Ligonier, PA -- Never a park to rest on its laurels, Idlewild & SoakZone (www.idlewild.com), rated the "Best Kids Park in the World” and one of the "Best Parks for Families" announced today that a season long celebration of its 135th anniversary will include several new special events and family entertainment offerings. Opening on select days and weekends beginning May 24, and daily starting June 6, the park continues to ride the wave of success brought on by last season’s addition of the popular Wowabunga Family Wave Pool.
Thomas & Friends® Headline Five New Shows
The Park’s new and exciting entertainment line-up returns to the family-favorite song and dance shows that Idlewild guests enjoy, highlighted by THOMAS & FRIENDS® FULL STEAM AHEAD LIVE! This popular kid’s show will be featured on a brand new stage in Raccoon Lagoon, named the Really Useful Stage, and will feature a photo opportunity with everyone’s favorite #1 Blue Engine - Thomas - along with a meet and greet opportunity with Sir Topham Hatt, Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor, following each show. On other park stages, guests can enjoy two different Country shows: The Heart of Country and Miss Dolly’s Country Follies. Evening entertainment at the Hillside Theater includes Camp Rockmore – a zany comical tribute to days gone by, and the closing show, Believe, a journey through a world of hope and dreams!
