Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari World, the theme park and waterpark in Santa Claus, Indiana, has partnered with foster care agencies in Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee, to co-launch a new Foster Family Program.

The program enables children in foster care in the participating states to visit Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari once a year for no cost.

Resource parents and people accompanying the children in foster care to the parks are eligible for discounted tickets.

Kentucky Governor Andu Beasher, commented on the scheme: “We are so grateful to Holiday World for recognizing foster families with this benefit.

“The amazing foster parents I’ve met say their biggest reward is helping children and their families heal and reunite, but benefits like this give them an invitation to the summertime fun and adventure that every child deserves. What a great way to say thank you to these dedicated parents for all they do,” said Beasher.

Matt Eckert, Holiday World president and CEO said: “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate 75 Years of Fun than rolling out the Foster Family Program to share the fun with as many families as possible.”
