Fall is the beginning of a very exciting time at Busch Gardens. The gateway to the holidays has officially opened with the return of Howl-O-Scream, the perfect way to celebrate Halloween with some of the most creative and intense scares you’ve ever experienced… But! If you’re looking for Halloween-themed fun for the younger members of your family, Busch Gardens has you covered with Halloween Fun for Young Children.
At Busch Gardens, it’s fun by day and fright by night, remaining perfectly family-friendly with no scares until 6 p.m. Not only that, but beginning on Saturday, September 25 and every weekend through October 31, the park will host a Sesame Street-themed event for kids called The Count’s Spooktacular!
Come to the Sesame Street Forest of Fun during the day for not-too-spooky Halloween merriment! Kids under the age of nine are invited to dress up for a costume parade, enjoy dance parties with their favorite Sesame Street friends, explore a festive hay maze, do a pumpkin scavenger hunt and trick-or-treat throughout the park!
Each weekend, guests will discover unique activities, themes, and photo opportunities. Which themed weekend would your kids love most?
