In 2013, we saw wooden coasters do amazing new things, watched as giant robots battled across Orlando, pulled an all niter with Monsters, and walked with the dead, through cabins and woods and many other dark and demented places. With so many amazing things that happened in 2013 in the amusement industry, we are really excited for what 2014 brings. Before we finally close the book on 2013, however, we will pay tribute to the best Christmas events in the amusement industry for 2013 – as voted by you!
Christmas at theme parks is a special time of year. Not only do the parks go all out and decorate everything, but they also offer many seasonal shows, foods, and more. Some parks close the park at the end of their regular season and re-open their gates just for Christmas to bring the Christmas spirit alive.
And the runner-ups for Santa’s Pride – Best Christmas Event of 2013 is as follows:
5. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom
4. SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration at SeaWorld Orlando
3. A Very Furry Christmas at Sesame Place
2. An Old Time Christmas at Silver Dollar City
And the winner… Drum roll please?
Smokey Mountain Christmas at Dollywood
