[exp] [/exp]Through through January 3, 2018, you can experience Stone Mountain Christmas at Stone Mountain Park.
Stone Mountain Christmas gets you in the holiday spirit with two million+ lights, festive music, visits with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, live performances of A Christmas Carol & The Littlest Christmas Tree, rides on the Singalong Christmas Train, screenings of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4-D, visits with the Snow Angel at the Snow Angel Palace & Santa Claus, a Crossroads Christmas Parade with a Snow Angel Snowfall Finale, & more.
And you can play on Snow Mountain through February 25, 2018. Though your Adventure pass or Mountain Membership gets you in to Stone Mountain Christmas, a Snow Mountain pass or Mountain Member PLUS pass is required to play at Snow Mountain. If you’re not familiar with Snow Mountain, here are the basics:
- The 400-foot 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.
- New for 2017-2018: Galactic Tubing. If your Snow Mountain session includes the 6:00 p.m. hour or later, your experience will include music, laser lights overhead, & LED lights all around “dancing” to the beat.
