Recently we had the opportunity to check out the Christmas spectacular at Six Flags Great Adventure, “Holiday In the Park” . After premiering just a few short years ago, this event has quickly become a not to miss holiday event and easily our favorite Christmas event in the North East.
We'll also have a quick look at Justice League: Battle for Metropolis

Since this special time of year is all about spending time with your loved ones and families, we traveled with our preschooler and kindergartener. While we love Six Flags collections of world class roller coasters and rides, this event is so family friendly that we had a wonderful time just enjoying the different holiday attractions.
Walking into the park your are greeted by an incredible Christmas tree that magically comes alive every 30 minutes with dancing lights and festive music.. This is not to be missed.
Your little ones can meet Santa (they do a great photo op here too which is much better than most mall Santa set ups), send a letter to the North Pole, listen to the spectacular live singers, and even roast s’mores at one of the many numerous fire pits. If all Great Adventure offered was this and the spectacular light displays, it would be a top notch event, but as a special Christmas gift for all of us, you also have a collection of top notch coasters to ride between all the merriment.
It should be noted as well that the Joker does run during this event..
We also got a look at Justice League construction. Looks to be about as far along as Magic Mountain's. But since this park is going to be closed for a few months this is likely the last look we'll get until it opens in Spring.
Thanks for reading, we hope you all enjoyed our look at Holiday In The Park at Six Flags Great Adventure. Thanks again to the park for having us out to check out the event. We can't wait for next season!!
