For visits beginning September 19
Please note that a limited number of attractions are closed for the rest of the season. To see a full list, click here.
Our water attractions may close in chilly weather for the safety of our Guests and Team Members. Each attraction has a specific minimum operating temperature. We watch carefully and try to open attractions as temperatures warm up throughout the day.
In accordance with Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-37, Guests will be required to wear face coverings as they enter the gates, and in any indoor spaces in the park including roller coaster stations, gift shops, indoor restaurants, Pepsi Oases, and restroom buildings. Guests will not be required to wear face coverings on any water rides, while eating or drinking, or in the midways, but are expected to maintain 6-foot social distancing from other travel parties at all times. In accordance with guidance from Indiana, children 7 and under will not need to wear coverings in the park (though they are strongly recommended for children ages 2-7) and exceptions will be made for those with medical conditions.
Information for your upcoming visit.
We are continuing to sell a limited number of tickets per day so we can maintain 50% capacity, and working closely with our local health department on guidance. This will allow us to safely operate Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari while staying in compliance with all federal, state, and local guidelines.

Tickets & Season Passes
This season, tickets are only available for purchase online and will be date-specific. These tickets are only valid on the day listed. Due to attendance caps, if you visit on a day not listed on your ticket, you may not be able to enter Holiday World. If you are feeling ill, or feel you may have been exposed to COVID-19 around the date of your visit, please call our Call Center and they will help you pick a new date to visit.
Season Passes are still available, and they come loaded with additional perks this season. Guests who visit with Season Passes will not be required to make a reservation before visiting. 2020 Season Passes that were not used this year will be automatically rolled over to 2021 free of charge.
Arrival & Bag Check
This season, both The Raven and The Legend parking lots will be in use to allow guests to properly social distance when you arrive at the park.
You may be asked to wait in your car for a few additional minutes depending on how many guests are in our Entrance plaza going through Bag Check or queuing to enter the park. You can keep your group safe by utilizing the ground markings to help stay six feet from the group in front of you.
Please note: trams will not be in use this season to assist with social distancing but Guests can still be dropped off in The Raven lot near the Bag Checkpoint.
When you arrive at Bag Check, a line attendant will direct you to the next open line. Your group will proceed through our metal detectors with your bag–we’ll only check your bag if we detect metal–and into the ticket scanning line.
If you do not have a face covering at Bag Check, we will send you to Guest Relations to purchase one. We expect to have pre-packaged masks available for $1.
Entering the Park
Once you’ve moved past Bag Check, you’ll be able to enter a queue to make your way toward the park entrance.
If you need to visit Guest Relations for anything, you’ll do that before moving into the line to enter the park.
Similar to Bag Check, the line you enter will have ground markings to help you maintain social distancing from other groups. Once you reach the end of this queue, a line attendant will direct you to a ticket taker at our Front Gate.
You will be required to have a face covering when you enter the gates.
Park Map & Show Guide
Our 2020 Park Map and all showtimes for each operating day are available online at www.HolidayWorld.com/Today
Plus, you can get information on our Daily Deals and Trip Tips.
Physical copies of our park maps are still available at any of our gift shops, near the registers. If you can’t find one, just ask an employee and they’ll be happy to help.

Hand Sanitizing Stations
This season we’ll have nearly 90 Hand “Santatizer” stations located around both parks.
You’ll spot these colorful stations located near ride exits, food locations, and gift shops.
Just look for the colorful red Santa suits.
inLine Reservation System
For 2020, we’re moving to a virtual queuing system for all Guests called inLine Reservation System.
You’ll be able to use this reservation system to virtually wait in line for our larger dry park attractions without having to stand in a queue the entire time. This will allow more time for you to spend with your group. You’ll be able to make your reservation right from your phone.
You’ll just register your account, reserve your spot in line, and then ride!
There are also options for Guests who don’t have or choose not to use their phone for reservations.
For a more in-depth look at inLine, click here.
Some of our attractions have seats blocked off for social distancing purposes, while others will be loaded according to travel parties. Our coasters will be loaded by travel parties, so please be sure to tell the Team Member in the station that you’re visiting together.
Our single rider lines at our water coasters have been removed this year to help keep travel parties distanced from one another.
Food & Snacks
Some of our restaurants and snack locations that you’re familiar with will look and operate a little differently this season.
Face coverings will be required inside Santa’s Merry Marketplace, Plymouth Rock Cafe, Alamo, and Wildebeestro, except when Guests are dining indoors.
Tables have been spaced out to allow Guests to enjoy meals with their families while still being a safe distance from other groups.
There are also some smaller changes, like automatic utensil dispensers and a Team Member will hand you any condiments you might need.
Sit-down restaurant locations such as Santa’s Merry Marketplace and Plymouth Rock Café will have lines outside of the restaurant to wait in before you get in the building along with changes to the way you order and receive food.
All restaurant locations accept HoliCash as a payment method. In addition, they accept Apple and Android Pay, eliminating the need to use a physical credit card if desired.

Free Unlimited Soft Drinks
Don’t worry, our free unlimited soft drinks aren’t going anywhere.
We ask that you go one at a time into the station, wear a face covering for indoor Pepsi Oasis locations, and maintain social distance while waiting, and follow the ground markings for “In” and “Out.” Oh, and please get a new cup each time. Reusable cups will need to be refilled with our disposable cups.
If you need to visit First Aid this season, we’ll be screening Guests outside of the building and only allowing one visitor with any Guest who enters the building.
Guests will be required to wear a face covering to enter the building.
We’ve also spaced out the rocking chairs in the Mother’s Room for everyone’s safety and comfort, and we’ll sanitize the surfaces between uses.
Shows & Entertainment
Theater seating for shows in the park will be similar to waiting in lines for our attractions. We’ll have decals marking appropriate social distancing spacing to help keep you safe while you take in a show.
We’re still finding ways for Holidog & Friends to be socially distant, but you can always count on a show featuring the furry and loveable group!
Digital Photo Pass
New for 2020! We now offer an All-Day and All-Season Digital Photo Pass that will be available for purchase. Read more about these new Passes here.
