If you are familiar with the Howl-O-Scream name, it is the same as that of the company’s horror events at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, SeaWorld San Antonio, and now SeaWorld Orlando. At the San Diego park, guests will get a chance to roam the park and experience three haunted houses, seven scare zones, four roaming haunts, live shows, themed bars, and ride roller coasters in the dark. The separately-ticketed event will run on select nights from Sept. 17 through Oct. 31.

Tickets start at $39.99 per person. Pass Members can save $5 on general admission prices. For more fun, the park will offer an unlimited admission ticket, which grants access to all 24 event nights for $99.99; reservations are required for each visit.

For those who may not be brave enough to experience the event, or have little ones, SeaWorld will continue with its popular, family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular event, running every Saturday and Sunday from Sept. 18 through Oct. 31. This daytime event features trick-or-treating throughout the park, a costume party, and meet-and-greets with Sesame Street characters dressed in their Halloween costumes. Halloween Spooktacular is included with regular park admission.
