This season, the big news from Holiday World, our state’s biggest amusement park, is the launch of the Wildebeest, billed as the world’s longest water coaster. Unlike the quick-drop of last season’s debut, Pilgrim’s Plunge, this four-to-a-raft ride takes you on a 2-1/2 minute journey covering a third of a mile of drops, twists and underground tunnels. Perhaps the best part: A conveyor lift replaces the usual water slide stairs.

I look forward to riding and reporting back to you on this sure-to-get-national-attention ride. For details, click here.
