This year, SeaWorld Orlando joins Busch Gardens to host the Howl-O-Scream Halloween event for the first time ever. For 27 nights, the park will be filled with scare zones, haunted houses, angry haunts, nighttime coaster rides, live shows and a fiendishly interactive bar.

And it comes with a new deal: You can buy a two-park Howl-O-Scream ticket for $79.99 and a two-park unlimited ticket for $139.99 that lets you visit as many times as you want throughout the Halloween event, which will run Sept. 10-Oct. 31.

The annual event has been held at Busch Gardens Tampa for more than 20 years. Last year’s event was modified due to the pandemic, with 18 nights of distant scares.

Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld Orlando will run 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. to midnight Thursdays and Sundays. The event is intended for mature audiences only. Adult content includes violence, gore and blood. Costumes for guests are not allowed. Tickets to the SeaWorld event are $29.99 or $99.99 for unlimited visits. To buy tickets, go to
