Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is coming off another successful season. The park debuted Thunderbird in 2015. This was the park’s largest investment and the nation’s first launched wing roller coaster. The 2016 season saw the debut of The Legend roller coaster reborn. In 2017, the park will debut a classic ride that will be one of a kind. Firecracker will join the line up of rides as one of only few Calypso rides in North America.
Update on Firecracker: The ride is undergoing refurbishment and is scheduled to open with the park on April 28, 2017. The ride has an extensive history before landing at Holiday World. Before it was purchased by the park it was once a ride at LeSourdsville Amusement Park in Cincinnati, OH. The park closed and it was moved to another park in Indiana before being purchased by Holiday World. Firecracker will debut as one of only few Calypso style rides in North America.
