Holiday World getting new shops, lookMarch 7, 2014
From local sources
SANTA CLAUS — Visitors to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari will experience enhanced themes in the parks this season. Park President Matt Eckert said Holiday World is partnering with PGAV Destinations, a design firm in St. Louis, for several projects for the 2014 season:
”¢ Wildebeestro restaurant in Splashin’ Safari: A grab-and-go food outlet serving wraps, seafood, salads, fruit and other items.
”¢ Safari Outpost shop in Splashin’ Safari: One-stop shopping, with swimwear, sundries and souvenirs.
”¢ New interior and exterior designs for Mrs. Klaus’ Kitchen in Holiday World’s Christmas section, including a new home for visits with Santa Claus.
Eckert said PGAV’s experience with theme and water parks such as SeaWorld and Universal Studios helped to make its design team the right choice for Holiday World.
“PGAV is in tune with the story we want to tell,” Eckert said. “We are excited to add to the magic our park has offered since we opened as the very first theme park back in 1946.”
Holiday World will open for the season Saturday, May 3 with the premiere of the Mayflower swinging ship ride. Both parks will be open daily beginning Friday, May 16. For more information, visit HolidayWorld.com or call 800-467-2682.
