October 14, 2022
Check out this year’s Spooktacular activities at SeaWorld Orlando to fall into fun! Here are 5 tips and tricks to make your visit fun and memorable.
If you’re searching for family-friendly Halloween fun during the day, look no further than Spooktacular—the can’t-miss event for kids and kids at heart! From trick-or-treating and great photo opportunities to seeing colorful customed characters around the park, it’s a perfect way to enjoy the season together without all the scares. Bring the whole family and load up on sweet treats and sweeter memories. Here are a few tips and tricks to help make your Spooktacular visit unforgettable!

1. Purchase a reusable trick-or-treat bag at one of our gift shops
Cauldrons of candy and ghoulish goodies await you! The trick-or-treat trail is a returning favorite and a hallmark of Spooktacular. Choose a cute reusable bag featuring one of your favorite sea creatures so you can explore the trail and collect sweets from 12 different stations. You’ll meet fun characters along the way, and you might even see a few “fubbles” (bubbles filled with fog)!

2. Check the schedule for special shows and activities
Spooktacular has surprises around every corner if you know where (and when) to look! Stop by our Pumpkin Garden to hear enchanting fairytales. Meet a colorful mermaid in her shell and ask about her undersea life. Or join the Scarecrow Halloween Dance Party in the Journey to Atlantis Plaza, featuring an amazing DJ and cast of dancers like no other. Consult the park schedule to see specific times when events like these and others are happening!

3. Visit your favorite pals over at Sesame Street Land
If there are fans of Sesame Street® in your family, you’ll love seeing your favorite furry friends dressed up in their Halloween best! Visit Sesame Street Land this fall to catch Count von Count, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and all their friends in the colorful, musical, not-too-spooky Sesame Street Halloween Parade. Be sure to check the park schedule to see specific parade times.

4. Grab a bite to eat with Count von Count
Start your day in a delicious way at Count von Count’s Spooktacular Breakfast! Meet The Count and other furry friends as you dine on morning favorites like omelets, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, and more. Bring your whole family to enjoy the most important meal of the day in a whole new way! Be sure to reserve your spot for this unforgettable breakfast experience in advance.

5. Enjoy fall crafts and cookie decorating
Take a break from the festivities to enjoy complimentary fall-inspired crafts in the Wild Arctic area! Bring the whole family and have fun coloring and decorating your very own scarecrows to take home. For an additional fee, cookie decorating kits are also available so you can put a creative twist on a fun and tasty treat!
