For her birthday this year, all Jordan wanted was to go to Holiday World Splashin' Safari. It is a huge water park, with so many water slides, play areas, etc. it is all around fun for the whole family. It is called Holiday World because it is in the little town of Santa Claus, IN. I kid you not, the name of the town is Santa Claus. How cool/weird is that. Let's just say the Christmas reigns there, and it is all year round. Even at the park, the real Santa is there to tell the kiddos stories, and take request along with pictures. They also have an amusement park with many fun rides.
I can't get over this place, they take your picture and instead of charging an arm and a leg like most amusement parks, you download it for free. You also get all the free soda pop you can drink all day, free sunscreen, and in our case free band-aids. They even have reasonably priced food! It is so family oriented, modest dress is the thing which is so nice, because who wants to explain to their kids why people are half dressed.
Needless to say, we had a wonderful time and I'm sure we'll be back again next year. Maybe the kids will actually enjoy the world's longest water coaster or tallest dropping water ride. They sure enjoyed the bumper cars, carousel, and the many other rides we went on in the "dry" park.
