Six Flags in Chicago Area Opens Drive-Thru Holiday Experience (B-Roll)

Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, opened its first ever drive-thru holiday lights experience on December 16, as the coronavirus pandemic forced entertainment venues across the US to redesign their festive offerings.

Footage provided by Six Flags Great America shows the experience, which replaces the previous version of Holiday in the Park Lights, featuring over three million lights and seasonal tunes.

“We are proud to debut another way for our guests to celebrate the holidays with this unique, magical offering,” said Six Flags Great America President Hank Salemi. “We have successfully transformed the traditional operation of our beloved Holiday in the Park into a walk-through and now a new drive-thru experience.”
