North America's first "family boomerang" coaster, Holiday World will share this title with Kings Island. Of course, this roller coaster is located in the park's Thanksgiving section, and who doesn't love a little gravy? Guests will ride in a train shaped like a giant gravy boat atop a cranberry-colored track and through a giant can of cranberries while dodging oversized kitchenware. This Vekoma-designed family boomerang coaster features a track layout that does not form a complete circuit earning it the shuttle designation. With two ends the train is required to travel both forward and backward during the ride experience.

A ride on Good Gravy! begins with a backward ascent up a 77-foot lift hill. Upon reaching the top, the train drops, reversing the direction of travel to forward. Unlike Vekoma's large Boomerang coasters, the family version has no inversions. Good Gravy! reaches the halfway point with an ascent and then descent, changing the direction of travel on a dead-end spike hill. The train then repeats the layout with near misses of the kitchenware and traveling through the cranberry can while going backward.
