SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular has become a Halloween tradition for my family.  For this year’s visit, the girls wanted to wear the real costumes, like the ones they would wear trick-or-treating on Halloween night.  Thankfully, I shopped early and bought their costumes.  Otherwise, they would be wearing whatever dress-up clothes or pumpkin shirts I could find in their closets.

For this year’s Spooktacular event, SeaWorld added Penelope’s Party Zone, located at SeaWorld’s Bayside Stage.  In this lively underwater environment, kids (and even big kids like me) can flap their flippers and shake their tails while immersed in the wonders of the sea with kid-friendly music, games and colorful characters.

Countless bubbles floated overhead and colorful pumpkin fish and other sea-themed characters glided around the party zone.  Truly, this underwater Halloween dance party was non-stop fun for all ages.


Once inside Penelope’s Party Zone, we found fun new craft stations that offered something each of my girls could enjoy.  At the Apple Decorating Post, kids and parents alike can dive into some sweet fun by creating their own tasty treats.  Large tasty apples can be dipped into decadently flavored sauces, such as white chocolate, fudge, or caramel and then topped with sprinkles and other candies and sweets.

The Apple Decorating Post was certainly the apple of my candy apple lover’s eye.

My little artist, Allana, loved the Spooky Sand Art Station.  Allana and Emmalynn worked together to create and decorate a sea glass and sand seahorse Plaster of Paris sculpture .

And of course, like previous years, there were lots of candy stations to visit for trick-or-treating.

As previous years, they healthy trick-or-treating stations as an alternative to all the candy, such as peanuts.

But Emmalynn was really happy to see that the baby bananas back this year.

Although my children absolute adore SeaWorld and all the fun SeaWorld’s Halloween Spootacular offers , I love that all the trick-or-treating stations, Halloween shows and character spots are included in a one-day admission to SeaWorld.

That definitely puts the happy in my Halloween.
