This is more of a card, or brochure, but it's holiday/park-related and semi-historical. Below you'll find a list of events and the operating schedule for the second annual Holiday in the Park event, which began at Six Flags Over Texas in 1985.

Here's an oldie from Six flags over Georgia. It includes the mini-mine train which has long since been gone.

^ I wish they didn't take out Mini Mine Train. It looked like a decent kiddie coaster. Ofcourse, I'd ride it just for the credit!

Well I don't remember much about riding the Mini-Mine Train, but it sure was cool to have a pint size version of the Dahlonega Mine Train. I've always loved that last drop into the tunnel on Dahlonega...one of my favorite moments on any mine train anywhere!

I'll let Restoca cover the holiday themed postcards while I am going to stick with the mine train theme for a bit.

^ Wow, look at all that red and green! It never occurred to me that a Santa beard can look... even creepier at 60mph...

And one for Shane: this scene would look a bit more like Christmas if there were some reindeer pulling those sleighs.

The River King Mine Train at Six Flags over Mid-America. I am not sure if this is the one that is still at the park or the one that was sold to Dollywood and then to Magic Springs...anyone know?
