It's the unofficial start to summer when the theme park opens its gates for the summer season.
It's the unofficial start to summer - Holiday World opened for the season Saturday and adrenaline junkies had beautiful weather for the first sailing of the park's newest ride, the Mayflower.
The Mayflower is a swinging ship ride in the Thanksgiving section.
But the park has other additions as well.
Splashin' Safari has a new gift shop -- and a new restaurant called the Wildebeestro.
Mrs. Klaus' kitchen also got a major face lift.
Splashin' Safari will open May 16th with extended hours.
