Holiday World & Splashin' Safari Remove Big Attraction

The amusement park tell us the decision to remove the ride was painful.
Holiday World & Splashin' Safari will look different next season.

The amusement park has a history of adding world-record breaking rides... But this fall it will look different for whats missing.

Pilgrim's Plunge, recently re-branded "Giraffica", is no longer on park premises.

Park officials say this was a painful decision. "It was disappointing, it was a hard decision for us.' said Park President Matt Eckert, "We never like taking out an attraction, but we have big plans for the future."

Park owners say they removed it for a variety of reasons... The biggest being it was closed more often than open.

They decided to pull Giraffica a few months ago and the tear down started earlier this month. All that's left behind is concrete where the ride, at one time the world's tallest water ride, proudly stood.

So what does the future hold for Holiday World & Splashin' Safari?
