A wonderful national organization called FAAN (the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) announced this morning that Holiday World is the recipient of the 13th Annual Mariel C. Furlong Award for Making a Difference.
This is a huge honor. The best award, though, is the sweet little faces of the children who were able to safely eat at the park with the rest of their family last summer. Here's an example of some of the wonderful stories we heard. And here's another.
Many thanks to the Tri-State Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Support Group in Evansville, who nominated us for this award.

Not exactly an ideal day for testing a new water ride.
At 36 degrees out, we were grateful that at least it was water, not ice.
It was snowing like crazy for part of the morning.
In the afternoon, though, testing began.
A boat was hoisted up the 131-foot drop hill (elevator testing hasn't started yet) and then released.
Testing will continue Tuesday, as we test varied water depths.
After that, the pool will be drained so that adjustments may be made to the track. It's all part of the process...
Please remember, this is a work in progress. We'll post more test videos in the coming days.
For now, please put your #2 pencils down. We'll continue tomorrow.
