SANTA CLAUS, Ind. - Just in time for the stormiest weather of the week, one of the state’s popular attractions has earned an award for its weather preparedness.
This week, officials from the National Weather Service presented Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari with StormReady accreditation.
Holiday World officials said safety is their top priority and they’ve been working toward this honor since 2007.
In the last 7 years, the park has upgraded its communications and backup communications systems. It’s also created an emergency operations center that functions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Only a few other theme parks in the nation have earned this accreditation.
Watch our video to get a look at some of the park's rides and other fun.
