• SeaWorld launches 'Spooktacular' social mobile app game


    None - SeaWorld Orlando’s Halloween Spooktacular is about to become even more exciting!

    During the park’s amazing family-friendly Halloween event, guests can play SCVNGR, a free mobile app game all about going places, doing challenges and earning points. Instead of riddles to guide you to a place, SCVNGR concentrates on completing challenges at a particular location, like SeaWorld Orlando. SCVNGR is played from a custom app on iPhones or Android mobile devices.

    Those who complete three simple and fun challenges at SeaWorld Orlando during Halloween Spooktacular will win a free limited-edition Shamu lunch box. 

    Players can expect to have a blast and earn some sweet rewards when they play SCVNGR at SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular,” said Chris Mahl, SVP and chief brand alchemist at SCVNGR. “It’s the perfect way to bring a social element to the awesomely spooktacular activities and events SeaWorld Orlando has planned!”

    SeaWorld Orlando’s Halloween Spooktacular SCVNGR challenges are:

    • Apple Decorating Post: Head to the apple decorating station and create a delicious treat. Which of the scrumptious toppings did you use to make the perfect candied apple? Type in your favorite topping.
    • Welcome Creatures: Spooktacular’s hero is Otto the Octopus ... but did you know SeaWorld has a real octopus, too?  Snap a photo of the REAL sea creature! (Hint: Last seen inside one of Manta’s aquariums).
    • Otto Octopus: Shamu and friends are among many fanciful creatures welcoming trick-or-treaters! Snap a photo with any character at the PPZ (Penelope’s Party Zone)!

    To start playing, download the SCVNGR app at the Android Market or Apple’s iTunes Store. When guests arrive at SeaWorld Orlando for Halloween Spooktacular, they’ll simply need to check-in on SCVNGR, go to “places,” and then tap on “SeaWorld Spooktacular.” Follow the prompts and have fun!

    Halloween meets the sea during SeaWorld Orlando's Halloween Spooktacular, featuring an ocean of Halloween fun where children can trick-or-treat, dance with whimsical sea creatures, catch silly and spooky shows and create sea-themed arts and crafts.

    SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular takes place October: 15-16, 22-23, and 28-30. The daytime event runs from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., leaving the littlest of trick-or-treaters wide-eyed for even more fun-filled activities.  And now, kids are half-price with a full paid adult when bought online in advance.
