One of the nation’s leading consumer magazines names Holiday World & Splashin' Safari the country’s “Top Value Park” in its current issue.
Consumers Digest’s March/April edition features an article titled “America’s Top Amusement Parks.” The six-page report names the Top Value Parks in North America, with Holiday World in the #1 spot. The article praises the park’s “enchanting holidays theme, an attraction-packed water park and some of the country’s best wooden coasters,” plus the park’s ground-breaking free soft drinks program, free sunscreen, free parking, and no extra charge for Splashin' Safari admission.
“This designation validates all these crazy programs we’ve launched over the year,” says Holiday World & Splashin' Safari’s president, Will Koch. “Other parks told us we were crazy to give away soft drinks, but we’ve felt all along it was the right thing to do for our Guests.”
The Consumers Digest report also includes a prediction that The Voyage, Holiday World’s record-breaking wooden coaster that opened in 2006, is “destined to become a classic.” The Voyage was named one of the Top Five “Can’t Miss Attractions” in North America.
Holiday World opens for the season on May 5, with the premiere of Turkey Whirl, a themed tilt-a-whirl ride; Splashin' Safari opens for the season on May 12 with the new Bakuli family water slide.
