Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari Make USA Today Best Honors

SANTA CLAUS, IND.—–Holiday World’s Voyage Wooden roller coaster and Splashin’ Safari water park took top honors in the USA Today “10 Best” Poll. In the newspaper’s month-long online voting, fans were challenged to vote for their favorite wooden coaster and water park from among 20 nominated for America’s “10 Best”.

After extensive work on nearly 1,000 feet of track in the 2019 off-season, the Voyage lifted to #4 in the 2020 USA Today 10 Best Coaster Poll from #7 in the previous year. The 1.2 mile long coaster is among the top two longest wooden coasters on the planet. The Voyage also has three sections of extreme, 90-degree banking and five underground tunnels, which is also a world record.

Covering nearly 40 acres, Splashin’ Safari, one of the world’s largest water parks earned the #2 spot of America’s 10 Best Outdoor Water parks. Cheetah Chase, the World’s First Launched Water Coaster joined Wildebeest and Mammoth, solidifying Splashin’ Safari’s position as the Water Coaster Capital of the World.

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are open daily through August 10 and will be hosting the final firework show of the 2020 season on Saturday, August 1 at 9:00 pm CDT.
