By Paula @ Holiday World

Thank you to everyone who entered (and voted) during the month of August. Here are our three winners – chosen at random – who each receive a pair of one-day tickets:

  • Angel W., Vergennes, Illinois
  • Lisa L., Fishers, Indiana
  • Krissie W., Bowling Green, Kentucky

When we announced the creation of Splashin’ Safari back in 1992, we never dreamed we would end up with one of the world’s largest water parks. Never!

I remember writing the news release: We would open the water park in 1993 but it would take us five years and $3 million to reach the size we wanted.

Ha! Were we ever wrong!

USA Today says Splashin’ Safari is one of the nation’s top water parks – in fact, we were named #1 two years ago.

Would you like to help us keep the title?

All it takes is two clicks (here) to vote. Daily.

But that’s not all! USA Today is also conducting a poll for the Best Water Slide. And we have two contenders in that category.

Our two water coasters.

Which do you love best?


Wildebeest Family

… or Mammoth?

Tough decision, we know. But please vote! (We won’t ask who your favorite child is, either.)

And finally, our Safari Sam’s SplashLand is also nominated – in the Best Water Park Kids’ Area category.

Asking you to vote in three categories (did we mention you can vote daily?) is a lot, we know. And we are grateful for your support.

As a thank-you, we’ll choose three winners at random at the end of the month. Each winner will receive two one-day tickets. How do you enter*? Just post a comment here on this HoliBlog post each time you vote. We’ll trust that you voted – and of course, we know there are lots of great water parks and rides out there: we encourage you to vote as your conscience dictates.

    I wish we could get a First Place in all three categories. I’m doing my part by voting every day.

    I could see us going every weekend .and possibly taking a few days to camp out and take a mini vacay during the week .I work full time ,I’m in college every night of the week .It would be a great way to unwind with family on the weekends !

    I guess that is the end of the voting for me. Hope a lot of people get their votes in today. Holiday World deserves to be #1 in all three categories.
