Hey guys. I just got back from Holiday World today. I left on Friday in the morning, and when I got to Santa Claus, I went to the Christmas store, and all the other shops in that little strip mall. Then my family went to the Lincoln Museum memorial. It was actually pretty interesting. But that's not the important part about my trip. The best part was Holiday World! Before I get to pictures, I'm going to review what I did, then review the roller coasters.
We left from our hotel (Best Western Lincoln Land Inn) at about 9:00, and got to Holiday World at 9:10. I asked you guys on Thursday if I could trust the weather, and guess what? They were absolutely WRONG. It said storms all day, and there was not one raindrop all day. So, they unlocked the rope thing, and of course everybody starts running towards places. And guess what wasn't one of them? The Voyage. It was basically a walk on. A five minute wait. My dad loved it, and I loved it (review is below). My dad is old (I'm so mean) and he admits it, and said he had a really aching back after it. So, I rode it on my own right after that, and it was then a walk on. My family and I went over to Raging Rapids, since we were already hot. My little sister (age 4) rode it with us, and she had a blast. Since we were already wet, me and my dad rode Pilgrim's Plunge. He had to close his eyes going up the lift. Another great ride. The Thanksgiving section was still empty, so we rode Gobbler Getaway as a family. Now I'm just going to go to my rest of the day ride count since this is already getting long, then I'm going to review some coasters. Overall, we stayed about 8 hours, and as well went to Splashin' Safari, which, we rode two rides (No Wildebeest due to a 2 hour wait). Onto ride counts/reviews.
Pilgrims Plunge, Gobbler Getaway, Liberty Launch, Raging Rapids, Bakuli, Jungle Racers.
Voyage - Holy...moly.....this was amazing. I will admit, I almost chickened out to go on it. I've always been afraid of airtime since I'm so skinny. But, now I love airtime. This ride is intense, it's INSANE. It's nonstop curving and turning. Every single little bump, you go out of your seat. I love the surprise drop in the middle of one of the tunnels. Much better than The Beast, and IMO, better than anything I've ever ridden. 10/10
Legend - This is another intense ride. It's fast paced, and the terrain is unforgettable, going underneath waterslides and flying against a mountainside. Yet, the roughness kind of ruined the enjoyment for me. Therefore, I give it a 6/10.
Raven - Very fun ride! Once again, intense. These Holiday World rides are just so fast-paced, it's crazy. I love the view of Lake Rudolph, and the curves are great. It may only be (90?) feet tall, but it packs a punch. 8/10
Liberty Launch - Loved it. The second bounce lifts you right of your seat, and it's even better than the first. It's too short though. 7/10.
Pilgrim's Plunge - This ride is so unique, with the open-air elevator. The drop gives you some good Gs, believe it or not. We got soaked, and it got us throughout the whole day, our clothes had to dry for a full 24 hours. 8/10
Raging Rapids - Difference between WWC and RR - WWC has several hills that make it go faster, but RR doesn't have that. Which WWC is a little better, but RR was very fun. The theme was very good, especially the old town. 7/10
Gobbler Getaway - I like this better than BBoBH. I love the granny in the queue line, and it's very quiet, which makes it very fun. 8/10
Pictures coming soon.
