Visitor Tips and News About Holiday World
This Santa statue is just inside the entrance to Holiday World, and people line up to have their photo taken.[Laura & Mary, 08/17/2012]
Holiday World sprang from a town named Santa Claus. They haven't forgotten their founder.
Started out as Santa Claus Land, (you can still get your picture on Santa's lap even in the middle of summer) but has changed with the times. Nice amusement park with sections designed around various holiday themes (July 4th, Halloween, Christmas, etc). Includes a separate section of rides for kids under 42" tall and award-winning roller coasters. It has an excellent water park with slides, river float, rapids, and a wave pool. A smaller amusement park, but staff is friendlier and lines are smaller than most places.[Yvonne Bertke, 03/28/2002]
