Faster. Safer. A better experience for you!
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is going cashless in 2023 to provide faster service and increased security. All locations throughout the park will continue to accept most credit cards as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay. For Guests who normally bring cash, free cash-to-card kiosks will be available throughout both parks.
We’re sure you have some questions. And we’ll do our best to answer all of them below.
Going Cashless Questions

Moving to cashless operations is going to offer faster and more secure transactions around the park, and allow you to move through lines faster on the day of your visit!

- NEW in 2023: ReadyCARD, available through our cash-to-card kiosks
Guests may pay with their credit cards or with Apple Pay or Google Pay.
What if I only have cash?
Guests who only bring cash can add it to a card at one of the cash-to-card kiosks that will be located throughout the park. For a full list, see the following questions.
Where can I find kiosks to convert cash to a card?

You can load up to $500 per kiosk transaction. If you’d like to load more, you can simply repeat the process for a second card.
