Visit Holiday World Near Lake Rudolph

It's the most wonderful time of the year, any time of the year, when you can treat your family to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana. You can even enjoy complimentary shuttle service to and from the park when you stay next door as our guest at Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph.

The rides offer something for everyone. Tiny tots will delight in Rudolph's Roundup and Dasher's Seahorses, while adventure seekers can enjoy the cool thrills of Wildebeest and Mammoth, the world's longest water coasters. And the super daring can take flight on the Thunderbird, America's only launched wing coaster as you speed from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds!

Catch your breath with a selection of family-friendly shows that provide entertainment for kids and adults alike. Take the entire family to enjoy Dive!, an amazing production filled with divers that take a variety of dives that will leave your whole family on the edge of their seats. Or watch the night sky sparkle each evening during the Holidays in the Sky Drone and Fireworks Spectacular.

When you visit America's Christmas Hometown, Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph offers great amenities and plenty of ways to stay. RVers can choose from three site options to fit their needs, while tent campers can enjoy the shade of the forest. 

You can also try one of our vacation rentals for a special getaway. Multiple cabins and cottages can accommodate any group size. We have great options for groups of varying sizes and include our Christmas Cabins, Family Cabins, and Holiday Cottages. These stand-alone units feature multiple sleeping arrangements, a family room, a full kitchen, heat and air conditioning, plus outdoor porches to make your vacation the best it can be. 

When you're not experiencing the theme park thrills of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, you can enjoy all the amenities at Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph. Santa's SplashDown WaterPark is right on-site and features multiple slides, as well as the popular Dasher Splasher Splash Pad. After the thrill of the slides, take time to relax in our 3,700 square foot family pool. Your four-footed family members also have their own special park to enjoy, complete with a canine obstacle course. 

Back on land, two is the magic number! With two playgrounds and two basketball courts, fun is never more than a few steps away. Try your hand at miniature golf and gem mining, or head down to the beach for volleyball and paddle boating. Golf cart rentals are available to help you get to the action sooner. 

Craving a snack? Blitzen Kitchen is located at our camp store, and offers pizza, ice cream, shakes, sandwiches, chicken fingers, nachos and much, much more! 

Your family will enjoy a great time at Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph, no matter which of Santa's reindeer you root for.
