(KGTV) — This Halloween, if trick-or-treating isn't quite enough why not venture out to a Southern California theme park for some thrills.

Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, and more are celebrating the spookiest time of year with several themed rides, shows, and events sure to deliver frightful fun.

Head over to one of these parks for a day filled with Halloween scares and delights:

Disneyland: Celebrate Halloween time at Disneyland with the Haunted Mansion, which is decked out with spooky holiday fun with Jack Skellington and friends. The park is also packing seasonal fun into Main Street with the Main Street Pumpkin Festival and Halloween Screams fireworks show. Be sure to check out our interactive map to see where to find those pumpkin spice beignets and holiday-theme cake pops.

Disneyland California Adventure: Visit the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction for "Monsters After Dark" fun or check out the Halloween fun left by Oogie Boogie "A Nightmare before Christmas." Cars Land will also be transformed with costumed characters, and Halloween-themed rides.

SeaWorld San Diego: Get ready to trick-or-treat at SeaWorld this Halloween. Meet some fun friends at Clyde and Seamore's Halloween Bash, jump onto an interactive dance floor, or catch the Sesame Street Halloween Parade. The park's Manta ride also gets a seasonal update with spooky effects.

Legoland California: Legoland's Brick-or-Treat Party Nights bring live entertainment and shows, costume contests, treat stations, character meet-and-greets, and more to the park. Remember to stop by the park's Sea Life Aquarium to visit some fishy friends and catch the decorations.

Universal Studios: Universal Studios is bringing some spine-tingling fun to the park with several themed mazes like "Stranger Things," Jordan Peele's "Us," Ghostbusters, Killer Clowns from Outer Space, and more. And the park's five scare zones are packed with thrills and chills.

Knott's Berry Farm: Once again, Knott's Berry Farm turns into Knott's Scary Farm, bringing tons of haunting mazes, haunted houses, shows, and thrill rides to the park. Park midways will also be transformed into scare zones for guests to walkthrough if they dare.
