The Top 5 was invited to a Spooky Media Day to sample Sea World‘s new Halloween Spooktacular. This is the perfect event for your little one, especially since it is during daytime hours (12 p m – 8 pm daily). Featuring several special areas, including a pink and purple maze featuring Sesame Street’s Abby Cadabby and a cookie decoration table, wee ones can trick-or-treat through the Spooktacular Zone.
Sea World spared no expense with the character costumes, reminiscent of La Nouba designs, and visitors can pose for photo ops with a plethora of happy pumpkin fish, silly bugs, and fishy characters on stilts and skates. There were tons of smiling faces as children danced to music with a DJ in the Polar Bear Zone and played one of the many carnival-style games. Or children could get their energy out by climbing on a colorful ship or making their way through the largest crawl rope and tunnel maze I have ever seen. The entire Spooktacular seemed to be designed around pleasing little ones in a fanciful manner, and I believed Sea World succeeded!
And, for those older children who need a bigger thrill, there’s always the three rockin’ roller coasters as well as the penguins, dolphins, and sharks… oh my!
