Wilson Family Firsts: New Holiday In The Park Festival at Six Flags Great Adventures #HolidayinthePark

Tis' the season for creating new traditions with the entire family at Six Flags Great Adventures. For the first time ever the theme park debuted it's annual Holiday in the Park, this year - which runs through January 3rd, 2016. We couldn't wait for our day trip in the Mazda 6 to see the millions of glittering lights, dazzling entertaining holiday shows and our favorite Looney Tunes characters to get in the holiday spirit. It was pretty cool to see that this summer destination was transformed into a winter wonderland and I'm sure has been an enjoyable way to spend time with friends and family with the unseasonable warm weather we've been having lately. What better way to spend 70 degree temperatures in December right?

During this visit, since we'd been to Six Flags twice already this year we decided to visit as an escape from the hustle and bustle and just leisurely checked out a few of the 10 new themed areas and enjoyed tasty, seasonal goodies.

Signature Holiday in the Park attractions (included with all season passes and active memberships) include

·         Holiday Magic: A Celebration of the Season ─ Spectacular light show on a 52-foot-tall tree in the heart of the park that dazzles nightly every 30 minutes through eye-popping effects and classic holiday music.

·         Jack Frost’s Magical Christmas ─ Jack Frost’s evil plot to steal Christmas is reversed by the warmth and magic of the holiday season in this live stage show filled with acrobatics, illusions and surprise guests. 
·         Gingerbread Junction ─ Features peppermint swirl-wrapped trees, dancing lights around the carousel pavilion, the Gumdrop Hop dance party and a giant gingerbread man towering above.
·         Joy to the World ─ Tranquil pathway of lit trees, luminaries and stained glass showcasing religious holidays from around the world.

·         North Pole ─ Guests are welcomed into the warmth of Santa’s home for a meet-and-greet and holiday photos by Kodak, plus kids can write letters to Santa, meet a reindeer and build a stuffed toy.
·         Poinsettia Peak ─ Skull Mountain roller coaster has been transformed into a mountain of dazzling red lights with a crimson beauty, the Poinsettia Princess, greeting guests nearby.
·         Treetop Summit ─ Parachute Tower transforms into one of the world’s tallest light trees.

·         Holiday Memories ─ Green, red and gold brighten this section filled with special photo opportunities like Mistletoe Moments, Wishing Tree and With Love giant greeting card, while nearby the Jingle Jammers sing holiday tunes by the fire pits as guests toast s’mores.
·         Stewie the Snowman ─ Guests can pass through a jolly, three-story inflatable in Snowman City.
There's nothing like the smell of sweet and savory tastes of the holiday season filling the air that can be found throughout the park. The holiday menu will bring a smile to your face and ill have your tummy rejoice over the Spiked egg nog, holiday-flavored coffee and hot chocolate, peppermint and mocha fudge, holiday beers, festive funnel cakes with peppermint eggnog and caramel pecan bacon toppings, specialty holiday platters of sliced turkey, smoked turkey leg and chicken platters with cranberry sauce, chili bowls, harvest salads and flatbreads and hot soups that are available in various restaurants. My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about it.
Holiday in the Park also features nearly 30 thrilling rides such as SkyScreamer, Carousel, Big Wheel and Tea Cups. Children can enjoy 11 pint-sized thrills in Whimsical Wonderland. Coaster fans can challenge world-class rides like Nitro, BATMAN™: The Ride, THE GREEN LANTERN and SUPERMAN – Ultimate Flight, THE DARK KNIGHT Coaster and Poinsettia Peak.
