http://HolidayWorld.com From the Holiday World Video Vault comes this video news release produced in early May of 1995 when the park opened its first wooden roller coaster, The Raven. Though not the tallest, longest or fastest coaster, The Raven was voted the #1 Wooden Roller Coaster on the Planet for multiple years back in the 1990s through 2002 (it was built in 1995) and continues to be a Top 10 wooden coaster for many.
http://HolidayWorld.com The Legend was the top-ranked new wooden roller coaster when it opened in 2000 (#7 overall), according to the readers of Amusement Today, who named The Legend the #18 Wooden Coaster in the World in 2011. Using our GoPro camera, we shot this POV (point-of-view) Legend ride in HD on August 2, 2012. Please note: Guests are not - under any conditions - permitted to take cameras on our roller coasters and most other rides.
