  • The World's Biggest Christmas Tree - Standing at 125 feet tall, the towering presence and iconic symbol of California's biggest holiday celebration, Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, is a gigantic Douglas fir - the biggest cut Christmas tree in the world!

  • Santa's Workshop - It's the 21st century and Santa Claus has kept up with the pace of technology, as tradition mixes with modern day in this charming take on Santa's workshop. Kids should have their wish list and holiday smiles ready, as Santa will be on hand to take notes and pose for pictures.

  • Candy Cane Lane - Wander through a delightful canopy of larger-than-life candy canes, lollipops and other holiday treats while enjoying the beautiful vista of Lake Chabot. Make sure to bring your sweet tooth!

  • Toyland - "The bigger the better" comes to mind as every child's dream of running through a maze of giant toys comes true. See an enormous teddy bear, a gigantic Nutcracker soldier and wrapped gifts and ornaments the size of refrigerators! They've all been specially delivered to the park and will magically "come to life" in a wonderful holiday show.

  • Christmas Tree Forest - Nothing says Christmas like the smell of fresh pine trees. Stop and gaze at this beautiful collection of Christmas trees - all adorned with spectacular holiday lights as the melodious sounds of "O Christmas Tree" fill the air.

  • Winter Wonderland - Who says it never snows in Northern California! Giant snowflakes, icicles and blankets of snow have transformed Lakeside Pavilion into an enchanting winter wonderland. Frosty the Snowman has found a home in this special place and yummy holiday treats abound!

  • New holiday-themed shows - What also separates this event from any other is the chance to see the park's star animals in all-new holiday shows. Shouka the killer whale will enrapture audiences in "Dream"; the park's sea lions and otters are showcased in a comedic performance of "Super-Spirited Sea Lions Save Christmas"; and the park's popular dolphins will work their magic during "A Dolphin Holiday."
