Free Holiday World Tickets for Pre-K Kids! Claim Your 2024 Season Pass

It’s back!! Launched last year for the first time ever, Holiday World will again offer FREE HOLIDAY WORLD TICKETS to Pre-K kids for the 2024 season! Holiday World season passes will be FREE to four- and five-year-old children (born in 2019 or 2020) so they can visit Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari water park all season long!

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari

If you’ve never been before, Holiday World has its name because there are 4 themes throughout the park: Christmas, 4th of July, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. And a water park on top of that. Every day is a holiday at Holiday World! As the world’s first theme park, opening in 1946 as Santa Claus Land, the park is now called Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. In addition to its collection of world-class roller coasters and water coasters, Holiday World is notable for offering free parking, free sunscreen, and free soft drinks throughout the park, making a visit here one of the best values in the industry.

Holiday World is a destination for many families from Indy and beyond. With an amazing children’s area, a huge water park, and fun live shows, you’re in for a full day of adventure. If you love roller coasters, this park is for you! But if smaller and slower-paced rides are more your speed, you’ll also find just as many opportunities to enjoy yourself. Now, with the free Holiday World tickets offer for Pre-K children, there’s even more incentive to bring the little ones!

As a parent with small kiddos and children who are school-aged, I loved the versatility of the areas, allowing one adult to enjoy rides with the littles and another adult to advance to more thrilling rides with the bigs, and then the areas and play spaces that provided middle ground where everyone could play together. We spent most of our day at Splashin’ Safari water park and then wrapped up the evening with park rides. We ate our meals in the park and took advantage of the free sunscreen and soft drinks all day long!

Free Holiday World Tickets for Pre-K

“This might be the biggest ‘freebie’ at Holiday World since Free Unlimited Soft Drinks were added in 2000,” says 4th Generation Owner, Lauren Crosby. “We’re a family park, and the Pre-K pass is just the beginning of the value we’re adding to our Season Pass Lineup this year. We have three different types of passes, each with different perks, so families can pick the price and perks that suit them best.”

“We’re a family park,” adds Crosby. “We want to make it easier for families to enjoy their time here, and the Pre-K Pass, along with our new Season Pass perks, is going to be an amazing value for families. We’re proud to say that Holiday World will now be known for Free Parking, Free Sunscreen, Free Soft Drinks, and Free Pre-K Passes!”

Children must be born in 2019 or 2020 and be four or five years old when their Season Pass is processed for the season; age-confirming documents, such as a birth certificate or green card, are required.
