A kids wave pool AND kids bowl slide, are you kidding me? This is amazing, that kiddie bowl slide is going to be the coolest thing in the world to my kids, they'll be all over that thing.

That's a fantastic addition. I loved the kids wave pool and junior water slides when I was younger at Lake Compounce. But this has far more variety for the kids with all the different slides.

The press release also made a good deal that Voyage will get some track work done. While that surely sounds like a good thing from all the recent reviews I've read, I'm not sure how much can be done with what's left of 3.5 million after the kiddie slides/wave pool and hedge maze.

Very thoughtful addition. I would have loved all of this as a kid. I love how these smaller family-owned parks go all-out with good ideas like this where bigger corporate parks would have added a couple of kids' slides and been done with it.

I hope this takes out the pilgrim's plunge eyesore.

They've listed track improvements on The Voyage for the last few years when they've announced "what's new".

It sounds like it's going to be located to the left of Kima Bay, so the Pilgrims Plunge site will still be there for at least another year.

I've never been to Holiday World (it's up on my priority list), but these additions seem great. They're rounding out an already-fantastic looking water park.

I wouldn't be surprised if it has something to do with the Thanksgiving section due to the timing of the announcement



Ok, I was wrong lol

I was even more wrong, I thought they were going to get a dry park addition. Lol More specifically, I was thinking that they were going to get something from Lakemont Park, maybe the old monster ride and say that they are reintroducing Midnight Ride.
But I think this is a PRECIOUS addition. It looks so adorable. I don't think I've ever seen a kiddie sized wave pool. It definitely seems like it will be fun for the little ones. Holiday World is definitely one of the most family friendly amusement parks in the world.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

I don't know why, but I find it especially nifty that they're also getting electric car charging stations. I don't own an electric car, but I just find that alone pretty neat! Also excited to learn about the "big new maze" coming next year. Love the Halloween event, so I'm looking forward to the new maze, and hope it's as good as Carnival Chaos or Holidog's 3D Adventure.

Of course, Voyage track improvements are also always welcomed and appreciated! :)

These are all great additions for the park.

I will be most interested to hear how the track refurbishing works for Voyage.
