Holiday World: Fast Track to Family Fun

Did you know that the theme park was invented in Indiana? And that the #1 Wooden Roller Coaster in the nation is in Indiana – plus the world’s longest Water Coaster? And – new this year – Indiana is home to the nation’s First Launched Wing Roller Coaster!

All of these “firsts” are rolled into one special place—Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. Located in the charming hamlet of Santa Claus in southern Indiana, this theme park/water park combo offers families a getaway with all sorts of perks. Did you ever think a theme park would give away soft drinks? And not charge for parking – or sunscreen – or the use of inner tubes in the water park? No wonder Consumers Digest magazine twice named Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari the Nation’s Top Value Park. Fridays in June and July, we even invite you to celebrate the start of the weekend with us during Friday Night Fireworks!

New for 2015 is Thunderbird – the nation’s first launched wing roller coaster!

Thunderbird launches riders from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. Then multiple loops, rolls, twists and turns begin, including a 14-story Immelmann loop, zero-g roll, barrel roll and the tallest vertical loop on any wing coaster!

The MammothContinuing Holiday World’s tradition of sending roller coasters through thickly wooded and hilly terrain, Thunderbird steel roller coaster at first soars and loops high in the air and then hugs the ground, surprising riders with rapid-fire “near misses” such as a fly-through barn, other rides and trees.

Holiday World celebrates Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July with themed rides – from mild to wild – live entertainment, games, yummy treats, and attractions. In 2013, TIME magazine named Holiday World’s Voyage the nation’s #1 wooden roller coaster. The Voyage is part of a trio of wooden roller coasters at Holiday World known the world over for their thrill – and fun – factor. Themed family rides also include HallowSwings, Gobbler Getaway, Rudolph’s Round-Up, and Star Spangled Carousel.

Splashin’ Safari, named the Best Waterpark in the nation by USA Today, includes the two longest water coasters in the world – Mammoth and Wildebeest – loads of family raft slides and water slides, two wave pools, plus giggle-inducing water activities for children. Both parks have been named the Cleanest Park on the Planet and one of the Friendliest, too, for more than a decade by the readers of Amusement Today magazine.
