Holiday in the Park 2020 is a GO - Map & Details Available!


Recommended Posts

I am disappointed that the park has Holiday in the Park ending on Friday, January 1st.  Last time (in 2015) when New Year's Day was on a Friday they remained open until Sunday, January 3rd.

 

There is just something about going to GA in January that is so cool (outside of the weather!).

1. Six Flags Fun, buy them a dome.

 

2. I could see this as a cost cutting measure as I've heard Six Flags New England's, despite being busy, hasn't been performing to expectations

If we do have Holiday in the Park this year, I would imagine meeting Santa is out.

People will be pissed if they can't. Knoebles is doing a drive through event. Great Adventure could do that. They already reopened the Safari this year so they could do winter lights again.

Wonder how that will work this year with the indoor facilities and attractions being restricted which at that time of the year with the chilly weather you really need them. Lots of people gathering indoors is still a big no no. However, in cold weather people need indoor heated places to warm up for a spell, especially after harsh windchills on the outdoor coasters. Maybe they will set up heated tents?

They could always use the Fest Haus & Picnic Pavilion with heaters in the ceiling but still keeping it "open" on the sides for dining/events. That would give some protection from the weather while still being open for air flow for safety. They used them for Winter Lights.

Depending on if we have the second wave the health experts warn about, I'd say there is still a chance that this doesn't happen at all, especially if they can't do any indoor things

 

Maybe they can find a way to make it a drive-through type event like what they did with Winter Lights in the early 2000s

The only indoor activities will be closed are the show in Showcase Theatre, Houdini, JL, and the Mirror Maze.  All other indoor facilities like restaurants, stores, and arcades can be open (with limited capacity).  Add the outdoor heaters and fire pits and it offers plenty of places to stay warm.  Besides, this is 2020.  It will probably be 83 degrees and sunny.

I was at the park today and Justice League was open! I didn't go on the ride because I didn't particularly feel comfortable and I think I wasn't the only one because Nitro's line was spilling onto the midway whereas Justice League's line was right at the entrance to the indoor queue.

El Toro is officially closed for the rest of the season along with Bizarro, Log Flume (closed all of 2020 season) Kingda Ka, Zumanjaro, and Tango, possibly Bugs Bunny National Park. Should've gotten your last rides for the 2020 season!

Six Flags’ Holiday in the Park® Winter Festival

Will Focus on Delivering Safe, Holiday Thrills

 

Great Adventure will debut Holiday Wine Fest, Charity Food Drive and new festive foods, games, characters, and holiday fun in 2020

 

Jackson, NJ — November 9, 2020 —Six Flags Great Adventure’s spectacular winter festival, Holiday in the Park, will sparkle with more than a million glittering lights, festive foods, thrilling rides, and holiday entertainment with a continued focus on safety. Weekends and select days November 14, 2020 through January 3, 2021, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park will transform into an eye-popping winter wonderland. This immersive and enchanting holiday experience will be bigger than ever before with 14 specially-themed areas. Coordinated sights, sounds, scents, and attractions will give each section a distinct character. The event is included with all active Memberships and Season Passes.

 

“Holiday in the Park has become a family tradition with world-class entertainment for all ages and unparalleled thrills that only Six Flags Great Adventure can provide,” said Park President John Winkler. “Now more than ever before, families are yearning for safe ways to make new and lasting memories together. Six Flags is laser-focused on safety, and our comprehensive, new protocols have demonstrated that we can deliver the fun and thrills our guests expect in a clean, socially distanced, and safe environment.”

 

Opening for its sixth season, Holiday in the Park will debut new attractions in 2020:

 

·         Jolly Jamboree – There’s always a party happening in this new themed section, located in the park’s catering area. Dramatic lighting, traditional wreaths and garland, and decorated trees will adorn this section. Holiday Feastival will serve piping-hot holiday fare. Guests can warm themselves by the fire pit and toast s’mores, shop for great stocking stuffer gifts, play holiday games, or sample seasonal beverages from Holiday Spirits. Guests can even find Santa and Mrs. Claus here until Christmas;

·         Jack Frost – Guests can expect a “chilly” greeting from the master of cold in Snowman City, the newest addition to the character appearances;

·         Illuminated Animals – Paying homage to the amazing animals of the Wild Safari, Holiday in the Park will feature new, illuminated animal figures in newly-themed Wild Lights National Park; and

·         Wild Safari Extended Fall Operation – Next door, the Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure will remain open on weekends and select days through Nov. 29. Specially discounted tickets are available online for the Safari’s longest season in history. Reservations are required.

 

Signature Holiday in the Park attractions include:

 

·         Holiday Magic: A Celebration of the Season ─ Spectacular light show on a five-story-tall tree that dazzles nightly every 30 minutes through eye-popping effects, stirring music and gently falling snow. This magical, majestic tree is located in the heart of the park;

·         Character Appearances by the Royal Court and Holiday Favorites – Holiday queens, kings, princesses, reindeer and toy soldiers come to life throughout the park. Guests can also catch Santa and Mrs. Claus on their visit from the North Pole. Safe social distancing will be enforced.

·         Gingerbread Junction ─ A giant, inflatable gingerbread man welcomes guests to this whimsical section that features peppermint swirl-wrapped trees, the regal Peppermint Princess and dancing lights around the carousel pavilion;

·         Polar Point ─ Stunning, ice-blue trees twinkle with the illusion of falling snow up above, while her highness the Snow King and Queen meets guests below;

·         Joy to the World ─ Tranquil pathway of warmly lit trees, luminaries and stained glass showcasing religious holidays from around the world, plus the dazzling Twinkle Tunnel;

·         Holiday Fire Pits – Six sections of the park feature wood-burning fire pits that warm the soul and are popular spots for toasting s’mores;

·         Holiday Eats – The sweet and savory tastes of the holiday season can be found throughout the park like spiked egg nog, holiday-flavored coffee and hot chocolate, peppermint and mocha fudge, seasonal beers, festive funnel cakes, specialty holiday platters with cranberry sauce, chili bowls, smoked meats, harvest salads and hot soups;

·         Festive Photo Spots – Twinkling mistletoe, massive inflatables, beautifully decorated trees, and Santa’s elaborate home are just a few of the fun photo spots where guests can preserve their holiday memories; and

·         Holiday Giving – Six Flags offers two opportunities to give to those less fortunate. The Holiday Friends plush toy program donates one adorable plush for every plush purchased, and the Holiday Craze Mirror Maze gives $1 of each pass purchased to FULFILL, the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Inc.

 

New Holiday in the Park Special Events

 

Holiday Wine Fest, Nov. 14 and 15 – Guests can enjoy a weekend of coasters, cuisine, and crafters during Holiday Wine Fest. During this memorable special event in the newly-themed Jolly Jamboree area, guests can sample locally-produced wines from eight New Jersey vineyards, wine fest fare from multiple food trucks and get a head start on their holiday shopping with homemade gifts from local artisans.

This event has limited capacity and is expected to sell out. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit https://www.sixflags.com/greatadventure/special-events/wine-fest

 

Holiday Food Drive, Nov. 21 and 22 – With donations needed more than ever due to the pandemic, Six Flags will host a Holiday Food Drive to collect non-perishable food items Nov. 21 and 22. Donations will benefit FULFILL, the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Inc., which serves 300 local food pantries and soup kitchens in the region. Guests who bring at least six items between the hours of 1 and 4 pm will receive a free ticket to the Holiday Craze Mirror Maze, and Six Flags Members will receive an additional 500 reward points.

Requested items include canned goods, granola or cereal bars, fruit cups, individual servings of mac & cheese, baby food, and juice boxes. All items must have their original seal or wrapper, and not require refrigeration.

 

Six Flags launched a safer and faster payment experience exclusively using card and mobile payments. Six Flags accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Apple Pay, Google Pay and debit transactions throughout the entire park. In-park guests can convert cash to a prepaid debit card at one of multiple kiosks located throughout the park. The prepaid card can be used anywhere in the U.S. where VISA is accepted.

^ Cyborg is noticeably removed from the map! It could be the next ride getting removed or it could just be the reason its been closed all year.

I've noticed that they now have been decorating Bugs Bunny national Park. During Hallowfest it was called Corn stalk national Park, and now its going to be called and decorated as Wild Lights national Park. could be a throwback to Winter Lights but with no drive through.

I'd be surprised to see Cyborg removed after just 3 seasons. Why has it been closed all year? Staffing/maintenance issues?

 

Also, what's the coldest it's been up at Great Adventure for HITP? I bet a winter ride on Nitro is a blast!
