It's my favorite time of the year at the park too. In addition to being able to ride coasters until late December/early January, I like walking around the park and seeing all the decorations and lights.

 

I'm also happy to see Justice League Battle for Metropolis get so many votes for best themed attraction. Every time I enter the queue building and go to the ride, I still can't believe that such a themed ride exists at a regional park.
