Holiday World, Talk about a birthday present. Holiday World celebrates its 65th anniversary on Wednesday by announcing plans to build the world’s longest water coaster – called Mammoth – which opens in May at Holiday World Splashin park is “Water Safari.
I spun around the ride begins when an elevator conveyor carries the raft, which has six seats facing the center, atop a hill, then lets gravity take over the raft drop of 53 feet – or stories of five – a 45 degree angle. The rafts, which will rotate with the streams of water, then go up and over five hills, boxed and twists and turns in a dizzying period of 1,753 feet, or about one third of a mile. The speed and travel time will be determined during testing next spring.
No cheap thrill Mammoth comes with a price tag and $ 9 million, making it the most expensive addition in the park, which has spent about $ 25 million in additions and major in the last decade.
Another wet ride
Mammoth will sit alongside the 5.5 million wildebeest and that water coaster will be the second longest after the opening Mammoth.
The gift that keeps on giving the incorporation of Mammoth is expected to attract more visitors to the park, which has exceeded 1 million customers for each of the last five years – about 19 percent of whom come from Indianapolis.
Comments wow poured into the park site Facebook shortly after the announcement was made, with mixed reviews. While some lamented the fact the expansion is limited to the Splashin Safari Water Park, many were enthusiastic about the plans – a man he called “Nu on steroids.”
