Georgia is home to so many wonderful places to visit and experience Christmas this holiday season! We have got thrill seekers covered to those that want an old-fashioned Christmas. Georgia can treat you to a Peachy Christmas!
One of Atlanta’s favorite places to have fun, Six Flags, is now letting people enjoy the park even longer as a family this holiday season. The park has been transformed into a winter wonderland with millions of twinkling lights. If you are seeking a fun-filled holiday-themed attraction, you gotta visit Six Flags over Georgia’s Holiday in the Park! As a parent of children from ages 1 to 19, this is a place where everyone can be entertained. From the children’s rides to the thrill enthusiast rides, this place has got something for everyone.
We recently experienced Six Flags Holiday in the Park, and I can honestly tell you it put us right into the spirit of Christmas! Sometimes you just need a little something to set the tone for the season, and this place did it for us. As we walked through admiring all the twinkling lights, delicious smells, and sounds of the season, we couldn’t help but get our hearts right for Christmas. The holiday season just seems to fill the atmosphere here.
One thing you are not going to want to miss is the ligting of the towering 25-foot Christmas tree located in the front of the park in A Main Street Christmas. This signals the beginning of Holiday in the Park. The tree will be lit by military personnel, police officers, and firefighters, along with their loved ones, at 6 p.m. before Christmas and 5 p.m. after Christmas.
SMORES Fire Pits
Worried about the temperatures this holiday season? Don’t be! You have got plenty of stations to warm up. Plus you can roast marshmallows. They have got all you need to enjoy this fun-filled pastime with your family.
Be sure to pick up the Holiday in the Park insulated coffee mug. They have got delicious hot chocolate just waiting to keep you warm!
For many years my family has made a point of “giddying up” and riding the carousel at Six Flags. The Riverview Carousel, originally built-in 1908, becomes the Candlelight Carousel this holiday season. This carousel features 60 hand-carved horses and several stunning chariots carved with cherubs. All lit up with old-fashioned carnival lights and music, you will be transported to another era.
Magic of the Season
Peppermint Plaza is host to an amazing state-of-the-art light show. Stroll through a tunnel of holiday wonder as you listen to the sounds of Christmas. They play classic holiday songs as well as their own special holiday songs sure to become favorites for those that attend each year. I can literally sit here for hours watching the light show and enjoy the music. It is something you WANT to experience!
One of our favorites areas is Mistletoe Mansion. Many of you may recall Monster Mansion, one of our park’s beloved and enchanting attractions. It has undergone a mistletoe rehab! The picture above does not do it justice by any means! It features dozens of mistletoe strung across the midway, more than 100,000 lights and chandeliers outside the famous Monster Mansion attraction for the most beautiful outdoor holiday ball of all in Georgia It is truly a sight to be seen. Plus, I love seeing the beautiful glistening reindeer outside the mansion. Do not forget to sneak your kiss under the mistletoe!
Crystal Palace Because It’s Christmas Holiday Show
One of the things I enjoy the most about Six Flags is that they offer guests shows. It is not just about riding rides at this theme park. They truly want to immerse you into the season by bringing you entertaining shows that are sure to delight audiences. This holiday they have a special show called Because It’s Christmas. Now I do not want to give away the show because it is truly something you will want to see. What I can tell you is that you will see Jack Frost, Rudolph, Santa and his elves, and one sweet family.
North Pole Express
All-aboard the North Pole Express train ride to see Santa at the North Pole! This magical ride takes you on a journey to the North Pole where Santa and Mrs. Claus are waiting to see you! Here you will have the opportunity to have photos taken with Santa Claus!
Head over to Metropolis Park where it is all lit up with hundreds of blue and white sparkling lights! It is really such a beautiful place to behold.
Take on SUPERMAN: The Ultimate Flight where you’ll feel like you’re flying just as high as Santa and his reindeer as you reach a peak of 115 feet high! Seriously, this is one of my family’s favorite rides! Getting a chance to experience the world through Superman’s eyes is something you gotta experience. During this time of the year, it gives you the perfect glimpse into what Santa Claus might actually be seeing as he flies over rooftops delivering toys to the boys and girls.
Of course, a visit to the park would not be complete without sampling all the delicious food they have to offer! Here are a few of my favorite things that I want you to be sure to experience!
Christmas Inspired Funnel Cakes
Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Pretzels
Grilled Cheese and Speciality Soups
