It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in July at Zoombezi Bay!

During this weeklong celebration, presented by Wendy’s, Central Ohio’s wildest waterpark will be decking the halls (even with special “snow flurries”) and pouring on the holiday cheer July 22 through July 28.

Each day of the Christmas in July celebration will feature festive activities from 10:30 AM until 5 PM, with the waterpark staying open until 8 PM. (or 11 PM during the Family Nights promotion). Activities include: meet and greets with Santa and Mrs. Claus dressed in their summer best, Wendy’s prize giveaways, holiday character meet and greets, a Club Kringle dance party and games. Christmas in July guests can also purchase special treats (while supplies last) such as peppermint ice cream and frozen hot chocolate, as well as receive discounts on select retail items during the celebration.

On Friday, July 27, the Christmas in July fun will continue into the late night as part of Zoombezi Bay’s Family Nights promotion. Beginning at 5 PM, guests can watch their favorite Central Ohio waterpark transform as the sun goes down and their favorite attractions become even more thrilling in the dark. Some favorite rides and attractions, including Cyclone, SoundSurfer, Big Boa Falls and more, will be open until 11 PM for thrill-seekers who wish to enjoy some extra splash time in the park. At 9 PM, the Wild Tides Wave Pool will transform into an aqua-theater for a special showing of “The Grinch (2018),” a holiday favorite.
