Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus will unveil plans for a new $9 million ride Wednesday. Public Relations Director Paula Werne says the investment will be the largest ever for the park. Werne says the ride will be the first of its kind in the world and will be ready for the park's 2012 season.
Werne says as more people travel longer distances to go to Holiday World, they need to add new rides that have a high rider capacity. She says the new ride will mix themes familiar to visitors with new twists.
Werne says it's important to the park to have new rides ready for when the park opens. Construction begins next week and will be done by the time the park opens in 2012. She says construction will not disrupt visitors to the park for the rest of this season.
