Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is a family theme park and water park combo located in the nearby town of Santa Claus. Holiday World celebrates Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July with rides – from mild to wild, live entertainment, games and attractions.
Newest Ride Available is the Cheetah Chase! Who will be the fastest? Race against your family and friends on Cheetah Chase: the world’s first launched water coaster!Holiday World’s third water coaster will feature two ProSlide RocketBLAST®-powered racing slides totaling more than 1700 feet of track. On Cheetah Chase, riders will experience a water-powered flat launch before racing against their families toward the finish line.
New in 2015 was the 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.
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!
