Snowman Cookie Decorating

Weekends in December experience the magic of the holiday sea-son at the South Carolina Aquarium through interactive "snow day" activities the entire family will enjoy. Young guests will get to decorate a free snowman cookie during their visit! Cozy up to the hot chocolate bar, try your hand at snowman bowling, throw snowballs, build an igloo out of recycled materials and test your skills at a giant game of checkers. While exploring the Aquarium, keep your eyes peeled for our elusive Shark on the Shelf, Finzy, who is back for another year of hide and seek! If you can spot him, you'll receive a special holiday prize.


Everyone's favorite jolly old fellow in a red suit and SCUBA gear will be making a splash in the Aquarium's Great Ocean Tank during the first three weekends in December. SCUBA Claus dives in for the 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. interactive dive shows Saturdays and Sundays joining hundreds of his fishy friends for a special holiday-themed show. SCUBA Claus will also make special appearances during those dive shows on Dec. 22 and 23.


No December would be complete without viewing the holiday classic The Polar Express 4-D Experience. When a doubting young  boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonders of life never fades for those who believe. The Aquarium's 4-D theater experience makes you feel as if you are part of the movie. Experience falling snow, the rumbling of the train and even the enticing smell of hot chocolate! 4-D tickets can be purchased with a Premier Pass to the Aquarium, or individually.
