San Diego Zoo Begins Annual “Jungle Bells” Attraction

As the holiday season approaches, the San Diego Zoo will be transformed into a “winter wonderland” themed park, complete with holiday programming, live performances, and other special attractions. This year, “Jungle Bells” will feature the “Twilight Light Trolley,” an attraction that takes guests on a tour of animal light sculptures. Visitors can also walk through trees adorned in holiday lights to the Northern Frontier’s Holiday Forest, where they can see animals that are accustomed to winter weather. Kids can also stop by Santa’s Igloo for a visit and photo with a jolly elf.

Additionally, the Reindeer Games—a program featuring fun games played by Rudolph and friends—will take place on the main stage. Puppet shows and other holiday plays will take place at the park, including a performance that details the long 100-year history of the San Diego Zoo. Musical performances include caroling group, The Tinseltones, and the Jingle Brass band.

The zoo’s daily hours will be extended to 8 p.m. so guests are able to experience the majesty of the holiday lighting. San Diego is home to many special attractions that draw thousands from across the country every year.

New Sea World Attractions Coming to San Diego

As a part of a $175 million dollar capital investment, Sea World in San Diego will soon be housing two new attractions that will immerse guests into the life and habitat of underwater species. The highly-anticipated attractions come at a time when Sea World is attempting to move away from theatrical shows and align themselves towards natural orca whale encounters, meant to educate the public and garner appreciation for the species.

The attractions include Ocean Explorer, a three-acre expanse that will boast multiple aquariums, amusement rides, and digital technology. The main feature of Ocean Explorer will be Submarine Quest, an attraction that will allow guests to board mini-submarines and view rare underwater animals, such as the spider crab and giant octopus. The ride will have underwater research bases and interactive activities for guests’ enjoyment.

The other primary attraction will be the Orca Encounter—an experience that will focus on the life of killer orca whales in their natural habitat, including how they hunt and navigate, what they eat, and the methods they employ to communicate. The two multi-million dollar attractions are expected to reinvent Sea World’s traditional business model.

San Diego is a premier hotspot for entertainment and vacationing, with tourist attractions growing by the year.
