Need a Getaway? Or a ‘Holiday’ as the Brits Say?

Voyage Roller Coaster

Rides and slides, oh my!  Holiday World, located in Santa Claus, IN, is the world’s first theme park and it’s in our own Hoosier backyard. This amusement park has all the thrills without the high price and long lines. Owned by the Koch family, their mission is to be number one in family fun. Although the park is closed for the season, this should be put on the to-go list for the summer.

Holiday World is the home of the number one roller coaster on the planet. The Voyage, whose track is a little over a mile long, takes its passengers on dramatic drops, extreme banks, and leaves them feeling weightless. Roller coasters just not your thing? No problem, rides for the family and the little ones will suit everyone in the family.  And when things get really hot, Splashin’ Safari is the water park that is the home to over 10 water slides and rides.

Holiday World is a great alternative for a vacation on budget in today’s economy. Since the park is family owned, you, as a visitor, will get  a great price, have an enjoyable time, and be greeted with a welcoming atmosphere. So, in the spring when it starts to warmer out, think about make a trip to Holiday World. Did I mention you get unlimited soft drinks? That’s more money back in your pocket!
