Theme Park Uses Drones to Announce... a Bigger Drone Show

October 23, 2022, 1:21 PM · Holiday World and Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana had promised a 2023 announcement during its Halloween in the Sky drone show at the park last night. So what did it turn out to be?

It's more drones. The park revealed that its Holidays in the Sky drone show would return in 2023, adding another 100 drones. That brings the show up to 400 drones in the sky above the park, allowing for new and more intricate animations.

"Not only do 100 additional drones increase the scale of these scenes, but the complexity of the stories we’re going to be able to share," Lauren Crosby, Director of Entertainment and Fourth-Generation Owner of Holiday World, said. "It's going to be a challenge to top the 2022 Holidays in the Sky Drone show, but I know our team is up to the task."

Holidays in the Sky will run each night from June 17 through July 30, 2023. The Halloween in the Sky show, with the 2023 announcement, will repeat this Saturday, October 29.
