Overview
More
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are a family-owned theme park and water park combo located in Santa Claus, Indiana. Home of Thunderbird - America’s only launched wing roller coaster, Holiday World celebrates Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July with roller coasters, family rides, a huge water park, live entertainment, games, attractions - and Santa Claus, himself! Splashin’ Safari, ranked one of the nation’s Top Water Parks by TripAdvisor and USA Today, includes the two longest water coasters in the world, numerous family water slides, two wave pools, plus water activities for children. Both parks have been voted the World's Cleanest for more than a dozen years by the readers of Amusement Today magazine. In 2016, Guinness World Records certified Mammoth as the World's Longest Water Coaster and in 2013, TIME magazine named The Voyage the nation’s #1 wooden roller coaster. Live entertainment includes musical shows, a country band, high dive show, and Santa’s Storytime. Both parks offer guests free soft drinks, free parking, free inner tube usage, free sunscreen and free Wi-Fi. New for 2017! Firecracker is a classic Calypso ride, one of only a handful still in operation in North America.

T be honest it was very hot, unexpectedly, when we were there. It seemed like the lines were long for off season. The coasters were good. The food was meh, and long lines for that also. Perhaps better when water park open to cool off.

The nice, no, very nice, staff at Holiday World could be their strongest characteristic. But, the roller coasters would have to take the top spot. Amazing. The water park is fantastic, too. However, they could staff it a bit more aggressively to keep the lines...More

We don't expect exceptionally large crowds, but typically Sundays are the busiest day of the holiday weekend.
