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!

Clean, family atmosphere remains appreciated. We can take our children and not have concerns about a rough crowd and the workers are always engaging. Food choices are excellent and of course free sodas, sun screen and parking. Also discounts available via various sources such as DQ, or Pepsi bottles (empty). Already looking forward to our next visit.

My father took my youngest sister last year and they had a good time. So my husband and I decided to go this year without the kiddos (and I'm glad we did because it wouldn't have been a good trip). We visited the park on Monday July 27th and Tuesday July 28th. Let me tell you…there is a HUGE difference... More

There is nothing bad I can say about this park. The rides are excellent, the grounds are well maintained, and the people are the nicest theme park employees in the world. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced. My wife and I can go up there and only spend $20 at the park (except for tickets of course). I live... More

I seriously can not say enough good things about the park. While the price of the park has creeped up in recent years, it's still the best value for what you get, bar none. Free parking, free drinks, really add up on savings during the day when compared to other parks. They have recently built larger and faster coasters as... More

Visit here at least once a year with my grandbabies. Lots of fun and plenty to keep them entertained. It is really nice to visit in October when they have the fall celebrations and also Halloween attractions for the children.

Your ticket includes admittance to both Holiday World (theme park) and Splashin' Safari (water park). Both parks offer free drinks (soda, Gatorade, tea, water) and free sunscreen which were very nice perks on a hot, sunny day. I really enjoyed the Splashin' Safari water park. There was something for everyone: thrill rides like Mammoth and Wildebeest (water coasters), family raft... More
