National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Dome Experience

From: 06:00 PM to 11:00 PM, December 16, 2021 | Exploration Place

This is a full blown, four alarmed holiday emergency and we are fully prepared to have the hap-hap-happiest dome experience this side of the nuthouse.

Grab Cousin Eddie and join us for an exclusive viewing and party celebrating all things Christmas Vacation! Experience this iconic holiday classic like you’ve never seen it before – centered on the soaring dome screen with booming surround sound. It’s a beaut not to be missed, Clark.

Enjoy a cash bar with themed cocktails for those over 21, a fully stocked snack bar, costume contest, prizes and more.

Are you a Griswold super-fan? Sign up for the VIP Experience and receive priority seating in the dome theater, popcorn, a complimentary cocktail (or a “mocktail” if under 21), and surprise goodies to take home. There will only be 75 VIP tickets sold per showing! It’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.

The Explore Store will be open throughout the evening to finish up your holiday shopping. Enjoy free gift wrapping and seasonal drinks. Exploration Place members receive 10 percent off your Explore Store purchase!

We hope this adds to your enjoyment of the holidays.

Throw on your blue leisure suit and bring the missus. It’s time for Sparky to dedicate the dome to the Griswold Family Christmas!
