It’s October, which means Halloween for many theme parks, including SeaWorld. At SeaWorld Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio, they hold an awesome family friendly Halloween event called SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular. SeaWorld San Antonio turns things up an extra notch with Howl-O-Scream. When the clock strikes 7pm, the Spooktacular ends and the Curse begins. Grab your Shamu Trick-or-Treat bag and let’s check out Halloween at the SeaWorld Parks.

SeaWorld Halloween Spooktacular

SeaWorld parks have been holding their Spooktacular event this Halloween season as usual, which is great for the whole family.  Included with your daily park admission, or annual pass, this event is a great experience for day guests, and annual pass holders.  Starting at 12pm, this event is great for little kids who perhaps aren’t old enough to stay up for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Guests are encouraged to come to the park dressed up in their favorite Halloween costumes, and take part in the events all over the park which included:


All along Bayside Stadium, families can trick-or-treat among cute decorations, pumpkin fish, catfish, dogfish, mermaids and other fantastical undersea creatures.  You will also get your fill of candy at all the trick-or-treat stations along the way.





Penelope’s Party Zone

At Bayside Stadium this underwater party zone, is a place where kids can dance with a rocking’ DJ along with SeaWorld characters dancing and posing for pictures with guests.






Sesame Street Count Down To Halloween

Join some iconic sesame street characters like Elmo, Burt, Ernie, and the Count as they sing and dance to Halloween themed songs.






Spooktacular Dance Party

At the end of the night in the Sea Village Square near the front of the park, with lights, DJ, and SeaWorld Characters your family can end the note rocking your way to the car!



SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular event is a must experience if you are an annual pass holder in Orlando, San Diego or San Antonio.

Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld San Antonio

if you live in San Antonio, once the clock chimes 7pm, if you don’t want your little ones to come face to face with zombies, vampires, scary clowns and more, you better run… because after 7pm, SeaWorld San Antonio becomes Cursed, and Howl-O-Scream Begins.





Howl-O-Scream has been cursed by a song this year.  Those how have heard the song will remain cursed until they survive all 5 Mazes. Erin McKinney from the Unofficial SeaWorld Podcast went to SeaWorld San Antonio, and was able to break the curse.  So we will bring you an overview of the event along with video of the special Halloween Killer Whale Show, Shamu Creep Show.

ICU: Intensive Cursed Unit

This asylum was established to care for those who have been affected by the curse.  While physicians were trying to find a cure, they instead found themselves cursed too.

Prey: Where the Hunter Becomes The Hunted

Outside in the woods of SeaWorld San Antonio guests enter the world of Prey, where through trees, and on dirt paths guests come face to face with something that is now hunting them.

Den of the Departed: Zombie Takeover

The Voodoo queen is back from New Orleans to reclaim her cemetery and is raising the dead.  So you better watch out for zombies.

Frightmare Forest

Also outside in the shadowy woods surrounding this Texas park is filled with corpses, creepers, and things that lurk in shadows. If you have ever been afraid of the dark, or walking alone outside, you will find this maze to be full of what your nightmares are made of.

Sea Oddities Sideshow: Clowns In Control

A circus came to town, and guests now find themselves wandering through this demented maze with clowns, tunnels, strobes and undersea themes.





Scare Zones:

Part of the Howl-O-Scream event at SeaWorld Texas also includes scare zones that are themed to help incorporate the themes of the mazes near them.

  • Psychopaths – Is where patients from the ICU roam freely terrifying guests.
  • Ports of Skulls – Known as the port of calls for the damned of the world, this rowdy area, is just dying to get close to park guests.
  • Vampire Point – Dusk has just set on SeaWorld, and dawn is hours away and vampires are roam the streets and ready to feed.
  • Sideshow Row – The Smiley Face Clown gang is in town, terrorizing guests.
  • Demon Street – The dead have risen and are retracing their funeral procession, and trying to bring guests back to the underworld with them.
  • Rehab Bar – For guests who might need some liquid courage, Rahab is the place where you can get some adult beverages and enjoy a dance party.


  • Fright Feast: Cirque du Soulless – Enjoy an amazing meal with savory food, while you watch the oddest show on earth in this unique horror dining experience.









Shamu Creep Show

Unique to SeaWorld San Antonio is the Shamu Creep Show, that celebrates the Halloween Season with a  show that uses some iconic Halloween pop music, skeleton wet suites, and Jack as your MC.








Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld San Antonio is a tremendous value, because unlike Halloween events at other parks, it is included with your park admission and your annual pass.

We hope that you survive the Curse!
