Holiday in the Park 2016 Six Flags Magic Mountain


Recommended Posts

Six Flags Magic Mountain invited us to check out this seasons Holiday in the Park event, which has been growing in popularity over the past few years. The decorations and lights start at the park entrance and continue in different locations around the park. Endless numbers of brightly colored holiday lights decorate the park, along with holiday character interactions, music, shows, falling snow, and you can even roast s'mores over a fire pit.

 

There are also holiday food items available throughout the park, including a holiday hot beverage cup that is refillable with hot chocolate or hot apple cider. Holiday treats range from the traditional pumpkin pie, tamales, and gingerbread, to holiday themed park foods like Mint Cookie Crunch Dippin' Dots, Pumpkin Pie flavored shakes, and Cranberry Sweet Chili Wings. A selection of holiday flavored fudge, peppermint bark, and other holiday themed confections is also available if you like your holidays covered in chocolate. Stop by Katy's Kettle for a turkey leg dinner, a Mac n' Cheeseburger, Mac n' Cheese stuffed baked potato...MAC N' CHEESE!!! Remember to get a Holiday in the Park guide map to lead you to all the holiday food.

 

As if the lights, and food weren't enough, they've also included a ton of entertainment. The holiday themed Kwerkmas show in the new Gleampunk District has music, dancing, and acrobatics. Snowy Nights in Full Throttle Plaza includes live holiday music from the Mistletones, Tinsel Toy Dancers, a DJ, and more. The light show in DC Universe with thousands of programmed lights is always amazing, with three different shows to see, one starting every 15 minutes. Holiday Square at the park entrance features Looney Toons character interactions, carolers, and snowfall every 20 minutes. The new Santa's Star Spangled Plaza is located just outside of The New Revolution with stiltwalking toy soldiers, a giant lighted christmas tree, and the new Santa's Wild Sleigh Ride VR coaster, where you take a wild ride with Santa on his sleigh. Of course, remember visit Santa in Winter Wonderland. Again, get the HIP park guide so you don't miss anything.

 

The event takes place November 19-27, December 3,4,10,11,17-24,26-31, and January 1. Holiday in the Park begins at 5 pm. Make sure to add this to your holiday activity list, bring the kid to see Santa, see a show, eat some treats.

 

We got to sample all the Holiday food and experience the great live entertainment. Very impressed and on par with other holiday events in the area. I highly recommend the gingerbread cheesecake, and the hot cider makes it feel like it's holiday time. The VR sleigh ride with Santa is not to be missed! This event truly gets better every year.

 

Thanks to Six Flags Magic Mountain for inviting us to this awesome event! And pictures...

Well, that's all I have, thanks to Six Flags Magic Mountain for putting on such a wonderful event and inviting us to sample and experience all it has to offer. I would also like to thank Jennifer (berryfarm) for helping out, about half of the pictures were hers and she did an excellent job. If you want a holiday even that has little of everything, check out Holiday in the Park, you won't be disappointed! Thanks for looking, leave a comment!

So what was the weather like for HITP? (at Six Flags America when I went for HITP on Sunday . . . . it was about 41 degrees and WINDY)

 

In Valencia it go down to the 60's, which is cold for SoCal.

 

Often times 50's and maybe if you're lucky 40's too but those are pretty rare. But it's 56 now so 50s aren't uncommon.

Thanks for the great photos as always. When I eventually get out west to visit Magic Mountain, I think I'd like to go during HITP, it looks great. All the coasters are open, yes? Sorry if I missed that, this fat kid is too distracted by all the food photos.

This is my first press event for TPR.

I thought SFMM did a wonderful job coordinating this event. The food was good, the goodie bag is cool (I love the ornament) and the staff were really nice.

For me the best part of the event was the Santa's Wild Sleigh Ride VR for the New Revolution! The attention to detail is noticable with a cool story line and crisp graphics.
