Halloween at Sea World

So I just noticed today that there are some sort of Halloween festivities going on the day we are there. The website seems pretty vague so I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on this and what sort of things we should try to add into our day.

What is the Sesame Street show like? We are travelling with two 6yr olds and an 8 year old who are not current, or former, Sesame Street fans. Would they still enjoy the show?

I'd so appreciate anything you can tell me about doing Halloween at Sea World. Thanks so much!

Probably the most important thing to know - it is free. No paying for an extra ticket like certain other parks. It is on the 4 weekends in October from noon until 8 PM.

They will open the Bayside Pathway at noon, and much of the events will take place along there.

Bayside Stadium has a party zone, with music, games, and characters. Everything is geared towards the younger crowd. There are trick or treat stations along the pathway, curving around Shamu Stadium, and going almost as far as Nautilus Theater. The candy changes at times, but there are "name" brands like Junior Mints and Tootsie Rolls and Twizzlers and then some brands that while I may not know, the kids might be all into, such as Black Forest Gummies and Airheads. They generally will have bags to use for trick or treating, and you do not have to be a kid or have kids to get goodies.

There is a special Halloween show starring the Sesame Street characters that will take place where the Pets Ahoy show normally occurs. It is a cute show, and I don't believe that any knowledge of the characters would be required before seeing it. There is also a new Dine With Shamu Brunch that will happen, I don't have a lot of info on this since it is the first year, but I understand you will get a photo with a special frame, a cookie decorating kit, and a trick or treat bag already filled with goodies. This happens at 10:30 on Saturdays.

In the past they also have had a cookie decorating area, where you could purchase a large cookie and decorate it yourself. I am not sure if they will have it again, but since it is being advertised as part of the Dine with Shamu, they must be.

New this year also will be a special area just for Pass Members, it will be in the Ports of Call area and will have some candy available only in there. It is going to be held only on select weekends. If you attend 2 or 3 different weekends you will also receive some other special items.

We have Platinum Busch Garden passes and usually go to Orlando every October. My kids LOVE the Halloween Spooktacular! Trick-or-treat. Dance party with a DJ and hoola-hoops. Arts and Crafts. Decorate a cookie is a hit (and reasonably priced)! Sometimes, there is an animal ambassador - last year it was a tiny owl (so cute!) There are lots of cast members in colorful sea creature outfits - some on stilts and bouncing boots. Very high energy! Last year, there was an area at the stadium where kids were able to make a sand mold to decorate and take home. Also very reasonably priced. Even if we don't have a shoe day to spend at Seaworld we always find a few hours to attend the Halloween Spooktacular. Plan about 2-3 hours (depending if your kids want to make a cookie, do a craft project and/or participate in the dance party).

Can't wait to see the new pass member area!

How young is this for? I have teens, but girls, they have no interest in adult or scary Halloween stuff. We usually do Disney's Halloween party, and are planning on being there the weekend of the 24th of October, just wondered if it would be worth incorporating this into our trip or if it would be "too babyish" for a 14 and 16 year old? They love Seaworld and we are platinum pass holders, so I like the cost savings for it.

It's for younger kids probably 2-10 age group. But I've seen teenagers and even adults going around to the trick or treating stations to get candy. And who doesn't like free candy? lol.
