Holiday World set to make big announcement

SANTA CLAUS, Ind. (WISH) — Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari will announce Thursday night details of a $22 million investment in the park.

The theme park has been giving clues on its website for the past 66 days. Vice President Eric Snow told 24-Hour News 8 on Thursday morning it will be the biggest and most expensive ride at the park.

“We are answering the call to our guests who have been requesting something like this for many, many years,” Snow said, adding the ride will involve “a lot of steel.”

Holiday World plans a celebration surrounding the announcement, which will be made at 9:30 p.m. Indianapolis time. The park will have a big screen with animation of what the ride will look like, and the announcement will be capped off with fireworks. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
