Holiday World

September 9th, 2013 . by Melissa

Santa Claus (yes-you-heard-me-right), Indiana is home to a wonderful little gem of an amusement park, Holiday World. I’ve been going to Holiday World since I was 3, of course it was much smaller then and didn’t offer free soda yet. I love this place. The ambience, the friendliness, the BLUE ice cream, and the nostalgia. It was such a great experience to share this place with my kiddos. In fact, most of the kid’s rides are the same ones I rode on! And we got to hang out with Jeff, too!

This was me at age 3 living it up at the HW. This ride is still there but it’s the only kiddie ride

we didn’t take the kids on because the line was long.
