The SeaWorld Podcast is back to recap the Halloween events at all 3 SeaWorld Parks. In October Seaworld held a family friendly Halloween Spooktacular event where families were able to trick-or-treat in the park, enjoy special live shows, and meet their favorite SeaWorld characters dressed up.
At SeaWorld Texas they hold a scary Howl-O-Scream event once the sun goes down. Erin talks to SeaWorld Texas Director of Entertainment Brian Knowlton about the Howl-O-Scream event.
Erin then talks to Sr. SeaWorld Trainer Joe Miller about the ending of Clyde and Seamore Cannery Caper, and what guests can expect when the hilarious Sea Lions return next year with their friend O.P. Otter and Sir Winston Walrus.
We wrap up the show with a new Marine Mammal Trainer Minute with Kyle Kittleson and some general SeaWorld news.
