Howl-O-Scream events begin this September at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens

13 Sep 2023

Howl-O-Scream is the screamiest event for scare seekers this Halloween season… and it may be just what Americans needs now. A new survey confirms what experts already know: screaming is actually good for you. Howl-O-Scream events beginning this September at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens can be the remedy with terror-inducing haunts designed to provoke more screams than ever before.

A new survey of 1,000 Americans found more than half believe screaming positively affects their health, yet only 10% strongly agree they scream at least once a week. And when they do, most respondents said they experience relief after screaming and an overwhelming 76% view screaming as a release for pent up feelings.

SeaWorld and Busch Gardens’ Howl-O-Scream will deliver that much needed, blood-pumping scream experience Americans crave. The lineup at each park offers a unique array of new thrills, experiences and shows including:

 SeaWorld Orlando

  • Terrifying haunted houses: walk inside and meet your match. Each dark corner brings guests more screams, shrieks, and terrors. Don’t believe everything you see (or don’t see), the haunted houses at SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream are sure to leave guests a bone chilling fear with each step. Once you walk through the door, there’s no turning back.
  • Scare zones and roaming haunts: visitors be warned, there are shrieks around every corner and SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream is not holding back.
