Six Ways to Have the Best Holiday in the Park Experience Ever
Make the most of your visit to the park
Your visit to Holiday in the Park should be magical and merry. Plan ahead so you can spend less time making decisions and more time having fun at the park. Here are six great ways for your family to save money, stay comfortable, and enjoy our holiday activities this season.
1. Stay late to view our lights.
The beauty of Holiday in the Park comes to life at 5 p.m. over a million twinkling bulbs light up. Pass through the Six Flags Plaza as an extravagant light canopy shines overhead. Plus, watch as DC Universe illuminates with color and contemporary music in one of the largest programmed light shows on the West Coast. We recommend arriving early in the day, but staying late so you have plenty of time to experience everything.
2. Purchase a souvenir hot cocoa mug.
Enjoy rich hot chocolate all night long with a souvenir hot cocoa mug. When you purchase a refillable holiday cup, you’ll enjoy free unlimited refills on the day you purchase. Plus, you’ll get $1.99 refills every day of Holiday in the Park, so you can save money and stay warm all winter long.
3. Buy your tickets online for the best holiday deals.
Park tickets, parking, meal vouchers, and other services are available for purchase on our website. Not only will you receive the best deals online, but you’ll also save time when you arrive. Print your tickets in advance and head straight to the front gate so you can begin having fun sooner.
4. Be prepared for a chill.
Winter evenings at the park can get a bit chilly, and the air feels much colder as you fly around a roller coaster with the wind in your hair. To make sure you stay comfortable, we recommend wearing layers to prepare for unpredictable weather changes. Bring a jacket, gloves, and hat – even a festive Santa hat is welcome! Rent a locker near the front gate if you need a place to store your belongings during the day. You can also keep warm by snuggling up with loved ones under the bright lights, or get your blood pumping on one of our extreme coasters.
5. Take your family photo with a stunning holiday backdrop.
Our scenic decorations offer a perfect background for your holiday card or souvenir photo. Stop in front of our unique water tree in Six Flags Plaza to take a photo with the dazzling setting around you. Have your picture taken on Santa’s lap for a cherished childhood memory. Plus, dance with the Looney Tunes characters as they pose for photos in their festive holiday attire underneath the twinkling lights.
6. Pick up holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
Skip the department stores and find great one-of-a-kind presents for everyone on your list at our souvenir shops. Browse a large selection of warm seasonal apparel, like park-adorned hoodies, hats, and scarves; seasonal décor like snow globes, ornaments, and figurines; themed novelties including key chains, mugs, toys, magnets, and knick-knacks; plus holiday candy like homemade fudge and holiday themed caramel apples.
