Lines so long to get food, children were passing out from standing. One food stand open? Easier to get toilet paper and stale bread in Soviet Russia. It's bad business to not take money people are trying to GIVE you. Shame on you.

We apologize that you were disappointed with your recent trip to the park. Our food service was adjusted to make the best use of limited staffing and added that information to our website at: https://www.holidayworld.com/update/ We hope you'll give us another chance.

We had a blast! The kids can’t wait to go back. Next time I think we will get a season pass so we have time to ride all the rides. There is so much to do for all ages.

Hands down the best park. Clean, free sunscreen, free drinks, lines are not an issue and too much to do! Something for everyone to do and keep occupied. Just go and check it out already!
