We had heard so much about past Holidaywood Night events we decided to make the short drive to Santa Clause, Indiana to experience this years event.
Friday night we started out with ERT in the water park. At the same time we were served light snacks to hold us over till dinner.
Raven, Legend, Voyage, Thunderbird ERT finished up the night with 4.5 hours of amazing ERT! We were able to just camp out on just about all of them and ride without having to get out of our seats. Basically the only thing that made use get off the coaster was our bodies telling us it was time to quit!!!
After a LATE night riding we arrived Saturday mornng for day #2 of riding.
We passed the time hitting some of the flat rides till it was time for out behind the scenes tour of Voyage and Thunderbird. This offered some amazing photo oppertunities of both coasters in action.
After our tour we had dinner and had the chance to bid on items that they park put in a silent auction. The items included coaster parts, lap bars, old park signs, coaster grease among other items.
Once again the ERT on the coasters started up around 7:30PM and this time went an extra hour.
There were storms all around on Saturday but they never really kept any of our activities from happening. As you can see from the photo above we had some moon light to help light the way during our Saturday Night ERT.
We left the park battered and bruised with probably over 50 rides on the 4 roller coasters total during the 1 and 1/2 day event.
We had a awesome time at this event. You get to meet several folks that enjoy riding and share stories with then. With the hospitality of a park like Holiday World you can’t go wrong. We have already made plans and cleared out schedules for next years events!
It is a must do for sure!
