Owner description: 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.

Having been to a good sized handful of amusement parks I can honestly say that in my opinion there is none better. They have a great waterpark, free drinks, free sunscreen, two of the highest ranking roller coaster in the US.. If you do happen to see any trash you are also seeing someone on staff cleaning it up....thats how clean it is.
The whole atmosphere is exciting. I especially recomment this for families with children because there are several areas especially for them.

Holiday World is one of the cleanest and well maintained amusument and water parks that we have been to. The camping area at Rudolph is wonderful you can even rent a RV if you do not have camping equipment, all you need is your bedding and you are set. They have all kind of things for kids to do. They have a shuttle to the park so you can come and go to the park as you wish. We go at least once a year and everyone that goes with us goes back again.
