Six Flags Great Adventure — which is a little over an hour away from NYC — always puts on a fabulous “Holiday in the Park” celebration, and this year they are bringing it back in a totally socially distant format.
There will be 12 immersive areas decorated with over a million glimmering lights, plus holiday music, visit from Santa, and more!
The first-ever “Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru” is taking place Monday through Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. beginning Monday, November 30 and going through December 17. Tickets are only $14.99 per person (they go on sale this Wednesday, Nov. 25), and reservations are required.
Here are a sample of experiences, as shared on their website:
- Holiday Memories: Traditional red, white and green décor evokes the warm memories of the holidays in this charming section featuring a glistening tree, festive wreaths, and glowing mistletoe balls swinging gently from the trees above;
- North Pole: This section transforms into a kaleidoscope of color with Santa’s House – completely engulfed in lights – anchoring the center while two massive nutcrackers stand guard outside, and dancing lights travel around the Bumper Cars pavilion;
- Polar Point: Guests pass the 15-story Big Wheel, illuminated in lavender, to enter a world of brilliant, ice-blue trees offering the illusion of falling snow;
- A Main Street Christmas: Located in the heart of the park, this Main Street reminiscent of a colonial Christmas is home to a spectacular, five-story, LED tree and gently-falling snow;
- Gingerbread Junction: This feast for the eyes features the Carousel pavilion’s exciting light show, peppermint swirl-wrapped trees, and giant, peppermint light projections;
- Joy to the World: Next, the warm, yellow glow of wrapped trees frame tranquil luminaries highlighting religious holidays from around the world along the still, moonlit Great Lake. Then, guests will journey over massive snowflake light projections under dramatically illuminated trees and continue through the dazzling Twinkle Tunnel;
- Snowman City: Standing tall – extremely tall — the jolly, three-story inflatable snowman known as Stewey welcomes guests to Snowman City, punctuated by bright white lights and shimmering tinsel
There’s a three mile per hour speed limit and if any windows are open, those in the car must wear face coverings.Find out more here!
