It's baaaaack! (As long as this isn't an April Fools joke - I don't think it is!)


After a 12? 13? year break it looks like Great Adventure has decided to bring back the Holiday in the Park event for 2015.

No details are available besides the photo and the video below.

Six Flags Great Adventure is really shaking things up for its 41st season, which kicks off April 3.

In addition to the 5 amazing announcements made public last week including a change to Batman: The Ride the Jackson theme park is adding something magical to the mix this year.

Great Adventure is extending its 2015 season with "Holiday in the Park."

According to a release, the holiday spectacular will include millions of glittering lights, dazzling holiday entertainment, delicious seasonal treats, Santa's village, and animals as the summer destination transforms into a winter wonderland.

Snowflakes will fall throughout the park to set the mood for the extended season.

Many of the most popular rides will be up and running, including the SkyScreamer, Carousel, Big Wheel, Parachutes and Tea Cups.

The Adventure Seaport area will be open for children to enjoy.

There will be a massive illuminated tree.

Crazy coasters such as Nitro, Batman: The Ride, The Green Lantern, Superman: The Ultimate Flight, The Dark Knight and Skull Mountain will be open for guests, weather permitting.

Holiday in the Park will debut Nov. 21 and run weekends and select days through Jan. 3, 2016.

"Holiday in the Park will be a winter spectacular on every family's must-do list and is included with every season pass and membership," said Six Flags Great Adventure President John Fitzgerald. "We have invested years of research into making this the most incredible and immersive seasonal experience it can be, combining holiday traditions with thrills that are uniquely Six Flags."

Santa will be in his workshop for photos.

The park will undergo a massive makeover as it transforms from a spot for summer thrills to a piece of the North Pole.

The release states that six areas of the parks will be overhauled to "showcase the world's best holiday traditions ... and bring the warmth of the season to guests in an entirely new way."

The park will be decked out with dazzling holiday lights.

Highlights of Holiday in the Park include light shows, illuminated trees, and photo opportunities with Santa in his workshop.

The park will also feature the smell of fresh pine and crisp peppermint surrounding festive street vendors offering holiday-themed treats.

Entertainment includes a tree-lighting spectacular, grand stage production, live carolers and a nightly finale.

Something to do with Season Pass sales, they want to get as many as possible before Memorial Day for El Diablo, Namtab, and now HitP. Apparently there's going to be a pass structure *similar* to that of what Hersheypark is running.

While I get that I still couldn't believe they released this today.  Wait one more day!  Everybody was wondering if it was real or not lol

This is cool.  The last time they did this it was only in the catering areas and they used the safari for a drive-thru lights event.  If I recall, santa, reindeer, ice skating, and such were all that were offered.  Decorating the park AND opening the rides is awesome.  I do wonder how they'll be able to staff it so I guess we'll see how that goes but to one-up Hershey and keep the coasters running, weather permitting, is a sweet deal.
