The Ronald McDonald House Visits Scuba Santa!

Children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey had a blast visiting Scuba Santa on Monday!

The children—many of whom might not be able to go home for Christmas this year while they seek treatment at local area hospitals for serious illnesses and other health disabilities—arrived before the aquarium opened for an exclusive meet and greet with Scuba Santa, before watching him dive into the aquarium’s 760,000-gallon Ocean Realm.

After the meet and greet, the children and their families had the opportunity to explore Adventure Aquarium’s eight new underwater holiday light exhibits and visit both the World’s Tallest Underwater Christmas Tree and the World’s Smallest Underwater Christmas Tree. They also had the opportunity to dance and play in the wonder of the aquarium’s indoor snow flurries!

We were thrilled to be able to offer a unique Christmas Underwater experience for these special families—who’ve spent the year battling the challenges, emotions and disruptions that come with childhood diseases—and are so glad they could join us to celebrate and enjoy the magic of Christmas.

We can’t wait to have more families join us again for Christmas Underwater next year!
