This wintery, watery wonderland features extraordinary Christmas shows, festive foods, Santa Claus, and more! Join Santa and Mrs. Claus for a special Christmas feast and story time. Stroll past life-sized story book vignettes featuring the classic tale of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and friends. Merry Mariachis serenade you with a mix of the sounds of the season and the culture of San Antonio.  Christmas sweet treats, photo opportunities with your favorite characters, fireworks on select nights, and millions of twinkling lights await you and yours! Now through January 3, make SeaWorld a part of your holiday celebration, and remember…

T’was the holiday season, and all through the park

Your favorite marine animals welcome you to this Texas landmark.

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is finally here,

With so many reasons to visit this year.

To start of the list, this event, it is free

For annual pass holders, plus parking, yippee!

Also for pass holders, we have gifts just for you…

Ornaments, light up masks, and scarves to name a few.

As you stroll through the park, and the day turns to night,

You’ll be in awe of millions of twinkling lights!

And for 2020, there are some new things in store…

Hanukah and Kwanzaa celebrations and a fire pit for roasting s’mores.

Mrs. Claus and the elves will prepare a feast to eat,

With turkey, and ham, and for desert, Christmas sweets.

Don’t forget Santa will take photos and hear your wish list,

But from six feet away with some social distance.

Grown-ups can relive their youth, and share with their children

The story of a red-nosed reindeer and his special friends.

And if thrilling coasters are your thing, then hold on real tight!

Ride them in the dark for a great view of all the lights.

There are holiday shows for you and for me,

Like Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas, plus the Merry Mariachis.

And on a few special dates, we’ll cap off the night

With a Christmas fireworks extravaganza to amaze and delight.

Come see penguins and beluga whales enjoying the Christmas cold.

Spending time with the animals will never get old.

So visit SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, you’ll agree that it’s great.

It’s the largest holiday light display and celebration

In the Lone Star State!
