2018 Season Passes are here! We’ve started thinking about next season even though Happy Halloween Weekends haven’t kicked off yet.
As a coaster enthusiast who grew up several states away and didn’t get to visit Holiday World more than a day or two each season, I’ll be honest that I didn’t know a lot about Season Passes here at the park. When I was growing up, a Season Pass just got you into a park all year long. That’s it. But that’s not how the majority of our Season Passes work here at Holiday World. They offer so much more.
If you plan on spending more than a couple days with us next season, there are several reasons to consider a Season Pass. Let’s take a quick look at each type of pass we offer.
Platinum Season Pass
A Platinum Pass gets you the ultimate Holiday World experience. Visit all season long and kick off the fun early with our exclusive Platinum Passholder Preview Night. Want to save 20% on all your food and gift shop purchases? Here’s your ticket. Want the most flexible options for Bring A Friend Discount dates? This beats the other passes hands down. Let’s not forget the free souvenir cup, monthly 99-cent treat, and the option to visit during Happy Halloween Weekend in 2017 (when your pass is paid in full). It’s all included. Your pass has paid for itself in less than three visits but the benefits are good all season long.
If you pick up your Platinum Season Pass by September 15, you can also take advantage of our lowest priced Easy Pay option. The pass is yours for just seven monthly payments of $21. $20 for Guests under 54” and Seniors.
Best Perk: 2018 Platinum Passholders can join us for our Platinum Passholder Preview Night. You’ll get to enjoy several hours in the park with other Platinum Passholders on select rides and attractions!
Your next option to choose from is our Season Pass. You still get to visit all season long from opening weekend through the end of Happy Halloween Weekends. You save 10% on all your food and gift shop purchases, and can pick up discounted tickets for Rock the World!
Season Passes are also a part of our Easy Pay program. Purchase your Season Pass by September 15 and make just seven payments of $17. For Guests under 54” and Seniors, the Easy Pay price is $16 a month.
Best Perk: Season Passholders have the option to purchase a $25 Bring A Friend ticket on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and on Sundays during Happy Halloween Weekends!
Summer Fun Card
Our most frugal option is the Summer Fun Card. If you have a Fun Card, you can join us any Sunday through Friday between May 6 and Labor Day Monday. You’ll save $40 off the regular price when you purchase by September 15! Visit both parks all season long for the same price as two regularly-priced tickets.
Best Perk: You won’t miss out on most of our special events like our 4th of July Spectacular or our Friday Night Fireworks.
Now that we’ve done a brief overview, I wanted to go over a few of the questions that we’ve gotten about Season Passes lately. Hopefully this will help fill you in on all the details you need to know about purchasing or renewing your Season Pass.
Where do I get a Season Pass?
You can purchase your 2018 season pass on our website or at the front gate on your next visit.
What do I do after I buy my Season Pass?
Once you purchase your Season Pass, we’ll need to get it processed. We can do that at the Holiday World Season Pass Photo Room on your first visit after purchasing. We also have early processing hours in the spring.
If you’re renewing a 2017 season pass, we may be able to just put an “18” sticker on it. It’s that easy.
Can I upgrade my Season Pass?
You sure can! We can upgrade a Summer Fun Card to a Season Pass or a Season Pass to a Platinum Season Pass for just $30. Visit Guest Relations to make the upgrade.
Who Needs a Season Pass?
Children ages two and younger get into the park free. Everyone else needs a ticket or season pass to get into the park. Each Season Pass will be an individual Photo ID, so everyone will need their own.
What do I do if I lose my Season Pass?
Don’t worry! We’ve got all the information we need to get you a replacement for your lost or forgotten Season Pass. There is a replacement fee of $5 per Season Pass or Summer Fun Card. Stop by and see our Guest Relations team to get your replacement.
Is there anything else I should know?
If you’re like me and prefer to not carry much on you when you visit the park, your season pass can also store HoliCash. If you’re not familiar with it, HoliCash can be used as payment throughout Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. You can pick up tickets, food, merchandise, or it can be used for in-park services like locker rentals or at human-operated games. It’s one less thing to worry about.
Your Season Pass never stops working for you. It’s perfect if you want to spend an entire day with us, stop by for a few cycles on your favorite ride, or just to grab a slice of pizza in Kringle’s and get your photo taken with Holidog. You’ll quickly learn all about the park and figure out what works best.
We can’t wait for you to join us in 2018!

For Platinum Season Pass holders, can you get all 6 Bring A Friend discount tickets at the beginning of the season to use whenever, or do you have to purchase them on the day that you are using them?
For your Bring A Friend discount tickets, you’ll need to purchase them on the day they’ll be used.
Do you still have the easy payment options for season passes?
We still have Easy Pay, but it’s no longer available on 2019 Season Passes. Easy Pay is typically available when Season Passes go on sale in the beginning of September through mid-February.
Can I purchase summer fun passes at the gate when we visit next week? Are passes the same price at the gate as they are online?
Is it possible to purchase a family season pass for Holiday World ?
We are grandparents and wondered if there’s a grandpa reloads that includes us, our kids, spouses and grandkids ?
Also, are there discount for veterans ?
All of our Season Passes are processed for a single individual, but we do offer a Military discount on tickets. You can see more information on that here: https://www.holidayworld.com/ticket-options/pick-price-tickets/#military
Does a season pass cover 1 person or a whole family?
Our Season Passes are processed for an individual and have your photo printed on the back. So each member of the family would need a Pass.
Can I bring two friends on the same day with being a friend passes?
Yes, you can use up to all of your Discounted Bring A Friend tickets on the same day.
