With the holiday season in full swing, you may just be feeling like getting away from it all for a while to recharge and have some much-deserved fun. If you're looking for a close-to-home get-a-way with the kids, the Holiday Inn at Six Flags has just the ticket.
Spend the night at this family-oriented hotel during its Christmas Jubilee, and you and the kids will enjoy the Santa's workshop on site, interactive story telling with Santa in the beautifully decorated hotel (complete with four Christmas trees - one a 20-foot tree decorated with presents), and get free passes to the nearby Santa's Magical Kingdom, a spectacular light display filled with animated scenes, dazzling special effects and more than two million sparkling lights.
At the interactive story time with Santa, your kids will hear the story of the Polar Express, and each child receives a bell to ring during the story. Santa and his friendly elves will be on hand at his on-site workshop too, where kids can make Christmas crafts and their own projects to take home.
Use the vehicle pass to Santa's Magical Kingdom, which is included in the package, to enjoy one of the Midwest's most spectacular light displays. Your kids can explore the Kingdom, have photos taken with Santa, visit Kringle's Store or hop on the Santa Express for a train ride. Old-fashioned holiday wagon rides through the Kingdom are an open-air adventure with a 360 degree unobstructed view of all the sights and sounds of Santa's Magical Kingdom.
End your magical night by having Santa or one of his friendly elves tuck in your kids, complete with a cookie! (For an additional charge.)
The Christmas Jubilee package is available on Saturday, Dec. 10 or Saturday, Dec. 17. It includes a one-night stay for your family at the Holiday Inn at Six Flags, Santa's Workshop, a vehicle pass to Santa's Magical Kingdom, and lots more for $129 plus tax per room.
