Thrill-seekers immersed themselves in a sea of spine-tingling escapades at the New York Aquarium, which morphed into the phant-tastic “A-scarium” over the weekend in anticipation of the year’s most spooktacular day.

Halloween was the magic password for tremulous trick-o-treaters who made a beeline for the Wildlife Conservation Society’s annual haunted habitat — demonically plopped against Coney Island’s Boardwalk and hauntingly landscaped by the ocean — where ghosts, goblins and other ghoulish folk made sure to float the boo-tastic boats of one and all.

The young and the young-at-heart took in such awesome attractions and activities as the Haunted Sea-fari, where they boarded a sunken ship and hobnobbed with the surly “Captain Looter” and his devilish crew — part of the Explore the Shore exhibit, complete with an invitation to walk the plank, face sharks, and “enter” the belly of an octopus.

“Everyone will leave with a better understanding of how to protect marine life, habitats, and our fragile seashore,” promised spokesperson Barbara Russo.

The fearsome frolics continue for the next two weekends, so head on over — if you dare to brrr-ave — and don’t forget to come dressed to thrill.

Be prepared for gourds of fun — from pumpkin-carving and other creepy crafts to spooky storytelling, mesmerizing magic shows, and kooky music supplied by Alastair Moock, and SweetBeatz.

A-scarium at New York Aquarium [Surf Avenue at W. Eighth Street in Coney Island, (718) 265-FISH], Oct. 22-23, and 29-30, 11 am to 5 pm,
