Peppermint Parkway at Circuit of the Americas is now open and back to bring everyone some holiday cheer! Bigger and better than ever before, this year they’ve added a discount Christmas tree lot, where you can get last-minute trees of all sizes at amazing prices.
The drive-thru experience will follow Pepper and Mint on their journey to deliver letters to Santa. Enjoy a mile of beautiful light displays as you head through the Twinkle Tunnel, Candy Cane Lane, Gingerbread Alley, the Enchanted Forest, Ornament Alley, the North Pole, and many more, before finally making your way to Club Sleigh — the hottest nightlife spot for Santa’s elves!
But the parkway is not all there is to enjoy at COTA! You won’t want to miss all of the amazing activities at Peppermint Plaza, which can be visited before or after your drive. Here you can get your snack on with plenty of delicious food, sweet treats, and warm drinks from a variety of food trucks throughout the plaza. You can hop on the Peppermint Express to enjoy a festive ride around the plaza, sing carols, write letters to Santa, stop under the Mistletoe, and even meet Pepper and Mint!
For those looking for a little more thrill this holiday season, the plaza also has a wide variety of amusement park rides, a zipline that will allow you to see the whole parkway from the sky, and racing at COTA Karting! The Karting in particular will make you feel like a mini F1 racer, with a mile-long track to race on and karts that reach around 55 mph.
Make sure to check out the Wonder Woods Discount Tree Lot, new this year. The discount tree lot at Circuit of the Americas offers trees of every shape, size and price to fit your home and your wallet. Located at COTA’s Entrance on FM-812, you can pick your perfect tree together this year and pull out of The Circuit with it in tow!
Peppermint Parkway is open nightly through December 26th at 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd in Austin. Tickets are $40 for Parkway Admission, but for $65, you get the chance to take a lap around the F1 racetrack! Grab the Polar Express Package to skip the line for fast pass access, or The Sweetest Deal to get admission, fast pass access, and do a track lap.
Peppermint Parkway features 20 charity nights supporting I Live Here I Give Here and Amplify Austin. These nights are extra special, with charitable contributions going directly to about 700 local non-profits focusing on human rights, animal rights, literacy, and more.
Whichever night you visit, get out and enjoy some festive cheer this holiday season!
