Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari (known as Santa Claus Land prior to 1984) is a combination theme park and water park located near Interstate 64 and U.S. 231 in Santa Claus, Indiana, United States. The theme park is divided into four sections that celebrate Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July with rides, live entertainment, games, and attractions. Holiday World is known for its three wooden roller coasters: The Raven, The Legend, and The Voyage, as well as for Thunderbird, a B&M launched Wing Coaster and The Howler. The safari-themed water park includes the world’s two longest water coasters: Wildebeest and Mammoth, numerous family raft rides and water slides, two wave pools, a lazy river, two family “tipping bucket” water-play attractions, plus dedicated children’s slides and play areas.
Liberty Launch is a “double shot” ride; it uses compressed air to blast riders seven stories high and then bounces them up and down before coming to rest back at ground level. Try to guess the exact second when the “launch” will happen—it’s harder than you may think!
Even smaller children can ride Crow’s Nest! Children 42″ and taller may ride this 65-foot-tall vertical swing ride, as long as they ride with bigger family members. Crow’s Nest has all double seats, so you can snuggle up with your little seafarer as you fly high over Holiday World’s Thanksgiving section and close to Thunderbird!
The theme of The Legend wooden roller coaster is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, as riders race through the woods as if chased in terror by the relentless Headless Horseman. In 2016, Legend was “reborn,” with nearly 1,400 feet of new track (all eight layers!) plus the addition of a fifth tunnel and a new double-down element!The most dramatic drops on The Legend measure 113 feet, 77 feet, and 64 feet (the 77-foot drop features the world’s first spiral drop). The double helix throws riders from side to side and the disorienting finish (with a new double-down feature added in 2016!) sends Legend riders back to Ichabod Crane’s one-room schoolhouse to study up on just how extreme a coaster can be!
Thunderbird steel roller coaster at first soars and loops high in the air and then hugs the ground, surprising riders with rapid-fire “near misses” such as chimneys, a windmill, other rides, trees, and even
Holidog welcomes his friend Kitty Claws with another fun ride in Holidog’s FunTown – Kitty’s Tea Party!Choose from a blue cup, green cup or red cup for your family’s fun, spinny ride.
It’s time to burn off some energy, so head on over to Holidog’s Treehouse! With two stories of interactive, accessible playground fun, children (plus older siblings and adults accompanying their children) can play together!
Stir up some fun! Enjoy a wild rafting experience on Bakuli (pronounced bah-COOL-ee). Riders start out in a dark tunnel, then the bottom drops out and into the giant bowl you splash for a dizzying spiral ending. “Bakuli” is the Swahili word for bowl.
Kima Bay is a huge, monkey-themed waterplay attraction.Count to seven with Kima Bay’s fun water slides! There are more than 100 water-play elements for your little monkeys, including more than 125 water jets. The 1,200-gallon bucket fills constantly with water, tipping every few minutes to create a four-story waterfall.
Hyena Falls is four distinctly different in-the-dark water slides. The longest slide is 350 feet and includes a “wave” element – similar to our Zinga water ride – for a really cool ending. Grab an inner tube – and a friend – and ride Hyena Falls. You just might laugh yourself silly!
Air Time” on a water ride? Yes! When it’s a water coaster! Mammoth towers seven stories from highest to lowest point and covers more than three acres. The massive Mammoth begins with a conveyor ride up the water coaster’s lift hill. Following each breath-taking drop, LIMs will fly your boats back up hill after air-time-filled hill. What powers these six-passenger boats up the hills? Something called Linear Induction Motor (LIM) technology. In total, six LIMs magically propel the boats on their way through this 1/3 mile water coaster. Mammoth’s rafts are six-passenger boats. Round boats: Nine feet in diameter, flying up and down hills in the 12-foot-wide channels and tunnels. That means your thrilling trek on the World’s Longest Water Coaster (certified by the Guinness World Record folks) may be facing forward, facing sideways, or facing backwards. Facing backwards? Yes, and in the dark. There are five enclosed slide sections. And many twists and turns. Plus air-time, that incredible feeling of being lifted off your seat. Your whole family will be able to challenge Mammoth together – and watch each other’s delighted faces as you conquer this epic ride
Wildebeest begins with a conveyor ride up the water coaster’s lifthill. Following the four-story drop at a 45-degree angle, linear induction motors (LIMs) propels the four-person boats up seven additional hills, through two underground tunnels, and around a helix. Wildebeest covers more than two acres; its top speed is 36 feet per second. Wildebeest’s tallest elevation is 64 feet higher than its lowest drop; the conveyor-style lifthill replaces any slide-tower stairs, making the water coaster accessible to riders who might have difficulty walking up stairs.
