Major New Ride Announcement Tonight at Holiday World

I cannot wait!  8:30pm CST tonight, Holiday World is set to make a MAJOR new ride announcement.  And they have been teasing us and dropping hints about it for months with their ingenious and clever website 66 Days at Sea. For the last 60-something days, the amusement park has been slowly giving clues and tonight the folks that have made educated guesses and wild stabs in the dark will learn if they were right, wrong, or close.  While we don't know exactly what the park is going to announce, there are a couple of things we are sure of.

What’s In My Luggage?

Chad always picks on poor little ole me when it comes to how much I pack when traveling. So, last night, (at 2:45am) when I was about to put my clothes in my suitcase for my beach trip, I decided to count and see just what I was taking with me. (Oh, in case you haven't listened to the Midday Show this week, I'm going to Florida with my family this coming week...wooooohooooo!)

Well, what do you think? Just how much did I really pack?!? Take a look and see...

Mystery Surrounds Major Announcement at Holiday World [Video]

The truth is out there.  Somewhere.  And just about every coaster enthusiast and amusement park buff has a theory about what Holiday World's big announcement is going to be.  Yep!  In May, the park launched a brand new website called 66 Days at Sea and that website serves as a countdown to Thursday, July 24th, when officials at Holiday World are set to make a MAJOR announcement.  But, so far, they are only giving extremely vague hints as to what that announcement may be.  But check out this video.  Two Indiana teenagers named Jordan and Alec have poured over every detail of every single clue and they think they're onto something.

The voyage officially began May 19th, 2014.  That's the day Holiday World launched its new 66 Days at Sea website.  At first look, it appears that the site is merely a companion piece to the park's brand new swinging ship ride, The Mayflower.  But is it?
