Holiday World announced today that it will close its Paul Revere spinner ride at the end of this season and add a 65-foot Zamperla swing ride.

No name for the new ride, yet, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it won't be "Windseeker." ;^)

I will admit that this news is in the "meh" category, but honestly, almost anything is better than an Octopus. I will not miss Paul Revere's Midnight Ride.

James - actually, PRMR is a "spider," not an "octopus" ride. :)

Robert - right you are! We thought it would be fun to invite fans to suggest names, and I don't believe that one will float to the top. Here's a link to information about our contest: http://www.holidayworld.com/node/3654

I stand corrected, Paula... however, a spider by any other name is still a midway clunker! ;)

I look forward to winning the contest!

I won't enter the contest ('cause I'd feel weird entering as someone who covers the industry for a living). But here are my picks:

Revolutionary Whirl
Betsy Ross' Spinning Wheel
The Virginia Reel
Declaration of Spindependence (I actually groaned typing that.)

Robert, yours are a helluva lot better than mine..and I entered!

Actually, I thought Declaration Of Spindependence was better than you're giving it credit for...
