Totally! I will definitely have to make plans to attend this one and hope to hear some amazing mind shattering announcement before the release it to the gq... maybe a whole brand new area with a massive fast steel coaster? *keeping fingers crossed*

Can't quite figure out if BobblePat is hugging the TPR ornament ... or getting ready to sweep it out of her way with her omnipresent broom ...

I'm thinking that since the ornament is almost as big as her body that she's going to sweep it home and into place with her mighty mighty broom. Fear the broom ne'er more!

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I think my family will be returning to Holiday World in 2013.
It really is a great park with great coasters ( :airtime: ) and the best waterpark in the nation.
Top 10: 1. The Voyage 2. Outlaw Run 3. Millennium Force 4. SkyRush 5. Maverick
6. El Toro 7. Fahrenheit 8. Storm Runner 9. Thunderbird 10. Powder Keg

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Holiday World names Matt Eckert new president and CEO.

http://www.insideindianabusiness.com/newsitem.asp?ID=57333

The Board of Directors for Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari has named Matt Eckert the park’s new president and CEO.

“Matt was hand-picked by my late husband, Will, to be in a leadership role at the park; I know he would be pleased with our choice,” says park vice president Lori Koch. “As president and CEO, Matt will work closely with our board to keep our family’s park flourishing.”

Eckert began his tenure with the park in 2000, when he was hired to be the park’s controller; he served as one of the park’s two general managers from 2007 to 2012. He is an International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions Certified Attractions Executive and has served on its Human Resources Committee.

Eckert is a graduate of Indiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and insurance. He is a certified public accountant.

“My brother-in-law Dan stepped in to serve as president following Will’s sudden death in 2010,” says Lori Koch. “We thank him for his leadership and wish him well as he returns full-time to his law firm in Florida.”

Holiday World, named the country’s Top Value Park by Consumers Digest, will open for its 67th season on May 4. Splashin’ Safari, ranked as the nation’s #1 Water Park by TripAdvisor.com, begins its season on May 10. For more information, visit HolidayWorld.com or call 1-800-467-2682.

I think this will be the 1st time in the parks history that the Koch family has not been fully in charge.
