I think the only thing that could make SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular more entertaining would be if they put the marine life in costumes. Can you imagine Shamu dressed up as a cowboy or the Penguins dressed like ballerinas? All joking aside the event, which is included in park admission every weekend in October from 12-8PM, is a terrific treat for children of all ages.
You won’t find anything scary at this Orlando attraction, simply non-spooky fun. It’s actually more whimsical than anything else. Scattered throughout the SeaWorld pathways you’ll see colorful characters like Sea Witches, Mermaids and schools of brightly colored fish. By schools of fish, I mean actual schools of fish, with a teacher, textbooks and all.
There are so many Seaworld’s Halloween Spooktacular Special Events to make your day a hit such as:
Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween Show your little ones can visit with Elmo and all his friends.
Penelope’s Play Zone where for $5.50 your son or daughter can decorate a delicious sugar cookie with frosting, Reeses Pieces and sprinkles. Down at the bottom of the stadium there is a DJ just begging the kids to come and dance amongst floating bubbles. Once they get tired they can relax at the craft zone.
Finally the best part of the day is the Trick or Treating. Throughout the entire park there are Sweets and Treats stations with candy like Fun Dip, Jelly Belly Candy Corn, Tootsie Rolls, Lemonheads and so much more.
Our favorite part was as always, the 2 hours we spend at the Shamu’s Happy Harbour. It doesn’t matter what else is going on in the park, my kids just want to play play play. My least favorite part was forgetting where I parked my car and wandering aimlessly for way too long. Be sure to check the Parking Lot signs before you step away folks, that’s my tip for you.
