Six Flags Magic Mountain Lights Up the Season by Introducing HOLIDAY IN THE PARK® Event

 

VALENCIA, Calif., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Magic Mountain, the "Thrill Capital of the World," announced today that Six Flags Entertainment's annual holiday extravaganza — Holiday in the Park® — will debut at the Valencia theme park on November 28 and run through January 4, 2015. Several areas of the park will be transformed into spectacularly-lit winter wonderlands for guests to enjoy this holiday season.

 

"We are thrilled to bring this magical experience to our Six Flags Magic Mountain guests during the holidays," said Bonnie Rabjohn, park president. "We are creating a winter spectacular that will support our thrill brand and be uniquely Six Flags Magic Mountain, complete with over one million lights, holiday entertainment, carolers, and seasonal treats. Holiday in the Park® will offer a special twist on favorite traditions that our guests will treasure for years to come."

 

Several areas of the park will feature time-honored and unique holiday themes. While the visual look of the park will take on the distinct spirit of the holidays, guests will experience quaint and authentic touches that will remind adults of their fondest childhood memories, and create impressions for children that will last a lifetime.

 

The Six Flags Plaza area will transform into a kaleidoscope of lights, featuring hundreds of thousands of lights on trees, buildings and attractions. An array of water and lights will create a one-of-a-kind, holiday tree in the fountain area while carolers welcome guests as they enter this magical scene. A holiday show featuring contemporary music and dancing will be spotlighted on the Full Throttle stage. Crafts and spiced-up holiday treats will be the focal point in the 'Winter Wonderland" Mining Town area of the park and a classic Santa Claus visiting area will anchor this picture-perfect setting. DC UNIVERSE will feature a dazzling spectacle-of-lights show featuring contemporary holiday music set to one of the largest programmed light shows on the West coast with millions of lighting variations programmed using tens of thousands of lights.

Park guests can enjoy all the wonderful aromas of the season while satisfying their appetite and quenching their thirst with hot chocolate, cider, custom fudge, holiday-inspired funnel cake flavors and many other traditional favorites.

 

"We are taking a successful Six Flags branded event which has been very popular at four of our other Six Flags parks, and creating the Southern California version, combining the traditions of the holidays with a unique twist, beautiful displays of lights, holiday magic and seasonal surprises," said Rabjohn.

Out of the "Big 3" Six Flags parks (SFMM, SFGam, SFGadv), it seems that Great Adventure has been receiving a little less attention in the past few years. Not saying they've been overlooked at all, but SFMM already has what we're getting this year, and SFGam has gotten 2 coasters since we got our last relocation. 2012 was certainly great for the park, but not the investment of a coaster. It's time for a little focus on Great Adventure!

Yes, it would be nice to have the park open in November and December even if it's only select rides.

^^^ I wouldn't put it that way- before 2012 the park had almost no family rides due to all the removals of the late 2000s. The new rides in '12 and '13 weren't as expensive as a coaster, but they were what we needed more. To me Zumanjaro is the better version of Lex Luthor since ours will be able to have more cars and will be taller due to the structure it is attached to.

 

I agree it would be nice to have the park open in November/December, maybe in November they could even operate some of the coasters.

I would love the park be open on the holidays. They would however need more indoor rides (ex: interactive dark ride), a 4D show(s), and some indoor musical shows

If they opened I would like to see Adventure Alley, Safari Kids, Adventure Seaport, Lakefront and Fantasy Forest and Movietown open. For indoor rides that would give them Houdini, Skull Mountain, TDK plus all of the outdoor flats and kiddie rides in that area except maybe Sky Screamer if it's too cold for it to run. Maybe they could have Batman and Nitro open weather permitting too. I think it would do well since Holiday events seem to be popular. Christmas Town at Busch Gardens Williamsburg gets to capacity some days and Christmas Candylane at Hershey can also get very crowded

^ That's exactly what I was thinking when I thought about the idea of a holiday event at our park. If TDK, Skull, and the flats in that section were open it would be a cool event. If Nitro and/or Batman were open, it would immediately give itself an advantage over other events in the area.

I agree with Password121. It does seem like Gadv has been getting the short end of the popular stick. We've seen the additions of things we need but neither Great America or Magic Mountain need coasters and yet they've been getting them left and right while were losing rides. On the other hand, We as Gadv fans cant really complain when we've been spoiled since 2000. Maybe it's our turn to feel what other parks felt. I just hope better things are in our future like special events (Holiday in the Park) and shows (illuminate) and even new themed areas (Full Throttle Plaza/DC Universe)
