“During his twenty-some years serving Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari as park president, my dad – Will Koch Jr. – never missed an opening day. Especially not when a new attraction was on the line. We do everything in our power to uphold his same standard – though circumstances this year kept us from our originally scheduled opening day, wrote Leah Koch, fourth-generation owner, and director of communications of the parks, wrote on their website. “We’re now excited to share that in accordance with Gov. Holcomb’s Back on Track Indiana Plan, we intend to open our gates on June 14.”
The park will see some operational changes. Hand sanitizer will be readily available and guests will need to exercise patience as staffers work to clean rides. Fans of Holiday World should also anticipate limits on park attendance.
“Our small-but-mighty team is now excitedly working hard to get ready. As a family-owned park, we’re feeling the pressure, but we’re also proving how mighty we are when we work together,” Koch wrote. “And now that we have a target date to work toward, we’re moving full-speed ahead.”
