(SANTA CLAUS) - For a second straight year, Holiday World and Splashin' Safari has collected four awards at the annual ceremony for the amusement park industry.
Amusement Today Magazine hands out the golden ticket awards based on a survey of hundreds of amusement park fans.
The Santa Claus park's new Bakuli ride was named best new water park ride. Holiday World's Bahari river ride won the same award last year.
The Voyage, which won best new ride last year, won the prize this year as best wooden coaster. Holiday World was named the friendliest park for a 10th straight year and the cleanest park for the eighth year in a row.
President Will Koch says the awards build up Holiday World's profile and attract visitors who otherwise might not seek out the Southern Indiana park. He says the award for the Voyage in particular should bring a flood of roller-coaster enthusiasts to check it out.
