Where can kids meet some spooky and not-so-spooky animals, pose for pictures with mesmerizing mermaids and trick-or-treat in a sea-inspired atmosphere? It’s all part of SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular, where Halloween meets the sea! Don’t miss the last weekend of this exciting event taking place on October 27 & 28, 2012.
Festivities are geared for kids 12 years and under, who are invited to come in costume and enjoy animal meet and greets, special Halloween shows and colorful costumed characters. Here’s a detailed look at some of the Spooktacular fun:
- Trick-or-Treat Sweets
Kids are encouraged to come in costume and use their Spooktacular maps to trick or treat at sea-themed stations. An assortment of candy and healthy treats will be provided.
- Connect With Animals
Meet a variety of spooky and not-so-spooky animals at Animal Connections near Seaport Marketplace. Trainers will be on hand to dispel myths about animals and why they are misunderstood.
- Sea Lion and Otter Show
“Clyde & Seamore’s Spooky Adventure,” at Sea Lion and Otter Stadium, is a new specially-themed show with a blast to the past. If you remembered the show back in the 1980s, then you’ll want to revisit sea lions Clyde and Seamore and their buddy O.P. Otter for all the kooky fun as they are mysteriously transported back to Uncle Smedley’s Castle.
- Sesame-themed show
“Countdown to Halloween,” at Sesame Street’s Bay of Play musical stage, features Count Von Count, Elmo and friends. Kids can also capture photos of their favorite Sesame character and enjoy interactive games.

Guests will be treated to an Octopus Candy Garden with brightly colored tentacles and candy treats; photo ops with their favorite Sesame Street characters; and SeaWorld costume characters also will be on hand to get everyone into the Halloween spirit.
- 4-D movie
“Pirates 4-D,” a wacky film adventure about a pirate captain and his bumbling crew, plays at the park’s Mission Bay Theater.
