It is $5.  Season Pass and Membership is $4.  $1 from each ticket is donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County.

 

Pretty hard to feel cheated for that price, but I'm sure someone will. 

 

Love this event.  Just wish they could put a small rink in somewhere for ice skating.

I went to Holiday In The Park Opening Day.. It was fun. They had a good amount of rides although I got stuck on SkyScreamer. I felt like Kingda Ka could've been open though, it wasn't that cold outside. I liked all the light props. There were absolutely no waits for ALL the coasters. They were basically walk-ons. I went in the mirror maze for $8 because i had two people in my party. The maze was $5 for normal guests, and $4 for season pass holders and membership members. The maze was cute. we got basically stuck towards the end, and a little elf came into the maze and lead us out. It was fun. Nitro in the back of the train is the best because you literally fly out of your seat on those airtime hills. I literally almost lost my hat I had on the first drop. Superman was fun too. All the rides were fun and thrilling. We saw a couple of shows. We saw the Hotsy Totsy, and the Tree Lighting Show. Believe it or not, I saw a lot of people with those hot beverage mugs. It's for coffee and hot chocolate. If you don't know the price it is $10.99 for one cup, $9.99 For two, and $8.99 for three. The parachute ride was open, in which they used to have lights on it last year. They had character meet and greets throughout the whole park. And they did not have the red string lights on skull mountain  surprisingly, just red spotlights. But overall it was fun and I will definitely visit again

Unless I have missed them, I think the park should have both radio and TV commercials to promote Holiday in the Park. So many people are surprised to learn the park is open this time of year when I tell them.

That may be intentional to cap crowd size considering how understaffed they are.

I remembered when joker opened we filmed a ‘winter’ commercial but it was never used. Only ads I’ve seen are Facebook and Instagram.

Great Adventure has one of the least interesting/worst park social media presence ever, so Facebook and Instagram isn't helping them much either.

That's exactly the same for me, on its fourth season people still don't really know about it at all!

Yeah, they really need to get on this.  Their social media game is abysmal.   I don't know if they need to contract with some influencers or just high a college-aged marketing intern and hand over the reigns.  I always get the impression that the person handling it doesn't quite "get" how the various platforms work.

They can be playing the hell out of that song from the tree show.  I heard it two weeks ago and it's still rattling around in my head.

I have only been there once but checking Queue Times almost every day, it looks like crowds have been better than expected with the cold weather. Tonight Justice League was showing a 45 minute wait and the Skyway a 20 minute wait even with temperatures under 30 degrees. I would have thought everything would be a walk on in that weather.

I was there lastnight (temps hovering around high 30’s) and while the park was pretty empty overall, definitly longer wait times for JL & Skyway than i would have imagined. Walk-ons for Nitro, TDK , BTR and basically everything else that was running. Loooong lines in Granny’s for food though, prob cause it was nice & warm inside. We totally forgot about the defunct Panda-now-generic holiday eatery, which would have been warm too, next visit we’ll try it if its not too packed.

That stinks, I know Sesame Place and Storybook Land will both be open Friday, but I have done both of there Holiday in the past. It was Down to Hershey Park and Great Adventure and we wanted to keep it close due to the Rain, but I guess Hershey Park it is. Thanks
