydrated and safe. Reasonably priced food that, while certainly not great cuisine, is tollerably good and comes in reasonable portions.

Top it all off with a couple of seriously fun roller coasters, and some of the lowest ticket prices in the industry, and it's a hard trip to beat.

/Stay FAAAAAAAAAAR away from the stupid campground on the other side of the lake though.
//Really. Far away.

and from the pic with the article, they don't discriminate if you want a sausage-fest in your little yellow water ride.

you can almost hear the one kid's shriek when you look at the pic.

/my son worked at HW the last 3 summers... seriously awesome place.
/will be there this weekend for the JDRF walk. (raise $100 and you get free entry to the park for the day... Will Koch, former president of HW was a type 1... he passed away the year before last at about 47 years old. very sad but he was why HW was always very involved in helping out the JDRF walk.)

a labrador and a jar of peanut butter?
some guy who thought you had a 'purty mouf'?
passed out while drinking with buddies and woke up wearing lipstick and a wig?

Holiday World is absolutely amazing. One of the best amusement parks in the country hands down.

We just rode the mammoth this weekend. It was outstanding.

My son just broke the 48" line last month so we decided a trip to ride the coasters was in order. Took the tour of all five and literally got the t-shirt. Lots of adults I know won't ride the Voyage- my little 8 year old LOVED it.

Ha, Holiday World is sweet. I worked there in entertainment when I was 16, singing and dancing in the shows. Total blast, and the owners are great people.
