Limited-Time Event Features a Unique Opportunity to Drive Thru the 140-Acre Theme Park While Enjoying More than a Million Dazzling Lights, Themed Areas, and Distanced Entertainment in a Safe, Outdoor Environment
Jackson, NJ — November 23, 2020 — For the first time in its history, Six Flags Great Adventure, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park, will offer a drive-thru experience of its winter spectacular, Holiday in the Park. Featuring more than a million dazzling lights, festive holiday theming, and seasonal music favorites, this innovative, one-of-a-kind, nighttime event will operate Monday through Thursday evenings Nov. 30 through Dec. 17. While the thrill of the park’s iconic roller coasters, festive fire pits, and delicious holiday treats will operate only on weekends, this unique Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience will delight revelers of all ages on weeknights, and offer an exciting way to celebrate the spirit of the season from the comfort and safety of their own vehicles.
“We are proud to debut another way for our guests to safely celebrate the holidays with this unprecedented, magical event,” said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Winkler. “We have successfully transformed the traditional weekend operation of our beloved Holiday in the Park into a new, drive-thru experience during the week. The popularity of our Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure showed us that families are craving ways to create special memories together that are safe and socially distant, and we are honored to welcome them into our theme park winter wonderland. Plus, theme park enthusiasts won’t want to miss this extremely rare opportunity to drive through the park,” he added.
As one of the largest holiday drive-thru events in the Northeast and the only one inside a theme park, the Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience will include 12 immersive, distinctly different areas throughout the 140-acre theme park which will be filled with an exquisite palette of colorful twinkling lights, live entertainment, and festive music. Guests will enjoy distanced greetings from beloved holiday characters decked out for the holidays, popular iconic holiday decorations, a drive-by featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus and their helpful elves, and much more.
Highlights of the new Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience include:
The safety of guests and team members is always Six Flags’ top priority. The new Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience will offer a contactless experience that follows CDC, state, and county health and safety guidelines. To prevent overcrowding and provide proper social distancing, a limited number of cars will be allowed each night.
Event requirements include use of masks if windows are down, no smoking, littering, stopping, or exiting vehicles. Due to the limited size of certain areas and terrain within the theme park, only cars, SUVs, vans, and pick-up trucks are permitted. No busses, RVs, commercial vehicles, dually pick-up trucks, trailers, or motorcycles will be allowed. A maximum speed of three mph, and maintaining a safe distance between cars, will be strictly enforced.
As part of Six Flags’ comprehensive safety procedures, all employees are required to wear masks and are temperature-checked and health-screened each day. Gloves are worn as appropriate, per guidelines. Six Flags encourages guests to plan accordingly for restroom breaks, gasoline, and food. Portable restrooms will be available at the entrance and exit. For the full Holiday in the Park experience, including world-class thrill rides, festive treats, holiday shopping, fire pits, live entertainment and more, guests are encouraged to plan their visit weekends and select days through Jan. 3, 2020.
