SANTA CLAUS, Ind. -- It's cold out right now, but it's never too early to think about your summer plans.
Holiday World is adding $3.5 million worth of new attractions and improvements for its 2018 season, the park announced Tuesday morning.
The main new additions are a slide complex and a junior wave pool, called Tembo Falls and Tembo Tides. Tembo is the Swahili word for elephant.
Tembo Falls will have eight junior slides, including twisters, a helix, a mini-bowl, and two racing slides. Tembo Tides is a wave pool for younger children.
“Tembo Falls and Tembo Tides are designed for children who are under 54 inches tall,” park president Matt Eckert. “But their older siblings and parents are welcome to enjoy the slides and wave pool with them.”
The $3.5 million will also go toward a maze for Halloween weekends, a stunt show, a musical magic show, improvements for The Voyage and an electric car charging station.
