Drive through Six Flags Magic Mountain past millions of holiday lights — but stay off the coasters – Press Telegram

What do you get when you combine Southern California car culture, bumper-to-bumper freeway traffic, fast food drive-thrus, shuttered theme parks and the COVID-19 pandemic?

A once-in-a-lifetime chance to drive through Six Flags Magic Mountain to see millions of holiday lights from the comfort and safety of your car.

The Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience will run on select dates from Nov. 20 to Jan. 3 at the Valencia amusement park.

Large California amusement parks such as Six Flags Magic Mountain remain closed and are unlikely to return to full operation until early 2021 or next summer under COVID-19 health and safety reopening guidelines issued by the state.

The Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience is a Christmas present for #StayAtHome Southern California motorists missing their daily commutes, but the gift lacks the one thing ride enthusiasts are longing for the most: Roller coasters. Magic Mountain rides will remain closed during the event.

The Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience will take visitors on a counter-clockwise route through the 125-acre park and past millions of holiday lights choreographed to music.

The Holiday in the Park route will pass through eight themed areas: Rockin’ Universe (DC Universe), Merry Lane (Metropolis), The Underground (West Coast Racers coaster), Winter Wonderland (Viper coaster), Holiday Square (Main Entrance), Snowy Night (Full Throttle Plaza), North Pole (Golden Bear Theatre) and Gleampunk District (Steampunk District).

Vehicles will enter through a backstage area of DC Universe and go up the hill between Tatsu and Roaring Rapids before exiting next to Twisted Colossus.

Along the way visitors will encounter 30-foot-tall ornaments, “ice” sculptures and faux snow. The Underground area next to the new West Coast Racers roller coaster will feature a car show by West Coast Customs, a Burbank auto customizer featured in the reality television show “Pimp My Ride.”
