Santa Claus - Holiday World & Splashin' Safari

452 E. Christmas Blvd

Holiday World & Splashin' Safari is a family-owned theme park and water park combo, located in Santa Claus, Indiana.

Home of Thunderbird - America's only launched wing roller coaster, Holiday World celebrates Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July with roller coasters, family rides, a huge water park, live entertainment, games, attractions - and Santa Claus, himself! Splashin' Safari, ranked one of the nation's Top Water Parks by TripAdvisor and USA Today, includes the two longest water coasters in the world, numerous family water slides, two wave pools, plus water activities for children. Both parks have been voted the World's Cleanest for more than a dozen years by the readers of Amusement Today magazine. In 2016, Guinness World Records certified Mammoth as the World's Longest Water Coaster and in 2013, TIME magazine named The Voyage the nation's #1 wooden roller coaster. Live entertainment includes musical shows, a country band, high dive show, and Santa's Storytime. Both parks offer guests free soft drinks, free parking, free inner tube usage, free sunscreen and free Wi-Fi.

New for 2017! Firecracker is a classic Calypso ride, one of only a handful still in operation in North America.

Holiday World is a great theme park! They have three world-class wooden coasters and an amazing steel coaster. They have a variety of rides for all ages and they offer free soft drinks all day everyday. Free parking and free sunscreen too! The water park is top-notch as well! We usually ride some coasters to start the day, then head to the waterpark for the bulk of the day, then return to the amusement park to finish the night. I'd recommend avoiding weekends and holidays if possible as the park is relatively small and fills up quickly. The folks who own this place really know how to run a quality business. Excited to see them grow!

Cleanest Park, Fun Rides, Great for kids, Summer Fun Cards are awesome for the summer season (best value within 100 miles). I have never had a bad experience at Holiday World. They have rides from the least extreme to the extreme. Their water park is second to none and they put an emphasis on their cleanliness. The free soft drinks (including Gatorade) are a treat to your pocketbook. My favorite little safety treat, is when they water the sidewalks on hot days to keep them cool. For families on a budget, there is a covered picnic area in the parking lot so that you can eat and reenter the park.

Really great amusement park! When we visited didn't get to ride the big coaster(s) because a storm came in but this is a very family friendly place and the unlimited drinks are imo the best part! Anytime you are thirsty you just go to a drink station and fill up your cup! Definitely a place worth visiting for some family fun.

Everyone was so friendly! I'd not visited since I was a child so we somehow missed an entire section& MUST go back soon. Love the free sunscreen& drinks. Very clean place. Amazing mixture of water fun and roller-coaster thrills! Also enjoyed a free show while we took a break from exploring, very talented entertainers.

What's not love about Holiday World?! There is so much fun to be had by the whole family! Both parks are super clean, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and the water park is the best! We also love the wide variety of games with great quality prizes, roller coasters, and of course endless free drinks and sunscreen! Can't wait to go again this year!
