“As always, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are dedicated to providing a fun and safe experience for our Guests and Team Members,” says Park President & CEO, Matt Eckert.

The parks also announced that attractions and restaurant availability may be limited, as many of their Team Members are students, teachers, and aides, who have been asked to stay at home for the protection of others.

“We understand the newfound unpredictability of staffing can be frustrating, and we want to be transparent in our uncertainty,” adds Eckert. “We feel that limiting our capacity will provide the safest and best possible experience for the remainder of the season.”

In addition, Holiday World recommends all Guests wear face coverings while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. The park asks Guests to please stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, you or someone in your travel party has been recently exposed to Covid-19, or you or someone in your travel party has been asked to quarantine by local health officials. Tickets can be changed to another date to accommodate by visiting Guest Relations during your visit.

“The last two years have truly been a roller coaster, but we are extremely proud of how our Team Members continue to overcome the challenges that the pandemic has thrown our way,” says Eckert. “It’s been a wonderful season filled with happy memories for families, and there’s still more fun on the way!”

I was at the park yesterday. I was both surprised and not surprised by the amount of rides that were closed considering all of the hiring issues this year and the rise of Delta. By and large the ops that were working seemed far from enthused to be at work. Very slow cycle times.

But the coasters were all running great and I finally got laps on Mammoth, Wildebeast, and Cheetah Chase.

I was there a week or two ago, and they were staggering the opening of the rides. A ride would be open half the day, and when it closed, another closed ride would be open. They we pretty clear on the scheduling of openings and closings.

It was my first time at the park, and I was impressed. They seem to know what they're doing.
