Do you think if the tunnel is skipped for this year, will it be build for next year instead or are the plans for the tunnel completly scrapped.

It's my understanding we aren't throwing away the plans.

Thanks, Paula

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

A bit disappointing about the tunnel...that's definitely my favorite part of Frightful Falls.

I guess the 135 foot elevator lift and drop will make up for that, though. ;)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Thanks for that little tidbit Paula, and without the tunnel I think it will build the anticipation (or terror) of ascending the tower even more as the boat floats closer and closer to it. It might actually be better without it.

Wow, the area really looks great...

I wonder if the park will add foliage to the Pilgrims Plunge area?

Also, with the Splashin' Safari path running into the Holiday World path, how will the parks be separated?

Since Splashin' Safari isn't a separately-charged park, my guess is that the path going under The Voyage will access a secondary gate to the water park.

How much of a nerd does it make me that I'm almost more excited about the new path under Voyage than I am PP?

Pilgrims Plunge testing starts today

Postby Raven Maven » Mon Apr 06, 2009 10:44 am

...in a few minutes, actually. :)

Shortly after 1 pm CDT today, the first boat will be lifted up the drop (about 1/3 of the way up) by crane for the first test.

Testing will continue this afternoon and tomorrow morning.

Our Pilgrims Plunge construction cam will provide a live view.

Thanks, Paula
