Universal Studios Hollywood and City Walk has been transformed for this most wonderful time of the year with a Grinchmas celebration as the theme park celebrates the Who-lidays with The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and a roster of Whos from the town of Who-ville.
Entertainment will include concerts, nightly snowfall and special appearances by the big guy himself when Santa Claus takes a break from the North Pole to make an appearance.
Grinchmas runs this weekend December 12-13, then continues daily December 18, 2015, through January 3, 2016.
Universal Plaza will serve as the backdrop for the lighting of the Grinchmas tree, which stands 60-feet above visitors and provides the ideal setting for making holiday memories, while The Grinch, his dog Max and the Who-ville Whos entertain guests with fun-filled photo opportunities.
The Grinchmas event will capture guests’ imagination with a variety of inspiring activities designed to create long-lasting memories. These include:
Who-ville Post Office—Visitors will have a chance to partake in the “Grow Your Heart 3 Sizes” campaign when they share their good deeds on a postcard and mail them to The Grinch. In return, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. and Random House Children’s Books, the publishers of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, will pay it forward by donating a book to a child in need through First Book on behalf of the sender.
Trim up the Tree Lot—Guests can design and personalize their own Grinchmas ornaments to help decorate the venue’s other Grinchmas trees or take them home as a keepsake.
Who-bilicious Cookie Dec-Who-rating—Freshly baked gingerbread and Christmas tree cookies will be available for purchase, and guests can create their very own amazing treats with an assortment of delectable frostings and tasty toppers.
Story Time with Cindy-Lou Who—Cindy-Lou Who and her Who friends will gather guests of all ages—tall and small—for an engaging storytelling show of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, featuring special effects and audience participation.
Grinchmas is included in the price of theme park admission. More information is available at www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com.
