Indiana’s Theme and Water Parks
Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari
This is one of Indiana’s main theme parks and is located in Santa Claus. This park was originally a Christmas themed park but now it has areas that are themed for other holidays including Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the Fourth of July.
It offers a variety of rides including three wooden roller coasters that are some of the best in the world. Recently, they opened a ride called “Thunderbird,” which is the nation’s first launched wing coaster.
Splashin’ Safari is the water park included with admission to Holiday World and was named the best water park in the nation by USA Today. It features family rides, two wave pools, and water activities for children.
Indiana Beach Amusement Park and Water Resort
This park is located in Monticello and is also one of the main parks in Indiana. The amusement park offers thrill rides, family rides, and kids rides. One of the most popular rides is the “Hoosier Hurricane,” a wooden roller coaster with turns and drops that skim the edge of the waters of Lake Shafer.
The water park features six water slides, a lazy river, a small water coaster, and Splash Bash, a water playground with fountains, waterfalls, and splashes. Water park admission is included with the amusement park.
Deep River Water Park
This outdoor park is part of the Deep River County Park and features a half-million gallon wave pool, an 800 foot lazy river, water slides, and a children’s play area. It is home to “Double Dueling Cannon Bowl Ride,” the world’s first dueling bowl tube rides.
