The popular website Oprah.com just released its list of “Wacky Family Attractions” in a feature designed to encourage families to vacation closer to home this year “when time and money are in short supply.” Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is one of the eight family attractions recommended in the list.

“If Oprah wants to call us ‘wacky,’ we don’t mind a bit,” says the parks’ president, Will Koch. “Come to think of it, it is a little wacky for a theme park to play Jingle Bells in the middle of July!”

The Oprah.com article includes a photo of Santa Claus in his summer garb along with a brief history of the park and description of the variety of rides-and holidays-featured at the world’s first theme park. Other parks included in the feature are Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky and Legoland in California.

Oprah.com is one of the 2,000 most-visited websites on the Internet.
