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

We have been going to this park since before 2003. This park is close to us and worth the drive! We come back every year and will in further years! For all you get $40.00 is not a bad price. The staff is friendly and kind and you know what, nowadays you usually don't get that kind of treatment at... More

I love the fact that it is free parking and free drinks Food is also priced fair. I just wish they would stay open later. Like maybe 10 during the week and 12 on Friday and Saturday. I think they close way to early.

Visited Saturday, October 11th with three kids ages 10,7,and 5 and two adults. We arrived around noon and the weather was slightly cool (56 degrees). The crowds weren't that bad. The worst waits were for the spinning rides with low ride capacity like the scrambler, the flying eagles, and the swings. Roller Coaster waits never exceeded 20 minutes. The Legend... More

Went here August 30th always wanted to visit as I am a big roller coaster buff. Loved the free parking, free pop, excellent employees, and great coasters. Admission is rather cheap for a theme park and they offer a two day option for around $60 They may only have three big roller coasters but they are great especially the Raven... More

On every visit I am disappointed. The park is crowded, trash is on the pathways and the employees are rude and not helpful. I've even witnessed employees on their cell phones while working the control panels on rides. The food is not that good...pizza we ordered was cold and bland. Visited 2 separate bathrooms, both were very dirty and in... More

First off- the service at this place is bar none the best service I've ever had at an amusement park - and yes I've been to that big on in Florida. For instance, they have "cooling stations" all over the place - you can run under the sprinkler to cool off AND get fountain drink/water for no charge. Don't let... More

It's a small park with a water park attached. It does have a small cove with rides just for the tiny ones. Free soda and sunscreen. Food prices are the typical prices for a park. Very clean and maintained.

We've always loved Holiday World. It never fails to amaze us how far out of the way they go to keep this park super clean. All staff we encountered were friendly. The restrooms were even clean. I highly recommend visiting during the Halloween weekends. The prices are great, the lines are virtually non-existent, and the Halloween activities are pretty great,... More

We loved this place because it had rides for my whole family. The children range in age from 19-9. The problem with most places is some kids are bored why others are having fun. This wasn't the case with Holiday world. It was also nice that the kids that wanted to do the water park could do that why the... More

We have been to Holiday World with our children, in the past. Recently, my fiance and I got married and decided to stop by for the day as part of our honeymoon. We had a blast! Everyone is very friendly and the lines were not very long. We were disapointed to see that one of our favorite stores had closed... More
