WJLT will qualify 20 listeners total for the grand prize event
Each qualifier in the contest will win the following: THREE tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari (redeemable ONLY the day of the grand prize event) and a case of Mt. Dew. Each qualifier will use the additional two HW tickets for the two team members they will bring to compete with them at the grand prize event. Due to strict weight restrictions on board Cheetah Chase, the MAXIMUM weight allowed inside each boat is 525 pounds. The MINIMUM weight for each boat is 225 pounds. NO individual rider may exceed more than 340 pounds. Any team weighing in above or below those specific set limits will be disqualified. And, NO teams of two will be allowed to compete. Each qualifier must be a part of a TEAM OF THREE that meets weight restrictions. Also, each team will be weighed before each race they compete in, so teams will need to plan for additional weight caused by wet clothing, etc. Due to the nature of the event, a team’s official weight could shift from race to race.
Also, seating order in Cheetah Chase boats will be determined by weight/size of individual riders. For each team of 3 riders, the heaviest rider will sit in the back (seat 3), the next heaviest rider will sit in the middle (seat 2) and the lightest rider will sit in the front (seat 1).
By the way, only ONE qualifier per household is allowed and you may only qualify on ONE participating station. However, we strongly encourage qualifiers to build their race teams with members of their households.
Important definition. A TEAM= the official qualifier, plus two more team members.
Qualifiers must be 21-years-old or older. However, team members for the grand prize event just have to be old enough to clear the height (42 INCHES) w/ ADULT) and weight requirements for the attraction. Team members failing to meet those height and weight restrictions will be disqualified, thereby causing disqualification of the entire team.
Grand Prize Giveaway: On Saturday, June 19th, 2021, all 64 official qualifiers are required to be at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. Registration/check-in for the grand prize giveaway will begin promptly at 9am and will conclude at 9:45am CST. Listeners qualifying on WBKR will check in with WBKR staff, WDKQ with KDQ staff, and MY 105.3 with WJLT staff. Registration will be held just outside the main gates of the main Holiday World entrance. At 9:45am, all qualifiers will make their way (as a group) to Splashin’ Safari and Cheetah Chase for the grand prize event.
Teams will enter the queue line in order of appearance in The Great Cheetah Chase bracket.
The grand prize event, The Great Cheetah Chase, will begin promptly at 10am CST aboard the Cheetah Chase inside Splashin’ Safari. Participants should be dressed for and ready to ride the Cheetah Chase. Due to time constraints, there will not be time to change clothing. You must come dressed to compete. You are responsible for your belongings; Locker Rental will not be available prior to the event start time.
At the Cheetah Chase coaster, each qualifier and their team members will compete in an NCAA-inspired tournament bracket of 64 teams. The event is SINGLE ELIMINATION, with the winner of each race advancing further into the bracket. Ultimately, the field of 64 will be narrowed to two teams, who will compete in the FINAL “Cheetah Chase” for the grand prize: a Puma camper from Owensboro RV, three season passes to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, and a year-supply of Mountain Dew.
The winner of each race will be determined by Townsquare Media staff positioned at the official finish line. In the event of a dead-heat, the two teams involved in that tie will race in a tie-breaking event.
**Qualifers MUST be present to win. There will be NO team substitutions under any circumstance. The team you arrive with will be the team you compete with for the duration of grand prize execution. Anyone determined to be in violation of this rule will be disqualified from the competition and grand prize consideration.**
In the event a qualifying team is a no-show, they will enter the official race bracket as a BYE. Any team bracketed against a “BYE” team will automatically advance in the bracket. However, the advancing team will still get the opportunity to participate in that “race” for practice. They will “compete” (for fun and, more importantly, practice) against a team comprised of radio station personnel.
Positions in the bracket will be determined by draw in advance of the grand prize giveaway. Though qualifying teams will represent three different radio stations, there’s no guarantee those teams will be separated in the early rounds of competition. The draw may or may not be posted via radio station web and social media sites in advance of Saturday, June 19th.
In the event of a ride malfunction or inclement weather, there could be significant delays in the execution of the grand prize bracket or complete cancellation and rescheduling of the grand prize event. If that occurs, the make-up date will be announced to competitors ASAP. If a mechanical issue or weather delay affects the outcome of a race (or multiple races), those contestants will be asked to contest the race again. Those decisions are left to Holiday World and Townsquare Media staff and are indisputable and final.
Plus, for the safety of all contestants/participants, ALL Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari ride/safety rules will be enforced:
Guests must have the ability to sit upright in the boat and maintain control of upper torso, head, and neck. Physical and cognitive ability is required to maintain the riding position.

At minimum, Guest must have sufficient arm remnants to grasp both handles on the boat, along with sufficient leg remnants to maintain the riding position.
