Gatorland has announced the return of its all-ages Halloween event ‘Gators, Ghosts and Goblins’ in October.

The (kinda) scary daytime shindig – included with regular park admission – encourages park visitors to come in costume (“nothing scary or gory, please”) and promises costumed character meet and greets, a trick or treat trail, a spooky train ride, and Frank and Stein’s Octoberfest, complete an “undead” polka band. (We predict a polka-fied “Monster Mash” on the hour.)

And of course here will also appearances from cryptozoological legend and park health ambassador the Social Distancing Skunk Ape.

Face masks are required and updated park safety procedures are in effect.

“We are beyond excited to give our guests a way to celebrate Halloween safely,” said Gatorland CEO Mark McHugh in a press statement.

Gators, Ghosts and Goblins goes down on weekends from Oct. 10-Nov. 1. More information on park hours and ticketing can be found here.
