As of July 4, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari will officially open with the premiere of Cheetah Chase: The World’s First Launched Water Coaster.
“We’re excited to announce the newest addition to our award-winning and record-holding water coasters,” says park President Matt Eckert. “With a first-of-its-kind flat launch and dueling features, we know this ride is going to be a hit with families, and we’re so excited to bring families here to experience the fun!”
With more than 1,700 feet of combined track, Cheetah Chase is the first water coaster of its kind. It is among the first dueling water coasters in the world, and is the first to feature a flat-launching section to start the ride. Riders will be propelled using targeted water nozzles (rather than Linear Induction Motors used for Wildebeest and Mammoth).
To aid in social distancing efforts, Cheetah Chase, along with Wildebeest, Mammoth, Zinga, and Zoombabwe, will operate on the parks’ inLine Reservation System. Guests will be able to use their phones to wait in line, or will be able to make a reservation at the entrance of the ride. Guests will only be allowed to enter these lines by waiting virtually. Both wave pools, Bahari River, and any kids’ play areas will be accessible without use of the virtual line system.
In addition, the park will be changing hours and removing their Happy Halloween Weekends event for the 2020 season, but adding two more weekends of Splashin’ Safari operations.
“This was a difficult decision for us to make,” says fourth-generation owner Leah Koch, “but it’s one that we feel is best for our employees, our Guests, and our future. This year hasn’t been typical in any way and the best option we have is to manage our business conservatively so we can return to better hours and deliver an even better Guest Experience for our 75th season in 2021.”
Due to the change in calendar, Friday Night Fireworks will be moved to Saturday nights. 2020 Season Passholders will be given additional perks, and will have an opportunity to purchase deeply discounted 2021 Season Passes.
Holiday World will also be hosting 4th of July Fireworks this Saturday at 10:00 PM Central Time.
Holiday World is still hiring for 250 additional spots created for inLine Reservation System, enhanced cleaning procedures, and more. Those interested should visit HolidayWorldJobs.com.
In accordance with Governor Holcomb’s most recent address, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari will remain at 50% capacity. Holiday World’s inLine Reservation System will be in place for the remainder of the season to help with social distancing.
Guests who do not have season passes will need to reserve their spots online by purchasing a date-specific ticket using the park’s Pick Your Price Calendar. For more information, visit HolidayWorld.com
