Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience a Magical Night to remember! Nov. 20 – January 31, 2021.

Santa Clarita, Calif. – What a magical night it was at Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience! For diehard theme park aficionados, what a fascinating trek it was to drive along the familiar foot-paths that we’ve come to love in the heart of the Valencia.

Beautiful glittering lights greeted a caravan of cars, trucks and vans filled with passengers who took in the ethereal sights and sounds of a splendidly decked Six Flags Magic Mountain. Reams of tinseled holiday garland, complete with waving toy soldiers, candy canes, top-hatted stilt walkers, victorian gowned greeters, mystically dressed cast members – and even Santa and his sleigh full of elves and toys, ushered in a colorful kick-off to the Holiday season.

The VIP drive-thru event also gave a glimpse of the park’s familiar rides, such as CraZanity, Riddler’s Revenge and JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis. The quieted rides seemed to beckon the drivers through the twinkling crystal covered trees, with a nod and a wink as if to say, “We’ll be back again soon!” Still, I could almost hear the swooshing roller coasters, and happy screams of delight from last December when my family and I strolled the park by foot, braving the brisk winter weather bundled in coats and gloves. Driving by the familiar restaurant hubs evoked memories of chowing on delicious hamburgers and fries, funnel cakes and churros as part of the usual theme park ambience, but for now remaining quietly in repose.

I applaud and thank the creative folks at Six Flags Magic Mountain for opening up our beloved theme park for a nostalgic drive-thru journey into what we’ve missed from spring-break through the usually packed and bustling summer months. We love our Six Flags Magic Mountain and it touched my heart to traverse the old familiar trails, albeit behind the wheel of my car while glancing up at the storied roller coaster loops that await us, reflecting colors of joy, goodwill and optimism for the future.
