Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus

(1,900+ reviews on the web)
Water Park Theme Park
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. A visit to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Santa Claus holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • Would love to see the park stay open later only reason for the four star rating. 5 stars for the water park. Definitely enjoyed the free drinks. Sunscreen could be a little bit better protection. The concrete isn't the greatest to walk on in some area of the water park. Take flip flops, sandals, or water shoes with you everywhere. Food prices are typical for normal theme parks nothing to drastic. Will definitely be back!
  • Great place to take the family for a day. They also have a Santa clause inn where people can stay and come back. They have free drinks and free sunscreen. The service is superb and everyone is very nice. One time when I family went their and it started to rain, the customer service people gave us free tickets to come back. They also give you a birthday pin if you tell them it's your birthday and show ID. The rides are nice and the park is clean. They have a nice assortment of rides for all ages. Only downside is they don't have that many roller coasters.
  • The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because I would like to see the park open later! As a. child riding rides in the dark with all the lights lite up was the best thing ever! I think 9 is the latest y'all stay open 😐. Be cool if at least one day a week y'all stayed open till 10 or 11!!! The rest I give an A+!! I've bought 3-4 season passes a year for the last 5 years and that will not change but just making a suggestion on staying open a little later!! Thank you for an awesome place to go and bring the kids that is very affordable!!!
  • I took my parents and my son today. My mom is new to having portable oxygen 24/7 and we are learning her limits on different activities. Once we got to splashing safari, she needed an electric cart. Guest services on that side wasn't able to get us one. They were short staffed so I need to walk all the way to the main entrance to rent one. (Not a big deal but I had my son w me who has back and leg problems AND we had just arrived at 3pm and wanted to be able to experience the water park)I went into the first aid office and explained my situation to Matt the security guard. He assisted us by driving me and my son to the main entrance so I was able to rent my mom the scooter she needed to truly be able to enjoy the rest of our day. Matt went over and beyond for us today and I'm greatly appreciative as we were able to roll on through the water park without anymore delays. THANK YOU MATT! It meant a lot to us all for someone to be kind and compassionate with our needs.
  • This place is great. I just wish they had more roller coasters (only reason for 4 stars). The water park is amazing though. Also so awesome to have free drinks, free parking and free sunscreen. Everyone was very friendly and seemed like they liked their job which makes it a much better experience.
