SANTA CLAUS, Ind. — Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari will open at their usual time Friday morning following an evening evacuation at the park Thursday.

Indiana State Police have issued the “all clear” following the report by a park guest that an unattended backpack appeared suspicious.

“We followed protocol,” says park president Matt Eckert. “We worked with State Police to evacuate the park safely of all guests and employees. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciated everyone’s cooperation.”

Eckert says the park provided free return tickets to guests as they left.

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are open daily. For more information, visit or call 1-877-463-2645.
