“Families won’t go home broke”

My family and I would just like to take a minute to tell you about our visit on August 7, 2008. We visited with our 2 year old son, and we really had a great day in your park.

First of all, your park is kept exceptionally clean and neat. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food prices don’t break your budget. It’s nice to see that the park management cares about family and fun, without having you go home broke at the end of the day. The complimentary soft drinks are also a very nice touch.

Keep up the good work, my wife, son, and I look forward to returning to your park in 2009, we really had a great time.

Thanks extended to supervisor and lifeguard

We were in your parks on Friday, August 1st. I just wanted to let you know that I fully understand why your staff was voted so helpful.

My family had chosen to take our family vacation in Holiday World/Splashin’ Safari this year. Our family consisted of my husband, myself, our 2 daughters (12 and 5), my parents, my brother, and my nephew(2).

About halfway through our time in Splashin’ Safari, my mother asked if I had seen my youngest daughter. I told her I thought she had her. She proceeded to tell me that my daughter had asked where I was and came to find me. I had not seen her. My mom, my husband, and my brother all split up to find her. I stayed where I was.

A lifeguard passed by me with a radio. I stopped her and asked if she could help me. She immediately called Lost Parents and they had not seen her. She sent her description out to all over her radio and then got a supervisor to speak to me.

While I was giving her the information that she needed, my husband approached and said that my older daughter and my dad were on the Watubee and that perhaps my younger daughter had followed without telling us.

The supervisor radioed someone to go through the line on the Watubee. That is where she was. She was with my dad and my older daughter.

In the fear of my daughter being lost, I unfortunately missed the names of the lifeguard and the supervisor who helped me that day. I know this letter is quite long, but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the friendliness and the helpfulness that was shown to us that day.

We will continue to visit your park when we get the chance.

“Don’t change anything”

I just wanted to let you know that we had a super experience at your park!!

We would like to compliment and thank you for the free drinks, free sunscreen, affordable food prices, clean park, smoke free atmosphere, etc. I could go on and on.

We were there on Monday, July 28th, and I didn’t worry about sunburn or heat exhaustion with the constant reminders of the sunscreen stations and drink oases. What a relief!!

We live in Northern IN, but we plan to make it a yearly destination.

My girls 3 and 5 were exhausted and totally entertained after a day there.

We are telling all of our friends Holiday World is a great family destination and worth the drive.

We plan to return for two days next year and the girls are looking forward to being ‘taller’ so they can ride bigger rides.

Please don’t change anything!!

Dollywood vs. Holiday World

A few weeks ago we went on a family vacation to the Smoky Mountains. During our stay there we went to Dollywood. The cost for our family of 5 was $320 (our 3 yr old was free-included in the 5). This cost was for 2 days and the third was “free”. I wanted to share our experience with you.

The rides were very disappointing, only one was worth the time, they had very little for our 3 year old and the park was not very clean at all. The water park also was not that exciting. For the price we paid, we went 2 days and didn’t even bother to go back the third day. We all agreed that Holiday World was the best place to go.

Although we only get to Holiday World once a year, I would never spend that kind of money to go to another park. Holiday World is still the best in our opinion and we wanted to let you know that.

And I also wanted to let you know that Dollywood had “free” tap water for their guest, and you had to pay for sunscreen.

Thank you for having such a great park!
