SnowWorld and Holiday Cheer At SeaWorld®
As longtime passhholders, we’ve spent lots of hours at SnowWorld at SeaWorld® San Diego. As a child, I recall the event being held on the hill which is now below the rollercoaster Manta. Many a day I would spend hiking up, and sledding down that hill with my personal sled in hand, decked out in a heavy snow jacket, boots, and winter gloves.
Nowadays SeaWorld® provides the sleds, and places SnowWorld across from Pets Theatre, in an area normally reserved for school groups, and special events. Although it’s very different than the massive hill I knew as a child, it’s still super fun for the littles. Our kids spend hours there playing in the snow and sledding every time we visit.
I don’t go to the extent that my mom would, and dress my kids in a heavy ski jacket, but I do dress them in long sleeve shirts and pants, and bring a warm jacket, and bring mittens. They usually wear jeans, and I always bring a change of clothes because I expect that they may very well need them after hours of snow fun.
Seasonal Fare During SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration®
Inside SnowWorld you’ll also find a super convenient concession stand, selling gourmet goodies including fudge, many different types of macaroni and cheese, hot chocolate, cookies, fountain drinks, kettle corn, snow cones, and more. We were invited to a media event at SeaWorld®, and had the opportunity to sample some of the delicious fare. Having a sweet tooth, my personal favorite is the fudge. The different flavors of mac n’ cheese are super yummy, and nothing like you would get out of a box.
Reindeer In Training, Seasonal Shows, Santa, & More
Aside from SnowWorld, SeaWorld® also has a fun little village with two reindeer visiting from a rescue organization. Within the winter village you’ll also find lots of opportunities for festive pictures, including a sleigh, gorgeous Christmas trees, and Santa inside his cottage. Christmas music is played overhead, and the Park is decked out with holiday decor.
Other festive fun at Christmastime at SeaWorld® include special holiday themed shows, such as Clyde and Seamore’s Christmas Special, Shamu’s Christmas Miracles, Pets Rule Christmas, Breakfast with Shamu and Santa, character greetings, and more.
More Than 1 Million Twinkling Lights
If you visit at night, you’ll be amazed by the amount of twinkling lights. There are more than a million throughout the Park. A fun Christmas tree, close to the entry and exit, flickers between many different shades of vibrant color. It’s fun to sit and watch.
