SeaWorld Orlando has announced its first Howl-O-Scream nighttime event for Halloween 2021, with attractions including haunted houses, scare zones and hair-raising shows.

SeaWorld Orlando’s ticketed Halloween event is running for 27 fright-filled nights from September 10 through October 31.

Howl-O-Scream joins SeaWorld Orlando’s other fall offerings, including the return of the family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular, which features daytime trick-or-treating.

“SeaWorld Orlando fans love our extensive event line-up which includes a special event taking place every weekend of the year,” said SeaWorld Orlando park president Kyle Miller.

“Adding Howl-O-Scream to the calendar provides the missing element of a fright-filled Halloween event that we know our guests will welcome,” Miller added.

“With this addition, we become the only theme park in Orlando to offer both a daytime family-friendly Halloween and a nighttime horror Halloween 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’s haunted houses feature dark passageways and shadowy corners, while scare zones and roaming haunts offer an immersive scare experience.

Shows include musical dance performances and outdoor shows with special effects, and Howl-O-Scream visitors will find DJs and party zones throughout the theme park.

In addition, guests can enjoy SeaWorld Orlando’s horrifying coasters and rides in the dark, and will find sinister interactive surprises at their favourite F&B haunts.

Last year, SeaWorld Orlando’s annual Halloween Spooktacular¬†event was modified¬†due to COVID-19, with guests safely exploring the park‚Äôs ‘slightly spooky’ Halloween offerings.

SeaWorld¬†CEO Marc Swanson recently revealed the company is looking to expand by building hotels and adding new rides¬†in Orlando and ‚Äúother locations‚ÄĚ in an interview with the¬†Orlando Sentinel.

‚ÄúWe have some land parcels and some other things that could make for some exciting hotel locations either on our park property or adjacent to our parks,‚ÄĚ said Swanson.
