There’s Still Time To Have A Magical Drive-Thru Holiday Experience at Circuit of The Americas


Even in 2020, Christmas time is the most magical time of the year. All season long, we’ve been highlighting our favorite holiday events and this one really revs our engines! Peppermint Parkway is a magical drive-thru holiday experience at Circuit of The Americas that features one-mile of immersive holiday displays, millions of lights, dancing elves and more.

Here’s everything you need to know about Peppermint Parkway at Circuit of the Americas!

  • It’s a drive-thru experience happening on select nights through January 3.
  • Guests follow the official mascots of Peppermint Parkway Pepper and Mint on their journey down COTA’s Tunnel Road as they race to deliver their letters to Santa.
  • The thoughtfully designed holiday experience features dancing elves and other festive entertainers strolling through dazzling scenes, transporting guests from Candy Cane Lane to an enchanted forest, and so much more.
  • After the adventure concludes, guests can meet Pepper and Mint and enjoy holiday treats at COTALAND.
