halloween spooktacular at sesame place

Last weekend I was given the opportunity to join a group of bloggers at Sesame Place for the Count’s Halloween Spooktacular. What an amazing time we had!

From now until October 28th, Sesame Place has been transformed into a not-so-spooky Halloween attraction featuring 2 mazes, character hayrides, three Halloween shows and your favorite Sesame Street charactors dressed to impress in their Halloween costumes. It’s good old family fun for kids of all ages.

New this year is Ernie’s Rubber Duckie Costume Party – a non-stop dance party with disco lights and upbeat music.

Families are encouraged to come dressed in costume. It’s too chilly for their water rides, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the dozen dry rides throughout the park! For those families looking for some Halloween fun, trick or treating stations are set up in various locations as well as special events such as the Count’s Halloween Party, Abby Cadabby’s Fairy Pumpkin Party and their annual Halloween Costume Party.
