Six Flags New England Holiday In The Park Media Day
It’s that time of year again- the snow is starting and the parks are closing here in New England. But wait – Six Flags New England is open? Yes that right! For the first time ever Six Flags New England introduces “Holiday In The Park” and we were invited out to see all they have to offer this Holiday season. Holiday In The Park features 7 coasters: Batman the Dark Knight, The Joker, Mind Easer, Fireball, Thunderbolt and The Great Chase plus a last minute bonus of Flashback. In addition to 7 roller coasters the park is decked out in millions of Christmas Lights and decorations in 8 different areas.
You enter the park through Wonderland Way, where lights cover the buldings and at night dance to the music of the Holiday Magic Light Show ever 15 minutes. Watch below:
If you are there with someone special, step under the Mistletoe at Mistletoe Memory in the Gazebo on Wonderland Way.
Head down Kringle Lane- where you can meet the big man himself at Santa’s workshop
*Reservation is required, or check out the massive 5 story (50 feet) Kringle Lane Tree.
Every night at 5 pm the tree is lit. The ceremony starts off with the Jingle Jammers singing Christmas classics, then some of Six Flags New England’s festive friends come out and soon after Santa shows up. Now its time to light the tree. The tree is powered by a wish a every night by a child who makes a wish on the last ornament.
Watch the ceremony below:
In addition to the Kringle Lane Tree, Kringle Lane is also home to the North Star Tree which is a string light tree with of course the North Star on top.
Sugar Plum Place is geared more towards the little ones. Stop by Take Six for a festive meal or check out the lights of Celebration Station.
It’s Christmas time in the west in Jingle Bell Junction where you can warm up at JB Smokehouse BBQ.
The snow is falling in Snowflake Falls! If you don’t like the snow, step inside the massive 3 story (30 feet) ornament.
Snowflake Falls is home to FROST, the park’s acrobatic show that will leave you frozen. I was absolutely blown away by FROST and it is quite possibly the best show I have EVER seen. You just have to see it to believe it. I am not the only one that loved FROST. Beforehand, it had a massive 30 minute line so head there early to check it out!
Here are some photos from FROST (please note photography is normally not permitted)
Polar Playland is another area dedicated for the little ones. Here, Mrs.Claus tells the story of her pet reindeer.
It isn’t Six Flags without the coasters and Coaster Alley is home to 3 of them.
Grab a S’mores Kit and roast some marshmallows over the fire (select fire pits around the park) or grab a Hot Coco refill cup and enjoy Hot Coco all day though out the park (Most Stands) if need more treats stop by Coaster Candy or Candy Cabin.
Try your hand at some holiday themed games incluing snow ball toss, prize grab and much more. Throughout the park smell the scents of the season with scents by Kringle or take a photo with one of the parks many festive friends, including:
Queen Luminosity Evergreen and Tinsel on Wonderland Way
Chestnut and Cole in Jingle Bell Junction
Holiday Fairy Sprinkle and Gumdrop the Gingerbread Man in Sugar Plum Place
Princess Krystal and Jack Frost in Polar Playland
Plus all your favorite Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo characters decked out for the holidays romming the park
And of course meet the Big Man himself- Santa in Kringle Lane.(Reservations required)
On your way out dont forget to stop by Candy Cane Crossing were you can ride the New England Express or you can upgrade you ticket to a Season Pass so you can keep on coming back to Holiday in the Park or visit again in 2018 to ride Harley Quinn Spinsanity.
