Holiday World announced their plans to open for the summer 2020 season. Holiday World will open to ticketed guests on June 17 with 50% capacity. Season pass holders will be permitted to visit Holiday World earlier — on June 14 Platinum Season Passholders can visit the park. On June 15th, Platinum Season Passholders and Season Passholders can visit the park. On June 16th Platinum Season Passholders, Season Passholders, and Summer Fun Card Passholders may visit. Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari have also added three operating days in August. Season Passholders can also choose to defer their pass to summer 2021.
Reservations and Tickets for Holiday World
In place of reservations, the park will sell date-specific tickets online and tickets will only be honored for the date they were purchased. If you have an Any Day pass that you previously purchased, these will still be honored but you will not be able to purchase these any longer.
As part of the phased reopening plan, officials plan to open Holiday World first, then open Splashin’ Safari no later than July 4.
Lines for Rides at Holiday World
This summer, Guests will also be able to use the inLine Reservation System, Holiday World’s new virtual queuing system. To keep queue areas from getting overly crowded, Guests enter the queue from their smartphone, then return and wait just 5-15 minutes in a physical queue. FANTASTIC! Those who don’t have smartphones, or choose not to use their smartphones will be able to use a barcoded wristband. If this works the way it’s supposed to, Holiday World will immediately become an even better place for families to enjoy.
Free Unlimited Soft Drinks at Holiday World
While the jury is still out if you’ll be able to use the self serve drink stations as usual, Holiday World promises that they’ll have unlimited soft drinks no matter what. If they get the okay from the Health Department to resume their normal procedures, you’ll get to top off your own drinks. If not, friendly Holiday World team members will be there to serve your drinks up.
The park will also be making other smaller changes to their operations including 90 Hand “Santatizer” Stations, increasing sanitation procedure frequency and adding sanitation processes for high-touch point areas, including attractions.
Face Masks at Holiday World
Face masks are expected to be optional in the state of Indiana by June 14th but Holiday World will follow the state’s guidance if this changes. If you do choose to wear a mask, masks are considered a loose article on thrill rides, so Holiday World Attractions Team Members may ask you to take it off just for the ride.
