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!

We visited Holiday World for two days and really enjoyed ourselves! It was one of nicest, cleanest, and least crowed park we have ever been to. It is a great place for families. Most of the rides are for two or more people. We loved all of the family sized rides at the water park! Even to food was good.... More

Even though I have lived in Indiana my entire life, I had never been to Holiday World. I have seen the commercials on TV for years. I finally went on 7/2. Wow! What a park! First of all, everything is spotless. It is by far the cleanest theme park I have ever been to (and I've been to Disney parks,... More

This park is by far the cleanest, most well-maintained, pleasant theme park experience I have ever had. The price was so low (by theme park standards) that I was primed for a mediocre day. But there were dozens of great rides, including my new favorite roller coaster: the Thunderbird. Drinks are free, which is a bigger luxury than you'd even... More

Excellent family park for families with young children and teens. Affordable, clean, and lots to do. You need 2 days to visit.

In spite of a rainy day, we had a great time. Took kids ages, 7, 8 & 13 and they all loved it. They even said it was more fun than their trip to Disney last month. Park is clean, people are friendly and the rides are great. A fun day!

I have been wanting to return to Holiday World after going as a kid probably 25+ years ago. We went on a Tuesday thinking crowds would be smaller. Lines for the rides were not too bad, we waited about 15 min for most of the big rides except the Voyage was about 45 minutes (not sure why this one was... More

There is something for everyone at this affordable, clean, and friendly theme park. For those unaware, park areas are based on holiday themes,---Christmas, 4th of July, Halloween and Thanksgiving. All rides (and even background music) are bent to these themes. Unbelievable roller coasters for the thrill seekers. But there are plenty of milder rides, too. A great mix! Free parking,... More
