SeaWorld Orlando has released the full lineup of haunted houses and scare zones for this year’s Howl-O-Scream event, which will be the third year the park has held it.
Howl-O-Scream 2023 features 5 haunted houses and 7 scare zones, so let’s dig in.
New and Returning Houses
Beneath the Ice: The Meltdown – In this new house, you’re about to witness the hottest rescue attempt ever made. The ice siren has been captured and her fiery sister has arrived just in time to release a blazing wrath and save her twin.
D3LER1UM666 Laboratories – Explore the new house D3LER1UM666 Lab, a government-established mercenary HQ established to counter the threat posed by the Sirens. Tour the facility and help support the cause. What could possibly go wrong?
Dead Vines: Nawlins Nightmare – In this new house, you’re trespassing on her land and it’s going to take some Nawlin’s magic to get you through this one. Keep your head up and eyes open! You don’t want to miss this! In the end you might get beaded… or you might be-dead.
Blood Beckoning – Scratch’s strength is weakening and she’s out for blood. No one is safe and what Scratch wants, Scratch gets. Her beauty comes at a price…will you pay it?
Captain’s Revenge: Drowned in Darkness – A ship on an endless journey sails by Darkness. You can seek the horizon, but you’ll never reach it. She has a hold of this vessel now, and you might have just boarded the last cruise you’ll ever take.
Blood Light District (New) – Those who walk the streets of this borough will tempt your deepest desires. You can fight their beckoning, but you will not win. Do not be fooled by their beauty and lust. Stay too long and you will be forever bound by blood.
CarnEvil Pier (New) – The freaks, sinister Barkers, and demented clowns that inhabit the Carn-Evil Pier welcome you to stay a while. Have a drink and a snack. You can even try your luck at the games… but beware, if you lose, your soul belongs to the pier.
Toxic Turmoil (New) – A toxic catastrophe has caused this hidden chemical landfill to be overcome by mutated creatures, humans, and plant life. Your only chance is to make it to the exit at the other end of the yard. Be careful where you step, not everything is as it seems.
Portal of Passage (New) – Welcome to Portal of Passage. We invite you to meet some of Howl-O Scream’s most devious inhabitants. Have a drink, catch a performance, and enjoy the atmosphere while you wait for the night to begin. The gates will be opening soon, will you be a spectator, a participant, or a victim?
Frozen Terror Alive in the Ice – The brutal Arctic conditions are the least of your worries. These will be the most persistent zombies you’ll ever meet. Not even the frozen Arctic wasteland can wipe these creatures, so remember that before entering this zone.
Terrors of the Deep – Out of the dark depths you will encounter a beautiful sunken village filled with remnants and treasures from the surface. These treasures have been claimed by a cursed Pirate crew that will give No Quarter to scallywags and landlubbers.
Witchcraft Bayou – It’s hazardous to pass through this backwater bayou, but there’s no way around. Voodoo and witchcraft aren’t real, right? Stay alert, or the dark magic will drag you down.
Cursed Lagoon (New) – What’s lurking beneath the surface? See for yourself…if you dare. Located in Forever Pearls.
Siren’s Song – The sirens are here to tell their story…and feast on your fears. Don’t miss a moment of this mesmerizing outdoor show.
Monster Stomp – Prepare yourself for a darkly entertaining, pulse-pounding musical performance starring the one and only Jack the Ripper.
Themed Bar Experiences
CarnEvil Curiosities (New) – What’s your poison? Unwind with a refreshing concoction and explore the enticing atmosphere of this unearthly lounge.

Sirens’ Last Call – Creatures of the shadows need a place to play too. Could it be this rusted-out underground warehouse? Glance around and do your best to blend in.

Don’t be fooled by the unknowing wanderers who make their way to this specialty bar. The carnival magic is contagious, don’t let it infect you.
Longshoremen Tavern – This year, there be a new tavern in port where pirates warm their bellies with flamin’ rum. You might hear tales of mythical monsters and intrepid adventurers. You might discover an old SeaWorld treasure that’s been (partially) resurrected. Take a break from the sirens and squalls and plant your weary hides here. The Longshoremen are dying to entertain you.
Tormented – This is one place where a cold frosty one is a good thing. Take refuge from the wintry terrors of the Arctic hellscape outside and do a little refueling here. If you’re feeling mischievous, you can even join in and frighten your fellow expeditioners while they’re braving the horrors beneath the ice. How’s that for refreshing?
