Here are some helpful tips for planning a festive trip to Holiday in the Park.
Be sure to check our site for Holiday in the Park operating hours. We are open select days, November 23 – January 1.
Download our Holiday in the Park guide or pick one up as you enter the park.
Snag a great deal online: buy your tickets online before your visit. All the best deals are right on our site.
Check our Events page to see a listing of special events being held during Holiday in the Park such as guest performances by visiting choirs.
Arrive early. There's a lot to do and you'll want plenty of time to do it wall without feeling rushed.
Bundle up! Yes we'll have plenty of heaters and indoor venues for you to get all toasty in, but you won't want to rush past all of the dazzling lights.
Come hungry. At least leave room for a treat or two or three or four. There are so many delicious holiday goodies at the park during this time of year that you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t have enough room for a bite or two.
We have an amazing line-up of holiday shows so pick up an entertainment schedule as soon as you walk through the front gate so you can plan your day and make sure you see them all.
If you decide to turn your visit into one big happy family outing, make sure to designate a meeting place. There’s so much to do, see and enjoy at Holiday in the Park, that members of your group are bound to get distracted and accidentally walk away.
Eat at non-traditional hours to save time. There are lots of tasty holiday treats at the park so things can get a little hectic during meal times. Better yet, since it’s the holidays anyway, eat non-traditional meals: Santa loves seasonal funnel cakes with hot chocolate. He says it’s a very yummy dinner that he looks forward to every night.
Our park is a smoke-free environment so to stay off of Santa’s naughty list, we recommend smokers only smoke in the designated smoking areas.
Scream your head off on Wild One or Reindeer's Flight. Either of these gut-wrenching coasters is sure to relieve any and all holiday stress.
Leave late. The views from our coasters are breathtaking at night and the rides are amazing.
Check any family grudges at the front gate. Smile and have a great time. It’s the holidays!
