AUSTELL, Ga.–()–Six Flags Over Georgia, the Thrill Capital of the South, today set a new world record for the Most Christmas Pickle Ornaments placed onto Christmas Trees during the park’s 4th annual Holiday in the Park wintertime celebration. 500 guests—each with their own Christmas pickle ornament, courtesy of Pier 1 Imports—took part in the event. The ornaments were placed onto Pier 1 Imports Christmas trees lining the park entrance.

The Christmas pickle ornament is a long-standing tradition, spanning hundreds of years. Legend has it that the pickle ornament is hidden in a Christmas tree and on Christmas morning, whoever finds it first, gets an extra present and good luck.

“Holiday in the Park is bigger and brighter than ever before and tonight, our guests were able to create a new family tradition during the most magical time of the season,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “Each guest who participated in our record attempt took home their very own Christmas pickle ornament to place on their tree each year, thanks to Six Flags Holiday in the Park and our partners.”

To celebrate the momentous achievement, 500 park guests kept the fun going during a family-friendly snowball fight with plush snowballs as part of Six Flags Snow Day, presented by Hallmark Channel. The event was postponed a week due to a real snowstorm, which blanketed the Metro Atlanta region with up to a foot of snow.

Holiday in the Park at Six Flags Over Georgia was recently named among the best holiday events in Georgia. This annual celebration transforms the park into a winter wonderland with dazzling Christmas trees and lighting displays, exclusive holiday shows, delicious seasonal menu offerings and many of the park’s most popular rides. The event includes 16 special holiday-themed sections including the all-new Metropolis Park, along with the return of guest-favorites: A Georgia Christmas, Mistletoe Mansion and Retro Christmas USA.

Holiday in the Park operates December 16, 17 and daily from December 20 through January 3, 2018 except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. For more information, including ticket and season pass pricing, visit
