What’s new Wednesday! Big Announcement time!
Well Fans, you’ve heard about what we’ve done this winter and spring at the park to make our general appearance better, our food stands and admissions gate more efficient and our lodging more accommodating and interactive. It is our hope that whether it’s our hand breaded, golden fried chicken, our new 18 hole miniature golf course coming at the Inn, or something as basic as the rebuilt Dragon Island bridge, we at the Adventureland Resort continue to surpass your expectations of customer service and allow for the creation of family memories for years to come. Now, into the second generation of family operating the resort, we want our fans to know that the plaque with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote which has hung in our office for so long is not looked at so much as an ideal in hopes of being achieved someday, but an obligation that frames all of our decisions – “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
It is with that enthusiasm that we have the most significant announcement to make since the construction of Adventure Bay. But first, we have some news that we know will make many very sad. Labor Day weekend, 2015 will mark the last operating days for the beloved Log Ride. The Log Ride has been a park staple for decades – tens of thousands of photos, screams and splashdowns have been had on this ride, but all great things must eventually come to an end. We know that this was a fan (and personal!) favorite, but we want it to go out on it’s own terms. We encourage all of our fans to take advantage of this advance knowledge and get in your last ride. The Log Ride is over 40 years old, and while still structurally sound, technology for rides has advanced by leaps and bounds in that time period. It is requiring an enormous amount of upkeep and maintenance that isn’t feasible long term. We promise to provide our Fans with a suitable replacement, sooner rather than later.
So, like the mythological phoenix, from the Log Ride’s ashes, Adventureland is proud to announce the construction of “The Monster”, our new steel roller coaster opening in June of 2016!! What’s The Monster?
With a 2500 foot steel track, 133 foot vertical lift hill, 5 inversions, a 101 degree first drop (that is steeper than anywhere in Iowa or our surrounding states) and 10 “airtime” moments - The Monster is sure to give you a thrilling scare! It will cross our existing Sky Ride 8 times and boasts the first negative-G stall loop in the western hemisphere!
We’ve been giving away a pair of tickets for the last three “What’s new Wednesdays”, but this time, we’ve got something a little more spectacular to offer. “Share” this post by Friday, July 10th at noon central time and you will be entered to win not only four tickets the last day the Log Ride will operate AND the last ride on the Log Ride (maximum four people), but you will also receive two Season Passes for the 2016 season and…. Wait for it…. 2 seats on the official public inaugural ride on The Monster along with some new Monster gear! We’d like to note that with such an offer, there are some restrictions that apply which will be provided to the winner. If those restrictions limit out the original winner, a replacement will be chosen until a qualified winner is chosen.
Thank you for being a Fan of Adventureland. Everyone in the Adventureland Family strives each and every day to provide the cleanest, safest and friendliest atmosphere possible for all of our guests. We hope to continue to be the foremost family entertainment facility in Iowa for many more decades to come and we thank you for your continued support! Don’t forget - you have to SHARE this post on Facebook by noon on Friday July 10th to be eligible to win!
