Six Flags Magic Mountain lights up the holiday season with the return of the beloved winter extravaganza—Holiday in the Park—select days November 20 through January 2. Revelers of all ages will be delighted as the park transforms into a dazzling winter wonderland with more than two million twinkling lights in eight uniquely themed areas.

The magic of Holiday in the Park begins at 5:00pm on select nights throughout the 125-acre park amidst the thrilling collection of world-class coasters and family attractions. From festive entertainment and musical light displays, to delicious seasonal treats and limited- edition holiday-themed gifts and souvenirs, it’s a holiday spectacular for all to enjoy.

“We are excited to be celebrating the magic of the season with the return of our annual holiday event,” said Park President Don McCoy. “Following last year’s successful, first-ever Holiday in the Park Drive-thru event, it feels particularly meaningful to return to the Six Flags holiday traditions our guests have come to love and expect. To commemorate this important occasion, we’re expanding Holiday in the Park by adding even more lights and new theming around the park, elevating the thrilling sights and sounds of the holidays in a truly captivating way,” added McCoy.
