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 park will remind you of your childhood and a more innocent time. The park is like the old roadside amusement parks of the past with some obvious exceptions. The park is ultra clean, free sun screen is a huge plus. The park as free soft drinks(Pepsi) which I thought before I arrived must have a catch to it, but... More

I went to Holiday World this summer with my sister, her daughter ( my niece) and her daughter ( my great niece.) What a great day. My sister and i are young at heart in our late 50s early 60s. It was a wonderful place for all of us. Pepsi/ Holiday World provided drink stations thought the park with soda,... More

Even in the rain on 8/31, it was a great time as always!! The lines weren't long, and we got to go on all the rides we wanted! The water park is still the best around, and the food is good and isn't over priced. If you haven't been here before, it's totally worth the trip!!

Decided to go last minute over Labor Day weekend. Got in somewhat late on Sunday evening and found a hotel about 10 minutes away. Forecast was on an off rain. We have a 11 year old and 7 year old. I did ALOT of research on every ride so that I knew what my kids would likely go on and... More

This place was amazing even if it started raining mid day. There is so much to do. There are 2 wave pools a lazy river plenty of water slides and roller coasters. The drinks and sunscreen are free and self served. The place was very clean and the kids loved it. My only complaint is that the food isn't all... More

We travelled to Holiday World with several friends and family members. It is a great combination of amusement and water park. We concentrated more on the water rides, but it's also a wooden roller coaster enthusiasts dream park. The water coasters were a new and exciting experience for us, and we weren't let down. We rented cabanas which were great... More

I wanted to ride the best wooden roller coaster and this park did not disappoint. We drove 5+hours. And I would gladly do it again. Wonderful.

Absolutely the best water park in the country. I have been to Cedar Point, Kings Island, Disney, etc. The park is very family friendly and very clean. Free drinks and sunscreen is included in the admission price. Family of four can eat lunch and dinner for around $20 -$25. Don't miss this great place for family fun!!

I visit Holiday World every year and it never gets old! Free parking, free drinks, cheap/tasty food, nice family environment. There is no other water park that compares to Spashin' Safari!
