Apply Now And You Could Be Part of our HoliBlogger Program in 2024!

Are you an online storyteller or content creator? Do you love spending time with your family at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari? Then we could be the perfect match!

Our fans enjoyed our HoliBlogger content so much, that we’re bringing in a new class for 2024.

We’ll partner with bloggers, vloggers, influencers, and online community builders to tell stories about our parks here in Santa Claus, Indiana. We’d love for you to apply if you think you’re the perfect contributor!

What HoliBloggers would contribute:

Stories about traveling to see us, your time in the park, traditions that you have when visiting, tips to make the most of your day, and so much more. We want you to stay true to the voice that you have online and help us tell stories about Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. To see a list of topics already covered by our HoliBloggers, click here.

If you’re chosen to join the HoliBloggers, you’ll write 5 blog posts during your time in the partnership. The program will last one calendar year, from May 1, 2024 to April 30, 2025.

Plus, here are the perks we’ll offer to assist with your storytelling:

  • Platinum Season Passes (and accompanying perks) for all immediate family members.
  • An All-Season Digital Photo Pass.
  • 10 Tickets to be used for giveaways – a pair of tickets given away in each of five blog posts.
  • Behind-the-scenes access to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, including staff interviews, photo opportunities, or getting information before it is made public, when applicable and relevant to your blog topics.
  • Exclusive access to a private HoliBlogger Facebook Group.
  • Your content will be shared with our social media audience and in email newsletters. You’ll be able to customize several options in ticket giveaways to link to your social media profiles and each blog post will end with your author bio and link to your blog.

Additional Opportunities

Partner with Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph

Lake Rudolph is a two-time National RV Park of the Year and located right next door to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. The resort offers incredible amenities and activities, including Santa’s SplashDown WaterPark, Blitzen Bay pool, miniature golf, a snack bar, dog park, and sports courts. HoliBloggers can take advantage of two nights in one of Lake Rudolph’s cottages and will include details about that visit in a blog post. Early season visits through mid-June preferred; Sunday to Thursday reservations have the best availability.

Partner with the Spencer County Visitors Bureau in Santa Claus, Indiana

The local Visitors Bureau will work with you to help you explore and experience things to do throughout the area and possibly provide lodging for your stay. Deliverables for this partnership include varied social media content (posts and stories) highlighting your time visiting the area, local lodging, and possibly a guest blog post for their blog. Details will be finalized with the Visitors Bureau while planning your trip. Visits preferred in May and early June.

Partner with the Visit Owensboro Team in Owensboro, Kentucky

Needing overnight accommodations for your trip to Holiday World? Partner with one of the cutest riverfront cities in the United States just 30 minutes from the park in Owensboro, Kentucky. Don’t let the fun stop when you leave the park. The team at Visit Owensboro will provide family-friendly attraction tickets and possible overnight riverfront accommodations for your family in exchange for your social media content about why Owensboro is a great place to stay when you take your family to Holiday World.

What Makes Your Voice Unique

We want to know what qualities would help your voice stand out and any early ideas you have on topics to write about. Not all questions are required, but the more we know about you, the easier it is to judge your fit as a HoliBlogger. We encourage you to include anything that you think is relevant or important.
To see the topics that our HoliBloggers covered for inspiration and to give you an idea of how they chose topics relevant to their personal brands, visit HoliBlogger Central.

Tip from the Communications & Marketing Teams: Specific topics are much easier to consider than generalized topics. (Dietary Restrictions Won't Stop You From Visiting Holiday World vs. Food at Holiday World, or Everything You Need to Know About Visiting Holiday World with A Toddler vs. Visiting with Kids)
Both long-time and first-time visitors welcome to apply.
Think of this as pitching a few blog post titles. While all of the information on this application is relevant, these topics are the most important and influential answer in determining your fit as a HoliBlogger.
This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
