We love Sea World’s Spooktacular Halloween because it doesn’t cost any extra to get into the park and there are so many fun things to do! For the cost of a regular park ticket you get to take part in all the following:
Penelope’s Party Zone: A lively underwater environment immerses children in the wonders of the sea through family-friendly music, crafts, games, and colorful characters. Located at SeaWorld’s Bayside stadium, this zone comes to life when families dance and play along to the spooky sound waves broadcasted by a live DJ. With countless bubbles floating overhead and colorful pumpkinfish gliding beside, this Halloween party is sure to provide non-stop fun for all ages.
Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween: Sing and dance along with all of your favorite Sesame Street friends. Don’t miss this live musical stage show featuring Count Von Count, Elmo, and his new friends, too!
Become a Spooktacular Sea Star Celebrity: The Spooktacular paparazzi are waiting for you at Penelope’s Photacular (located on Bayside Pathway between Bayside Stadium and Wild Arctic). Wear your most sensational costume for a glamorous photo shoot, then watch as your photo may become part of the virtual costume parade during the Spooktacular pre-show for Shamu Rocks (be sure to arrive 30 minutes prior to Shamu Rocks).
Trick or Treat Sweets: SeaWorld offers children the ultimate in safe and exciting trick-or-treat fun. Kids can follow their special Spooktacular maps to many different stations throughout the event, each featuring treats galore. With over 15 candy stations and a wide array of sweets and treats, kids will be swimming in Spooktacular goodies.
Seven Seas Railway: It’s “all aboard” with Otto the Octopus as our youngest guests enjoy a whimsical train ride in Shamu’s Happy Harbor.
And for a bit of extra money you can do the following:
Apple & Crispy Rice Treat Decorating: Whether you choose a caramel apple or a chocolate covered rice crispy, splash into creativity with toppings galore. Candy corn, sprinkles, marshmallows, licorice, gummy brains, and candy pieces create a palette of fun for all ages!
Count Von Count Spooktacular Breakfast: 1-2-3… Dine with me! Don’t walk around on an empty stomach, stay 1 step ahead of hunger! What goes great with your 2 morning eggs? How about infinite hugs from Count Von Count, Elmo and all of his furry friends!

My kids have so much fun doing all of these things. It was a real “treat” to come across the new train and they made their Grandma ride with them. That huge playground is the best way to relax, for the parents of course, while the kids climb and ride for probably well over an hour. If they are tall enough they can ride the rides by themselves.
Over at Penelope’s Jason and Spencer had an absolute blast dancing with the DJ and having a hula hooping contest. After that was over they did a fun craft which is proudly stuck to our walls as we speak. They also decorated an apple and a rice krispie treat. I highly recommend you bring a wet washcloth in a zip lock bag if you plan to take part in this activity. It melts so fast and goes everywhere. There is no way to keep your child clean. But they have a great time doing it.
On the way out we did the trick or treating. The lines look long but move very fast so don’t be hesitant to wait. The candy is great too, some of the things they give the kids are full sized. They don’t give too much chocolate since it melts fast, so plan on a lot of Smarties and gummy type candies.
Hope you enjoy Sea World’s Halloween Spooktacular as much as my family! You have two weekends left. To learn more visit
