Santa Clara, CA -- Paramount's Great America invites kids ages 12 and younger to put on their Halloween costumes, search for treats in treasure-hunting style and celebrate the holiday during Nick-or-Treat running Oct. 16-17, 23-24 and 30 from noon to 4 p.m.
Paramount's Great America offers the only event on the West Coast where kids can wear costumes and trick-or-treat alongside their friends from Nickelodeon. Each trick-or-treater can pick up a Halloween treat bag and map that will lead them on a fun-filled search for candy through Nickelodeon Central. Each stop will be brightly decorated with hay bales and pumpkins where Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer will be waiting to greet their fans with sweet treats.
Nick-or-Treat culminates in Hollywood Plaza at 5 p.m. with a special "Meet the Nicktoons LIVE" Halloween show. Guests of all ages will be "treated" to a half-hour meet-and-greet with all their Nickelodeon friends.
"Nick-or-Treat is a safe, one-of-a-kind Halloween experience designed specifically for our younger guests and their families, and it is free with park admission," said Rod Rankin, senior vice president and general manager of Paramount's Great America.
The park will be open from 10 am - 6 pm. For the safety of all guests, no costumes with loose articles such as capes or accessories that could interfere with rides or attractions will be allowed. Paramount's Great America requests no costumes on guests over 12 years of age.
