Holiday World Tips

Saturday, July 24, 2021 12:38 PM

I'm planning to squeeze in a trip to Holiday World with the kids (who haven't been, now all over 54"!) before school starts. Typically I've visited on the weekend in early August, and I recall that while it was busy, it wasn't terrible. The longest I waited for The Voyage, for example, was 40 minutes. Wildebeest maybe a bit longer.

But it's also been 10 years since my last visit.

I'm hoping to get in a couple night rides. Right now I'm looking a half day Saturday Aug 7th (park open until 9:00) for coasters and flats, and a full day on Sunday in the waterpark (11:00-6:00)

For those who have been recently, in general how are the crowds on the weekends? Still manageable or am I looking at 90 minute waits? Yes, I know, weekdays are better but that will be tough to fit into our schedule.

I went on a Wednesday in the middle of this past June. The one thing that struck me was how busy it was. It was shaping up to be a terrible day for getting a lot of coaster rides in. I was about to throw in the towel and leave but decided to eat lunch at the park. When I got done eating at about 1:00 it was as if everyone decided to leave the park. Turns out they did - they all went to the water park. That left the ride side high and dry and allowed for some great walk-ons and even some re-rides. Turned out to be a great couple of hours before I had to leave to get to where I was going that evening.

I know this doesn't exactly line-up with with your weekend question but I would suspect the same thing happens on the weekend as well. My guess is your half day on Saturday should be decent at getting some rides in.
