This has been my favorite place since I was a child! The park is always clean and the staff is always friendly. I suggest you ride the Voyage first!!!! You will not regret going to this park! Ps: unlimited drinks are the best here!!!!

Go at least once every summer. I love the free parking, suntan lotion, and the free soft drinks. Water park has 2 wave pools, lazy river and a lot of fun rides. They have great deals. Food is good. Live watching the diving show

Holiday World is an Indiana favorite place. Affordable and who doesn't like free sunscreen and soft drinks. There are plenty of rides on both the dry and wet side of the park. For a cheaper hotel rate - I recommend driving 30 minutes north to...More

The park is clean and the staff are friendly. The Halloween festivities are appropriate for younger children.

We visited during fall break, so the water park was obviously closed. We have been during the summer so we know the water park is a blast. But this time we got to ride all the non water rides and it was great! Our kids...More

This is our second time to Holiday World. The drinks, sunscreen and parking are free. This is such a clean park and recommend it for family vacation
