Well, maybe not all that many close-ups, but if you've always wanted to get your sweet mug on a commercial or on the news, this may be your big chance.

We need volunteers to be extras next Friday, May 11.

As extras for the new Holiday World & Splashin' Safari TV commercials, you’ll be asked to try out our new Bakuli seven-story water slide and maybe even ride The Voyage and Turkey Whirl.


On Friday morning, you’ll also take part in the Media Preview being held for reporters from our area's newspapers, radio and TV stations.

We can’t promise to make you a star, but we will feed you and give you a free ticket as a token of our esteem.

The timing for this is 10:30 am to 5:30 pm CDT.

To sign up, please contact us no later than noon on Wednesday by sending us an email at (or call 812-937-5280 and ask to speak with Danielle or Patty).

We’ll answer your questions and will provide you with more information … such as: please wear a one-piece swimsuit that is modest in design; bring plenty of towels and warm cover-ups and a change of clothes, plus something to pass the time during down-time (there's always down-time). This is a first-come, first-served opportunity; adults and families are particularly welcome. (Sorry, children must be at least 42-inches-tall to take part.)

And before you ask…is Bakuli's water heated? You bet! We use solar heating and as long as the sun is shining, the water is warming up.
