Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus

4.6
#1 of 11 in Theme Parks in Indiana
The four sections at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari allow you to partake in amusement park rides, food, and music all themed around a different major holiday. The complex's unusual name comes from the inspiration of its host town, Santa Claus, Indiana. You can travel through areas dedicated to Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the Fourth of July as you progress through the park, regardless of the time of year. Thrill-seekers can indulge in the three classic wooden roller coasters, a signature attraction. Don't miss the site's water park, which offers water slides, wave pools, and what's claimed to be the world's longest water coaster rides.

  • Holiday World is an amazing place to bring your friends and children. There are awesome roller coaster rides and water rides. The food is really good and the people you meet there are great. The workers are always in a good mood and are glad to help whenever you need it. They are there to make sure your experience is the best you've ever had. It's almost like they become family, in that short period of time. The entire place is always so clean and neat. I really enjoy riding the thunderbird whenever I go there.
  • One of the greatest theme parks in the world. Hidden away in the adorable town of Santa Claus, Indiana is the home to three of the greatest wooden roller coasters ever built and one of the best water parks ever made. The slides are all amazing, but the water coasters Wildebeest and Mammoth are second to none. The Voyage, while it may be a bit bumpy in the finale, is undoubtedly the greatest wooden coaster in the world. On top of all of that, the staff is some of the friendliest in the industry, and there are free drinks and sunscreen provided to all guests. That’s right completely free and easily accessible throughout the park. A must visit for families or coaster enthusiasts!!
  • We LOVE Holiday World! We come at least once every summer. Sometimes twice. The park can tend to be a bit crowded, especially in the later summer months when it's really really hot. But that's to be expected. Their website is really good about informing you of the higher volume months. And they do keep expanding. So i imagine that one day it wont feel as packed because every year they add more and more. One price for admission to both parks and free drinks! Also discounts on two day tickets. We drive 2 1/2 hours and it is worth every mile of the drive. Such a nice, clean and fun park. We love the Christmas theme the most. It even have things for the little little kids, which most theme parks don't. The staff is friendly, The food is so good, and did i mention that the park is CLEAN!? This will be a tradition for years to come. It's fantastic. Worth every penny. We haven't been disappointed yet. And we've been coming yearly for about 15 years now. If you get a chance to stop by this little hidden gem, GO. You won't regret it.
  • Was so worth the money and definitely something I would do again. Amazing service. They have these Oasis things about every other ride where you get free drinks to cool off. Had a spot for kids to play in and the rides are super cool. The only thing that kinda sucked was that this one ride you had to wait an hour! Other than that I loved it!
  • Can't say enough. We love this place. Everyone so nice. Very clean. A great family fun place. Free parking, sunscreen and soda...What!!? Wife fell in love with Pepsi Oasis. Food was reasonable and good. Go there....
