Holiday World ride going away

SANTA CLAUS, IN (WFIE) - A popular ride at Holiday World and Splashin' Safari will not be there this season.

Giraffica, formerly known as Pilgrims Plunge, is being removed from the park.

Holiday World announced the decision on its official blog.

The ride had been open since 2009.

Holiday World officials say the ride is being removed because of downtime and lack of reliability.
