SeaWorld Orlando’s Spooktacular Event takes place every weekend during the month of October.  I had the pleasure of experiencing this fun, and only slightly spooky, event recently.  From animal encounters, whimsical pumpkins and trick-or-treating, to character meets and the Sesame Street Countdown to Halloween Show, there is something here for everyone.

When I arrived to the event I had to check in.  I was told that there are maps along the path.  If you wish to have a paper map of the park be sure to pick one up at the front entrance.  To follow the trick-or-treat path, just look for the “Enter Here” signs with the candy corn base.

The animal encounters were quite interesting.  These beautiful creatures were visible outside amongst the people, which was really a special way to experience a visual encounter with them.  The most popular animal, amongst the younger set, was the miniature owl.

There were whimisical pumpkins in various locations around the park.  Each location presented a fun photo opportunity.

There were plenty of trick-or-treat stations along the trick-or-treat path.  The SeaWorld Team Members were energetic and had a smile at the ready when you said the magic words; “Trick-or-Treat.”  You are able to go back to the stations as often as you like.  Be aware that there are a lot of stations and the path is actually quite long.  Great fun for the little ones!

All along the extensive event path, you will meet a variety of characters.  They interact with the children by asking them questions, telling jokes, dancing, and posing for photos with them.

There are many photo opportunities throughout the park.  Just look along the path and see what you can find.

The trick-or-treat bags are really adorable.  I felt compelled to have my bag take a selfie with one of the whimsical pumpkins on display.

The Sesame Street Countdown to Halloween stage show was my favorite part of the event.  The characters were cute and funny.  The Count was slightly spooky, as only he can be.  There are some darkened moments during the show.  However, it is never completely dark.  Each part of the show is set to music and children can sing and dance along too. I can assure you that you will have “The Monster Mash” stuck in your head for days!

SeaWorld Orlando’s Spooktacular is a wonderful family friendly event.  I recommend this for anyone with young children.  Be sure to dress up in a fun costume and be prepared to have fun.
