Pilgrim's Plunge

This is pretty sick, the first-ever water ride to have an elevator lift too! There's POVs and videos on the site as well. Looks awesome!

It looks pretty crazy, and odd at the same time. It is designed by Intamin.

The elevator lift looks awesome. You can board from either Holiday World, or Splashin' Safari

i disagree there 2 different types of rides
pilgrums plunge looks like an awesome water ride
but kingdaka is a good rollar coaster short yes but the launch is exciting no matter how many times you go on it

just hope pilgrims plunge isnt like kingdaka where it take 20 min to launch each ride and keeps breaking down

But did you also notice the supports holding up the tower are the elevators to the top? That's something impressive.

Also, Kingda Ka has smooth operations now. They dispatch very quickly now.
