It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… and it’s all thanks to Six Flags Over Georgia! If you’re looking for something to get you in the holiday spirit, you’ve got to get over to Holiday in the Park at Six Flags.
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the kickoff the Holiday in the Park, and let me tell you, it is the perfect thing to do to get that festive feeling flowing. The best part about this activity is that they have something for everyone. I have teenagers, and not even they were “too cool” for this. Talk about a Christmas miracle! 😛
Christmas Comes to Life
As you enter the park Christmas comes to life as you pass underneath a lighted canopy featuring more than 100,000 lights that guide you down the Main Street promenade. You’re then gleefully greeted by Stilt Soldiers who take the holiday to new heights while the Candlelight Carolers serenade you with Christmas cheer. And if that wasn’t merry enough for ya, there are even entertainers who stroll the park bringing Christmas delight at every turn. Even the Looney Tunes characters get in on the magic at the Bugs Bunny BoomtownTheater. Also be sure to stop by the North Pole to snap a few pics with Jolly Ole Saint Nick and give him your holiday wish list.
Thrills & Attractions
When I said there was something for everyone, I wasn’t kidding. Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or have little’s on your hands, there is plenty of fun to go around. Holiday in the Park features 20 holiday rides, and magical holiday sights and sounds throughout along with all the thrills and excitement that Six Flags is known for such as 9 world-class roller coasters, and tons of themed areas. It’s basically a holiday wonderland–just take a ride on the North Pole Express, and you’ll see what I mean! There’s sooo much to do here for the holidays… Just see for yourself!
All the lights are probably my favorite part of Holiday in the Park. They just make everything feel so bright. 😛 And with over 1,000,000 Christmas lights filling the park, you immediately feel festive. Some of the glimmering areas included “A Main Street Christmas,” “Magic of the Season,” and one to soothe the nostalgia: “Retro Christmas USA.” So fun! Oh, don’t forget to take a ride on the historic Riverview Carousel. It’s adorned in over 100,000 lights and 250 luminary candles, creating the perfect backdrop for a magical night in the park.
Food, Firepits, & Fun
Of course, I wouldn’t send you anywhere that didn’t have yummy eats and tasty treats. Holiday in the Park takes care of all your tastebuds’ needs with firepits around the park where you can make s’mores. They also have more festive treats like Chocolate-Dipped Peppermint holiday pretzels and Christmas-inspired funnel cakes. I may or may not be drooling a bit just remembering all these delectable sweets! Oh, and did I mention they have a special Mac and Cheese Burger? Yeah. Exactly. 😀
Hustle Over to Holiday in the Park!
All of this sounds amazing doesn’t it? Well, hurry up and head to Six Flags Over Georgia to experience Holiday in the Park before it’s too late! Luckily the event runs after the holidays in case you don’t have time between now and then. The last day for Holiday in the Park is January 4. It runs on select days, so make sure to call or check out the website before visiting to make sure you get the full dose of the holiday hoopla.
So, what are you waiting for? Round up your little elves, load up the sleigh (or whatever mode of transportation) and make your way to Holiday in the Park at Six Flags.
I’ve been to Six Flags many times over the years, but I’ve never been during the holidays. All the lights are so pretty and the thrills and attractions look like so much fun.
We had so much fun when we went this year! My son loved all of the lights and of course, going on the rides was a plus!
Ours is closed for the winter, but glad yours is open still and you had fun.
We just passed by the one in New Jersey on the way to a Santa train ride on Friday. I think we need to do this next year!
It’s been YEARS since I’ve been to Six Flags. I love the decorations! And the carolers at night? Such a classic, homey feel. I’ll have to look into taking my daughter next year. (Too many things going on this year!) Or, she’ll be driving, she can go with her friends lol. So the rides are actually running during this time? Or just there for the visit?
Oh my goodness, so fun! Love that they get in the Christmas spirit.
For some reason I never think about going to a theme park for the holiday season. It looks like you and your family had a lot of fun. I might have to check out Six Flag for myself.
There is so much to see and do at Six Flags. I love how much they do for the holiday season. We will be heading there soon.
I never knew Six Flags did a holiday celebration! I think this would be so much fun to check out!
I had no idea that Six Flags even did this! We always enjoy visiting Six Flags in the summer with the family. We should go for the holidays sometime.
After looking at your photos we need to re-think going to six flags during the holiday season. Thought just never crossed my mind before.
How fun! I love the way that theme parks go all out for Christmas. What a beautiful Christmas tree and lights!
Here in Texas, we love going to Six Flags. My kids love it during the holidays with the carolers, snow hill,and hot chocolate. And I just love the shows.
This looks like a fantastic idea to spend some time at Six Flags this Christmas. I would love to do this one year it looks like you had a blast. The lighted canopy is so gorgeous. I love all the lights and the tree looks just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Oh my gosh, that must be so fun! I wish our Six Flags here were opened around Christmastime.
I have never been to Six Flags yet. The lights are so beautiful. That’s one the many things that I like about the holiday season.
What a grand display out there. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun!
