Six Flags Over Texas Brings New Additions to Long-lasting Traditions
A safe and family-oriented holiday event begins November 20
Six Flags Over Texas, the Thrill Capital of Texas, is re-styling its 35-year Holiday in the Park tradition by transforming the park with more than 2 million twinkling lights a thrilling sled adventure on real snow, and the introduction of some new holiday traditions including Mystic Acres Holiday Trail. Of course, no holiday season would be complete without a visit with Jolly Ol’ St. Nick in Merry Marketplace Holiday in the Park has something for everyone!
Guests can enjoy:
Deep in the Heart of Christmas!: It’s a Texas-sized winter wonderland with more than 8.5 miles of mini lights; nearly 14,000 square feet of net lights; a giant Texas flag light canopy over 100 feet in length; Texas-sized ornaments, boots, and a glittering star.
Merry Marketplace: Families can safely visit with Santa at Santa’s Outpost; roast marshmallows over an open flame at the Campfire Holiday S’Mores fire pits; and sip hot cocoa and nibble Red Velvet Cookies at The Peppermint Parlor.
Silver Star Holiday Carousel: Experience the youthful joy of our brightly lit and garland-decorated carousel.
Holiday Tree of Trees Light Spectacular: Towering at nearly 60 feet tall, this combination of 70 Christmas trees is trimmed with thousands of lights dancing magically with orchestrated precision.
Mystic Acres Holiday Trail: Enter the hay trail to meet magical characters like Sugarplum Fairy, Sammy the Reindeer Trainer, and many more! On your journey, you can visit with each of the characters for a family-friendly photo-op.
The Frosty Snowhill: Guests glide down the real snowy hillside wonderland adventure as they sled down a hill made with real snow.
Six Flags Holiday Railroad: Behold the return of the Six Flags Railroad! Enjoy the majestic scenery of the park while you ride our authentic and historic steam-engine train, decorated with festive lights and evergreen garland.
Shows Galore!: From Scottish bag pipes to Mariachi trumpets and Polynesian hula dancing, visit each stage—the Stage at Gotham City, BoomTown Stage, Merry Marketplace Stage, and Mexican Gazebo—for a variety of traditional and non-traditional holiday music and cheer that will light up your spirit.
