Howl-O-Scream, the park’s annual Halloween fear-fest, has expanded for 2022 with six haunted houses, eight terror-tories, a themed bar, and party zones, on select nights from September 16-October 31.
Over the course of 22 nights – on Fridays-Sundays – the marine wildlife park becomes a den of dire doings from 7 p.m.-10 p.m., as creepy creatures and houses of horror fill the night.
Howl-O-Scream new haunted houses
The event includes six haunted houses, two of which are new for 2022.
Atlantis – The Cursed Chasm dares visitors to enter a ravine where a timeless evil lurks in the deepest abyss.
DIS-Assembly Line is the realm of a mad scientist whose agonizing assembly line may be the last thing unsuspecting intruders ever see.
Returning houses include Zombie Horde, Karver’s Kradle, Milton Creek Manor, and The Swamp at Blackwater Bayou.
Predators prowl the pathways
Think you can just walk around the park and avoid the scares? Think again!
The Water’s Edge doesn’t involve gentle waves lapping at your bare feet. Instead, it’s the place where Sirens have awakened, and the screams of passersby are just the temptation they need to find and devour their human prey.
Along with the new The Water’s Edge are returning scare zones filled with zombies, vampires, bayou mutants, living shadows, and a host of horrifying freaks.
Need a break from the mayhem? GlaciAlly turns Penguin Plaza into an icy domain where the unwary will find acrobats, a DJ, and a glacial-inspired new bar, Frost Bite.
Guests can also dance away the panic at the Monster Stomp, where a live band, singers, and dancers put on a sinister show showered in murderous mischief.
Wrapped tightly in the dark of night, guests can take part in Coaster Creep during a thrilling ride alongside gruesome ghouls on one of SeaWorld San Antonio’s mega-coasters.
Visiting Howl-O-Scream with a friend or family member who is less eager for the full-on frights? Purchase a light-up No Boo Necklace that lets scare performers know they should avoid the guests as they walk along pathways and through terror-tories.
Have little ones in tow? Sign them up for Spook Camp-ular!, where grownups can drop off the kiddies while they head into the park for Howl-O-Scream, knowing their youngsters will be entertained by supervised games, crafts, and kid-friendly private tour that visits sharks, stingrays, fish, and dolphins. Dinner and a snack are included, and the experience is open to ages six-12. Camp hours are from 7 p.m. until park closing.
Family-friendly Halloween fun fills the park’s daytime hours
If Howl-O-Scream is all too much, visit the park during the day and enjoy Spooktacular, the kid-friendly event that includes a corn maze, photos with Spookley the Square Pumpkin, in-park trick-or-treating, and the fun of the Sesame Street Halloween Parade.
