I think we should all give them a chance. We all thought things in the past were dumb until it happened. New Texas Giant for Example.

I really hope this happens! I've wanted to visit KK ever since 2004. I know the Koch family will do wonders for the park and I wish them the best of luck!

I'm sure the Kochs can make KK into a great park, but I get the feeling that this venture could be a bit canabalistic. I'd imagine that a decent amount of HW's market comes from the Louisville area.

What makes you think Holiday World wouldn't move their extreme rides to Santa Claus?

I don't see how they could possibly concoct something more extreme than The Voyage, and according to a recent (Thrill Network) interview with Dan Koch, Holiday World will soon attempt to make a splash in the steel coaster polls.

I really do like this idea. And I believe if there is anyone out their with industry experience that can make this happen...it's Holiday World. They have always (IMO) been very careful with big decisions involving HW, they don't just plop down a ride just to say they added another attraction. Best to them! =)

I was not aware that Dan Koch made such a statement. I will not retract my comment as I was equating extreme with steel coasters. Did he really use the word "splash"? If so I'll say AquaTrax first.

I added my own pun in there, Larry. Sorry to get your hopes up. ;-)

Here is the statement I was referring to:

6. What kind of coaster do you want to see next at Holiday World?

An award-winner! I think it’s pretty well known there’s a steel coaster in our future. Give us a little time. We are a Mom and Pop shop, but we love to buy big pieces to compete with mega parks. It has taken 66 years of hard work to even make this a possibility. All I can say is thank you to all those folks who have visited us to allow us the opportunity to build a signature piece. We are humbled that this will occur. It will occur- I guarantee it.

Will you retract your statement now? lol

If Holiday World is willing to take over Kentucky Kingdom, I would not expect Holiday World to add a steel coaster any time soon.

Could it be that the Holiday World people actually were hinting at a steel coaster for this park and not for their home park?
