Circuit of The Americas will present the inaugural Peppermint Parkway, a holiday drive-thru experience.

The holiday spectacular will be a one-mile driving attraction that will immerse visitors in millions of holiday lights, décor pieces standing at over 30’ tall, a six-story light show tree, and more. Upon arrival, guests will receive special holiday cookies courtesy of H-E-B (while supplies last) before joining Pepper and Mint on their journey to deliver letters to Santa.

Guests can spot strolling entertainers and experience the magic of the holidays while cruising through Candy Cane Lane, Gingerbread Alley, ATXmas, Frozenland, and more before finally landing at Club Sleigh.

COTA is also offering ticket upgrades that include Candy Cane Cruise (parkway admission + a lap around America’s only F1 track) for $60; Polar Express Pass (parkway admission + expedited fast pass lane) for $75; and Super Sweet Deal (parkway admission + track lap + fast pass) for $90

In addition to exploring Peppermint Parkway, guests can get into the holiday spirit at COTA’s Peppermint Plaza, featuring rides at the COTALAND Kiddie Amusement Park, food trucks, and a meet & greet with Pepper & Mint. Peppermint Plaza will be open from 6-10:30 pm on weekdays and from 12-10:30 pm on weekends.

Visitors can also add adrenaline to their night out by racing loved ones at COTA Karting and getting a bird’s eye view of the holiday spectacular on the Zip Line.
