SANTA CLAUS, Ind. - We've gotten a first look at the big plans Holiday World has in store for its 2015 season.
A new ride called "Thunderbird" will be the nation's first launched wing coaster. And it's Holiday World's first major steel rollercoaster.
Right at the start, you'll be launched from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds, to shoot upside-down 14 stories in the air.
The "wing coaster" seats hang off the side, meaning there will be nothing above or below the rider.
