Tonight we attended Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld Texas. This was interesting to me because I've only ever been to Howl-O-Scream at a Busch Gardens park and I've always wanted to visit the event at SeaWorld to see what the differences are. Here's some of my notes...

- The event was a legit "Halloween" event. I was expecting it to be a little lighter since it's at a park that attracts a much younger crowd.
- There were a LOT of kids at this event, and the majority seemed to be really having fun and not letting the scares get to them.
- All the mazes were decent, but A couple of the mazes here were REALLY GOOD. Like reminded me when Universal used to do super cool and different stuff like give you a flashlight, or a helmet, etc.
- Are all the hot girls at chain-wide Howl-O-Scream thing??? I don't think I remember seeing this many sexy girls at any other park Halloween event.
- SHAMU'S HALLOWEEN SHOW WAS ***AWESOME!!!***
- It was really weird having "Howl-O--Scream" at "SeaWorld" but at the same time there was something super cool about it!
- This was Kristen's first Halloween event, and while she didn't do any mazes, she had a REALLY good time. The scare zone characters interacted with her quite a bit and she loved it!

Some photos...

Frightmare Forest was one of the longest haunted houses I've done! Super creepy & lots of fun!

Image

By far one of the coolest Halloween shows I've seen is Shamu's Rockin' Creepshow! Loved this!!!

Image

Prey was AWESOME! They hand you a flashlight, Its actually super dark, & the characters top notch! Loved this!

Night rides on @SeaWorldTexas roller coasters are amazing! Another highlight of Howl-O-Scream!

We found Scarlett! I think she wanted to kill us...

This concludes my first Howl-O-Scream at a SeaWorld park! What a great GREAT event! Highly recommend Halloween at SeaWorld Texas!

I was honestly REALLY IMPRESSED with Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld Texas. Maybe it's because I wasn't expecting a legit haunt event that rivals some of the more popular haunt events to be put on at a SeaWorld park, maybe it was because it was just super cool seeing a Halloween Shamu show, maybe it was because it was Kristen's first real haunt event and she loved it. I dunno. It's probably just because they put on a REALLY GREAT event that's flown a bit under the radar over the years, but if you are ever in Texas and looking for a great Halloween event, this is it!

Great to hear and see about this event. I've heard good things about it. Hopefully I can make it next year.

Het TPR! I was here on October 9 2016! It was very less crowded! I bought me a Quick Quene Pass, & got to ride the rides many times as I wanted! I didn't get to ride the water rides but only one time each because I had to leave San Antonio go back home in Houston where I'm always unhappy at! But I really had a good time here, I think I want to come back to sea world sa often! Here are my pictures! This is my very first pictures! Sorry if I Didn't get any good pictures!

Here's a small video construction update. I can't wait to ride a new INTAMIN coaster in America.

Screamscape posted some reader-submitted photos of Wave Breaker construction. I don't care that this is a small ride, I am just thrilled to see a new Intamin going up in the U.S. The drought is over!

Sweet! Been meaning to take the kids to this park. Haven't been to San Antonio since 2004, and I've been itching to get back. This and Thunder Rapids over at Fiesta Texas make for some very compelling reasons to go next year....
