7 Things to Do at Holiday in the Park 2018
Our brightest holiday celebration kicks off November 17. At our exclusive seasonal event, you’ll find everything you need to celebrate the most wonderful time of year. Here are seven incredible features at Holiday in the Park 2018.
1. Ride in Santa’s VR sleigh.
Santa's Wild Sleigh Ride will take you on a ride alongside Santa in a virtual reality adventure. Using Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus, fly through town while battling a mischievous elf. You’ll dodge obstacles, launch snowballs at targets, and experience wild twists and turns while riding The New Revolution.
2. View holiday lights – from the top of a coaster!
Sure, you could drive around your neighborhood to see beautiful light displays, but nothing quite beats the view from above. Rise up the staggering lift hill on Twisted Colossus or soar to the top of LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom to see the entire park twinkling at once. It’s the same views Santa gets!
3. Enjoy a charming visit to Santa’s workshop.
Instead of visiting Santa at your local shopping mall, you’ll get the entire North Pole experience at Six Flags. Step inside the warmth of Santa’s toy workshop to meet the elves and of course, jolly St. Nick himself! (through December 24)
4. Enjoy a fresh funnel cake – with a side of hot chocolate!
Not only can you enjoy all your favorite park fare, but we’re also introducing new seasonal selections. Keep warm with a cup of hot chocolate, flavored coffees, or soup in bread bowls. Enjoy specialty fall flavors in the form of pumpkin spice churros, festive funnel cakes, gingerbread cheesecake, holiday fudge, and decorated caramel apples. You’ll also find tamales, latkes, deep-fried snow-reos, and much more!
5. Watch one of the largest programmed light shows.
DC Universe lights up in our Rockin’ Universe light show. This spectacular visual display features a giant tree and thousands of lights that make up one of the largest programmed light shows in the region. Every 15 minutes, the lights change colors and patterns, dancing magically to contemporary holiday tunes.
6. Roast your own s’mores treat.
Our toasty fire pits offer a warm respite to chilly nights. As you heat up your hands at Fire & Ice at METRO PARK™ Pub, you can make your own sweet treat! Pick up a S’mores kit to roast a marshmallow over the flames and pile it on a graham cracker with melted chocolate.
7. Sing along to live holiday carols.
The sounds of jingle bells and holiday harmonies are sure to get you in the spirit. Our charming performers create new renditions of your favorite classic yules. Enjoy live street carolers, spectacular acrobatics, family dance parties, DJs, stilt walkers, and dazzling light displays. You’ll hear traditional holiday music like you’ve never heard it before.
