A visit to SeaWorld San Diego will turn frightful on select evenings this fall when the park unleashes Howl-O-Scream, all new to SeaWorld’s San Diego destination. This year, SeaWorld San Diego will offer two Halloween events — the family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular during the day with trick-or-treating, then as the sun goes down, thrill seekers will witness the transformation of the park into an intense horror-filled haunt during Howl-O-Scream.
Howl-O-Scream is a separately ticketed event intended for mature audiences. The event is anticipated to be an immediate fan-favorite and terrifying Halloween event with multiple nights of haunted houses, scare zones, roaming zombies and terrifying shows on select nights.
SeaWorld’s Spooktacular is included with regular park admission and offers fun for all this fall season. Boasting daylight trick-or-treating for kids of all ages with multiple ocean-themed trick-or-treat stations around the park, kids of all ages can dress up in their Halloween best and join in the fun at Spooktacular Costume Party. The park is also bringing back its Spooktacular Pumpkin Hunt. Children can use their special purchased map to find hidden SeaWorld animal-themed pumpkins throughout the park, then collect an exclusive Halloween prize.
“We are expanding on SeaWorld’s popular Halloween offerings that our guests look forward to like Spooktacular during the day and are thrilled to be introducing an all-new Halloween scare event and unique, must-do experience in San Diego,” said SeaWorld San Diego Park President John Dunlap.
Haunted Houses: There’s no turning back as guests brave dark passageways and round 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 to embrace your fear.
Scare Zones and Roaming Haunts: 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: Duck inside to watch a raucous, high-energy musical dance show. Or discover who’s behind all the terror lurking throughout 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: Guests up to the challenge are invited to ride their favorite attractions in the dark. Toast the terror with creepy cocktails, restless spirits and more at several uniquely themed haunted bars throughout the park.
