Enjoy a Magical Experience at Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Texas! #MySixFlags #SixFlagsOverTexas #HolidayinthePark #SixFlagsMemories

The holiday season is my favorite time of year! In today's post, I'll tell you about one of the best holiday events that you'll want to visit - Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over TexasThey have something for everyone this holiday season!   The park has been transformed into a winter wonderland that provides a whimsical experience for families enjoy the beautiful lights, ride the train, shop at the holiday market, enjoy hot cocoa and s'mores, watch the incredible show at Southern Palace, write and mail letters to Santa while chatting with his friendly elves, take photos with Santa, enjoy the rides, and more! Six Flags Over Texas has generously packed the park with many rides, shows, and activities that will keep you busy and help you to create happy holiday memories. Walk down Peppermint Path, Merry Lane, and other sparkling areas to get the fun rides, shows, restaurants, and shops.  I'll share some highlights from our recent visit so that you are able to see the incredible value that they pack into admission and how they make the world feel more magical!

Let's start with the basics:

We visited on a Saturday and arrived around 2pm.  We had plans to go straight to Santa, but were derailed because there were so many fabulous decorations, attractions, and activities along the way! For instance, the Singing Reindeer in the Blacksmith shop were so delightful that we couldn't help but stop to watch the performance!

The Singing Reindeer, Johnson's Creek Critter Corral, street performers, and hot cocoa stops made our stroll to find Santa extra magical! When we finally reached Santa and his elves, they were wonderful! We wrote our child's name on a ticket before we entered so that Santa could welcome him by name when he was ready.  I think that Six Flags Over Texas has the best Santa in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro. The photographer is fantastic too. They offer a variety of photo packages for sale. Santa's jolly presence was magical to our son! If you have a shy child, the Santa at Six Flags Over Texas was especially kind and talented to make our shy little boy feel more at ease. It was a nice touch that Santa called him into the room by name and that he was patient when he noticed that our son was nervous to meet the real Santa! Our son was a man of few words. He forgot to tell him what he wanted for Christmas because he lost his words during the magical experience. It was very sweet. Luckily, Six Flags Over Texas had us covered with another lovely area to write and mail letters to Santa! 

Santa's elves set up a beautiful room for children to write and mail their letters!

There is plenty of space for little ones to practice their best handwriting!

My son was thrilled to write his letter!

He was also excited to mail the letter. Again, I don't want to spoil too many surprises, but he was lucky that a couple of elves taught him yo-yo tricks.  What's amazing is that this "Special Letters to Santa" experience was included in the cost of admission! You don't have to pay anything extra to write and mail a letter and hang out with friendly and energetic elves!  The room, actors, and everything was truly magical to my little guy! 

Bugs Bunny Boom Town is also ready to welcome children for the holiday season. All of their iconic rides were running when we visited. They also had a nice hay maze with festive decor! 

Every turn revealed new festive statues! Again, this is all included with your admission!

My favorite part of our visit was the Christmas show at Southern Palace. This dazzling show was included in admission! 

I want to highlight the incredible value that this is included with your admission.  The show included all of my favorite Christmas songs and great choreography. 

Of course, another highlight is that they put a special Texas twist on the show to make it near and dear to our Texan hearts!

After a couple of hours, the sun went down and we were able to enjoy the sparkling holiday lights!  There must be millions and millions of twinkling lights throughout the park!  While this may be controversial, I think that the best way to enjoy the magical lights is to take the train ride. We were able to see many different views of the park.  (When my boys are older, I may join the thrill seekers in reconsidering my preference because I bet that the lights look incredible from some of the high rides!)

I'll always treasure the memories of getting hot cocoa and hopping on the train with my husband and boys! It felt wonderful to see their reactions and excitement as we rode the train!  

My kids also love the Silver Star Carousel near the park entrance. The view is beautiful in the evening with the holiday lights!

The Chaparral Antique Cars offer a family friendly experience to slow down and drive an old fashioned car on a track that guides you through beautiful holiday lights. Of course, we have a rule that our youngest child gets to drive which makes it extra exciting for him to take a turn of driving us all around!

I thought that you may like to know that there are thousands of twinkling lights and holiday decor to make this ride extra special for the holiday season.

They even have a light tunnel that is incredible when you are there in person!

This year, Six Flags created their first ever Holiday Market.  We loved strolling through the Holiday Market for festive food and shopping! The Holiday Market is sure to get you into the holiday spirit!

We visited JB's Smokehouse Barbeque for dinner. This is our favorite restaurant at the park. I took a photo of this sign because I wanted to highlight that Six Flags paid meticulous attention to detail when it came to holiday decor. Notice that even this restaurant sign has JB with a Santa hat! The holiday decor is everywhere! 

My oldest son loves the BBQ Brisket Sandwich and waffle fries! He always looks forward to this meal!  He paired it with hot cocoa for the holiday season!

My youngest son loves their Kid's meal that comes with chicken nuggets, apple juice, a fruit cup, and Goldfish crackers.  Both of their meals were great!

For dessert, we enjoyed S'mores! Six Flags has fire pits distributed around the park for you to purchase S'mores kits to roast. The kits are $5/each and include everything that you need to make your dessert!

My family loved these warm, rich, and gooey S'mores!  I think that we'll always remember walking around the park in the cool winter air with hot cocoa and S'mores!

The Holiday Market also offers many other holiday menus. Some examples include a traditional meal with ham, special mac-and-cheese, bread bowls with soup, peppermint fudge, elaborate hot cocoas, and more! (Visit here for a long list of dining options!)  

The Six Flags Over Texas Holiday Market also offers many shops that are stocked with festive items!

They have plenty of items to keep you festive and warm!

They have many shirts to make you smile!  (I can't help but sing the song in my head when I see these shirts!)

They have plenty of holiday stuffed animals for little ones to love!

They even have silly hats to make your kids giggle!

Of course, when you stroll through the Holiday Market, you'll enjoy thousands and thousands of sparkling lights and decor!

You may also come across the Merry Carolers as you stroll through the Holiday Market! Again, the beautiful lights, decorations, and watching the carolers is all included in your admission.

Six Flags over Texas truly put a Texas twist on the holidays. My family will always treasure the special memories. If you are lucky to live in Texas, consider gifting your children the experience of Six Flags Holiday in the Park! The park provides many opportunities to create happy childhood memories.  I also think that it's worthwhile if you have holiday visitors and want to share a special holiday experience together!
