Howl-O-Scream All Set to Terrify Orlando This Fall!

A visit to SeaWorld Orlando just became a lot more frightful this fall, with the news that the park is preparing to unleash the ALL-NEW Howl-O-Scream Halloween event on select evenings from September to October.

Guests will be menaced by indoor Haunted Houses, outdoor Scare Zones, and assorted roaming frights in this special night-time event. Those of an adventurous nature will be able to deepen the thrills with terrifying coaster rides in the dark; quench their thirst for fear at a fiendishly interactive bar, and feel the monstrous electricity of a live show.

The separate-ticketed event went on sale last Friday (June 4), including exclusive discounts for Annual Pass Members, with the lowest prices of the year for what promises to be an immediate fan-favorite event over 27 fright-filled nights from Friday, September 10 to Sunday, October 31, from 7 p.m. to as late as 2 a.m.

Howl-O-Scream joins the park’s already impressive fall line-up of events, including the return of the family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular, which boasts daytime trick-or-treating for kids of all ages. Spooky fun for the entire family with Spooktacular during the day, and then terrifying thrills by night with the launch of Howl-O-Scream to make SeaWorld the place to be this spooky season!



Park President Kyle Miller insisted: “SeaWorld Orlando fans love our extensive event line-up, which includes a special event taking place every weekend of the year. Adding Howl-O-Scream to the calendar provides the missing element of a fright-filled Halloween event that we know our guests will welcome.

“With this addition, we become the only theme park in Orlando to offer both a daytime family-friendly Halloween and nighttime horror for thrill-seekers. We are very excited to announce Howl-O-Scream today, and look forward to sharing all of the amazing details of the event over the next few months.”

Howl-O-Scream Elements

Haunted Houses

Hear every bloodcurdling shriek. Feel every spine-tingling terror. Get ready for the haunted houses of SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream. There’s no turning back as guests brave dark passageways and dimly lit corners, hoping they can avoid what’s lurking in the depths. The legends are true, the fear is real, and the only way out is through the fear.

Scare Zones and Roaming Haunts

There are no safe zones. There are no places to hide. The scares are everywhere, and the roaming haunts never weaken. Get ready for immersive terror at every turn during SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream. Guests should stay alert and be prepared for anything because you never know what’s waiting up ahead (or creeping up behind you).

Frightful Shows

Even amid so much mayhem, the show must go on. Duck inside and be mesmerized by a raucous, high-energy musical dance show. Or discover who’s behind all the terror washing over the park at an outdoor show complete with special effects. Guests will also find DJs and party zones that are perfect for a dance break between frights.

Monster Coasters in the Dark and Haunting Experiences



It wouldn’t be a SeaWorld visit without a ride or two, but it wouldn’t be Howl-O-Scream without a dose of nighttime terror. Guests up to the challenge are invited to ride their favorite attractions in the dark. Meanwhile, sinister interactive surprises await at their favorite bar haunts. Keep watching to see how this once-peaceful park transforms with fear after nightfall.
