SeaWorld San Diego Reveals New Howl-O-Scream Content For Friday The 13th

Looking forward to covering the final event as I loved the Press Conference we covered.

SeaWorld San Diego is sharing a Friday the 13th fright and flash with a reveal of the second haunted house that is part of the park’s upcoming and inaugural Howl-O-Scream nighttime event. The new evening event will have guests trembling with terror as they enter horrifying haunted houses, step upon seven themed scare zones, and escape large and small roaming hordes. Thrill-seekers can scream with delight on riding coasters in the dark, quench their thirst for fear at multiple interactive bars, and be entertained by live thrilling music and more!

Howl-O-Scream takes place select nights Friday, September 17 through Sunday, October 31. During the Howl-O-Scream 24-hour flash sale on Friday the 13th, guests can secure admission to this separate-ticketed event for up to 75% off savings for one day only.

Howl-O-Scream joins the park’s already impressive fall line-up of events including the return of family-friendly Halloween Spooktacular, included with park admission, 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 San Diego the place to be this Halloween season. The park’s daytime Halloween Spooktacular is included with park admission.

A Slice of Simon

Following SeaWorld’s reveal of the Nightmare Experiment haunted house, details on the second house were released by the park today leaving guests frightened for days to come! Guests that dare to enter Simon’s Slaughterhouse will be scared by the sights and sounds of knives, blades and more! The meat-packing plant has been taken over by the animals. Simon the Butcher will have guests in his view. Within the house, horrors are hiding throughout a grisly maze. With one wrong turn, attendees may navigate the wrong direction and end up the next specimen. Simon says the only way out is through the butcher’s blades!
