Beginning Nov. 23, SeaWorld® San Antonio will be transformed into a winter, watery wonderland where families of all ages can enjoy stunning live shows, sip hot cocoa and stroll through a sea of more than one million twinkling lights during its annual Christmas Celebration®, a magical holiday program offered on scheduled operating days, through Dec. 31.
In the newest addition to SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, SnowWorld presented by Coca-Cola®, families can play in real snow, right here in Central Texas! Guests will feel like they’re in a winter wonderland while sledding, playing and dashing through the snow. Plus, families will get the opportunity to capture their memorable day at SeaWorld with a unique family photo inside of a larger-than-life snow globe. This 12-foot-tall snow globe in SnowWorld Market is sure to get families into the holiday spirit as they pose for their exlusive Christmas portrait in this unique setting.
Also new this year is Christmas Cove, an area of the park that will make guests feel like they’ve stepped into the 1950s. A visit to Christmas Cove would not be complete without Home for the Holidays: Dinner with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Guests will feel right at home for the holidays when they join Santa and Mrs. Claus for dinner with all the trimmings and a special story. Advance reservations are required for this exlusive dining experience.
Another new element to SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is Joy to the World, an area of the park that will feature trumpeting angel statues, a beautiful nativity scene and carolers telling the story of Christmas through song.
Guests’ Christmas favorites include: Shamu Christmas Miracles, Clyde & Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas, A Dolphin Christmas, Elmo’s Christmas Wish, O’ Christmas Tree and Reflections. Also returning are the many traveling musicians, carolers and photo opportunities each with their own unique Christmas flare. Plus, there will be a festive train ride for young guests aboard the SeaWorld Express located near our Nautilus Amphitheater.
Set to music from The Nutcracker, A Dolphin Christmas features beluga whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, acrobats and trainers in a stunning celebration of Christmas, the SeaWorld way.
Make a wish during Elmo’s Christmas Wish in the heart of our charming Sesame Street® Bay of Play®, and be inspired watching Rosita, Grover, Zoe and Cookie Monster all work together to help Elmo find his Christmas wish.
Guests can reflect on the magic of Christmas during Reflections and sing-a-long to Christmas melodies led by “Elfred” and all the SeaWorld carolers.
Santa’s sea lion helpers, Clyde and Seamore, are brining laughs to SeaWorld in Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas. This special holiday show is filled with spoofs and plenty of laughs. Our loveable sea lions, along with the rest of the crew, invite guests to their fun-filled holiday celebration.
Guests are taken on a wonderful voyage into the heart of the holidays as they experience the power and beauty of Shamu Christmas Miracles. They’ll be immersed in a festive atmosphere of sight and sound, where thrilling holiday music soars as Shamu helps tell a story of reflection, understanding, peace, friendship and the everyday miracles that surround us.
