Sesame Place Halloween #Spooktacular {Review}

My family LOVES Halloween – especially my son, as Halloween is his birthday.  Every year we try to plan fun activities as a family throughout the month of October.  We visit local pumpkin patches and fall festivals and enjoy taking in the crisp air and festive decor.  My challenge?  My 5-year-old is still somewhat afraid of the “scary” aspects of Halloween.  When it comes to enjoying actual “Halloween” festivities, we are always hesitant as we are not sure what to expect and what may or may not be appropriate for younger children.

Last weekend, my family and I were invited to Sesame Place’s Media Day to check out the Count’s Spooktacular for ourselves.  As a lifelong fan of Sesame Street and an avid fan of Sesame Place, we were thrilled to experience Halloween Sesame-style.

Our families were treated to a fun cupcake social complete with Elmo and Cookie Monster cupcakes and sugar cookies, Elmo soft pretzels and refreshments.  Characters were on hand to socialize with the kids, dance, and stop for fun photo ops.  We even had the rare opportunity to grab a family pic!  After jamming and noshing and having a grand old time, our family could not wait to head into the park to experience all of the fun attractions.

For starters, I will assure you that everything in the park is super kid friendly.  From the decor to the Halloween-inspired parade, two kid mazes and the adorably dressed characters (in their sweet Halloween costumes), there is nothing scary to be found at this festive Halloween celebration.  Costumes are optional (and of course, my kiddos couldn’t wait to wear theirs), but I would suggest bringing a change of clothes along in case they would like to try some of the hands on, physical activities like Nets ‘n Climbs (I actually had to bribe my kids out of these) or Ernie’s Bed Bounce.  Kids can trick or treat at stations located throughout the park, where they will also be given bags to carry their goodies.  Be sure to stop over at Ernie’s Rubber Ducky Costume Party, where kids can dance with Sesame favorite characters to upbeat music, lights and good old fashioned toe tapping fun.  Rides are open for enjoyment as are lively, kid-friendly shows.  At the front of the park, you will find fun character hayrides (which I will caution are a huge draw and can draw long lines).  By arriving early at the park and planning your day accordingly, you can assure that you get to enjoy all of the fun without running out of time.

The Count’s Spooktacular is open weekends from 10 AM to 6:00 PM through October 28th. Each week has special events planned which you can read more about HERE.  Tickets are $59.99 each (which get you in for two days).  If you only plan to attend for one day and purchase your tickets online HERE prior to going to the park, you will save $20 per ticket (up to 6 tickets). If you plan to pay at the park, be sure to grab discount coupons at one of the following locations HERE before you go.

 Many thanks to Sesame Place for inviting our family for a day of fun!  We had a “Spooktacular” time! 

I can’t think of a better way to count down the days til Halloween than with the Count…

Disclosure: My family and I received complimentary admission to the park and a cupcake social in conjunction with Sesame Place Media Day 2012.  I received no further compensation for this post.  All opinions, as always are my own.
