While Howl-O-Scream is haunting the park in the evenings, a much more family-friendly Halloween celebration is taking over the weekends at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay starting October 6. From 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM on Saturdays and Sundays, kids can celebrate in the Safari of Fun with Elmo, Abby, Grover, and many more Sesame Street friends.
With different themes each weekend, guests are encouraged to come in their best costumes for a day full of fall festivities in the park’s all-new expanded festival area! Kids of all ages can join in the fun with trick or treating, a hay bale maze, exclusive arts & craft, and more fall-inspired activities.
The whole Sesame Street crew will also take to the streets for a character parade and dance party several times throughout the day, at 11 AM, 2 PM and 3 PM on event days.
For even more encounters with your favorite Sesame Street characters, you can make reservations for Lunch with Elmo & Friends on select dates. The lunch buffet, which is $19.99 for adults and $14.99 for kids, features special appearances throughout the meal by Elmo, Cookie Monster, and more! Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. Don’t forget your camera!
Safari of Fun Kids’ Weekends run all month long, from October 6 to October 28 and the special Halloween festivities are included with regular park admission! Get ready to celebrate by heading to tickets2you.com for great prices on Busch Gardens Tampa tickets!
