SeaWorld Orlando’s Halloween Spooktacular opens this weekend on October 1, 2016.  Bring the family for a fun-filled day, or weekend, of trick-or-treating, a Spooktacular Dance Party, Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween show, animal encounters, and sea-themed arts and crafts.  You can also pay a small fee to reserve a Spooktacular Brunch, a meet and greet with Cookie Monster, and reserved seating for the Countdown to Halloween Show.


SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular will take place every weekend October 1-30 from 12:00pm to park close. Halloween Spooktacular, like all special events at SeaWorld, is included with your park admission.

Spooktacular Highlights include:

Waves of Trick-or-Treat Fun~Children can, but are not required to, wear costumes while trick-or-treating for ghoulish goodies. Each trick-or-treat station is fashioned with a sea-theme where children will receive a variety of candy favorites such as Tootsie Roll and SunRype Fruit to Go.

Penelope’s Garden Party~This dynamic “underwater” environment comes to life each weekend with a DJ, bubbles floating overhead, animal interactions, crafts, and whimsical sea-themed characters.

Sesame Street’s Countdown to Halloween~Join Sesame Street friends including The Count, Elmo, and Abby as they celebrate a Spooktacular Halloween.  Your job, as a member of the audience, is to help The Count get into the spirit of Halloween. Become part of this stage show by dancing and singing along with the characters of Sesame Street.

Spooktacular Dance Party~Join Princess Penelope and her under-the-sea friends for a Spooktacular Dance Party.  Clouds of bubbles fill the night sky as guests line-dance the evening away.  The party kicks off one hour before park closing at the Village Square in the front of the park.
