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.

Carsyn Plays Skee Ball at Holiday World

It was just like a scene out of The Exorcist.  Carsyn picked up an innocent little Skee Ball and hurled it across the room.  LOL!  One of the highlights of Safari Day, other than Carsyn screaming "I wanna see Jesus" and barreling across Holiday World toward the Nativity scene, was Jaclyn's little precious trying to play Skee Ball.  It was, well, a complete train wreck.  WATCH!

Chad Shares His One and Only Trip Advisor Post

The moral of today's story is don't mess with Tad.  He can actually fume and blow steam just like a volcano. LOL!  All week long here on WBKR, we are celebrating the fact that Splashin' Safari has been voted the #1 waterpark in the world by Trip Advisor.  That is a huge honor and, quite honestly, Splashin' Safari deserves the high praise.  And kudos to the folks who post on Trip Advisor for getting it right.  Because I love to travel and do it a bunch, I use Trip Advisor frequently to book trips and excursions for me and my friends.  Until recently, I had never joined the Trip Advisor community as a contributor.  But then, I encountered a tour company in St. Lucia who committed a gigantic no-no!  And I vowed to take them down!
