The state mandate against California theme parks reopening remains in place, but one popular site has some plans for the holidays. Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia north of Los Angeles today announced its “Holiday in the Park Drive-thru Experience,” which will run on select nights from November 20-January 3.
The pandemic-friendly family experience will include eight distinct areas throughout the park with millions of twinkling lights choreographed to festive seasonal music, beloved holiday characters decked out for the holidays, iconic Holiday in the Park decorations and a drive-by featuring Santa Claus and his elves.
Online reservations and advance tickets will be required for the attraction, which will open at 6 p.m. on November 20-29; December 4-6, 11-13 and 18-3; and January 1-3.
Here are the mandated safety guidelines, which are based on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Appendix G in conjunction with Six Flags Magic Mountain policies:
