In our never-ending quest to educate the general populous that even though we're closed over the winter a lot of work takes place, we bring you this first in a series of websiodes about The IT Men of Holiday World.
Meet Steven and Casey from our IT department as they take you for a peek behind the vitual curtain.
Today they're at Kringle's Ice Cream. I think we're in for a treat. And we all might just learn something ...
What other seemingly insurmountable task would you like to see our IT Men attempt to conquer? Please comment below.

Our Coaster Cats have quite an expansive work space.
During the winter months, our coaster maintenance technicians - Anthony and Heath are in the above photo - bundle up and head out to perform their off-season track work.
Right now, the crazy curves that race Voyage riders back into the station is getting the attention.
And what the heck is Jon up to? He's cut through the eight layers of wooden track (you heard right - eight layers, just like Frosted Mini Wheats) and is per- forming the age-old ritual of out-with-the-old and in-with-the-new. Yes, that's snow on the track.
The Voyage is 1.2 miles long. It has more "air time" than any other wooden roller coaster.
More tunnels, too.
Last summer, the Travel Channel named Voyage #1 in its "Most Insane Wooden Coasters" special.
Are you craving some night rides on Raven, Legend and Voyage? You might want to look into a special event we are planning for coaster enthusiasts called HoliWood Nights. It's for members of coaster clubs we partner with - so everyone in attendance is "coaster crazy."

Our 16 new cabanas are popping up out the ground like spring crocuses.
... or is the plural of crocus croci?
Either way, the warmer temps are truly appreciated by our crews working hard to ready the park for opening in May.
Please check out our Cabana Information page for more details.

Nothing like a chilly day to get you in the mood to dig around in the archives.
In this case, is was our Video Vault.
Here's a show - sort of an infomercial - that aired back in 1989.
Prepare yourself for a park with some familiar rides and buildings - and others that are just a memory.
Do you recognize yourself (or anyone else in this video)? Do you remember riding some of the rides that are now retired? We'd love to hear from you - please comment below!
