^ They'll probably want to have a second hotel in the town before they attempt that.

Can someone here give me a basic overview of how Hollywood Nights works? I'm tentatively planning on going next year and really have no idea where to begin. Isn't it usually late spring?

HoliWood Nights 2020

HoliWood Nights 2020 is on May 29 and May 30. If it's the same as past years, Friday will start with ERT at the water park and then the park has all the coasters open until 11. On Saturday, the park will have all the coasters open until midnight. All of Holiday World's coasters are great at night thanks to their setting, but the star is Voyage since it runs trimless.

During the day on Saturday, there will also be photo walkbacks for the coasters. The park also keeps you well fed with a dinner on Saturday and lots of snacks.

It's an awesome event and I can't recommend it enough! I met a lot of cool people last year.

It's also a mostly-afternoon/evening event too. The second day admits you to the park for the whole day from park opening until midnight, but the event stuff doesn't begin until the afternoon, in case you just want time to take in the park at your leisure or just sleep-in (which is something I really appreciate, compared to other events I've done going from early a.m. until late in the evening each day).

Two nights each of three solid hours of endless ERT on 4 roller coasters will never feel like it's not enough, and experiencing the insanity of Voyage at night needs to be on every coaster junkie's bucket list to try.

^I got an "almost" night ride on Voyage several years ago and it left me wanting more. That's the main reason I'm thinking of doing this event next year! Is the Santa Claus In still the only hotel in the area??

The area still doesn't have many hotels. I ended up staying 20-25 minutes away at a random Quality Inn.

There's a couple new-ish 3.5 to 4 star hotels off of the highway leading towards Louisville/St. Louis. Don't know how they are, but they're 20 ish minutes away from the park. Fairly easy drive. (Google Maps view)

But in town, yeah, it's Santa's Lodge.

I think I stayed at the exact same Quality Inn when I went a few years ago. Was a fine drive and got me to say I've been to Kentucky lol.

Yeah that Lewisport Quality Inn is the one!

It was your average Quality Inn. The only odd part was that when I walked in, the guy at the front desk was in the middle of a poker game with some buddies in the lobby.
