During the holidays, Six Flags Over Georgia becomes so much more than an amusement park packed with thrill rides. This time of year, the park itself becomes the thrill.
With millions of twinkling lights greeting you to your left, your right, even above your head, you can’t help but light up with holiday cheer, as well.
And if that’s not enough, there are more than 15 holiday-themed sections, 7 live holiday shows and more than 24 rides and attractions.
We attended as part of the media night and barely had time to touch on a third of the fun.
We saw a show at the Crystal Palace—the annual performance of “Because it’s Christmas”—and strolled through ‘A Georgia Christmas’ with lights strung on trees and peach-shaped formations dangling from light poles. We took a ride on the North Pole Express and stepped inside a 15-foot snow globe for pictures with elves.
We walked by Mistletoe Mansion (which is haunted the rest of the year), and Candlelight Carousel, covered in nearly 94-thousand lights and 1200 ornaments. We had to miss a stop with Santa at the North Pole…my crew was more excited about grabbing a few rides. And that was ok with me, because I got to see more of the park, from Rejoice to Peppermint Plaza to the tunnel of wonders—which I think is my favorite spot of all!
