My Ideal Theme Park 8/27/2005

I first visited Holiday World (or Santa Claus Land as it was then known) with my family and grandparents back in the '70s and loved it then. Now that I have kids of my own, I have been privileged to visit three times again. And it's bigger and better than ever! From the time you enter the park, you notice how clean and well-maintained it is. From the beautifully-tended flower gardens everywhere to the omnipresent neatly-dressed employees sweeping the walkways, you'll find no litter or trash in this place. There are many rides, beginning with a special area for little kids (my 18 month old had several rides appropriate for her), with a small merry-go-round, ball pit, flying airplanes, etc. There are also intermediate-type rides, and then of course for the adults the Raven and the Legend roller coasters - both of which have been recognized as some of the best wooden roller coasters in the nation. Holiday World is much smaller than Disney World, or even a Six Flags/King's Island park. And with young children, I saw this as a plus. The park can easily be "done" in one day and we were able to stroll at a leisurely pace. In my opinion, it's just the right size for a family with children in the 2-7 age range. A neat perk is the free soft drink huts located throughout the park. It's wonderful to stop in for a cool drink whenever you need one, without worrying about shelling out yet more hard-earned vacation cash. more

Great family fun! 8/21/2005

Holiday World is located in Santa Claus, IN, about an hour west of Louisville, KY. There are two parks for the price of one: Holiday World and Splashin' Safari. This is by far the cleanest and friendliest theme park that I have ever been too. It rivals even Disney in these two areas. The price is very reasonable and includes FREE SODA and FREE SUNSCREEN! Holiday World is divided into a few themed areas decorated in different holiday decor. The rides are great fun and a family of four can buy a meal for less than $20. This is a great value and a great park. more

Time for Fun! 8/16/2005

My family loves Holiday World! We try to get there each year. It is close and convenient and has great rides. They usually try to add something new each year which we really enjoy. The park is always very clean and the lines are usually not bad, except maybe during peak times. more

Kid-Friendly Entertainment 8/9/2005

Water rides, clean grounds and free drinks - that's more than worth the price when you have hot kids to entertain on a summer day. Great for all ages, friendly staff, lots to choose from. more

Wonderful Entertainment! 8/9/2005

This is a great amusement park. They have stuff for the kids, and the parents! Lots of parking spaces and a tram to take you to the front gate. Prices aren't too bad (compared to others). It also has a water park! They even offer free soft drinks (Pepsi products) and free sunscreen while in Splashin Safari. It is by far the cleanest amusement park I have ever seen! They also offer a variety of shows and different shops. more

Holiday World & Splashin' Safari 8/3/2005

This is an excellent amusement park and water park. I would definitely recommend it to any age. The water rides are some of the best we've been on. The park is neat and clean and admission cost is reasonable. They usually offer some sort of discount coupons if you look for them. They also offer free suntan lotion and free pepsi all day long! more
