Holiday World To Add New Attractions

Last updated on Saturday, September 7, 2013

(SANTA CLAUS) - Next May, Holiday World amusement park will look a little different as the owners said they plan to expand and add new attractions.

Holiday World announced Friday they will "add a classic swinging ship ride" named the Mayflower to its Thanksgiving-themed section of the park. The ride will hold ups to 60 riders and swing 54 feet in the air over a pool of water.

Park president, Matt Eckert, said Holiday World has a few projects set for 2014.

Projects for 2014 include:

Eckert said the improvements will cost about $8 million and the cost will not translate to an increase in ticket prices.

Holiday World & Splashin' Safari will reopen to the public on September 14 and 15 after being closed this weekend for private outings. Happy Halloween Weekends begin September 21.
