Description:

New in 2015: Thunderbird - the nation's first launched wing coaster!...

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!

Fantastic Water Park

Visited as a family with young kids. The kids loved the water park, the carousel and the spinning tea cups. Free soft drinks and sun screen included with admission price.

Need 2 days to do all the fun stuff! The roller coasters were my son's favorite. If you like theme parks, you will enjoy this one as much as your children.

Everything was clean, staff was friendly and there was something to do for everyone. We had previously traveled there in October and was not able to do the... More

Holiday World has something for everyone...children, teens, and adults will find at least one ride that they will enjoy! The Thunderbird, Voyage, and Wildebeest are just some of my personal favorites, even though there are so many more

One of the best theme parks you could ever visit! This is one of the cleanest, most family-friendly, and cost-effective parks you will ever go to. The prices are hard to beat and it's close to where I live. Although food is the most costly thing you'll have during your time, you can't beat free parking, sunscreen, and soft drinks.... More

This is one of the cleanest, most family-friendly, most cost-effective amusement parks you'll ever experience. This is still family-owned and it shows. Free soft drink stations and sunscreen!!! The water park is unbelievable...definitely top notch. I have been going here for years, and it gets better each time! This place used to be a best-kept secret, but it looks like... More

Me and my wife took our child here she loved the place we're there till closing for 3 days. Free drinks are a plus. This place is worth a visit although I have no desire to go back its worth doing atleast once. Can't remember what admission was but remember it was reasonable.
