Posted: Updated:
SANTA CLAUS, In. (WDRB) - Holiday World & Splashin' Safari's Wildebeest water coaster took top honors during the 2014 Golden Ticket Awards ceremony, held Saturday evening at SeaWorld San Diego in California.

For the fifth year in a row, Holiday World's Wildebeest water coaster was named the world's number one waterpark ride. This honor was given by Amusement Today magazine, which presented the results of its annual survey of the “Best of the Best” in the amusement park industry.

For the fifteenth consecutive year, Holiday World & Splashin' Safari were named the number one cleanest park, outranking such parks as Disney World, Kings Island, Dollywood and Cedar Point.

“For this award, we once again thank our amazing hosts and hostesses,” said park president Matt Eckert. “We're borderline obsessive about keeping our parks clean and always will be.”

In other categories, Holiday World's Voyage and Raven roller coasters were named among the world's top 15 wooden coasters, Splashin' Safari was named the number two water park, plus the parks' staff was named the second friendliest in the world.

Amusement Today is an international monthly trade journal for the amusement and water park industries, based in Arlington, Texas. The Golden Ticket Awards are determined by surveys submitted by well-traveled park enthusiasts from around the world.

Holiday World & Splashin' Safari will be open to the public on September 13 and closed for a private outing on September 14. Happy Halloween Weekends begin on September 20.
