Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari the waterpark and theme park in Santa Claus, Indiana, is getting ready for the launch of its new water coaster this spring.
In the pipeline for the waterpark is Cheetah Chase, a dueling water coaster featuring two rafts travelling simultaneously. The launched water coaster uses hydro blast technology over a 1,700ft. track. Crews at Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari are building a 68,000-gallon balancing tank designed to recirculate the water that is used for the attraction.
Talking about the preparation of the highly awaited new water coaster, Matt Eckert, Holiday World’s president and CEO, said: “A lot of people think that once our gates close at the end of the year we flip a switch off, and flip it right back on in May and we’re ready to go. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes.”
Cheetah Chase will officially open at the park on May 7, 2020.
