I was invited to attend the media event for SeaWorld Christmas celebration, however all opinions expressed are my own.
SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration runs Nov. 15 through Jan. 4
It is not like we need a reason to visit SeaWorld, because we love the park. My son loves animals and science and as usual a trip to SeaWorld is always something everyone at the house is looking forward to. It is hard to say we have a favorite time to visit SeaWorld, however since we love Christmas time, we would have to say that we love SeaWorld during this time of the year, not only for all the Christmas decorations, music , food but also because we can enjoy some snow and sleding in Southern California.
So, what there is to do at SeaWorld during their Christmas celebration? Besides enjoying attractions such as Shark encounter, Turtle Reef and Mantra the roller coaster among other fun things, you need to make sure you visit the special holiday places and shows.
Dolphin Island Christmas
A group of dolphins celebrates the holidays with a tropical twist and they perform jumps, get the audience soaked and show us in a very relaxed way all their tricks.
The Pets Rule Christmas
Animals adopted from shelters will share their Christmas spirit while having fun on stage. Dogs, cats, pigs and even Kangaroos make this show a very cute one.
Clyde & Seamore’s Christmas Special
One of our favorite shows at SeaWorld is the sea lion show and during the holidays you can enjoy the Christmas-themed sea lion and otter show. You will sing and laugh, because although not everything goes always as planned the prankster-loving pinnipeds know how to keep the audience entertained.
Santa’s Christmas Village
It the beautiful decorated Christmas house you can mingle with Santa’s elves and Mrs. Claus and also enjoy a sweet treat such as a waffle-on-a-stick. You can also get a photo with Santa. Mrs. Claus invites everyone to join her in a spirited sing-along to help her and the elves light a festive 40-foot animated tree.
8,000 square feet of fresh snow each day where kids can enjoy and have fun while sledding, snowmen building and snowball fights. Kids of all ages will have fun playing at the snow, and if it gets too cold, no worries you can find some yummy treats such as hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls with bacon to warm up.
Shamu Christmas Miracles
Before you go home make sure you get to see Shamu's Christmas Miracles show. The Orca whales show us all their amazing tricks as powerful vocalists and community choirs sing. A must see!
We also had the chace to meet SeaWorld and Aquatica San Diego’s Executive Chef Axel Dirolf who explained to us that SeaWorld really want to give you the best value for your money and the menu includes delicious Mac and Cheese with bacon (a family favorite) and also other delicatessens such as brie grilled cheese sandwich. There is also hot chocolate available during this time of the year and awesome cinnamon rolls with bacon on top.
