Does anyone else remember when the town of Santa Claus got its first traffic light?
That was quite a day, back in August of 2008.
We’re feeling a bit uptown once again
… as we introduce our new Tesla Destination Charging Station!
Here’s some information, which is also available on our Rules & Services page:
A Destination Charging Station for Tesla and other Electric Vehicles is now available in the Legend Parking Lot at Holiday World:
- 8 dedicated parking spaces for Tesla charging
- 4 of those dedicated parking spaces are also equipped with 110V receptacles for other EV charging (please bring your own charging cable)
- Available free to Holiday World visitors on a first-come basis during regular park hours
- Please alert a parking attendant of your intent to use the charging station once inside the Legend Lot
Please post any questions you might have below. We’ll be sure to get you answers!
Meanwhile, here’s a photo from another angle, in case you need a little help getting your bearings.
I won’t have my Tesla until summer of 2019. With the release of thousands of these this calendar year, will you be adding additional destination chargers for 2019? Thank you for your insight into the electric car future. ?
We’re looking forward to seeing how often the chargers are used this season, and will plan for the future with that in mind. Thank you!
Thanks for thinking of those of us with ev cars.
You’re quite welcome!
Family friendly and safe park for all ages
Thank you for this awesome convience feature! We were able to drive up from southern TN and charge while enjoying the park and drive home same day. Can’t wait to visit again.
Thank you for adding these! I live outside Nashville, and now we can make it a day trip to Holiday World. I grew up in Owensboro and I love Holiday World, but we haven’t been able to come. Now we can!
When my family comes, it’s typically on a slower day where the Raven parking lot is not even close to being full and I see the Legend lot has no cars. Are we still able to park over in the Legend lot to use the EV charging options, or is that lot closed on slow days?
Yes, the Legend Lot is open whenever the park is open.
Can’t wait to visit next week! This a great perk for us Tesla owners! Thank you!
Thanks for adding the EV chargers!! Will be great to visit again!
Heading up Wednesday from Lexington.
I cant imagine so, but do all 8 spots get filled up often during the week or rarely more than 1-3 cars out of the 8?
On a normal weekday, we’ll only fill 3 or 4 of the 8 spots.
Is there parking available for my truck and 31ft RV? Not checking in to our campsite until 4pm, family is wanting to go to the park this Thursday.
Yes. Be sure to park in the Legend Parking lot – it’s the one across the road from the Front Gate.
Do I have to bring my Tesla charging cord?
We have the charging cords here. You can kind of see it in the photo on this blog post.
We’re planning a trip in early June. Do the EV charging stations fill up on the weekends? Should we arrive by a certain time to have a better chance at getting a charging spot?
To our knowledge, they’ve never filled up completely even on our busiest weekends so far.
I didn’t go in 2020, but used it in 2019. It was about 1/2 full on both days we went. No issues. If you get there at park open you can choose your spot.
We’re really looking forward to visiting this summer from Louisville. I love my Tesla Model Y and am super happy that Holiday World has these chargers available. Just another reason this is one of the best parks in the US.
My question is, can you exit and re-enter the park to move your car after it’s charged up? I don’t want to take up a slot for the entire day when I only need an hour or two to fully charge up.
You can! Just make sure to get your hand stamped on the way out so that you can get back into the park!
We will be visiting the park next week and this is just a great addition. Since we will be spending our time in rural southern Indiana this is just what we needed while visiting your park.
First, I think this is great! Only question, with all other EV vehicles/companies using J1772, will you be installing chargers for these too? A regular 110 plug is a super slow charge and would not really be worth bringing it to use.
Yes! We have 4 dedicated parking spaces for other EV charging using J1772 connectors in The Legend Parking Lot that you can use when you visit!
Since 2018, have you added or upgraded your charging stations for EV cars other than Tesla? 110V is really too slow for EV cars. Do you have any level 2 charging stations now? Thank you.
We have four dedicated parking spaces for other EV charging using J1772 connectors now.
Is there a time limit on the chargers? Do we have to exit the park to move the car or can we leave it there all day while in the park?
Hi Chelsea, at this time we don’t limit charging time and don’t see that in the cards this Season. Thank you for checking!
