Park News - (2/10/2024) The local news dropped by Holiday World to check out how things are going at the construction site for the new “Good Gravy!” roller coaster. Other projects in the works are refinishing work on some of the waterslides, replacing track sections on all three of their wooden coasters and more.


icon_STOP2024 - Good Gravy! Family Coaster - (4/12/2024) Things are looking “Good” over at Holiday World as they prepare to open the new “Good Gravy!” family shuttle coaster. The park has even posted a video where they’ve loaded all the seats with giant plush Turkeys and sent the train for a test run to get their approval.
    Look for Good Gravy to open to guests on May 11th, 2024.
    (3/17/2024) Good news from Holiday World was released, as the “Good Gravy!” roller coaster has successfully completed the first test run! Check it out below! On a somewhat related note, I’m told that the park has also launched a newly updated and modernized version of their website as well for the 2024 season so check it out.

    (11/25/2023) Holiday World has posted an animated preview video of the themed queue you will experience when getting in line for the new Good Gravy! roller coaster in 2024. The animated preview takes you right into “Grandma’s House”, past the living room, bathroom, past the kids bedroom, the study and more as you approach the loading station (the garage) just past the dining room and kitchen.

    (11/21/2023) Created by Vekoma, the Good Gravy roller coaster train coming to Holiday World has to be one of the most uniquely themed roller coaster trains ever designed. Themed like a giant gravy boat that you might find sitting on Grandma’s Thanksgiving table this week, it even has a big gooey drop of gravy flowing out of the front. The train was on display for the attendees at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando last week, which you can see by following the link above.
    (11/12/2023) Holiday World has shared a new construction update for their new Good Gravy family launched coaster, coming in 2024, along with the nearby new play structure. Check it out below.

    (10/25/2023) The first track for Holiday World’s new Good Gravy roller coaster has now arrived at the park.

    (8/18/2023) A construction video from Holiday World has been posted showing off all the progress on Good Gravy!

    (8/3/2023) Another fun video of the new “Good Gravy! Family Coaster” that is coming to Holiday World in 2024 can be seen below.






    (8/1/2023) Holiday World has announced that they will add the "Good Gravy! Family Roller Coaster" to the park for the 2024 season, bringing the first Vekoma Family Boomerang coaster to North America. The shuttle coaster will feature coaster trains that look like gravy boats that are pulled backwards up a cranberry colored lift hill before being dropped, hitting 37mph. The train will go through a 1,500 ft course, pass through a giant cranberry can themed tunnel before hitting a 77 foot tall spike. After a brief weightless moment the trains will then soar backwards through the course and back to the station.
    As mentioned, this is a family roller coaster, so it will only have a 38 inch height restriction.
