10 Cool Things About Howl-O-Scream At Sea World San Antonio

On September 28th, Sea World starts Howl-O-Scream, an event packed full of spooky goodies. There are haunted houses, scare zones, various attractions, and Halloween themed shows.






My daughter loves scary things like this, so we've been going for two years now. Here's what you'll see if you attend!




1. Some of the food is Halloween themed. We found these cookies, plus this dirt pudding. The cup even lights up and yes, you can keep it!





2. The spooky stuff starts at 7. This is when all the scareactors come out. A good place to watch them stream past is near the ducks, across from the new Monster Stomp show.





3. Spooky stuff not your thing? During the day you can attend Spooktacular! Your child can arrive in their costume and go trick-or-treating at select places, check out the hay maze, see FantaSea characters, plus much more! It ends at 7 and starts when the park opens.





4. You CAN wear costumes at Howl-O-Scream! Natalie was Jigsaw, and we also saw someone walking around as Jason.





5. There's a new house/maze called Zombie Horde. It was pretty cool. There were zombies. And people warning to stay away so we didn't also turn into a zombie.





6. Don't want to wait as long in line? There are Fear Pass options available to purchase around the park. Fear Passes don't get you to the very front, but you'll have a shorter line. We've gotten Fear Passes in the past and never waited more than 20 minutes.





7. If you're there at 7 and don't want to see the scary stuff, Howl-O-Scream doesn't take over the whole park. You'll see this if you're heading into a Howl-O-Scream area. Check your map and you'll see which areas are scare-free.




8. Yes, the scareactors will sometimes talk with you. But they can't always stop for pictures. They are working. And scaring. Most of them will pose if you ask for a quick one though. But don't try to set up an entire family photo for an odd Christmas card.




9. Need a shot? You'll see those for sale too.





10. Everything looks cooler when the sun goes down. Scarier too because you won't realize a scareactor is right behind you.



This clown was behind me and I was not happy. Natalie on the other hand was all, "Oh, you're cute!" No. No he is not.




Do you like getting freaked out?

Howl-O-Scream lasts until October 28th, so you still have plenty of time to go.

  4. I would be so scared it's not even funny. I freak out easily with anything scary so you can imagine how Halloween can drive me nuts.

  5. This looks very fun and spooky as well. This looks very scary but what's the fun in Halloween if it isn't scary.

  6. Looks like fun for the whole family. I love options that aren't too scary because I'm the one in our family that frightens easily, lol.

  7. It's fun to see this at twilight. It seems extra spooky. I love that it looks spooky but isn't too spooky.

  8. I bet your daughter looks forward to this even every year. Nice they have spook and non-spooky things so everyone can go and enjoy.

  9. I don't love scary stuff so I like that there are non scary areas too!

  11. I would love the howl-o-scream, but I think I'd take the kids in the daytime for the spooktacular. I think they would enjoy that!

  12. This looks like so much fun! I love how they managed to create a spooky atmosphere using smoke machines. And the actors creeping up behind you, that's spooky, haha. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my this is like a serious Halloween event I have ever seen. I would go here one day and just have a great time. The smoke kind of effect and the costumers are so much fun to watch.

  14. This would come in handy with the boys this year. They've been on somewhat of a strike with trick-or-treating. Maybe an experience like this would be fun for them.

  15. OMG that looks like so much fun. I would go without the grandkids so I could have more fun. They really don't like stuff like that.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My kids love Halloween and all the festivities. I totally need to take them to a local place that has an event like this. They would really enjoy the experience.

  24. This looks amazing, but it's a BIG FAT NOPE from me!! I would much prefer Spooktacular. It does look very cool, though, for those who like scary stuff. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well this looks spooky but fun at the same time. My kids would love the zombie maze for sure.

    ReplyDelete

  27. This would be so fun. It could be like two totally seperate events with the spooky stuff starting later at night.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The clown was definitely not cute. The smoke and dusk hours would make this really spooky! Looks like it was a really good time.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm sure that clown gets his fair share of attention. ;)
    I think I'd stick to daytime cuz I'm a big chicken. :)
