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 had a pretty good time here. It was miserably hot, and lines for water rides were long enough that we skipped a bit of what we wanted to do. It was also my first time ever going on a weekend, so much busier than I am used to. Neither of these could be controlled by the staff, so we... More

The place is very clean. With very friendly staff. Free parking and shuttle to the entrance. Prices are not bad. The free soda is a good thing. We spent most of our time in the water park. Lockers are $10 or $15 depending on size. You buy a wrist band. Make sure to have correct change. Or you will get... More

Roller coaster parks like Kings Island and Cedar Point are great, but not really suited for all ages. Holiday World definitely takes the lead in family fun! They have free drinks, too, which means no paying big $$ for beverages. I love the theme at Holiday World, as well. It's so fun and exciting! :)

This had a lot of fun experiences with a nice blend of watery thrills and more domesticated rides for the younger or less adventurous. We... More

Our family visited Holiday World for the first time earlier this month, and I can’t emphasize enough how much we enjoyed our day at the park. Here’s just a quick overview… -Tickets/Cost: We pre-purchased our tickets online and received the $5 off discount; the entry fee for this park is very reasonable. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find... More

Holiday world has the best water park around and the fact that drinks are free is nice. Lots of rides that families can ride together. Very clean and thoughtful of families. The price is right even if you are on a budget.

This place is spotless and well managed. Lots of customer friendly amenities. The free soda and SPF suncreen stations are very accessible throughout the park. Two wave pools spread the crowd out and there are plenty of staff available to help. I can see why many families return here often. Admission is a bit pricey but you get what you... More

This first visit to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari was a little detour on our cross-country trip. We'd been to Disney's Animal Kingdom and Universal's Islands of Adventure a week earlier and we've visited Disneyland countless times as annual pass holders, but DH wanted to give the kids a slightly different experience, so off to Santa Claus, Indiana it was...
