Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus

#1 of 18 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.

  • I've been going here every year since I was a kid and always have a great time. Great place for the family. Prices aren't bad either. Food is always good at the restaurants and rides are always up and running. Maintenance does a great job at keeping the park clean and rides are working properly. Plus free drink stands and sunblock around every corner.
  • I grew up visiting Holiday World frequently and I still enjoy going there! It's the perfect sized theme park and an excellent water park - easily the best in the area! Great ticket deals with lots of freebies (like sunscreen) and the staff is out of this world with how friendly and helpful they are. I can't wait to visit again soon and take my own child to visit - continuing the family tradition ๐Ÿ˜Š
