Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari is one of the most well known and highly regarded combination theme and water parks in the nation. It sits in the city of Santa Claus, in southern Indiana, an estimated three-hour drive from Indianapolis.
A new ride is added just about every year. You’ll enjoy Hyena Falls, four in-the-dark water slides each with a different riding experience or Kitty’s Tea Party, a classic teacup ride.
Paula Werne, Director of Communications, says Holiday World is a great value for the family. She adds, “We offer two parks (Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari) for one price, with free soft drinks, free parking, free sunscreen and more.”
This “G-rated” park focuses on maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere by upholding behavior and dress standards. The park has been recognized for its commitment to cleanliness and employee friendliness. Amusement Today awarded the park “friendliest in the world” for a dozen years.
Werne says, “Mayberry may have a fictional locale, but Santa Claus, Indiana, isn’t.”
