Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is a family theme park and water park combo located in the nearby town of Santa Claus.
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!
Continuing 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 rides – from mild to wild, live entertainment, games 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.
Splashin’ Safari, named the Best Waterpark in the nation by USA Today, includes the two longest water coasters in the world – Mammoth and Wildebeest, numerous family raft slides and water slides, two wave pools, plus water activities for children.
Consumers Digest magazine has twice named Holiday World the Nation’s Top Value Park: Both parks offer guests free soft drinks, free parking, free inner tube usage, free sunscreen and free Wi-Fi. And on Fridays in June and July, celebrate the start of the weekend with Friday Night Fireworks!
Family-owned and -operated since it opened in 1946 as Santa Claus Land, Holiday World continues to focus on family fun, with special attention to friendliness and cleanliness. In fact, Holiday World has been voted the Cleanest Park on the Planet for more than a decade by the readers of Amusement Today magazine.
