"Our Six Flags Over Georgia family is proud to present a holiday spectacular sure to create memories for guests of all ages for years to come," said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel.

Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Georgia features 10 holiday-themed sections, many of the park's most popular rides, specialty holiday food and live shows. This all-new celebration transforms the park into a winter wonderland with dazzling Christmas trees, exclusive holiday shows and many of the park's most popular rides from November 22 through January 4, 2015 on select days.

Visitors to the park will be greeted at the entrance with a light canopy featuring 165,000 lights, more than 15,000 feet of garland, artificial snow and a huge Christmas tree with holographic ornament technology. A magical train ride through 140,000 twinkling lights on the North Pole Express, will take kids to see Santa Claus, where they can leave their Christmas wish list and tell Santa how good they've been this year. And to top it all off, the historic 1908 Riverview Carousel will create the ultimate family holiday experience with more than 100,000 lights, artificial snow, more than 150 Christmas trees and more than 250 luminary candles.

Popular rides such as the Dahlonega Mine Train, Georgia Cyclone, and Goliath will be open too.
