Costumes, Candy, And Family-Friendly Halloween Fun Return At SeaWorld San Diego’s Spooktacular Celebration

SeaWorld San Diego is celebrating Halloween with family-friendly fun at this year’s annual SeaWorld Spooktacular. Children of all ages will love trick-or-treating for ghoulish goodies during this daytime event as they explore SeaWorld San Diego in their Halloween costumes, walk through the decorated candy trail and meet a cast of colorful and not-so-spooky characters.

Seaworld Spooktacular

The event runs every Saturday and Sunday from September 17 through October 30, plus Halloween Monday on October 31. The days will be full of immersive and family-friendly activities to get into the Halloween spirit.

Trick-or-Treating Around SeaWorld San Diego

Children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat for candy and snacks along the park’s trick-or-treat candy trail. Each candy station along the trail features an assortment of sweet and salty favorites. A SeaWorld trick-or-trick bag is required and will be available to purchase to participate in trick-or-treating.

Please note that guests who are ages 13 and older may not wear costume masks or hoods, and all costumes are subject to the normal dress code for the park. In addition, face painting is not permitted on any guests unless it is done by park artists.

SeaWorld Spooktacular Family-Friendly Halloween Experiences

Spooktacular will feature a variety of fun, family-friendly Halloween activities perfect for a spooky, fall day. Children of all ages will love meeting friendly Halloween mermaids in a special immersive experience along the trick-or-treat trail.

Guests can also join a cast of silly characters for a Halloween Dance Party featuring popular Halloween-themed songs and family-friendly games like limbo, freeze dance, and more.

Next to the dance party is a festive hay maze where families can explore and meet some fun fall characters along the way.

Families can also participate in a fun Spooktacular Pumpkin Hunt throughout the park! A map can be purchased at The SeaWorld Store to help track down SeaWorld and Halloween inspired painted pumpkins – plus, families that participate can exchange the completed map for a special prize!

Back by popular demand, SeaWorld Spooktacular will also include the celebration of the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos. Large, beautifully dressed Catrina statues will welcome guests as they discover ofrendas (offerings) of mementos and flowers honoring loved ones who have passed. There will also be traditional food options available for purchase in the park.
