It's going to be quite packed. I normally avoid that place like the plague on weekends, no matter what time of year. I'm actually going on a week night before Thanksgiving...lol

Also, be aware that the back of the park where Superman, Justice League, Great American Scream Machine and Blue Hawk aren't open for Holiday In The Park (this year).

We go every year on Black Friday & Saturday and it's never really crowded at all, it's one of the most peaceful times to go in my opinion.

Metropolis Park should be open - it was operating during last year's HitP and furthermore, they have already installed the bases for the multicolor crystal holiday decorations in front of Justice League. Blue and white Christmas lights are also now installed on some of the buildings in that area.

Scream machine, Blue Hawk, and all of Lickskillet will be closed. In fact, as soon as Fright Fest is over they will likely begin site work on Pandemonium and the new Screampunk District where Camp Slasher is currently located.

I was just going by the rides listed to be open on the park's website/event page:
https://www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia/special-events/holiday-in-the-park-event
Superman and Justice League aren't listed to be open on there. I knew they were open last year since JL was new, but this year they have Twisted Cyclone open. Perhaps it was left off if it indeed will be open?

Six Flags is the only company I've ever seen that has their web team build websites as they're live (allowing incorrect information to be seen by potential guests and indexed by search engines). They also like to take old verbiage and re-use it. Since Superman wasn't advertised for the first few Holiday in the Park events even though it ended up running I would bet that they just copied and pasted some old stuff, deleted the text about Georgia Cyclone and wrote the new thing for Twisted Cyclone up top without even thinking about Justice League and Superman.

Don't read into the website too much. If they're putting up Christmas lights by Justice League then that's your answer. If you listened to the Six Flags website about Holiday in the Park then Six Flags Great America (the one in Chicago, that's not a typo) is running Mind Eraser, Houdini, Thunderbolt, Wild One and a bunch of water slides for Christmas and Six Flags New England is breaking out Mayor Slayer and a bunch of demons for Holiday in the Park (oh, and they're bringing back Buzzsaw). Great Adventure's Christmas sea lion show should be fun too...

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Was at the park last night. Surprisingly light crowds. Most coasters were walk-on.

Only Batman and DDD had much of a line and that was late, after 8.

The performers were not out like they were back in late Sep either. Lots of closed food stalls as well.

I know it was Tue, but expected it to be busier the night be fore Halloween.

It was nice not having to wait much and rode all coasters except Scorcher. Could gave done a lot more but we just took out time and looked around the shops a lot.

Longest wait was for funnel cake up front (only one open) at 9:00.

Visited this past Sunday - it was a great day for rides as the park was fairly empty. With no seasonal events or shows to distract us, we concentrated on rides and using our dining pass. Interestingly, the park is wasting no time removing all Fright Fest props and decorations and swapping them out for Holiday in the Park. Last year on this same weekend, the park looked like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" but this year the park seems way ahead of the curve as HitP begins in less than 2 weeks.

There has been some confusion as to what sections of the park will be closed off for 'Holiday' and furthermore whether Metropolis Park near the back, including Justice League and Superman would be operating. This map confirms that only Lickskillet, including Blue Hawk and Scream Machine will be closed off but nothing else. The website is incredibly inaccurate as pointed out in earlier posts.

Another oddity: the Lickskillet area is open this weekend and next before it closes for the season as HitP begins. The park map signs in these areas have been updated with this same HitP map (pictured below) with the Lickskillet area omitted. There were a few confused guests staring at the map, trying to navigate this area with no mention of the area in which they were standing!

Anyway, the zombies have returned underground as Santa's elves have taken over. I can't wait for the fun to begin on November 17th - my birthday too!

^Thank you for posting this! Glad to see Superman and Justice League are being included. At this point nearly the entire park will be operating which is awesome!

Can I park my donkey here?

Yeah that section will be open for HITP, they have the light bulbs screwed into the slots on the buildings.

Weird enough, Screamscape has received interesting info that the park has responded well to twisted cyclone this summer and that the park is looking at adding a coaster in both 2020 and 2021!!! What in the Uber heck?! Sources tell them that we could be looking at an S&S free spin near Superman and a possible launched coaster from S&S or Premier (comparison was to Maxx Force coming to SFGA)! If all signs point to yes I wonder how they will get past the whole SFOG not being able to support a launched coaster due to power related issues or whatever have you? Interesting.....
