The monsters and goblins from Six Flags Great Adventure’s Hallowfest have hardly had time to wipe their scary makeup off, and the park is already announcing new holiday plans.
New Jersey’s largest theme park announced Monday that 2020′s Holiday in the Park festivities will include Holiday Wine Fest, featuring eight different New Jersey wineries.
The event will take place Nov. 14 and 15. Tickets cost $44.99 and include access to the theme park and wine event. Entry fee does not include the wine itself; you’ll still be paying by the glass. Season Pass and Membership holders pay just $24.99. Get your tickets here.
Tomasello Winery, Wagonhouse Winery, DiMatteo Vineyards, Plagido’s Winery, Villari Vineyards, Valenzano Winery, Villa Milagro Vineyards and Salem Oak Vineyards will all be present, along with several food trucks and other food options.
Holiday in the Park begins on Nov. 14 and runs until Jan. 3. and will feature light shows, giant Christmas trees, street vendors, Santa in his workshop for photos and more along with all of Six Flags’ rides.
Six Flags has made major adjustments to stay open during the COVID-19 pandemic, delaying opening until July and implementing safety precautions throughout the park. Reservations are required to enter the park, which has its capacity capped and requires temperature checks upon entry to the park.
While the Jackson theme park is still holding holiday events, they have been modified to be safe during the coronavirus crisis — with Fright Fest replaced by Hallowfest in 2020 for Halloween.
“Six Flags worked in partnership with its epidemiologist consultants to create a safe holiday experience that meets or exceeds federal, state, and local guidelines,” Six Flags said in a press release. “Park attendance will be carefully monitored to avoid overcrowding and all Members, Season Pass Holders, and guests with single-day tickets will be required to make a reservation to attend Holiday in the Park.”
