Recently Theme Park Review was invited to preview Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Magic Mountain, this annual event has quickly become a holiday tradition in Southern California, and has returned with all the lights, food, and fun that make this event awesome! The event runs select days through December 31st, check the SFMM website for details and times, remember this event is all about lights, so plan on staying late(HIP officially starts at 5pm.), and bring a light jacket.

Returning are all the great lights throughout the park, including "snow" at Holiday Square at the front of the park. An awesome light show in Rockin' Universe (DC Universe) that is very impressive and should not be missed. Many "Kwerky" characters and tons of blue and greet lights in the Gleampunk District (Streampunk District), and check out this years Kwerkmas show which is even better than last year. New this year is Fire and Ice at the Metro Park Pub, try seasonal beers, make smores, and have some holiday food including Lobster Mac and Cheese! Don't forget Santa's Wild Sleigh Ride VR on The New Revolution, if you haven't done this one, it's one of the best VR experiences out there, ride along with Santa and his reindeer...AWESOME! Snowy Nights in YOLOcoaster Plaza has music, dancing, games, lights, and a live DJ. Winter Wonderland in Rapids Camp Crossing has a festive white and red light path that will lead you strait to Katy's Kettle for some holiday food.

There are so many things going on at this event, but don't forget the food! Holiday Leftover Sandwiches, Lobster Mac and Cheese, Enchilada Soup, Hot Chocolate, Champurrado, Peppermint Brownies, Pumpkin Pie...the list goes on and on. Be sure to pick up a Holiday in the park map on the way in, which has all of the food listed along with the locations they are available at. Remember many of these items are only available during HIP, so try everything!

Okay, since I took a little longer than usual to get this report up, I'm just throwing up a ton of pictures. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment. Okay, pictures...

Great report! The stunt show towards the end of your report looks similar to the Frost show at Six Flags New England.

Okay, that's all I have. I'll tell you that there is not pictures of everything, nor was I able to get to everything, so many things to do, see, and eat. Oh, and Santa too! Thanks to Six Flags Magic Mountain for inviting us and treating us to some of the amazing holiday food offerings. If you have not visited this event, add it to your list, it's on par with most events in SoCal and better than some. You won't be disappointed!

Six Flags actually puts in a lot of effort for Holiday in the Park and they deserve credit. Well done!

Magic Mountain really goes all out for Christmas--looks like a fun event, and I'd even be tempted to try the VR Santa Revolution.

My Hubby and I took our little girl Saturday afternoon/night. We normally do Disneyland but switched things up this year. SFMM defiantly put on a good Christmas display. My little girl was so happy to see all of the lights and was eating the treats like crazy. Not fun having a 3 year old on a sugar hi running around the park. Well Done Magic Mountain!
