A family-favorite tradition, Stone Mountain Christmas is Atlanta’s most heartwarming celebration filled with festive music, millions of dazzling lights, captivating shows and visits with popular holiday characters. Guests can wander through the new Musical Frosted Forest surrounded by beautiful lights, sights and sounds of the holiday season. Marvel as the town lights up during the Enchanted Tree Lighting Ceremony and catch Santa’s flight through the sky each night before the Snow Angel’s Christmas Parade. The all-new parade features seven new floats and a cast of 40 performers including 10-foot tall candy canes, walking snow globes, Christmas trees and more.
Take in live musical shows and enjoy special meet and greet opportunities with some of your favorite North Pole friends including Santa, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer® and Bumble. Hear the true meaning of Christmas aboard the Sing-A-Long Christmas Train and end your evening with Angelina the Snow Angel as she flies above the town and creates one last magical snowfall. Discover Stone Mountain Christmas Nov. 16, 2019 through Jan. 5, 2020 every weekend and school holidays.
Returning for an exciting 12th season Nov. 16 until Feb. 23, Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park is a winter wonderland of snow-filled fun and adventures. Situated on what is commonly known as the “Laser Lawn” throughout warmer months, Georgia’s largest snow park features several feet of actual snow sculpted into 12 single or double rider lanes, four family tube lanes that can accommodate as many as eight passengers in giant 10-foot tubes, and four lanes at the new Dare Devil Plunge dark slide.
Guests 36 inches and taller can scream their way down the Avalanche Alley family tube ride and the new Dare Devil Plunge, while those 48 inches and taller can take on a single tube lane. The Snow Zone play area is open for younger kids to tube, make the ultimate snowmen and snow angels, experience periodic “snowfall” and more.
Thrill-seekers can conquer the all-new Dare Devil Plunge dark-tunnel ride, Snow Mountain’s tallest, fastest slope ever. Launch down the hill from over three stories high, reaching speeds of up to 30 mph while you zip through a 150-foot tunnel of lights. Take the plunge with a friend in a double tube, or slide solo in a single tube on this daring new ride. Stay into the evening for Galactic Snow Tubing, an out-of-this-world nighttime experience with lasers, lights and music.

Give your family the gift of hitting the slopes on a 400-foot snow-covered hill in single tubes, double tubes, and even family-sized tubes. Then, head over to the Snow Zone where you’ll find tons of real snow and frosty activities everyone will enjoy. It will be a season to remember at Stone Mountain Park.
