With less than two months away from its debut, Howl-O-Scream at SeaWorld Orlando has confirmed the name and theme of its first haunted house: Dead Vines.
A SeaWorld press release described Dead Vines as:
Something is stirring among the trees. A shiver runs down your spine as you creep forward, one timid step at a time. Is this jungle alive…or undead? There’s an ominous force at work here, a merciless mistress of ivy and evil. She’s poisoned these woods with an all-consuming appetite for visitors like you. Keep moving and find a way out before it’s too late. You don’t want to end up dead on the vine.
The park also announced the first scarezone of the event. Called Witchcraft Bayou, this area will be filled with “zealous worshippers” of dark, voodoo magic “trying to shackle you with their spells.”
The event will also feature a themed bar experience called Poison Grotto. “Unwind with a refreshing concoction and explore the enticing atmosphere of this unearthly lounge,” SeaWorld said in its press release. “It’s a fleeting escape from the deadly vines and savage servants nearby. Just be sure to keep your eyes open and pay proper respect to the one who invited you in.”
SeaWorld promised that “many more details” are to come about Howl-O-Scream. We still don’t know how many total houses and scarezones that the event will feature.
This is the first time SeaWorld Orlando is hosting Howl-O-Scream, offering some local competition for Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights when it comes to adult-oriented Halloween haunt events. Howl-O-Scream, will take place on select nights from Sept. 10 through Halloween from 7 p.m. to as late as 2 a.m.
