Yep, totally agree with you. We has some first time Raven riders with us and I had told them how great of a ride it was dropping into the darkness at night, and then I rode it and I was all "oh, nevermind...but wait until you get on those water coasters!" :P

I hope it gets some love too. It would be like turning up to Knoebels one day and find that Phoenix is unrideable.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

What are those cables set up in front of the International Street fountain at KI?

^They were setting up for some stunt show stuff.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Thanks for the trip report. I really enjoyed it!

I'm curious as to how you liked Thunderbird in comparison to the other wing coasters. While the wing coasters have not been my favorite, I found Thunderbird to be a bit more enjoyable.

Regardless of how the wood coasters are running, Holiday World will always be a park I will visit while in the area. I had a great time, both times I've been.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

I'm curious if after doing it this trip, which one you preferred in the end, the evening/ next morning days or full day style? I'm normally an opening to closing guy, especially in parks where I can buy q-bots/fast pass but in my trips to some of the Asian waterparks/Tokyo Disney parks and other Japanese parks, I do end up sitting around in the afternoons when it's packed waiting for fastpass times to come up or crowds to empty out/hit the evening shows.

^We were just talking about this the other day.

I prefer this method of night before, next morning/early afternoon. I also had several people on the trip come up to me and say the same. Here are some of the reasons why:

- Night rides
- Less crowds, better weather at night
- Less crowds, better weather in the morning
- Avoids the peak day crowds
- Avoids the heat of the day
- Visit over two days gives more time for maintenance or ride issues

Really the only negative we ran into is cost. Most of the parks you have to buy a two day ticket and decide whether to buy one or two day 'fast pass' options.

I actually really enjoyed Thunderbird quite a lot. The launch is great and I like some of the elements on the ride. I would actually put it above most (if not maybe all) of the other B&M wing coasters.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?
