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.
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.
Holiday World will open for the season on June 17. You can see our full calendar online now. In addition, we’ll open early for Passholders.
- Sunday, June 14 Holiday World will be open for Platinum Season Passholders
- Monday, June 15 Holiday World will be open for Platinum Season Passholders and Season Passholders
- Tuesday, June 16: Holiday World will be open for Platinum Season Passholders, Season Passholders, and Summer Fun Card holders.
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.
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.
Park Map & Show Guide
Our 2020 Park Map and all showtimes for each operating day are available online at www.HolidayWorld.com/Today

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 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.
Food & Snacks
Some of our restaurants and snack locations that you’re familiar with will look and operate a little differently this season.
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, 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.
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
We plan to have all our shows up and running on or before July 4. We’re trying to get everything going as fast as we can, but it takes a lot of time and preparation to make our shows.
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
Beginning around July 4, we’ll be offering a new All-Day and All-Season Digital Photo Pass that will be available for purchase at Holiday World Services and Splashin’ Safari Services.
