The most wonderful time of the year at Six Flags Fiesta Texas returns on November 17th and operates on select dates through January 6th. The park is transformed into a holiday wonderland with award-winning entertainment, holiday decor everywhere, and many other activities that are great for families and children. Many favorites are returning. However, what will be new this year? What will not be making its return to the Holiday in the park line-up?

New for 2018

Six Flags Fiesta Texas has a large line-up of holiday-related entertainment and activities this time of the year. For 2018, two new additions are coming to the park and they look to not disappoint:


The Heart of the Holidays

The Heart of the Holidays is a NEW show coming to Holiday in the Park this season! Located in Rockville High School, this production features many current and classic holiday hits, including "Keep Christmas With You,"The Man With the Bag," and more.


“Magic of the Season” Ornament

Head to Texas State Square in Los Festivales for a BRAND NEW photo opportunity during Holiday in the Park. Enjoy entering a huge ornament adorned with a twinkling lights all around.

Not Returning in 2018

While the park is adding two great additions as noted above, a couple of other activities will not be headed back for Holiday in the Park this year:


My Christmas Card to You

Playing in Rockville High School for the last several seasons, this show will not be making its return to the stage as it is being replaced by the new The Heart of the Holidays production. My Christmas Card to You featured a mail person whom delivered holiday letters all throughout Rockville. The show also included live singing, dancers, and a live band. We do expect the brand new show to follow much of the same concept as this departing one.


North Pole Reflections

North Pole Reflections was a projection show that took place on the queue building of Bugs’ White Water Rapids and Sangerfest Halle in Spassburg. The impressive show featured animations that were mapped to the buildings. The animations were, of course, holiday-themed and went along with music and other sound effects. The projection effects had previously played during Fright Fest but also didn’t come back during this season.

Returning for 2018
