There’s a new holiday light attraction in metro Atlanta, and it looks spectacular!
The drive-through animated light show is called Candy Rush. It is billed as a delicious, whimsical wonderland.
Candy Rush opens for the first time ever on Friday, November 20th at 6 p.m., in the parking lot of Six Flags White Water.
The dazzling display was created by World of Illumination, creator of the largest animated light shows in the world. It features millions of lights, as well as hundreds of animated displays synced to music.
Better yet, there is a Groupon deal that saves you a few dollars — scroll down for more info.
The nightly light shows run through January 3, 2021.
The animated displays include 40-foot tall candy canes, sugar plum fairies, a gingerbread village, and more. You’ll drive through a 500-foot long tunnel of lights that serves as Santa’s magic portal, with popular holiday characters appearing along the route.
On opening night, Friday, Nov. 20th, Santa himself will be on hand to wave to all those attending.
Bonus: For every ticket sold for the opening night show, the company will donate a ticket to a first responder.

You’ll pick a date and time. Time slots begin at 6 p.m. and run every half hour until 9:30 p.m.
A ticket allows unlimited passengers, but please be smart about your family’s health. See what the CDC says about traveling with others in a personal vehicle.
This attraction is not affiliated with Six Flags White Water, which is not currently operating. It takes place in the large parking lot, located at 250 Cobb Pkwy N, Marietta, GA 30062.
