BELIEVE! The Magic of Christmas awaits at the Shreveport Aquarium

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

While it’s not quite time to deck the halls with boughs of holly, ‘tis the season to book your tickets to BELIEVE! The Magic of Christmas at Shreveport Aquarium. Celebrating its first year of Christmas magic, BELIEVE! is an interactive Christmas journey through the aquarium that will make you believe in the magic of Christmas again! From Nov. 27 through Dec. 23, be immersed in the biggest, brightest and most beautifully decorated places in town.

Santa has left a trail of clues and riddles throughout the Aquarium and guests use magical motion-activated wands to turn on lights, create music, grow a Grinch’s heart, create reindeer footprints and most importantly, reveal which of Santa’s lists they are on, naughty or nice. This daily interactive experience is available during regular aquarium hours Sunday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also features:

  • A gingerbread lobby, stocking central, the Grinch’s lair, reindeer stables, a star factory and many more interactive exhibits within the aquarium.

  • Christmas Tree Lane, where local businesses have decorated beautiful Christmas trees. The fan favorite will receive a $3,000 donation for their selected charity.

  • A special BELIEVE! gift for each child

  • Many opportunities to get that perfect family holiday aquarium photo!

BELIEVE! tickets are a $5 upgrade and include your wand, aquarium entry and a special gift. Regular tickets (no wand or gift) are $15 for ages 13+, $12 for ages 3-12 and free for age 2 and under.

For those looking for an evening experience complete with festive lights, cocoa and a special guest, enjoy BELIEVE Lights the Night! on weekend evenings beginning Nov. 27 from 5 to 8 p.m. as well as the week leading up to Christmas.

As you approach the beautifully decorated aquarium watch the thousands of exterior Christmas lights dance to synchronized Christmas music on your FM 88.9 radio. Once inside, families will embark on the ultimate magical Christmas journey together through the aquarium with a cast of costumed holiday characters. Each ticket includes:

  • Costumed holiday characters around every corner. Maybe you can sing with an elf, craft with the Ice Queen or crack jokes with the Grinch?

  • An interactive BELIEVE magic wand experience that can turn on lights, create music, grow a Grinch’s heart, create reindeer footprints and so much more as your tour the aquarium.

  • An opportunity to write a letter to Santa and receive one back (through Dec. 12)

  • Time with Santa in his workshop and a clever, socially distant photo opp, hot chocolate and cookies

  • A make and take home ornament

  • A special BELIEVE! gift for all boys and girls

All BELIEVE Lights the Night tickets for ages 2 and over are $25. Members receive a $10 discount.
