Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari has announced it will now limit daily attendance. In a Monday news release, the Santa Claus park stated that attractions and restaurants could be limited as well because workers who are students, teachers and aides have been asked to remain at home to protect others.
“We understand the newfound unpredictability of staffing can be frustrating, and we want to be transparent in our uncertainty,” president and CEO Matt Eckert stated in the release. “We feel that limiting our capacity will provide the safest and best possible experience for the remainder of the season.”
People who want to buy a single-day visit will need to buy tickets in advance, but those who already have tickets and season passes have guaranteed entry for the day. The next date the park is open is Aug. 28 and it will remain open on weekends and holidays through October, according to its website.
The park also announced new hours for Saturday, Sept. 4 and Sept. 5, which are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for Holiday World and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Splashin’ Safari.
The park recommends that all patrons wear face masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated. It’s also asking people who have COVID symptoms, those who have been exposed to the virus and those who have been asked to quarantine to stay home. Their tickets can be exchanged for another date, according to the release.
Spencer County, where Holiday World is located, is currently shown in red on Indiana’s COVID dashboard, the highest of four levels. Its most recent 7-day positivity rate average is 7.6%.
