IT problem at Holiday World, guests get in this weekend for $10

SPENCER CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Holiday World officials say guests can get into their first Halloween Weekend of the season for $10.

They say there is an IT issue, and some of the rides won’t be operating, and there will be limited food options.

Right now, Holiday world is able to take cards, but they are not sure if the system will continue to work.

Holiday World officials suggest you bring cash just in case. They say all proceeds will go to CASA of Spencer, Perry, and Dubois counties.

“This is a wonderful idea, everyone else should do what they’re doing, learn from what they’re doing,” said Felicity Shultz.

The IT issue happened during the opening weekend of Happy Halloween Weekends.

One of the scariest time of the year and officials at Holiday World say they are going all-in on the theme.

“Everyday at Holiday World is special, but especially during Happy Halloween Weekends we get to break out really neat mazes and really cool decorations and it’s just a fun time," said communications director Leah Koch.

President of Holiday World, Matt Eckert, echoed Koch’s enthusiasm, saying that the park transforms for September and October. Eckert says the amusement park offers a wide variety of activities including magic shows, musical numbers, 12 acres of corn mazes, haunted houses, and all the normal rides available at the park.

“We really do focus on the family," Eckert said. "You know we try to steer away from the spooky, scary things that a lot of places might have. That’s fine, but for us, we really focus on things that provide something for everyone in your entire family.”

Happy Halloween Weekends run from 11-8 on Saturday and 11-6 on Sunday through the end of October.

Pricing is expected to return to normal on Saturday, September 28th.

The park will continue to update their website for updates on the IT system and prices.
