Owner description: New in 2015: Thunderbird - the nation's first launched wing coaster! Located in Santa Claus in southern Indiana, this theme park/water park combo offers families a great getaway with all sorts of perks. 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!

Park is really clean and staff there is always friendly. I've been there two different times now and enjoyed going both times. Their free drinks, parking, and sunscreen are fantastic incentives for going. Price is fairly expensive, but that's expected from an amusement park nowadays. The focus seems to be on their water park, however, which is unfortunate because I'm... More

This park is always clean. We love the free drinks and sunscreen. You can easily spend a day here without riding all of the rides/slides (if you also do the waterpark). If you can come on a weekday, the lines aren't quite as long. Fun for all ages!

We stopped on a trip back home from Indianapolis and were so wonderfully surprised at this park. Great little place, not long lines. Some of the best wooden roller coasters we've ever been on in America. Free drinks, parking, and sunscreen all day. The water park was nice and we just relaxed there when the kids played in the slides.... More

We have been here several times and each time we are very pleased. The free soft drinks are a big plus so less money spent for that. Every year they add a new ride to the park, which is a plus as well. Staff has been helpful each time there was a question. Reasonable prices for daily attendance. If you're... More

We went this summer and it was amazing! Bumper cars were fun, water park was really fun, food was good but not really filling, and it seemed like everyone around us including us was having a good time. Plus, there were free drinks. The only problem was that there were people who didn't look very family friendly and one guy... More

Visited here one summer with my husband. Took a 16 hour drive from Long Island, but it was worth it. Staff is very friendly and pleasant and seem to want to be there unlike in other parks where the staff is sometimes rude and unfriendly. The free drinks all day give this park an extra star. Rides are typical but... More

Holiday World may be on the smaller side (and a bit in the middle of nowhere!), but it packs in some of the most outrageously fun water coasters and water slides I've ever experienced (including ones at the big parks like 6 Flags and Orlando water parks). The amusement park section is pretty amazing, too, but what really impressed me... More

We went the first week of July and stayed at the campground. Campsites are very close together, but quite nice. Our site was in the Dasher section on "Jolly", very close to the pool, the pool house (air conditioned!), toilets and showers. The bath house seemed fairly new and was really nice. It's also close to Blitzen's Kitchen with decent... More

This family owned park is one of the best in the world. Fantastic roller coasters, marvellous friendly staff and a fantastic water park. How can you not have fun. Also free access to soft drink machines throughout the park. There is even free sun cream available in the water park ( tried it once but found it too thick and... More
