This amusement park was great! It’s so affordable. Only $50 for both the amusement and water park aannnddd drinks are free! There are plenty of drink stations set up throughout the park where you won’t have to wait forever, even in the summer heat. We also found the food and snacks to also be reasonably priced, especially compared to other parks. My son is not quite yet 2, so our roller coaster days are put on hold for a while, but I was happy with the selection they had for little ones to ride. They even have a big play ground and splash pad set up for the little ones. We went on opening weekend, so the water park wasn’t open yet, but it looks huge and has a lot of options for all ages. I definitely want to go back when it’s open. This is a very family friendly park and I loved the different holiday themes. It’s completely worth a visit.

Went with the family and we all very much enjoyed ourselves. They had plenty of rides that even little kids were able to ride. Park was pretty expansive and the sections divided like they were was pretty cool. Free drinks was an added cherry on the top. Very enjoyable experience and will definitely return.

In fact, we are huge Disney people, have had Universal season passes and Holiday World competes! If you are looking for a clean, safe, extremely well priced FUN family or adult fun then take the trek to HW. Free parking and drinks-great rides for all ages, a water park that DOMINATES...we can not get enough and can not wait for the season to open for 2019! Remember they operate on Central Time, and you can not bring in a cooler; however, there is places to exit and eat your lunch. You can get a next day pass if you need more time for fun!

Love coming to HW every summer. Have been a little disappointed lately in the lack of ride additions the past few years. Kringle Kafe was iconic and it’s a shame they remodeled it unrecognizable. This park has lost a lot of its hometown feel since the CEO passed several years ago. We miss Pat and the Koch family. But still a good park and hope it turns a corner and climbs up the ladder instead of down. Good luck HW!

Thank you for the review. We have some exciting plans in store for Holiday World and hope you'll continue to join us! We're still owned by the Kochs (4th generation!) and hope you'll discover the tributes to our past in our new Santa's Merry Marketplace.
