Holiday in the Park is back at Six Flags Great Adventure once more for festive cheer around the new year. We visited Six Flags Great Adventure this past weekend to see what park-goers can expect. Six Flags does a great job decorating for the holidays with lights everywhere you look and, once the sun sets, it really comes alive with the winter motif. There are campfires set up throughout the park for s’mores, plenty of winter-themed photo ops, and the food and entertainment options become holiday-inspired.
From the eyes of an eleven year-old, here are some reasons to love Holiday in the Park at Six Flags: Of course, rides are front and center and new this year is “The New Jersey Devil” roller coaster. I liked this coaster because it had multiple inverts and a steep drop. Also, it is a single rail coaster which means there is just one seat per row and the train of cars rides on one track. Finally “The New Jersey Devil” is the world’s tallest, fastest, and longest single rail coaster. When we visited there was no line and you could just walk on to ride.
The second reason why I like Six Flags Holiday in the Park is the food and ‘Frost’ show. I enjoyed the food because the ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, mac and cheese, and salad were all tasty and not your typical theme park food. Though, the biscuits weren’t as good as we expected. In ‘Frost’ there are many circus acts including trampoline jumpers which were personally my favorites. The other acts included dancers, a yo-yo pro, Cyr wheel (person spinning in giant hoop) performer, and wheel of death daredevil (not the most appropriate name but very crazy).
A few other things I suggest you do are the mirror maze, go shopping, and take pictures with many holiday characters such as Jack Frost or Tweety. Also some other rides I liked are The Joker, Swashbuckler, and Justice League Battle for Metropolis. These are some reasons why we enjoyed Holiday in the Park.
Six Flags Great Adventure Holiday in the Park actually comes in two flavors this year: The first is the walk-through experience inside the theme park. Great Adventure is also offering drive-through experience for those of you not quite ready to brave the theme park yet. Tickets for both experiences, which run from now until January 2, 2022, are available now at the Six Flags Great Adventure website.
