Halloween themed destinations often fall into two categories- scary/non-kid friendly, or family friendly to the point of boredom for adults. As always, Sesame Place has made a wonderful middle ground with “The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular”. The Spooktacular event transforms Sesame Place from the summer amusement park destination for kids of all ages to a Halloween themed wonderland of Sesame Street proportions.

The Spooktacular starts with an already cool park (but now without water rides), then adds Trick or Treating and special Spooktacular rides, decorations, and attractions. These include an Un-Haunted Castle maze, which is adorable to roam through, and without a single scare is great for kids of all ages with tons of interactive discoveries (and buttons to push) and fun learning experiences.

There is also Abby Cadabby’s Magical Halloween Maze, which is a fun hay-bale maze full of sparkle-riffic fun for kids. The story behind the attraction is that you and your kids must help find Abby’s missing wand and of course, experience the hijinks that occur in the process.

There is also a wonderful family themed hay ride with a Sesame Street character in their own costume as well. When we went we had Bert dressed as a farmer. During the ride there was singing and stories and laughing plenty of fun for the whole family. The hay ride picks up from outside the park so grab your ticket and get your hand stamped before going on the ride. Also try to do this earlier in the day, the line gets a bit long as the day progresses

The real gems of the Spooktacular are the shows. Each is now Halloween themed and the kids will love it. The shows run throughout the day and aren’t to be missed. We were able to catch the Howl-o-ween Radio Show which is a live action olde-time radio show hosted by The Count and has a bunch of his friends including Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Grover, Oscar and Elmo. The song and dance numbers are great and the finale had the whole crowd on their feet. I won’t ruin if for you, but Elmo is absolutely thrilling in it. (LOL)

The daily parade is even Halloween-ed, with special floats and music, costumed characters, and more Un-Spooky surprises. In addition to the Halloween themed attractions and rides, all the dry rides are open and running including Elmo’s Cloud Chaser, Blast Off, Flyin’ Fish, Peek a Bug, Grover’s World Twirl, Sunny Day Carousel, Big Bird’s Balloon Race and Vapor Trail.
The Spooktacular runs from September 1st through October 28th, weekends only, so check it out now before the Count runs out of bats to count.
