Will Sea World be crazy the Saturday before Halloween? I like the idea of the Spooktacular but not if it means there are a billion people there. How much less crowded will it be the next Wednesday?
The hours on October 25th are from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM, which are moderately extended hours (typically during the “slower” season, SW is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM). That would mean SW might be preparing for larger crowds that day. Spooktacular is fun, cute, and worth checking out if you have children (but it’s fun for all ages, esp. if you like candy). That next Wednesday (29th) the park is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, so it will likely be less crowded then.
I have been to spooktacular. I think it is fun and worth the extra crowds my DD always enjoys it.
