Holiday World goes digital for opening day

The amusement park postponed their actual opening of the park to early June.

SANTA CLAUS, Ind. — Holiday World will be hosting a Digital Opening Day on May 2. The Indiana amusement park postponed their actual opening to early June due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We may not be able to welcome guests through our gates on May 2 as we had originally planned,” said owner, Leah Koch. “But we’re going to celebrate it just the same.”

For this digital opening day, the park is offering a number of activities fans can view online for free. Some of which include a magic show, "riding" the attractions and a drone's view of a firework show set to Christmas music.

“Opening day is a special day that we count down toward every year. We can’t wait until we can open our gates to guests again, but until then we’re going to celebrate and help our guests bring opening day home,” Koch said.
