VALLEJO, Calif. — November 12, 2020 — Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Thrill Capital of Northern California, today announced a new, modified holiday event -- Holiday in the Park Lights. A seasonal mix of the animal-focused Marine World Experience, Holiday in the Park Lights is an outdoor event that features themed marine animal presentations, millions of twinkling lights, decorations around the park, and festive food offerings, in a safe and fun environment. Six Flags worked in partnership with its health and epidemiologist consultants to create a holiday experience that meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines. Guests must make reservations to visit and park attendance will be carefully monitored to avoid overcrowding and ensure safe social distancing. Per state requirements, rides will not be in operation.

The health and safety of our guests, team members, and animals remains our highest priority as we open our gates to welcome guests for Holiday in the Park Lights.”
