ZZZs in the Seas Holiday Sleepover

Picture of holiday sleepover

Celebrate the holiday season with a one-of-a-kind sleepover at the Oklahoma Aquarium! Guests can drink from a hot cocoa station, take pictures with Santa, make holiday ornaments at a decoration station, eat cookies and candy canes, and go on a flashlight tour of the aquarium decorated in thousands of glittering holiday lights. Plus, spend the night with a sea turtle, sharks, and thousands of other fish "while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads"! All guests will receive a special holiday gift from our fish friends to take home after a light continental breakfast. Book your reservation today!
