SeaWorld San Diego is preparing plenty of spine-chilling moments for its first-ever all-new Howl-O-Scream with new employment opportunities and a preview of the horrors to come!
As the event’s start date, Sept. 17, looms ever closer, SeaWorld San Diego is looking for hundreds of performers to add horror and thrills to the separately-ticketed nighttime event.
The park is hosting one-hour Scare Squad auditions every Thursday between 5-8 p.m., and every Saturday between 12-5 p.m. now through September. During the audition, applicants will be asked to participate in improvisational and physicality exercises to demonstrate various elements of scare tactics and showcase their best skills.
The chosen creepy characters must be passionate about Halloween and love to frighten in a fun way. The Scare Squad will spread fear and fun as they are transformed into new horrors by makeup artists and the park’s costume design team.
Applicants are asked to wear comfortable clothing and apply online for the position prior to attending an audition. Experience is not required, just a desire to have fun and give a good scare. As a new hire, members of the Scare Squad can enjoy free park admission and parking, discounts on park tickets for friends and family, food, merchandise, and in-park experiences.
Interested applicants can secure their audition spot by applying online at SeaWorldAuditions.com.
SeaWorld San Diego also shared a sneak peek at one of the haunted houses planned for this year’s Howl-O-Scream event, called Nightmare Experiment. You can check it out below:
