SeaWorld Spooktacular is Back!

Where can kids meet some fun and funny Halloween characters, pose for pictures with mesmerizing mermaids and trick-or-treat in a sea-inspired atmosphere? It’s all happening at SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular®, where Halloween meets the sea. Also, kids can visit the park for free in October with the purchased of a full-priced adult admission. Don't forget SeaWorld offers free single day admission for active duty military members and up to 3 dependents.

This past weekend we were able to check out the festivities with a few other blogger families! Our morning began with a delicious breakfast of crepes, breakfast burritos, fresh fruit, and more! Executive Chef of SeaWorld San Diego, Axel Dirolf, always prepares great eats during our visits!

We then had some up-close interactions with a few creepy critters, just in time for Halloween!

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular festivities are geared for kids 12 years and under, who are invited to come in costume and enjoy trick-or-treating and colorful costumed characters from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the following weekends in October.  

The hub of Halloween Spooktacular is Otto and Penelope’s Pumpkinfish Patch (on the lawn in front of Animal Connections), where kids can decorate cookies, paint pumpkins and meet a crazy cast of characters such as Colonel Cornelius Candy Corn, a spirited explorer accompanied by his female friend Lady Candy Corn. 

Also new this year are DJs Rock Candy and Cotton Candy, who get the party started and keep it going all day during Halloween Spooktacular, playing music and leading activities. Back by popular demand are Allure and Capri, beautiful mermaids that pose for photo ops; Goodie and Greta Gumdrop; and a silly School of Fish. 

Kids are encouraged to come in costume to trick or treat among 10 sea-themed stations. Trick-or-treat bags are provided! 

Thanks to our great friends at SeaWorld San Diego for a wonderful time at Spooktacular! Make sure your family doesn't miss the the great Halloween fun at SeaWorld
