Grinchmas™ at Universal’s Islands of Adventure®
Several generations have grown up with the grumpy green guy; the irritable elf created by Dr. Seuss in his story of How the Grinch stole Christmas, first published back in 1957.
At Universal’s Islands of Adventure®, the whimsical and colourful world created at its Seuss Landing™ area sees the installation of Grinchmas™
(December 5 to January 2), the antidote to Christmas saccharine from the character known for his hatred of all things festive.
For all those who love a bad guy, there’s a live retelling of the classic tale in
The Grinchmas™ WHO-liday Spectactuar, with the story’s characters running around both on stage and off. Fans can also get up close to the Grinch™, obtain his autograph and have a photo taken with his horribleness.
You can even start your day in Dr. Seuss’s imaginative world with The Grinch™ and Friends Character Breakfast, a hearty feast in a circus-themed eatery (tickets and reservations required).
In the successful 2000 film of the Seuss story, Jim Carrey famously played the man-sized elf who descends from his mountain hideaway to pinch decorations and gifts from the Whos – but to his annoyance the citizens continue to be cheery on Christmas day.
A moral worth underlining to any youngster who moans about not getting enough or the right presents!
Universal’s Islands of Adventure® is a drive of approximately 25 minutes from CLC Encantada, check the park website for more and latest information.
