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 one of two parks (Holiday World & Splashin' Safari) included for one great price.
Splashin' Safari features numerous family raft rides, two wave pools, plus water activities for children. The waterpark's flagship attractions are two incredible 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.
Access to adjoining theme park is included with admission. Holiday World is the world's first theme park and offers dozens of exciting rides and thrilling roller coasters, including Thunderbird, the nation's first launched wing roller coaster.
Of course, the best part of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari is the value. Unlimited soft drinks, inner tubes, and sunscreen are included with your admission.
