One of Atlanta’s favorite places to have fun, Six Flags,  is now letting people enjoy the park even longer as a family this holiday season.  The park has been transformed into a winter wonderland with millions of twinkling lights.  If you are seeking a fun-filled holiday themed attraction, you gotta visit Six Flags over Georgia’s Holiday in the Park!  As a parent of children from ages 1 to 18,  this is a place where everyone can be entertained.  From the children’s rides to the thrill enthusiast rides, this place has got something for everyone.

We recently experienced Six Flags Holiday in the Park, and I can honestly tell you it put us right into the spirit of Christmas! Sometimes you just need a little something to set the tone for the season, and this place did it for us.  As we walked through admiring all the twinkling lights, delicious smells, and sounds of the season, we couldn’t help but get our hearts right for Christmas.  The holiday season just seems to fill the atmosphere here.

Six Flags has thought of everything to keep your family happy from the Peeps Snowman Hot Chocolate to the fires nestled throughout the park to keep your bodies warm and toasty, you will have a great time!

Check out some of our favorites below!

SMORES Fire Pits

Worried about the temperatures this holiday season?  Don’t be!  You have got plenty of stations to warm up.  Plus you can roast marshmallows.  They have got all you need to enjoy this fun-filled pastime with your family.

Holiday City 

One of our “must visit” every time we come to the park is GOTHAM City.  This holiday season you will not want to miss experiencing the spectacular green and purple lights on a 25 foot Christmas tree with 200 brightly lit Batman candles.  This tree is something you gotta see in person!  Plus, you can sit back and watch those daring enough to ride The Joker (like my older children are) or sit back on BATMAN: The Ride for an adventure.   This area is beautiful!

GloHill

A visit to Six Flags would not be complete without heading down to Holiday City to visit Batman and his friends.  We love walking through GloHill to experience the glowing light sticks.  These lights are spectacular!

Candlelight Carousel

For many years my family has made a point of “giddying up” and riding the carousel at Six Flags.  The Riverview Carousel, originally built-in 1908,  becomes the Candlelight Carousel this holiday season.  This carousel features 60 hand-carved horses and several stunning chariots carved with cherubs.  All lit up with old fashioned carnival lights and music, you will be transported to another era.

 

Magic of the Season

Peppermint Plaza is host to an amazing state-of-the-art light show.  Stroll through a tunnel of holiday wonder as you listen to the sounds of Christmas.

Mistletoe Mansion

One of our favorites areas is Mistletoe Mansion.  Many of you may recall Monster Mansion, one of our park’s beloved and enchanting attractions.  It has undergone a mistletoe rehab!  The picture above does not do it justice by any means!  It features dozens of mistletoe strung across the midway, more than 100,000 lights and chandeliers outside the famous Monster Mansion attraction for the most beautiful outdoor holiday ball of all in Georgia  It is truly a sight to be seen.  Do not forget to sneak your kiss under the mistletoe!

Crystal Palace Because It’s Christmas Holiday Show

One of the things I enjoy the most about Six Flags is that they offer guests shows.  It is not just about riding rides at this theme park.  They truly want to immerse you into the season by bringing you entertaining shows that are sure to delight audiences.  This holiday they have a special show called Because It’s Christmas. Now I do not want to give away the show because it is truly something you will want to see.  What I can tell you is that you will see Jack Frost, Rudolph, Santa and his elves, and one sweet family.
