Here's a detailed look at SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration:

  • NEW! - This holiday season brings a very special guest from the North Pole to SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration®: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! Guests will have the opportunity to meet the lovable reindeer and his friends at Rudolph's Christmastown, an all-new experience located at SeaWorld's Pole to Pole Plaza and share in Rudolph's family fun and holiday traditions while making spirits bright.
  • NEW! - Snow Hill: It's snowy fun for the little ones at this new themed area with real snow and sled lanes geared for smaller children (open December 17 through January 1).
  • Shamu Christmas Miracles: Thrilling seasonal music rings out as amazing killer whales, gifted trainers and a talented female vocalist share a story of reflection and understanding, of peace and friendship and of the everyday miracles that surround us all year long. Guests will experience a fun and entertaining sing-a-long preshow and share in the power and beauty of Shamu's family in this touching holiday favorite.
  • Clyde & Seamore's Christmas Special: SeaWorld's prank-loving pinnipeds Clyde and Seamore have a hilarious holiday time in this Christmas-themed sea lion and otter show.
  • Dolphin Island Christmas: This Christmas-themed dolphin show celebrates the holidays with a tropical twist as dolphins and pilot whales perform amazing athletic feats set to island music.
