^ They only have 7 million tied up in this investment, so we very well could see another major attraction shortly.

Remember when we saw "leaked plans" for a GCI at Six Flags Fiesta Texas back in 2017, then they announced Wonder Woman out of nowhere? I imagine this is a similar situation. Either this is an attraction coming years down the road or it was simply a proposal that never came to anything.

Either way, Cheetah Chase looks great. I'm not a big water park person, but when I finally get the chance to visit Holiday World you bet I will spend a great deal of time riding their water coasters!

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to make another trip to Holiday World.

Looks like the perfect coaster-slide for younger kids and families that might be a little too apprehensive about Wildebeest or Mammoth.

Those who truly know their BGT history would think of this. Fake fan. :p

Yeah it’s been way too long since I’ve been at Holiday World. Will finally return next year, I hope. What a water park they have.

Can’t wait for this! Splashin’ Safari is already a complete package of a water park. Adding a thrilling attraction with great capacity is just a cherry on top. Also great placement to spread out the crowds...and it’s over toward Hyena Falls. So at least it will shorten the walk between attractions.

Interesting that Mammoth and Wildebeest are magnetic slides while this appears to use water boosters.

For some reason I had thought Hyena Falls was removed? Must have been misinformation.

Good point. New sensations and variety - everyone wins.

I thought of that too. And it's mostly out in the open so everyone can see what it does. How cool for Holiday World to think about those little (but important) details.

Love it!! I look at this and think simply of the throughput. A shorter layout with dual loading flumes, so it should eat up people a lot more depending how many they can cycle through at once. I'm certainly hoping they'll be adding this to the next Holiwood Nights water park ERT lineup (and maybe a single rider's line on this too). Can't wait to try this, and very happy Holiday World's investing in a new ride, especially for their already very popular water park!

Now.. Cedar Point, it's time for CPS to get a water coaster!


It's time for Cedar Fair to explore water coasters in general.....

^This, or just higher capacity slides in general, versus a water park like Splashin' Safari with several (ZOOMbabwe, Zinga, Bakuli, Mammoth, Wildebeest, Cheetah Chase), so perhaps starting there.

Great addition! Except it's not gonna be world's first launched water coaster. There is one in Brazil already, opened in 2017 at Thermas dos Laranjais.
