Although Holiday World & Splashin' Safari are closed for the season, their parking lot gates will re-open to the public later this month as the park auctions hundreds of useful and collectible items.

“A few months ago, I sent out the word for the staff to ‘clean house,’” says park president Will Koch. “Year to year, we ‘retire’ various equipment and other items. We think our clutter could easily be someone else’s treasure.”

The list of auction items includes:

  • Popcorn cart
  • Assortment of arcade games
  • Disco ball
  • Corn roaster
  • 300 lounge chairs
  • Small children’s ball crawl and crawl-through train
  • Snow-making machine
  • Spinning wheel, steam whistles and other antiques
  • Construction supplies (roll-up doors, vinyl siding, shutters, etc.)
  • Ditch Witch trencher
  • 40’ x 60’ tent top/canopy
  • 19 wall-mounted porcelain urinals

The auction is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, at 10:30 am CDT at the Lakeside Picnic Shelter, which is adjacent to Holiday World’s “Raven” parking lot. Scott Dixon of Dixon & Dixon Auction Service in Tell City will be the auctioneer.
