Holiday World
Santa Claus, IN
Holiday World opened in 1946 as "Santa Claus Land". This was the very first Santa themed park in the country. These storybook statues were installed then. They are only visible from outside the park or from the train ride. I don't believe there are any other old statues inside the park. The name was changed to Holiday World in 1984. Other themed areas, including 4th of July and Halloween, were added at that time. Over the years, Holiday World has added numerous non-Christmas-themed coasters and other rides as well as "Splashin' Safari", a water park. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4.
