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

I started coming here when i was tween and I loved it then! I am not big on amusement parks but i really like the Splashin safari. My husband and daughters loved riding the roller coasters. I love the wave pools and the lazy river! We stayed from open to close 9:30a-8:30 p. Suncreen and beverages are free!!! Parking is... More

The park was clean. Lots of great rides. But the thing I most disliked is that there isn't a decent place to spend the night nearby.

We have visited Holiday Worl 3 times now and love it more and more each time. The park is very clean, the staff very friendly and price is very reasonable. The amusement park has some great coasters and some good rides for people who aren't into roller coasters. The water park is absolutely fabulous! Our children run and play and... More

The only problem we had was the Legend was closed most of the day. It was very hot, so the free drinks was great.

We just visited Holiday World. WOW! What an awesome park. Honestly, I was expecting a rinkydink little park. It definitely exceeded my expectations. As everyone is saying, the free Pepsi products were a very nice surprise, (as our day there was a 90 degree day), and need I say, the sunscreen was also helpful (for once, I didn't get a... More

We live in Florida, the Mecca for theme parks so I wasn't sure that this place would impress me...boy was I wrong!!! Old fashioned rides I haven't seen since childhood, reasonable prices, included admission to a water park! Free soda!! Free parking!!! This place is amazing! We had the best time!!!

The employees and staff at the park are the nicest!! The park is very clean and neat! I have been coming to Holiday World ever since I was a very small child, when it was called Santa Clause Land. I wish the Cook family nothing but good things in the future. You all are a great family and I have... More

There is so much work behind keeping a park fresh, fun and busy. Many parks work on attracting the biggest crowds and suffer the consequences. This park is SUPER well run. The staff are nice people...not just "trained" to be nice. The park is so clean most visitors would guess the park is brand new. Even Disney can't keep their... More
