Officials at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus will announce details Thursday of a $22 million investment. The project represents the largest amount ever spent on a single ride in the attraction's nearly 70-year history. July 23, 2014
SANTA CLAUS, Ind. – $22 million Holiday World expansion for 2015: Since May 19, fans of Holiday World have searched for daily clues on the park's 66 Days at Sea microsite and posted thousands of guesses regarding plans for 2015. Excitement heated up with the addition of the park's live ConstructionCam a week ago, as enthusiasts can now witness the size of footers already being created for the project and the construction site's close proximity to the existing Voyage roller coaster.
Thursday evening, plans will be revealed live to the media and park guests from a stage constructed at Hyena Falls, followed by fireworks. Fans will be able to stream the announcement live at HolidayWorld.com from around the world. The $22 million investment is more than twice the amount spent before on any single ride in the park's 68-year history.
WHO: Park president Matt Eckert plus Lauren and Leah Koch (4th generation owners and park directors).
WHEN: Thursday, July 24, 2014
