When our friends at State Tourism asked if a group of students from Ball State University could spend a day with us shooting a video, it sounded like a pretty good idea.

Boy, were we ever wrong…

…it was a great idea!

(Faked you out, there, didn’t I?)

Here’s the result of their effort, using very cool "tift shift" photography:

    I recently visited the park with 3 of my friends.  One friend is handicapped, uses an electric scooter, has a trach and oxygen. Just wanted someone to know that the park is the best around. There wasnt any shop or game that she couldnt get to. Everyone was very friendly and offered assistance frequently. She cant drink anything carbonated but loves to chew on ice and drink ice water both were in abundance. I won our tickets from a giveaway at washington county fair, the leader newspaper office. At first i was unsure about going but after our visit we will definatly be back.  The two teenagers that were with me had a blast. Everyone around looked happy.  The atmosphere was awesome. The park was very clean. Basically i cant say enough good things about the park. Would highly recommend it to anyone around.  This park is definatly work the money. Free drinks, free sunscreen, free parking….u just cant beat that. We will be back next year , cant wait for the new ride.  Thanks for all your hard work. It doesnt go unnoticed.                                   Sheila Campbell  Scottsburg Indiana

    I know of five teens who are carpooling to Holiday this year and I am wondering why? These kids will have to pay the gas so they are able to go to work. The busses come right past the Rockport exit could it not stop at the hotel or even stop at the Lincon Center and pick them up. It would be so much easier for all of them and their rides if they had a bus stop in or closer to Rockport.

    Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari is the #1 place for family fun! NOBODY can beat the free parking, free sunscreen, the awesome rides and who doesn’t love the Pepsi Oasis?!! God willing we’ll be there over Fathers Day weekend again this year!

    Okay,well my Dad and I are both going together,and it’s just us. Im really not sure if I want to go on a 2 day trip with just him. I mean, I love him and all, but I feel we won’t have fun together. I wanted to bring a friend, but she couldn’t go. So I have a question—Is it fun without a friend,with just your parents?

    We first discovered Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari four years ago. We have been back every year since. Absolutely love it. I also like the new Holicash on the bracelet. I would love to see the bracelet also unlock the lockers. It would be great to be completely hands free. You had a great idea for the money now if there was one to be keyless also. Great idea when you spend all day at the water park.

    Hello Holiday World!
    I came to your site to check out what you have for my Grandbabies coming home from Germany for the first time in 4 years!! I told their Mommy, PaPaw and I would take them to your park when they come home and sent them the link. Needless to say, they are VERY EXCITED!! There are 3 boys, ages 5, 4, and 2 yrs.
    I watched the video, which was GREAT and also read the story from one of the students which I found to be very useful because you see, I too am disabled and have a few special needs. Having said all this…..We are ALL really looking forward to coming to Holiday World and Splashin Safari!! Thanks to all for some great information for people like us that have never been there!
    See ya soon! Mary Ann – Louisville, KY

    Hi, I am going to holiday world tomorrow and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to space out the day and get to all the fun and daring things. I would also like some tips on the BEST rides to try. BTW i am all about some water rides and roller coasters so if anyone can give me some tips i would appreciate it! Thx

    We’re thinking of bringing our 12 year old son there, but yet I’m disabled, & my husband isn’t able to walk much either. So being said we’d not really be able to walk much or ride much maybe a few water rides. Would our son & us still have a good time?????

    We recently visited from Florida. The place is great. We love the new updates to the toddler water area since we visited last. All of the kids, babies to teenagers love to visit. All of these parks in Florida could learn a few things from visiting Holiday World. See you again next year.
