Hello everyone and welcome to stop #2 on our Theme Park Christmas tour! After enjoying SeaWorld San Antonio's Christmas event first, we decided to check out Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Holiday in the Park event next! It's hard to compare the two since they both really focused on different aspects and each made their event special for their own park. But, we'll take you through a photo journey of our time spent there, give you some recommendations, and let you make up your own mind!
The entryway into the park could do with a little more decoration to really get people excited as they're walking in. But, hey, one strand of garland is cool, too?
We had to grab a map so we wouldn't miss any of the new areas!
The first area of the park didn't look like much during the day, but just wait until you see the photos at night!!
We decided to ride a few coasters before grabbing a seat for the nightly Christmas Tree Lighting.
And grab a souvenir hot chocolate mug. Six Flags offered unlimited refills of cocoa on the day of purchase, which is something that SeaWorld did not. *Ahem*
The Tinseltones performed a fun a cappella pre-show before the lighting of the tree!
And they were joined by the Looney Tunes Characters!
*Plus another secret guest, but we don't want to give away the surprise! ;)
This was our favorite part of the entire event! The tree lighting was magical, and the show was complete with fireworks and snow! It was a must-see!
After the show we walked around the corner to find the cutest S'mores roasting station! There are a few set up in the park, but this was the first one we'd passed.
$7 will get you one s'mores box kit, but you can make two from each box.
They give you roasting sticks and the rest is up to you!
We really liked this idea! You don't only get a tasty treat out of it, you also get to do an activity!
...and gets lots of cute pictures, of course.
"Holiday Illuminations" continued throughout the night.
The tree lights changed colors along to the music of several popular Christmas songs.
The entire Rockville area of the park looked so pretty all lit up.
And of course we had to check out how the construction is coming along for the new Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth roller coaster! It looks SO good! It's scheduled to open March 2018 and we can't wait!
We wandered over to Crackaxle Canyon next. This area of the park also looked great. Actually, we think the lights here should be a permanent addition. Just minus the garland, of course.
I really wanted to ride the holiday express train, but, sadly it was closed for maintenance. :(
So, we decided to catch the next show on the schedule: The Majesty of Christmas.
The show was AWESOME!
It's the retelling of the Nativity, which we admittedly thought would be kind of boring. Oops. But, it actually wasn't at all! The show featured AMAZING vocals, flying angels, and LIVE animals.
These are the kind of shows that lead Fiesta Texas to all of their Entertainment Award victories.
Back outside after the show. Told you the entrance area looked WAY better at night!
And ONE more hot chocolate refill..I think this was number 4 but who's counting?
The coolest part..this stand offered PEEPS in the hot chocolate. No extra charge, just extra yum :)
So, overall, we enjoyed our time at Fiesta Texas' Holiday in the Park.
There was less focus on holiday treats and specialty foods, but more focus on entertainment,
so it evened out with our trip to SeaWorld.
We've still got a couple of stops left on our Christmas Theme Park Tour, so stay tuned for updates on our next adventures! Until next time, Happy Holidays!
