In the Magic of Christmas!

Nov. 27 – Dec. 23

Sun - Fri:  Noon to 5 p.m.

Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Are you on Santa’s naughty or nice list this year? Come find out! Santa has left a trail of clues and riddles through the Aquarium and a magic motion-activated wand just for you. Your magical Christmas wand can turn on lights, create music, grow a Grinch’s heart, create reindeer footprints and so much more! But most importantly, it will reveal which of Santa’s lists you’re on and kids will receive a special gift at the end of the journey. This magical event will have everyone believing in the magic of Christmas!


  • As you approach the beautifully decorated aquarium watch the thousands of exterior Christmas lights dance to synchronized Christmas music on your FM radio. 

  • Enter through our gingerbread lobby to pick up your wand and then venture through stocking central, the Grinch’s lair, reindeer stables, a star factory and more!

  • Write a letter to Santa (Will he write back? Yes, receive a letter in your mailbox!)

  • Tour the beautiful Christmas Tree Lane where local businesses have decorated beautiful Christmas trees. Vote for your favorite tree to decide which business’s charity will receive a $3,000 donation!

  • Many opportunities to get that perfect family holiday photo!

  • See our underwater SCUBA Santa (select times TBD)

  • Receive a special BELIEVE! gift

BELIEVE! tickets are an extra $5 upgrade and include your wand, aquarium entry and a special take-home gift. 

Regular tickets (no wand or gift) are $15 for ages 13+ and $12 for ages 3-12. Ages 2 and under are free.
