Halloween meets the sea in October during SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular. Pumpkin fishes and friendly sea witches stroll the enchanted pathways of Spooktacular Trail, providing a family-friendly trick-or-treat opportunity.

Kids are encouraged to wear a costume and Trick-or-Treat for an array of sweet treats, but whether you wear a costume or not... it's an ocean full of fun adventures!

Spooktacular Highlights

(Kits are available for a small charge.)

Each station features an array of sweet treats, including a variety of candies and healthy choice options like Pretzel Crisps and Chiquita Mini bananas.

Spooktacular Tips

  • Your child's costume should be suitable for the weather. A child that is too hot or too cold will not have a good time (and, neither will their parents).
  • SeaWorld provides bags for Trick-or-Treating, but your little ones will tire of carrying them the entire length of your visit. Bring along a tote to combine them into one easy-to-carry bag.
  • Most of the treat stations are situated for easiest access from the front of the park, but can be accessed from either end of the trail.
  • You may find Spooktacular Trail least busy just after opening and again just before the area closes.
  • Don't forget your camera! You will want to savor these special memories that are sure to be cherished for a very long time.
