Busch Gardens Williamsburg has decided to add (or re-add as they used to do it) a new kid friendly section to Howl O’ Scream this year- The Count’s Spooktacular Kids’ Halloween.
Every weekend in October, children 9 and younger are encouraged to come dressed in their best Halloween costume (minus the mask) to dance and play with their favorite Sesame Street ® friends Elmo, Cookie Monster and more at The Count’s Spooktacular at Busch Gardens ® Williamsburg. Kid-friendly rides, family activities and trick-or-treating will be offered around the park for kids to celebrate the fall season.
Whether a superhero, princess or something created from their own imagination, children 9 years old and younger are encouraged to dress up for this Halloween event. Parents, if your child’s costume has a mask or prop, we ask for you to kindly leave those at home. Smiling faces always look better in family photos. We offer plenty of options to jazz up your child’s costume with face painting, glow items, and more at the park.
Stop by select kid-friendly shops throughout the park to grab a special treat for your little one.

THINGS TO DO FOR KIDS
With more than 40 kid-friendly attractions throughout the park, there’s plenty for your family to enjoy together. Explore two play areas (Land of the Dragons ® & Sesame Street ® Forest of Fun ™), a variety of rides and more. Kids can meet their favorite furry friends and get a picture taken with them at 1-2-3 Smile with Me! in Sesame Street Forest of Fun.
You won’t want to miss a special show, The Count’s Countdown to Halloween, dance parties for the kids and a parade to end the day for families before the haunts and scares of Howl-O-Scream ® start in the evening. The parade starts at 4:45 p.m. at Elmo’s Castle in Sesame Street Forest of Fun and will make its way to the Globe Theatre in England. Whether your child wishes to participate or watch from the sidelines, it’s sure to be a Spooktacular time.
