    Seaworld Spooktacular

    SeaWorld Orlando invites families to dive in and explore an underwater “fantasea” at SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular. Lifetime memories are created during Central Florida’s ultimate family-friendly event where children can trick-or-treat, dance with fanciful sea creatures, and create sea-themed arts and crafts. Back and better than ever this year, SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular returns with added trick-or-treat stations and even more colorful characters.

    The best part of SeaWorld’s offerings is that they’re included with your regular park admission. You have to go 45 minutes south to Legoland for the same sort of activities. The spooktacular runs every weekend in October.
