Meet & Greet at the Guy Harvey Store (located in the Waterfront)
A visit to SeaWorld Orlando will turn frightful on select evenings this fall when the park unleashes the ALL-NEW Howl-O-Scream. Guests will evade roaming haunts rampaging through scare zones and seek shelter indoors, only to find they have entered a house of horrors. Adventuresome guests can deepen the thrills with terrifying coaster rides in the dark, quench their thirst for fear at a fiendishly interactive bar and feel the monstrous electricity of a live show.
The separate-ticketed event goes on sale today including exclusive discounts for Annual Pass Members, with the lowest prices of the year for what promises to be an immediate fan-favorite terrifying Halloween event taking place with 27 fright-filled nights of haunted houses, scare zones, and terrifying shows on select nights Friday, September 10 through Sunday, October 31 from 7 p.m. to as late as 2 a.m.
Howl-O-Scream joins the park’s already impressive fall line-up of events including the return of family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular which boasts daytime trick or treating for kids of all ages. Spooky fun for the entire family with Spooktacular during the day and terrifying thrills by night with the launch of Howl-O-Scream make SeaWorld Orlando the place to be this Halloween season.
“SeaWorld Orlando fans love our extensive event line-up which includes a special event taking place every weekend of the year. Adding Howl-O-Scream to the calendar provides the missing element of a fright-filled Halloween event that we know our guests will welcome. 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,” says SeaWorld Orlando Park President Kyle Miller. “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 SeaWorld Orlando Elements:
Haunted Houses: Hear every bloodcurdling shriek. Feel every spine-tingling terror. Get ready for the haunted houses of SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream. 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 through the fear.
Scare Zones and Roaming Haunts: There are no safe zones. There are no places to hide. The scares are everywhere, and the roaming haunts never weaken. 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:Even amid so much mayhem, the show must go on. Duck inside and be mesmerized by a raucous, high-energy musical dance show. Or discover who’s behind all the terror washing over 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: It wouldn’t be a SeaWorld visit without a ride or two, but it wouldn’t be Howl-O-Scream without a dose of nighttime terror. Guests up to the challenge are invited to ride their favorite attractions in the dark. Meanwhile, sinister interactive surprises await at their favorite bar haunts. Keep watching to see how this once-peaceful park transforms with fear after nightfall.
Fans of fear can sign-up at www.HowlOScream.com/Orlando to be the first to receive more dark details on new houses, experiences and more coming to Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld Orlando as additional gruesome details are announced.

Spring Break is almost here, and it is going to be an incredibly busy season for the theme parks of Central Florida.
To help you navigate the parks, here are a few Spring Break tips by park!
Spring Break 2021 Tips
Walt Disney World
The Walt Disney World theme parks are all sold out for Resort and ticket holders, but some Annual Passholder availability has flickered in and out so be sure to check the Park Pass Reservation page often.
If you do have a ticket and are looking to park hop after 2pm, keep this number handy (407) 560-5000! This number will inform you if a park is at capacity and not accepting park hoppers.
Please do yourself a favor and don’t show up to ‘talk your way in’. The capacity is what it is, and if you do not have a reservation you will be turned away.
Disney Springs will also be EXTREMELY busy!!!! Also be aware that if you have a dining reservation, you are not guaranteed entry into Disney Springs.
Universal Orlando Resort
The Universal Orlando Resort does not take reservations for Universal Studios Florida or Universal Islands of Adventure, so these parks will absolutely cap out with capacity early in the day due to the amazing ticket and hotel deals they have right now.
The Universal Social Media Team is GREAT at posting about park hours, tips, and when the parks reach capacity & are letting guests in again. So make sure you follow @universalorl on Twitter
If you do get into the parks, bring a lot of patience!!! The lines will be long, so make sure to be kind & social distance.
All guests with existing tickets, Fun Cards, or Annual Passes must make a reservation using this system in advance in order to manage park capacity and maintain physical distancing
Again, these parks will be SUPER busy so bring your patience and be prepared for those long lines.
Don’t forget you can keep up with our adventures On the Go in MCO and find even more events by following @onthegoinmco on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube!
