New England’s largest holiday celebration will debut as Six Flags New England decks the halls in a dazzling display of lights, sights, and sounds for its inaugural holiday extravaganza. Holiday in the Park at Six Flags New England offers an entirely new and unique holiday celebration experience unlike anything seen before. Boasting over 50 rides, shows, and attractions, this winter season just got so much cooler.
Not only will you celebrate alongside your favorite Looney Tunes characters dressed in their Christmas-best, but at Holiday in the Park you have the opportunity to meet toy soldiers, sing along with our roaming and charismatic carolers, take a peek at what’s hiding under the tree with our ebullient elves, and visit the North Pole, where you can meet the most famous couple of all – Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus!
Once you’ve made your holiday rounds, make some time to immerse yourself in one of the countless electrifying light displays. Take in the breathtaking sights and sounds synchronized to your favorite holiday tunes! Share a moment with that special someone underneath a stunning string of mistletoe, or gather with family and friends around a crackling holiday fire pit, where you can warm up while watching a choreographed light show or cook s’mores to perfection.
