It's the perfect year for a SeaWorld Christmas! SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration is a uniquely festive way to celebrate the season. Starting on weekends, November 17th through December 16th, then continuing daily, December 22nd through January 5th, the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration is a truly one-of-a-kind winter event! While part of the park transforms into SnowWorld, full of 6,500 square feet of snow to play in, build snowmen, and make snow angels, even Shamu's celebrating, with a special holiday show – Shamu's Christmas! Sleds are also available for thrill-seeking children, ages 5-12. And don't forget to ride The Polar Express 4-D Experience, or visit the big guy himself in Santa's Cottage! After dark, the SeaWorld Christmas tree comes to life nightly with thousands of colorful lights. At 320 feet tall, it's the largest in Southern California, and a local tradition since 1969!
