Holiday World Invests $8 Million In New Ride & Other Projects
Holiday World and Splashin' Safari will add a new ride as part of eight-million dollars in improvements to the park next year.
It's a swinging ship ride called the "Mayflower."
It's scheduled to be ready for the 2014 season in the park's Thanksgiving themed section.
Park president Matt Eckert says it will carry up to 60 riders at a time, swinging in an arc 54-feet-high over a pool of water.
Additional projects for 2014 include Friday Night Fireworks from June 13th through August 1st; Extended Splashin' Safari hours; a new restaurant and shop in Splashin' Safari; more cabanas; additional benches and shade structures; and parking lot improvements.
Eckert says ticket prices for Holiday World & Splashin' Safari will not increase in 2014.
