Hundreds of people are on their way to Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari this week for the American Coaster Enthusiasts CoasterCon. Holiday World also expects to break a record during the event.

Park President Matt Eckert says this Wednesday or Thursday during CoasterCon, he expects the Thunderbird to have its 1 millionth rider. It just opened last season as the nation’s only launched wing roller coaster.

The Raven will also be honored as an ACE roller coaster landmark during the convention. The Raven opened at Holiday World in 1995 and helped to put the small town park on the map.
