Halloween is quickly approaching and parks are slowly starting to reveal details about their halloween events, even the not so scary ones. Today is no different as we learn the details of Seaworld’s Halloween event, Seaworld’s Halloween Spooktacular.

Seaworld’s Halloween Spooktacular is a complete contrast to Howl-o-Scream at their sister park, Busch Gardens Tampa. This event caters specifically to kids with lots of fun-filled activities that are included with park admission. Some items, such as the sleepover, breakfast with the Count, and cookie decorating cost extra.
