Did you ever think a theme park would give away soft drinks? And not charge for parking? Use of inner tubes in the water park is free and so is sunscreen and Wi-Fi! No wonder Consumers Digest magazine named Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari the Nation’s Top Value Park. With three of the world's top roller coasters (including the #1 Wooden Coaster on the Planet -- The Voyage!), a huge water park (including Mammoth, the world's longest water coaster) all kinds of live entertainment, visits with Santa, yummy food, shopping, and skill games, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari offer loads of family fun all summer long! « less

The little gem of a resort that is Holiday World in southern Indiana should be on the bucket list of everyone from rollercoaster fans to waterpark devotees. Run by a family for years, the energy spent towards making every guest feel welcome is palpable from the top management to the folks running the cash registers in the gift shops. Attitude... More

Last summer our family took a two day trip to Holiday World. We go every year because I truly believe there is no park better suited for families. Holiday World does a great job keeping the extra costs to a minimum with free drinks, sunscreen and parking. Also, I have to add that I almost had a very bad experience.... More

My family and I go here multiple times a year and we love it! It is so much cheaper, so much more bang for your buck, cleaner, and shorter lines than anywhere else I can think of! I recommend going in early May because there are almost no lines. Now, of course the food prices are outrageous, but with free... More

Our Family, like most families of the US, can't afford a HUGE vacation. It may not be Disney, but it's the next best thing....plus cheaper and closer for us! My kids look forward to going to "Holiday World" each year as a family. They enjoy all kinds of rides, including the water rides! They NEVER outgrow Holiday World. We started... More

The amusement park was geared more toward little kids. There are 3 roller coasters for older kids though. The water park was the best part. I've been to Aquatica and some of the Disney water parks but Splashin Safari was the best water park I've visited by far. My 4 year old son was able to go all of the... More

A great theme park first of all that is perfect for younger children and young teens. Although its not full of thrill rides it has the best wooden roller coasters I've been on. The food in the park is very reasonable as far as theme parks go. You also have free drinks all day through the Pepsi oasis huts and... More

We went to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari on recommendation of my sister-in-law who had a fabulous time there. All I can say is that she had a completely different experience than we did. Let me start by saying the park is in fact super clean! Oh and you do get free refills. Terrific! Beyond that...well let's just say it... More
