SeaWorld Orlando’s sirens return as Howl-O-Scream enters its second year. The frights are more spread out and the theme park has leaned into the idea of packaging some haunted houses, scare zones and bars under a common theme. Orlando Sentinel tourism reporters Dewayne Bevil and Katie Rice discuss innovative ideas such as sparking ghouls, incorporating height to enhance scares and a sea goddess/drag queen show that will cost an additional $10. For the kiddos, Spooktacular lives on just in a new location in the park. Howl-O-Scream operates on select nights through Oct. 31.
