Socially Distanced Santa Claus At Wildlights

This year’s Santa experience at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium’s Wildlights has been completely reimagined to comply with CDC safety guidelines. Guests will have the ability to speak with Santa Claus while socially distanced, as well as get a photo looking out a window while Santa is in his sleigh and a few of his reindeer adorn the “housetop.” This custom-made setting was inspired by the “Up on the Housetop” song written by Columbus’ own Benjamin Hanby in 1864. Masks are required for those medically able and reservations are encouraged as only 10 people at a time will be allowed in the facility.
