Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari Honours Long Service Employees


Holiday World & Splashin' Safari has presented long service awards to four employees who have collectively worked for the theme park for 70 years. 

Long service awards are presented annually to employees who have been with the company for multiples of five years.

“It’s this core of longtime staff members that helps to make the transition smooth each spring as our employee numbers swell from 90 to more than 2, 200—we’re very fortunate to have them on our team, ” said Holiday World & Splashin' Safari president Matt Eckert.

Holiday World opens for the new season on April 25 and looks forward to the unveiling of the new launched wing coaster, Thunderbird.
