The Ultimate Spooky Season Guide
on 21 September 2021 in General News

If you’re lucky enough to be on the Gold Coast this Halloween season, you’re certainly in for a treat (or trick).

Dive into this amazing list of things that will fascinate, intrigue, and spark some scare and curiosity in your blood. From family-friendly events to some that require a bit more courage and bravery, hold your breath as you enter a whole new world of Spooky.

1. Sea World Spooky Nights

Argh you ready for nights filled with spooktacular family fun? Well, it’s time you discover what’s creeping and crawling around Sea World as night falls this Halloween season.

Featuring Captain Blue Beard and his crew of monsters as he embarks upon a thrilling quest of discovery and adventure, little ones will have their little hearts racing in excitement. 

From Monster Mayhem Laser Light Shows guaranteed to give you a light show you won’t forget exploring a range of exhibits and rides including the mind-bending Vortex, the park is certainly scarier at night. 

There are six different precincts to wander amongst, and with a stellar entertainment line-up that will keep you entertained throughout the night. 

Oh, and there’s also a trail of candy for the kids to play trick and treat too.

2. Happy Halloween at Dreamworld

Why not mix some scare fun and your love of animals together at Dreamworld instead? Frightfully fun food await you alongside a string of rides at night. There’s trick and treating for the kids, a ton of entertainment, costume competitions with prizes, hay mazes, and so much more.

Dreamworld’s Happy Halloween event is perfect for families who want some parental approved Halloween fun without too much scare. Nothing scary, all the fun. 

Don’t miss out and get your tickets at $39 per person or free for annual passholders.

3. Fearaphobia Scream Park at Helensvale Westfield

Australia’s very first dedicated Scream Park, the Fearaphobia at Westfield Helensvale promises a night you won’t forget. With over 100 dressed up actors on the roam, you’ll be sure they’ll try to give you a fright. From ghosts and ghouls to hair raising attractions, the atmosphere of Fearaphobia is phenomenally in tune with all things Halloween.

This isn’t a scream park appropriate for the little ones, with models, attractions and graphic material a tad too scary or bloody for their liking. Six haunted attractions await your exploration and the finger licking food will tantalise your appetite.

Happening from 21 October to 31 October at 6pm onward, head to the vacant lot outside Westfield Helensvale for this unique Halloween scare experience.

4. FestEvil at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Explore the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary after dark and enjoy a FestEvil night.

Happening over three nights on 29 October to 31 October, the event is appropriate for all ages with the invitation of dressing up in your frightful Halloween outfits.

Jump aboard the Ghost Train, say hello to wandering wildlife, and sink your teeth into some yummy treats. There’s also a haunted house to get the kids racing with excitement, a trick and treat trail that will keep them adventuring, and inflatable fun to help burn some energy.

A Monster Mash will be held by zombies, followed by a classic disco set and street performers to kickstart the party. Face painting, showbags, delicious hampers, festive favourites, there’s simply so much to do for everyone at the FestEvil Fangtuary.

5. Halloween Party at the Cooly Hotel

Take things a little easy this Halloween and avoid running around like a headless chicken by checking into the Cooly Hotel’s Halloween Party this Saturday 27 October.
