General Event Info
Howl-O-Scream is a yearly Halloween fright fest and Orlando’s Newest Halloween Event, held at SeaWorld Orlando. This adult-targeted event transforms SeaWorld Orlando into a late-night party with haunted houses, scare zones, rides, bars, and live shows. This event requires an admission ticket separate from daytime admission to SeaWorld Orlando. Daytime admission to SeaWorld Orlando is not included nor required.

No Bag Policy

In conjunction with our existing use of metal detection, this proactive measure will expedite the security screening process for all guests.
This will enable us to move guests through our security checkpoint more quickly. There will be less time spent standing in lines at the event gate.
Guests carrying bags will be turned away from the security checkpoint and asked to return them to their vehicle.
Exceptions to this policy may be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection. Any item required for medical reasons that will be screened is to be carried in a clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag not to exceed the size of 12” x 6” x 12”. Guests arriving with a bag not meeting those standards will be asked to return to their vehicle.
Diapers can be carried in a clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag not to exceed the size of 12” x 6” x 12”.
The Howl-O-Scream bag policy applies to the event entrance gate, due to the size of the gate and the nature of the event. This policy is not in effect for SeaWorld Orlando daytime guests. Daytime visitors enter through the park's main entrance which uses metal detection with full bag check capabilities. Guests in possession of a Daytime and Howl-O-Scream ticket will be permitted to remain in-park until the event begins. Visit the Howl-O-Scream event page for details on purchasing an all-day experience.
For the safety of our performers, scare actors, and other guests, flash photography is not permitted. Cameras are also not permitted in any of the Howl-O-Scream haunted houses.
