Good Gravy, Holiday World

Back in August 2023, there was a very exciting announcement from Holiday World. A new $10 million family roller coaster would be opening in May 2024 to the Thanksgiving section of the park named "Good Gravy" where guests will embark on their adventure in a gravy boat to help Grandma Gracy make some more gravy!

It is a boomerang roller coaster and is said to be "dynamic enough for thrill seekers, yet gentle and smooth enough for children and even Grandma Gracy." This week, testing has begun which can be seen in the video embedded below.

Holiday World released the following information regarding this new family roller coaster coming in May 2024:

"Good Gravy!, Holiday World’s first family roller coaster, is a 1,500-foot wild ride to save Thanksgiving dinner! You’ll travel forward up a 77-foot spike then backward to make more gravy and save Thanksgiving dinner! With a 38-inch minimum height and a max speed of 37 mph, this ride is sure to excite the whole family.

Your journey begins at Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma Gracy’s house (her sister, Abigail, spends her time at Gobbler Getaway). Grandma Gracy is renowned for her Good Gravy, and Grandpa Gavin is its biggest fan! This year for Thanksgiving, the unthinkable happens: the family runs out of gravy! It’s up to you to help Grandma make more Good Gravy and save Thanksgiving dinner.

"As you whisk up a fresh batch of gravy, you’ll dodge gigantic kitchen accessories and ingredients, including a chicken timer, whisk, rolling pin, Koch Dairy bottle, and a box of Ruth’s Stuffing. 

Just like Thanksgiving dinner, there’s something for everyone! Good Gravy! is dynamic enough for thrill seekers, yet gentle and smooth enough for children and even Grandma Gracy. 

It’ll have the whole family saying, “Gee Whillikers! That’s some Good Gravy!” 

You can check out the following video which was released by Holiday World to advertise this new roller coaster.
