‘USA Today’ names Holiday World a ‘Cheap Trick’


With the summer vacation season fast approaching and gasoline prices reaching record highs, editors at USA Today sought money-savings advice from top travel experts for a feature in today’s edition.

The article, called “Cheap Tricks for summer travel” includes advice to visit Holiday World, plus a photo of the park’s Raven roller coaster.

 “When we heard about the article and photo this morning, we headed over to USA Today’s website and got another wonderful surprise, ” says Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari president Will Koch. “The photo of The Raven is also the on the front page of their website!”

 USA Today has a circulation of 2.3 million; their website is ranked as one of the top 500 most visited sites in the world. Today’s article also advises travelers to purchase theme park tickets at a discount  directly from the parks’ websites.

 Last year, Consumers Digest magazine named Holiday World the nation’s “Top Value Park.” Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari provide free soft drinks, free sunscreen, free parking, plus free use of inner tubes in the water park.

 Holiday World opens for the season on May 3 with the premiere of Star Spangled Carousel and Reindeer Games; Splashin’ Safari’s opening day is May 10, with the debut of the monkey-themed Kima Bay family waterplay attraction. For more information, visit the parks’ website at or call 1-877-463-2645
