Holiday World has confirmed that its new attraction for the 2014 season will be a swinging ship ride dubbed the Mayflower, to be hosted in the park's Thanksgiving area.

The Mayflower will be situated next to The Voyage, the wooden roller coaster that regularly tops enthusiast polls. It will be named after the ship that transported 102 English Pilgrims to New England in 1620, in one of the most famous journeys in early American colonial history.

The park's announcement video for the new addition is embedded below:

Several other improvements will be made to Holiday World in 2014. The most significant of these will be the addition of a weekly fireworks display on Friday nights between June and August. The car parking area will be updated, with additional benches and shade structures being added throughout the park.

At the Splashin' Safari water park, hours will be extended and a new restaurant, a new shop and more cabanas will be added.
