Holiday World & Splashin Safari has released a statement with details about what to expect during the 2020 season. As of now, the park is planning to open Holiday World on June 17 to the public (season pass holders will have the opportunity to visit earlier). Splashin Safari will stay closed until at least July 3. The statement below comes directly from holidayworld.com\/. You won\u2019t need to make a reservation to get in the park, but you will need a ticket or pass Our new ticket calendar will be live again in the next few days, and your ticket will now only be valid for the specific date you purchase. Our goal was to reduce complication for our Guests during a time when our experience is going to necessitate more complications than ever. We\u2019ll only sell the number we feel comfortable with each day, based on groups that are coming, past Season Passholder attendance, and whether the water park is open. Season Passholders may come on any day they choose with no reservations (we\u2019ve made some estimates based on past Season Passholder attendance and added an allowance of a few more just to be safe). AnyDay tickets will no longer be for sale, but if you purchased one, we\u2019ll still honor it on any day (we\u2019ve made a daily allowance for you as well). Free Unlimited Soft Drinks are still going to be there When it comes to our self-serve stations, we\u2019re waiting on guidance from our health department and the National Restaurant Association. If self-serve stations are restricted, we\u2019ll have Team Members who can pour you as many soft drinks as you can drink. We\u2019re targeting a July 4 opening for the water park This was a hard decision for us. We\u2019re beyond excited to open Cheetah Chase and start thrilling riders in the water park once again. But we also want to make sure our processes are solid before we add the complexity of the water park. We\u2019ve also had to entirely reimagine parts of our lifeguard training with social distancing in mind\u2013and we\u2019ve had to wait on approval from American Red Cross and the State of Indiana. We think we\u2019ll be able to begin training soon, but it has been delayed. We\u2019re opening Cheetah Chase when we can We\u2019ve finished building the ride and we\u2019re ready for testing. To put it simply, we think opening an attraction when it\u2019s ready is the right thing to do for our Guests. You\u2019ll wait in line virtually We\u2019re especially excited to share that with our new\u00a0inLine Reservation System, you\u2019ll have visibility for the first time at Holiday World into wait times as well as you\u2019ll get your time back. All you have to do is join the virtual queue and your phone will tell you when you can come back and enjoy the ride. This helps us make sure our queues don\u2019t have too many people in them and helps us maintain social distancing. With our new inLine system, you\u2019ll visit a website (we\u2019ll have the link ready on our free wi-fi) and pick which ride you want to get in line for. There\u2019s no making reservations 30 days ahead of time and no line-skipping. People can\u2019t get in line until they\u2019ve entered the park. One perk? You may be able to get in line for The Voyage at the front of the park, then walk your way there in your time. We\u2019re working out a system for people who don\u2019t have smartphones (or whose smartphones lose battery quickly on a fun day at Holiday World). If it helps, I like to picture one of Santa\u2019s elves going ahead and hopping in line for me, then we trade places right before the ride while the elf enjoys a ride in the digital world. We don\u2019t expect you\u2019ll need a face mask We expect face masks to be optional in public in the state of Indiana by June 14th. We will follow the state\u2019s guidance if this changes. Masks are considered a loose article on thrill rides, so our Attractions Team Members may ask you to take it off just for the ride. If you do choose to wear a mask, we thank you for your consideration of your fellow Guests and our Team Members. Our Season Passholders get to enjoy the park first Our Season Passholders are loyal and care deeply about Holiday World & Splashin\u2019 Safari. To say thank you, we\u2019re doing a staggered opening: \tJune 14: Platinum Season Passholders \tJune 15: Platinum Season Passholders and Season Passholders \tJune 16: Platinum Season Passholders, Season Passholders, and Summer Fun Card Passholders may visit \tJune 17: Open to those who have purchased tickets online We\u2019ve also added three operating days in August which brings you to a grand total of 82 operating days. We also plan to host a Season Passholder Cheetah Chase preview event. We also know our Season Passholders will let us know what\u2019s working and what isn\u2019t and so we\u2019re excited to greet them first, and have them help us improve. Season Passholders may also defer their passes to 2021 free of charge in August of this year. We\u2019ll reach out if we see you haven\u2019t used your pass by August of 2020. We\u2019ll help you social distance We\u2019re going to have decals on the ground to help you stay six feet away from others when you\u2019re standing in line. We\u2019re going to be incredibly conservative about how many tickets we sell at first, and build once we\u2019re comfortable, this way there should be plenty of space in the walkways. Our indoor dining restaurants (Santa\u2019s Merry Marketplace and Plymouth Rock Cafe) will have limited indoor seating and changed procedures in addition to our distanced outdoor seating. We\u2019re doing our best to make it easy for you. All you need to do is remember to stick to the decals and stay distanced from other groups. There\u2019s more to come There\u2019s a lot more we\u2019re planning that won\u2019t change your day significantly. For example, we\u2019re adding automatic utensil dispensers to our Food & Beverage locations, and our cleaning and sanitation procedures will be happening much more frequently.
