You can holiday safely this year at Six Flags! Holiday In The Park is the theme park’s annual holiday festival and will be running through January 3, 2021. Featuring all of your festive favorites like lights & decor, holiday treats, thrilling rides and amazing street entertainment, this year also focuses on extra safety measures to help curb the spread of COVID-19. So let’s walk through the park and preview some of the sights (and be sure to catch the video at the end of this article too)!
Just like their Halloween event (HALLOWFEST 2020), Six Flags entertainers were practicing social distancing and had masks on so that attendees could enjoy the performances as safe as possible. That means you can still enjoy seeing your favorite characters like Jack Frost, Snow Queen, Poinsettia Princess, Evergreen, Queen, and especially Santa Claus!
This year, Santa was found in the brand new section “Jolly Jamboree” (check your Six Flags app to find its specific location). Fans will be thrilled to see brand new decorations, beautiful lighting, and dedicated dining hall called the “Holiday Feastival”! Here you can enjoy a full-on holiday meal complete with lights & music:
The feast includes a choice of a meat entree, sides, dessert, and a drink. On this particular weekend, the special of the day was the Yankee Pot Roast. At only $17.99 (or a meal plan + $2) it’s an incredible bargain compared to the pricier park snacks you might be munching on:
But as always, holiday treats are available all throughout the park: s’mores, hot chocolate, and Holiday Spirits like spiked egg nog or cider… all while enjoying the incredible view of the millions of lights illuminating Six Flags!
Almost every tree and bush was decorated or lit, adding to the holiday magic you feel as you listen to some classic tunes. Returning again this year were the Polar Point forest (above), giant Ornament Light Structure, and the Deck the Halls lights. So get your cameras ready for some memorable photo ops!
Six Flags did an incredible job making the whole experience safe and enjoyable. As always, admission into the park is timed and capacity is limited. This also makes availability for their dozens of rides much more open throughout your stay. Plus, you might be so busy taking in all the decorations that hopping on a coaster over & over might be an afterthought!
For kids, there’s so much to see & do at Holiday In The Park! From “Whimsical Wonderland” to “Main Street Christmas”, you’ve got games, rides, and treats just for your little ones – including the all new section, “Wild Lights National Park”! Most of the Boardwalk games were active too (like Whac-a-Mole), and the Gift Shops are all bursting at the seams with holiday gifts in addition to the usual park merchandise.
All the while, the snow machines are pumping, the lights are shining, and the popular 52-foot animated tree show, “A Celebration Of The Season”, plays every hour to inspire you and your family. So if you’re looking to get a little jolly leading up to the holidays, consider visiting your nearby Six Flags theme park for Holiday In The Park. And check to see if your location is offering the new after-hours “Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience” where you don’t even have to leave your car to enjoy the event!
