Interactive dark rides usually mean putting laser guns in the hands of guests and getting them to shoot at as many things inside as possible. Not so with Gobbler Getaway, the much kinder and more friendly thankgiving themed interactive dark ride at Holiday World.

In the fictional town of Autumn Falls, the turkeys have escaped just before the Thanksgiving holiday! It's the job of Gobbler Getaway riders to round them up using turkey callers. Scores are kept as riders hit their targets, and the final turkey tallies are revealed at the end of the ride.

Sally Corp have done a wonderful job with Gobbler Getaway and in adapting their more usual laser guns into the unique turkey callers. The blacklight style scenery is bright and colourful, and there are plenty of turkey targets to aim for. Each time a turkey is hit it reacts with either a sound effect or some kind of animation.
