SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular, San Diego’s premier family-fun, not-too-spooky, ocean-inspired Halloween festival, surfaces every Saturday and Sunday through Oct. 29. The fun-fishy Halloween activities include free candy at 12 ocean-themed trick-or-treat stations, along with an undersea pumpkin patch with wacky, roaming costume characters that pose for photos with guests. New this year is the bubble gum-themed walk-around personality, Bubble Poparazzi, who helps guests “pop” with his superb selfie skills. Plus, the popular Halloween-themed silly spooky shows Clyde & Seamore’s Big Halloween Bash and Sesame Street’s Who Said Boo?! have returned to enchant guests. SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular is included with park admission. For more information visit: www.SeaWorldSanDiego.com.

SAVE BIG TIME WITH SEAWORLD’S SOCAL ANNUAL PASS: SeaWorld San Diego has thrown its old admission ticket price paradigm out the window. The marine park has removed one of the number one barriers to visiting theme parks for Southern California residents and tourists with an all-new SOCAL Annual Pass. For just $99.99, this pass is only $10 more than the cost of a single-day admission. The pass’ value extends beyond its price, with 12 months of unlimited admission, free parking, two free guest tickets valid for select dates and discounts on in-park purchases. That is more than $400 in annual value. The annual pass can now be purchased for less than $100 and there are no blackout dates. SeaWorld is also offering the annual pass on easy payments of less than $9 a month through the park’s EZPay program with no down payment. For more information visit: www.SeaWorldSanDiego.com
