You know summer is almost here when we start talking about Holiday World & Splashin' Safari opening their gates for the season. This year (2021), that will happen on Saturday, May 15th for Holiday World. Splashin' Safari will get things rolling the following week (May 22nd). And, what better way to enjoy a day at the park than for free with a pair of tickets on us!

This year marks the park's 75th anniversary and they're currently in the process of putting together a commemorative book in honor of the occasion they're hoping you can help them with. If you have any memories or photos from your many trips to the park, even if they're from back when it was known as Santa Claus Land, you can submit them through the Holiday World website for the chance to be included in the book and other media used to promote the anniversary. Earlier this year, the park released the video below showing the incredible evolution and growth it's experienced over that time resulting in it become one of the top theme parks in the country.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the park was forced to wait until late June last year to open their gates, and even then they were only able to allow a limited number of guests inside at any given time. While they have yet to announce what, if any, regulations will be place as the 2021 season gets underway, the park's Director of Communications, Leah Koch said in a press release earlier this year, the park would "continue to follow recommendations provided by the State of Indiana, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA)." As of this writing, there has been no announment from the park in regards to limiting the number of people allowed inside, mask wearing, or social distancing. Whatever those policies happen to be, if they exist, there's no doubt Holiday World will make sure you and your family still have a great time making memories.

We are more than happy to get you in those gates to make those memories absolutely free. All you need to do is listen to Leslie & I during the Q Crew Morning show every weekday morning between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m. for the chance to win. Be sure to have your phone near by so you can try to win once we give you the cue to call. If you get through, we'll hook you up with a pair of tickets so you and a guest can spend the day riding all the great rides, and enjoying all the great shows Holiday World & Splashin' Safari has to offer. Good luck!

Single day tickets and season passes are available now through the Holiday World website.
