Trick or Treat

What’s a Halloween party without trick or treating? Kids can follow the special Halloween Spooktacular pathways to different stations filled with a wide array of sweets and treats as fun loving sea creatures greet and mingle with guests. Your kids will rave about getting their favorite type of candy at SeaWorld!

Penelope’s Garden Party

Featuring a live DJ, arts and crafts, bubbles galore, and sea-themed characters, kids love partying with Penelope. Located on SeaWorld’s Bayside Pathway, kids can participate in a myriad of Halloween and underwater-themed activities.

Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween

All your favorite Sesame Street characters are getting ready for Halloween at the SeaWorld Spooktacular. This year, the Count is feeling a little lonely and your friends from Sesame Street need your help to get him back into the Halloween Spirit. Kids love this family-friendly show filled with batty bats, spooky skeletons, and lots of dancing. Remember to sing along, too!

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular: Know Before You Go

To make the most of your SeaWorld Spooktacular experience, here’s a few things you need to know before your trip.

Weekends Only

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular takes place every weekend from September 22 – October 28, 2018. The event is not held Monday through Friday.

Wear Your Costume

Guests are invited to dress up in costumes when visiting SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular. However, for the safety of all guests, only children 12 and under are able to wear masks. And, all costumes are subject to the theme park’s dress code. Face painting is also only permitted if done by one of the park’s artists. Of course, please choose your costumes wisely as this is a family-friendly event focused on providing not-so-scary Halloween fun for kids.

No Extra Ticket Needed

While many Orlando theme park Halloween events require a special ticket, SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular does not. All of the friendly fun is included in your park admission!

Plan Your SeaWorld Spooktacular Getaway this Halloween

For the best value, purchase a money-saving SeaWorld vacation package. In addition to already discounted SeaWorld tickets (which include access to the Halloween Spooktacular event), you’ll receive more savings on Orlando area hotels.
