What’s New This Season at Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari?

If you have read Boomtown USA or followed our Agurban for very long, you know we are big fans of Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana! Each year, the incredible leadership of the theme park adds new and exciting features to the park to keep their guests coming back year after year. This year is no exception.

This year’s main new attraction is Hyena Falls, featuring four in-the-dark water slides, with the longest slide measuring 350’ and including a half-pipe element, creating a back-and-forth skate-boarding effect.  You won’t want to miss it!

The April edition of FamilyFun magazine announced its 2013 Travel Awards, and, in the amusement park category, Holiday World is listed third, after Disney World and Disneyland. Following a description of Holiday World’s coasters and “massive water park with a mind-blowing assortment of rides,” the magazine lists the perks of free soft drinks, sunscreen and parking, and then poses the tongue-in-cheek question: “Who’s running this place? St. Nick?”

Holiday World’s 67th season began this past weekend on May 4th; the premiere of Hyena Falls is May 10th, Splashin’ Safari’s opening day.
