Santa is inviting kids to a very different kind of holiday party – Holiday Splash at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island. During the park’s Holiday Splash, which takes place weekends and select dates from November 28, 2014 through January 4, 2015, Santa is giving surf lessons to kids on the Boogie Bahn. Kids can also make holiday ornaments, swim in an artificial snow storm, and enjoy a sprinkle of holiday cheer at the new Holiday Splash event at Schlitterbahn Indoor Waterpark on Galveston Island, Texas.
Here’s a list of the activities – in addition to all the rides at Schlitterbahn’s indoor waterpark:
Surfing with Santa: Santa will hop on a bodyboard and surfs the wave to show off his tricks, then he helps little ones learn to surf in a brief one-on-one lesson. Kids have the opportunity to meet Santa in this unique way four times a day through Tuesday, December 23, 2014.
Ornament Time: Schlitterbahn’s Ornament Factory gives kids a break from the heated indoor waterpark fun by putting their creative skills to work. Children make holiday ornaments at the park and enter them in an Instagram contest for a chance to win a 2015 season pass.
Snow in the Gulf? While snow is pretty rare in Galveston, guests at Holiday Splash will have a chance each day to surf or ride the tidal waves of the Torrent River under artificial snow showers.
The park is decked with boughs of garland, lights and holiday décor, and a friendly snowman and happy reindeer greet children all day. Guests also have the option to buy the discounted Holiday Grill & Thrill package online to add an all-you-can-eat catered picnic lunch to their day for just a few dollars more than the admission price.
It’s the Coolest Hottest time in Galveston this Holiday season. Best prices for tickets are available online. Visit http://www.schlitterbahn.com/galveston for more details.
