In late November Holiday World announced plans for a new addition to the 4th of July section of the park.  They purchased the "Firecracker" a nostalgic ride retired from another amusement park and will restore it.

Check out the big reveal video that Holiday World released for the new ride!

The "Firecracker" appropriately named was first introduced as an amusement park ride in 1972 at LeSourdsville Park near Cincinnati, Ohio (however the park closed in 2002).  It was then sold to Fun Spot in Angola, Indiana, until that park shut down in 2008.
