Holiday fun at Six Flags over Georgia

If you can’t tell, we love holiday events and activities. One that we haven’t missed since our first visit 3 years ago is Holiday in the Park at Six Flags over Georgia. It’s the perfect combination for those who love holiday cheer and amusement park fun. You have the best of both world at Six Flags over Georgia.

Holiday Decor

The park is lit up with lights from the top to the bottom. Even if you’re not a big fan of coasters and rides, you can still have a great time just walking around viewing the different light displays. They are sure to not disappoint you. Plenty of great area and backdrops to get that perfect holiday photo.

There are at least 4 of these photo backdrops around the park. We always stop to snap a few shots when passing by.


There is more than just lights and coasters at Six Flags over Georgia during the holiday season. You can make your way on the train to the North Pole to visit the Big Guy himself. I recommend doing this first thing, if possible. We didn’t make it to visit him this year but in years past I recall us waiting a while.

I would also recommend making time for the show Because it’s Christmas¬†that plays in the Crystal Pistol Music Hall. The play is about two siblings who are in a rush to send Santa a last minute letter in hopes to bring their family together for Christmas. It’s a great play with awesome musical numbers and a wonderful heartwarming ending.

If you’re going to Six Flags (at any time of the year for that matter) then you’ll definitely want to ride some roller coasters and rides. Besides the water rides, everything else is open. I’d say near the carousel is one of the most magical areas. The lights on the trees and the carousel being lit up by candlelight is truly majestic.

You can also indulge in some sweet holiday treats when visiting Six Flags over Georgia. Like their holiday themed funnel cakes, soups, hot cocoa and S’mores! There are a few fire pits around the park, so don’t be hesitant to stop and get warm by the cozy fire. Also, you can purchase S’more kits right there by the firepits. I personally enjoy our visit to Holiday in the Park every season, it doesn’t even seen right now without a visit.

I would suggest getting there when they open so that you can enjoy more of the park. As always, you have to consider the time it takes to wait in line (but getting a fast pass would take care of that). Especially with the nights getting colder, it’s a good idea to try and knock out a lot of things before it gets too cold. Dress warm (in layers) and bring gloves and a hat. I personally am always cold, so if you’re like me, then come prepared.
