ORLANDO, FLORIDA — Designers at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration have been busy creating the dazzling “Sea of Trees” — 114 giant, illuminated trees in the park’s center lake — in preparation for the holiday special event opening.

A returning fan favorite, the “Sea of Trees” is the dazzling centerpiece of the 200-acre park that is decked with holiday lights, décor, shows and attractions.

This video shows the behind-the-scenes creation of the festive forest.

SeaWorld’s dazzling Sea of Trees features:

  • 8 miles of garland.
  • 8 miles of cable that control the choreographed lights.
  • It would take over 3 million household Christmas lights to create our Sea of Trees performance.
  • Over 100 lighted trees.
  • Heights ranging from 10 to 22 feet.
  • Trees are planted in up to 14 feet of water.
  • SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration is included in park admission and takes place Nov. 21-22, 27-29, and Dec. 4-6, 11-13, 18-31.
