Sixty-seven years ago today, Louis J. Koch opened a little park he called Santa Claus Land.

All these years later and his idea for a place for families to enjoy time together continues to thrive.

In fact, this week USA Today named our Splashin’ Safari the Best Water Park in the Nation. How about that!

Let’s take a look back for now, though, at our early days as Santa Claus Land:

Santa Claus Land was renamed in 1984, and we’ve been Holiday World ever since (adding Splashin’ Safari in 1993).

It’s been a wonderful ride these 67 years – hang on tight for more fun in the next 67!
