A few days ago, we posted this photo of our pal Mick Foley on Twitter for Autism Awareness Day.

A number of people tweeted their thanks to Mick, on behalf of their children.

… because it’s a wide spectrum that touches many families.

Did you know we have a Calming Room?

It’s available for our Guests with special needs who will benefit from a quiet, relaxing break from the park’s sensory stimulation.

Calming Room

The room, which includes bean bag chairs, a small tent, rocking chair, couch, plus adjustable lighting, is located inside our First Aid building  (the red-roofed building in Splashin’ Safari’s plaza).

Here’s a video tour:

Park Guests may reserve our Calming Room for 30-minute sessions on a first come, first served basis at Guest Relations, Holiday World Services, or First Aid.

The Accessibility page on our website includes a variety of information. For example, is your arm or leg is in a cast?  You can check which attractions are safe for you to ride. We even list where our manual-flush toilets are located (thanks to the mom who asked us for this).

We’ve also just uploaded our 2018 Guide to Ride & Accessibility Guide to the Accessibility page. There’s lots of information included in the guide, to help with planning your visit. Please take a look there for height and weight limits, health restrictions, cast information, pool-water depth, and more.
