Hersheypark- Christmas Candy Lane
Silver Dollar City- An Old Time Christmas
Dollywood- Smoky Mountain Christmas
Wild Waves- Don't they have a Christmas event here?
Year round parks in Orlando (Universal's Grinchmas), So Cal (Knotts Merry Farm), and Wild Adventures do some Holiday stuff as well.
I've only been to the Hersheyparkand Dollywood events and both are really neat. Dollywood especially goes all out with the lights and decorations. Hersheypark only has limited rides open while both SDC and Dollywood run much more (minus water rides of course) as long as it isn't too cold.
At Wild Adventures they have "A Very Cheetah Celebration", where everyone takes sledgehammers to the trackwork...gets the ride *ready* just in time for the January event.... ;)
Ice Cold 'Keg :)
I don't think there'll be a problem.
Lots of pretty lights, decorations, and Holiday entertainment, a sledding hill, and of course, coasters at night during my favorite time of year (Winter!) make this an event I'll keep attending every year!
About two thirds of the ride package is up for this event, and the ride lineup can change from year to year. Although my SFOT fave, the Texas Giant, was down the last two HITPs, my other SFOT favorites, Titan and Shockwave, were up both times I attended, so it was well worth it!
Riding Titan and Shockwave over and over again at night in 35-40 degree weather in 2003 was one of my favorite coaster experiences of all time! In 2004, the weather was a bit warmer, but still a lot more pleasant than typical southern summer weather.
I plan to also attend Dollywood's holiday event this year as cool night rides on Thunderhead beckon!
I absolutely love the night-oriented, cooler-weather Christmas and Halloween themed events as they allow me to significantly extend my riding season into the cooler half of the year (Sept 21 - March 21) that I like best!

Only problem is getting the time off work, since im sure we have the same operating days as them at SFOT. Oh well. Can't hurt to try.
