Holiday World & Splashin' Safari

Splashin' Safari has been named the Best Waterpark in the nation by USA Today and was voted the world's #2 water park by the readers of Amusement Today for four consecutive years (2002 to 2005). Located in Santa Claus, Indiana, this 22-acre waterpark is adjacent to and included with admission to Holiday World. Splashin' Safari features more than a dozen water attractions and rides, plus two wave pools and two lazy rivers.

The waterpark features two amazing water coasters Mammoth and Wildebeest. Thrill-seekers should also try ZOOMbabwe – the world's largest enclosed water slide, Zinga – an eight-story, 336-foot long slide that drops riders into a six-story-tall funnel, Jungle Racer – a ten-lane side-by-side racing, speed slide or Bakuli – a 73-feet tall, 325-foot long enclosed slide featuring a splashdown into a 60-foot diameter bowl. There is also plenty to do for young children, including Butterfly Bay – a 3,000 sq. foot gentle wave pool.

In 2013 Splashin' Safari expanded with four new in-the-dark tube slides. This new attraction called Hyena Falls includes a new 350-foot slide with a really cool "wave" element.

Of course, the best part of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari is the value. Unlimited soft drinks, inner tubes, and sunscreen are included with admission.

New for 2015– Thunderbird, the nation's first launched wing roller coaster.

Splashin Safari's Bakuli (bah-COOL-ee) raft ride begins a top a seven-story tall tower. Riders begin in total darkness, but end up in a giant bowl where you swirl around for several turns before flushing out the bottom. "Bakuli" is the Swahili word for bowl, but in reality it's more like a toilet bowl on steroids.

After a conveyor ride up a lift hill the six-passenger boats on the Mammoth Water Coaster fly down hills and then are propelled back up them using Linear Induction Motor (LIM) technology. This massive water ride towers over seven stories from its highest point to its lowest.
