Santa Claus, Indiana, USA
September 28, 2020 – Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari officially closed for the season.
The park normally stays open through October, but decided to shut down operations this year due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
Park officials decided to close early because they would not have been able to hold their annual Halloween corn maze, hayrides or haunted houses under COVID-19 guidelines.
Holiday World opened its doors one month later than usual for the 2020 season due to the pandemic. The amusement park issued a lot of new safety protocols to make sure guests had fun while staying safe this season and is hoping that normal operations can resume next year, when Holiday World celebrates its 75th anniversary.
