Last December I attended my first “Holiday in The park” at Six Flags Magic Mountain and it was an experience like no other! I am still geeked out about a year later and can’t wait for others to partake in all the excitement too. Sometimes I forget I am a grown adult because I still enjoy thrill coasters and Magic Mountain has transformed their park into a winter wonderland that will awaken you with the sounds, sights and smells of Christmas. I was also pleased to see a lot of Hanukkah decor as well.
New This Year
This year Magic Mountain’s Holiday In The Park will expand to 44 nights— the most ever presented—beginning November 23 through January 5. Holiday in the Park begins each day at 5 p.m., signaled by the first falling snow of the evening. The park will transform into a spectacularly-lit winter wonderland for guests to enjoy over the holiday season.
DC UNIVERSE™ will come to life as Rockin’ Universe, featuring three dancing light shows, each customized to contemporary holiday music. As one of the largest programmed light shows on the West coast, each five-minute display will include multiple lighting variations with tens of thousands of lights synchronized to holiday musical favorites.
Taste Of The Holidays
In addition to the new themed areas, Six Flags Magic Mountain is also welcoming back their holiday themed food festival, Taste of the Holidays, December 14-29. Featuring holiday-inspired traditional culinary delights in mouth-watering, non-traditional ways, guests will find a large variety of specialty holiday foods from delicious main courses to mouth-watering desserts.
Let’s face it, part of the fun of going to an amusement park is eating! With Taste of the holidays which takes place from December 14-29., you can sample a plethora of holiday foods!
Families can roast marshmallows over a fire pit. They come pre-assembled in a plastic bag complete with marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers. The pits are HUGE so you should have no problem finding a spot.
Visit Santa At Santa’s Cottage
Santa has moved into brand new digs! Santa’s Cottage will now be home to the jolly man with the white beard and red suit, along with crafts with Mrs. Claus and her merry elves. Visit Santa in his new home next to Bugs Bunny World every Holiday in the Park operating day beginning at noon until December 24.
Take a step back in time in the Gleampunk District: A Steampunk Holiday experience. Thousands of lights will illuminate the tree-lined streets and planters of the largest themed area of Holiday in the Park. Guests will be transformed into the 19th century with the sights and sounds of the industrial revolution. Unique acrobatic artistry with a holiday flair highlights the Kwerkmas show in Gearworks Theater. On the façade of Gearworks Theater, a fantastic journey will take you on a video adventure into the inner workings of the Steampunk Candy and Toy Factory. And, don’t forget your photo in an iconic steampunk sleigh
As you enter Holiday in the Park, the Six Flags Plaza area will be transformed into Holiday Square with a kaleidoscope of breath-taking color, featuring hundreds of thousands of lights on trees and buildings throughout the area while snowflakes and carolers delight guests as they enter this magical scene.
Make sure you packed your dancing shoes because Snowy Nights, the live holiday show, features contemporary music and themed dancers on the Full Throttle stage. It’s super high energy and literally everyone is dancing and it’s so contagious! The dancers are really into it and the whole show is choreographed really well.
Peppermint Fudge and Hot Chocolate
Holiday in the Park features thrilling memories for guests of all ages. From photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, to delicious hot chocolate and peppermint fudge, and viewing an enhanced light show with specially made 3-D glasses, this is the must-do, must-see, must-experience event of the season.
Candy Cane Lane
Be sure to stroll through Candy Cane Lane and take in all of the fun snow and snow sculptures. There is a photo opportunity at every turn! They also play music and you can hear the rumble of the roller coasters as you walk through.
We had the MOST AMAZING time at Holiday in the park and literally can’t wait to go back again. I am so in love with this park, it’s ride, it’s decor, it’s employees and everything in between. They did a stellar job bringing the holidays to my heart. Thank You magic Mountain!
