There are several signs that summer is almost here. The leaves are green, the temperature is rising, and for us here in the Tri-State, Splashin' Safari water park at Holiday World opens its gates for the season.

As in year's past, Holiday World opened its doors to fans looking to ride their favorite roller coaster, or other attraction, a few weeks ahead of Splashin' Safari since the weather isn't necessarily the best for getting soaking wet just yet.

Unlike year's past, neither Holiday World, nor Splashin' Safari, have added a new ride for fans to enjoy after debuting The Thunderbird last season. But, that doesn't mean they've sat back and done nothing during the offseason. Instead of adding a whole new feature, they decided to upgrade a few existing favorites, namely The Legend wooden roller coaster.

Be sure to keep listening to 106.1 KISS-FM for your chance to win a pair of tickets to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, and check out Holiday World's official website for ticket info and hours of operations for both parks.
