Because Santa says so!

And Holidog, too. And Kitty Claws. And all of our award-winning friendly Hosts and Hostesses.

Oh, yeah … and those top-ranked coasters and ginormous water park.

Santa likes lists and so do we, so:

Here are the Top 20 Reasons we think you should visit:

  1. Two parks – Holiday World Theme Park and Splashin’ Safari Water Park – in one.
  2. TIME magazine named The Voyage the #1 Wooden Roller Coaster in America.
  3. Free soft drinks. Just sayin’ …
  4. In 2013, USA Today proclaimed Splashin’ Safari to be the Best Water Park in the USA.
  5. The friendliest bunch of employees you’ll ever find – that’s why they’re called Hosts & Hostesses.
  6. Holiday World is the world’s first theme park (we opened, as Santa Claus Land, in 1946 – that’s nine years before Mr. Disney got started!).
  7. Voted the Cleanest Park in the World for more than a decade. We’re a bit fanatical.
  8. Fun shows – with singing, dancing, and diving. But not at the same time …
  9. Free parking.
  10. Yummy food, from pizza and burgers to Thanksgiving Dinner. Reasonably-priced, too!
  11. Mammoth and Wildebeest – the two longest water coasters on the planet.
  12. Santa Claus. Every day.
  13. Free inner tube usage. Free Wi-Fi, too.
  14. Special menus for those with food allergies.
  15. New for 2014: Mayflower swinging ship ride plus Friday Night Fireworks!
  16. We’ve received nearly a thousand positive TripAdvisor.com reviews.
  17. Free sunscreen. (You know you always leave yours at home on the kitchen counter!)
  18. Holidog hugs. Kitty Claws, too.
  19. We’re in Santa Claus, Indiana. We’ve got that whole Mayberry vibe going on here. You’ll feel safe and happy in a sweet, old-fashioned way.
  20. Your family deserves it!
