SeaWorld San Diego brings the moving story of the Nativity and the meaning of Christmas to life through song and celebration at the all-new live holiday musical, O Wondrous Night, The Greatest Story Never Told, as part of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, Nov. 18, 2017 through Jan. 6, 2018. In addition to O Wondrous Night, many of the seasonal favorites that have made SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration a family holiday tradition are back for park guests to enjoy.
The spectacular stage show, O Wondrous Night, will be performed under the stars nightly at the park’s Nautilus Amphitheater. It tells the Christmas story from a new point of view: through the eyes of the animals. This breathtaking musical features more than 30 carols, beautiful storytelling puppets and live majestic animals, including camels, a donkey, llamas, sheep and doves.
In addition to O Wondrous Night, SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration also includes: Rudolph’s Christmastown with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and his friends Clarice, Bumble and Yukon Cornelius; Santa’s Christmas Village with Santa, Mrs. Claus, the merry elves, and real reindeer; Dolphin Island Christmas; Clyde & Sea Lion’s Christmas Special; and more than a million holiday lights, hundreds of Christmas trees and 5,000 feet of garland. The lights of SeaWorld’s 320-foot Skytower Tree of Lights, the largest Christmas tree in Southern California, will dance in sync with classic holiday songs.
All of SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration festivities (except for arcade-style games and reserved experiences such as Breakfast With Orcas and Santa) are included with park admission.
