WHAT: After a successful “inaugural fear,” Howl-O-Scream is coming back to SeaWorld San Diego, and this year promises to be bigger than ever before with more pulse-pounding haunts, thrills, and chills. Now entering its second year, Howl-O-Scream 2022 will feature more coasters, new haunted houses, more scare zones, and more unexpected frights. Those planning to face their fears can take advantage of the scariest sale of the season with limited-time savings of up to 60 percent, with Howl-O-Scream tickets as low as $31.99.


Howl-O-Scream takes place from September 16 through October 31 and the separately ticketed event is intended for a mature audience. The second year has three returning and reimagined haunted houses, four returning scare zones plus two additional haunted houses, two new scare zones, all-new ScAREAs, all-new live-show, new themed bars and more. Guests can also take their night of frights to another level by braving SeaWorld San Diego’s roller coasters at night. They can take a chilling ride on the park’s newest thrill ride “Emperor,” rated one of the top Best New Theme Park Attraction by USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards and is the tallest, fastest, and longest floorless dive coast in California.


To prepare for evenings of howls and screams, SeaWorld San Diego is seeking enthusiastic performers who can give attendees the scariest of scares to join the Howl-O-Scream team as scare actors. Anyone over the age of 18 who is passionate about Halloween and loves to frighten and startle is encouraged to apply, regardless of performance experience. The selected scare actors will play a pivotal role in bringing this exciting and ever-growing annual event to life for SeaWorld San Diego guests.
