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'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

The Halloween weekends offer something for all ages. Our 4 year old nephew kept saying "best day ever!" The waterpark was closed, but all of the rides in the amusement park were open. You can tell they put a lot of time into decorating for the holiday, even renaming some of the rides.

It was nice to be able to spend 2 days at the two parks. One day was at Holiday World and the second day was spent at Splashing Safari. My grandson and I went on a Monday and Tuesday in July and there were few lines in either park. The free drinks and sun screen helps a lot. Both with... More

This park continues to grow by leaps and bounds. It is still one of the cleanest park we have ever seen. They offer free soft drinks and sun screen. We are never disappointed here. The food prices are very reasonable. We are very excited for the new steel roller coaster coming in the spring 2015. Be aware that with the... More

The theme park is great, no question. Lots of MAJOR fun rides. But don't even think about skipping the water park, especially the two water coasters--Mammoth & Wildebeast. These are both better than the Crushin' Gushers at Disney World's Typhoon Lagoon! The lines are long but oh-so-worth the wait!!!

Our family drove up from Nashville for a one-day first-time visit to Holiday World on Labor Day, and it was well worth it! For $40 each (online ticket price) we had a full day of fun with wicked, crazy wooden roller coasters and some of the best water park rides we've ever done. The Mammoth was especially fun to ride...

Love, love, love this place! Great price (free parking), fun amusement park and even better water park! Love the fact that you drinks are readily available throughout the park and restroom facilities are always right there, too. Makes for an easy, enjoyable day with kids! We live near a Six Flags, but would rather drive to Holiday World and make... More
