  • SANTA CLAUS – Buying a new home can be a “roller-coaster experience” and during Thursday’s episode of House Hunters, the buyers take that phrase literally, with a ride on Holiday World’s Thunderbird.

    “When the producers of House Hunters asked us for a tour of the park, we couldn’t wait to offer them a ride on Thunderbird,” said Holiday World’s president, Matt Eckert. “The home buyers - Tom and Terri - didn’t hesitate; they rode over and over. In fact, they spent two days with us.”
