About: Holiday World celebrates the holidays of Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the 4th of July with rides, live entertainment and other attractions. The park has been owned and operated by the Koch family of Santa Claus since opening as Santa Claus Land in 1946. In addition to its collection of world-class wooden coasters, Holiday World is notable for offering free parking and free Pepsi soft drinks throughout the park.
Holiday World also includes a highly acclaimed water park, Splashin' Safari, that visitors can enjoy at no extra charge. Splashin' Safari includes raft slides, two wave pools, two lazy rivers, a variety of water slides, multiple water attractions for children, and Wildebeest, the world's longest water coaster (added in 2010).
It's also important to note that Holiday World is in the Central Time Zone, one hour behind most of the rest of Indiana.
