I am a little late with this post. We actually went to Sea World a couple of weeks ago. They do a Halloween thing all month where the kids dress-up and trick-or-treat and there are bands. We went to see these guys http://www.dirtysockfuntimeband.com/main.php but it was too loud for Jett. We still had a great time and always enjoy the animals. My husband also enjoys the Mermaids:) You could wait to get your picture taken with the mermaid and my girls wanted nothing to do with her but as you can tell from the photo, Doug was happy to get his photo taken.
