CLOSED: This sweepstakes has ended, winners will be announced Tuesday, April 21!

Theme park fans always know how to make the very best of any situation.

Across the country, people are using this time in history as an opportunity to make memories with their families by recreating theme parks at home! We want you to join in the fun! Show us your #HomemadeHoWo by recreating our attractions, shows, or sections of our park and you could win!

We’re going to pick our sweepstakes winners randomly, but you get five entries if you submit a video, and just one if you leave a comment on our blog. To help out all our creators, we’ll be awarding a Grand Prize of four Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari tickets for this season and four second-place winners will receive 2 tickets!


Post your #HomemadeHoWo on the social media platform of your choice and paste a link in the comments below to enter. Your video or photo must be published as public, not private, for us to see your submission.

Just because this is random doesn’t mean you won’t get recognized. We’ll pick some of our personal favorites to share on social media and we’ll create a compilation video of our favorites as well.

You can (safely… PLEASE) recreate one of our attractions in your home (did you see that Pirates of the Caribbean video?), draw a new attraction and explain it in a video, or even create your own Holiday World board game like this guy did. We just ask that it’s submitted in video format on a platform we use (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).

This Bloop Loop article had some great examples of how fans are recreating their parks across the country.

We can’t wait to see how you bring our family fun to life in your own living rooms!

    Not sure about a video, but we love this park. Praying this pandemic is flattened soon so opening will not be delayed. We all need a break!


    I’m bringing Holiday World Home by showing my kids past trip pictures to Holiday World and having a dance party celebrating the fact that we will be back as soon as you reopen! We love Holiday World. #HomemadeHoWo

    We routinely pretend to open and close the “water slide” at “Holiday World” with a stick when we use our playground slide. We also have pretended to ride some rides and watch Mysterio. It makes me want to go so badly!

    I really want to come to Holiday World this summer. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can win some tickets. It is the best water park ever.

    We love Holiday World. It’s my two boys favorite place to go the past couple years. Very friendly clean Amusement Park.
