America’s first Vekoma family boomerang coaster officially debuted today, as Indiana’s Holiday World opened for its 2024 season.

Good Gravy! takes riders in gravy boat-decorated cars forward and backward along 720 feet of cranberry-colored tracks from Grandma Gracy’s living room out through her yard. Along the way, riders pass through a giant cranberry sauce can in this Thanksgiving dinner-themed attraction.

To address what could be long waits on busy days, Holiday World will be offering return time cards to park visitors once the queue in the 1965-family-room-themed station building fills. For a preview of the Good Gravy! experience, check out this test run video from Holiday World featuring a car filled with stuffed (okay, plush) turkeys.The Midwest soon will get a second Vekoma family boomerang coaster with the opening of Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers in Camp Snoopy at Kings Island, just three hours northeast of Holiday World.
