Holiday World to announce $22 Million Investment for 2015


Holiday World is set to announce more big plans for next year — in fact, the biggest ever!

The family-owned park is planning to invest $22 million in the park — it’s largest investment to date.


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 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.

Park president Matt Eckert plus Lauren and Leah Koch (4th generation owners and park directors) will make the announcement this Thursday, July 24 beginning about 8p at Hyena Falls; visitors to the park that day are welcome to attend. A stage, screen, and sound system will be set up and ride animation will be previewed, followed by fireworks.
