From the park's press release:

The Six Flags Plaza area will transform into a kaleidoscope of lights, featuring hundreds of thousands of lights on trees, buildings and attractions. An array of water and lights will create a one-of-a-kind, holiday tree in the fountain area while carolers welcome guests as they enter this magical scene. A holiday show featuring contemporary music and dancing will be spotlighted on the Full Throttle stage. Crafts and spiced-up holiday treats will be the focal point in the "Winter Wonderland" Mining Town area of the park and a classic Santa Claus visiting area will anchor this picture-perfect setting. DC UNIVERSE will feature a dazzling spectacle-of-lights show featuring contemporary holiday music set to one of the largest programmed light shows on the West coast with millions of lighting variations programmed using tens of thousands of lights.

Park guests can enjoy all the wonderful aromas of the season while satisfying their appetite and quenching their thirst with hot chocolate, cider, custom fudge, holiday-inspired funnel cake flavors and many other traditional favorites.

Six Flags for many years has been running a popular holiday event at its original park in Texas, and similar events have expanded to three other Six Flags parks. However, despite (or, perhaps, "because of") being the only park in the chain that's open year-round, Magic Mountain hasn't had a holiday-themed event before now.

All other Southern California theme parks have been offering holiday-themed events, from Universal Studios Hollywood's Grinchmas to Knott's Merry Farm to Disneyland's annual holiday decor and parades. But Holiday in the Park will allow thrill ride fans to share in the holiday spirit while enjoying several top coasters, too.
