How to Have Spooktacular Halloween Fun at SeaWorld San Diego

by Mommy Frog on October 28, 2015 2 San Diego

The Frog Family recently enjoyed a weekend celebrating Halloween Spooktacular at SeaWorld San Diego. On weekends in October and through November 1, 2015, you and your little goblins and ghouls can trick-or-treat, wear costumes and attend special Halloween-themed dance parties and other fall fun activities at SeaWorld in San Diego and Orlando.

I don't know about yours, but my tadpoles never pass up a chance to wear their costumes. After Leap and I survived our terrifying visit to Universal Horror Nights, Sea World’s gentle Halloween Spooktacular was the right speed for some wholesome Halloween family fun.

Why We Love Halloween Spooktacular at SeaWorld San Diego

Chomp Candy from Trick-or-Treating

There are several trick-or-treat stations around the park, each offering a different type of name brand candy. Halloween Spooktacular candy gift bags are provided at each station if you need them. We saw everyone participating from toddlers to teens — some teens in costume! — and parents too. The stations are marked out on the park map and most had no lines at all. Trick-or-treat stations open at 11 a.m. Our favorite costume was a boy in a penguin suit with a bucket and sign that read, “fish or treat.” Toadally cute and displaying great SeaWorld spirit!

Lily loved hopping around to the beat of the music with some costumed DJs, sea creature dancers and a lot of other small children. Surrounding the dance floor was a festive fall atmosphere where you could pay to paint a pumpkin, meet and take a photo with a mermaid, play Halloween carnival games, and play with Kinetic Sand. The sand was our favorite color—green!

Watch Some Spooktacular Halloween Shows 

There are some family-friendly Halloween shows. If you have little Sesame Street fans, then join Elmo, Zoe, Cookie, Abby,and Telly in a stage show, Who Said Boo? Animal lovers will enjoy seeing Sea Lions in Clyde and Seamore’s Big Halloween Bash. All of the other shows and exhibits are open during the event, so be sure to check those out too.

Eat or Decorate Halloween Treats

In addition to all the free candy you can collect, there were other fun treats as well. You can purchase Halloween cookie decorating kits, orange cotton candy and some spooky desserts in the bakery. You can also do a little Halloween shopping in some stores.

Enjoy Halloween Décor

While the park does not get as decked out as Disneyland at Halloween Time, you’ll find Halloween signs and festive fall decorations scattered around the park. The Halloween festivities are a nice bonus to a day in the park. Be sure to check out the many jack-o-lanterns at Shark Encounter.

Save Money

Here is a money-saving bonus: Kids are admitted free in October 2015, and you don’t need any additional ticket to attend the Halloween festivities, which only occur on Saturdays and Sundays during regular park hours. Don’t splurge on premium parking. We arrived before park opening but we still ended up parking just a few rows back but right in front of the entrance.

Mid-fall is a great time to visit SeaWorld. The weather is a tad bit cooler and more comfortable, and the summer crowds are gone. Soon there will be more celebrations to come. Right on the tailfins of Halloween comes SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. The Christmas Celebration kicks off in the third week of November. So if it is too late to visit the Halloween Spectacular, now you know to plan ahead for weekends in October next year or maybe hit the Christmas Celebration in the meantime if you just can’t wait another year.

I follow undercover through a few social media sights. I am a Disney Fan and love your coverage, but would enjoy a few more on Sea World. I love Disney and I stand with Sea World. Thanks!
