Stone Mountain Christmas opens this weekend at Stone Mountain Park.

Through January 1, 2014, your Christmas Adventure pass or Mountain Member pass will let you experience all that Stone Mountain Christmas has to offer, including Homespun Christmas at the Antebellum Plantation, The Polar Express 4-D Experience, Singalong Christmas Train, A Crossroads Christmas Carol, Holly Jolly Cabaret, Snow Angel Palace, a visit with Santa Claus, Crossroads Christmas Parade, the Snow Angel Snowfall and Fireworks Finale, & more.

And you can play on Snow Mountain through February 19, 2014. A Snow Mountain pass or Mountain Member PLUS pass is required to play. If you’re not familiar with Snow Mountain, here are the basics:

  • The 400-foot long tubing hill offers two experiences–Avalanche Alley is for multiple riders while Tube Runners is designed for single riders.
  • In the Snow Zone, kids can play at Penguin Run (turrets, tunnels, & mid-sized slides), build a snowman, shoot snowballs at targets, or build an igloo.
  • Kids ages three & under can play in the Little Angels section.

Want to head out on the cheap? Take advantage of one of these deals:

As for parking, for most vehicles, it’s $10, but, you can still get in on the cheap:

  • You can also walk or ride a bike to get in free. We’ve parked in Stone Mountain Village & walked in before, though if we do it again, I think we’d opt to bring the bikes.
  • If you must drive, spring for the $35 annual permit if you you live near Stone Mountain Park & plan to visit at least four times a year, whether to take advantage of free special events or the park’s outdoor activities and laser show.
  • If you get the Mountain Member PLUS pass, it includes parking + other benefits. Regular Mountain Members can add annual parking to the pass for $20.

Stone Mountain Park is located at 1000 Robert E. Lee Dr., Stone Mountain. Technically, the main entrance is located at U.S. Highway 78 East, Exit 8, Stone Mountain, but online mapping programs often don’t like the address. 770-498-5690.
