Holiday World creates new activities for kids

Holiday World Celebrates 70th Season_49500983-159532

SANTA CLAUS, Ind. (WEHT) — Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari have created a page full of ways to bring the theme park home.

Holidog’s Digital FunTown has interactive videos, printable worksheets, and content for kids of all ages. In addition to workout, magic and cooking videos, adults can also enjoy Spotify playlists and the Holiday World Podcast.

“As soon as schools started closing, we started hearing from parents who just wanted to bring their kids for the summer already,” says fourth-generation owner, Leah Koch. “Since Opening Day may be farther away than we’d hoped, we decided we needed to bring a little Holiday World into everyone’s homes.”

As part of the effort to kick summer off early, families are encouraged to recreate Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari rides at home, or invent new rides for the park and share those ideas using the hashtag #HomemadeHoWo. Those 18 and older who submit videos will be eligible to win tickets to Holiday World this summer. 

Holiday World says COVID-19 may postpone Opening Day. You can check their website for the latest information.
