SeaWorld Orlando has revealed more of its lineup for its first-ever Howl-O-Scream event.
Joining the previously-announced Dead Vines haunted house will be the Arctic-themed Beneath the Ice. SeaWorld described it in a press release as:
In the icy wilderness above the Arctic Circle, a research facility was lost…buried under snow and cut off from the outside world. Something compelled you to join the rescue party, but doubt is creeping in. Was that laughter, or the wind? That shiver you feel isn’t just from the cold. These chambers aren’t just frozen tombs. They’re pulsing with unspeakable horrors, and you’ll have to stay frosty and alert to survive.
The house’s story will be related to another ice-themed attraction, the Frozen Terror scarezone — which SeaWorld said will be filled with “icy, subhuman walkers.”
The park also announced a new show for the event called “Monster Stomp,” based around in Victorian London during the age of Jack the Ripper, and another themed bar experience, Tormented.
Howl-O-Scream Orlando will run on select nights from Sept. 10 through Halloween.
Knott’s Scary Farm brings back scarezones for 2021 return
Fans who went to the 2019 edition of Knott’s Scary Farm will see some familiar sights during the return of the event this fall.
After the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the event last year — and kept Knott’s Berry Farm closed for more than a year — the park will bring back the same four scarezones it offered in 2019. They are:
- Forsaken Lake
- Ghost Town Streets
- The Hollow
Knott’s will announce more about the 2021 event each Thursday on its official Scary Farm Twitter account. Tickets won’t go on sale until Aug. 16.
Disney World reopening more shows, attractions in August
Three Disney World theme parks will see more shows and attractions return after pandemic-induced absences.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the “Wonderful World of Animation” projection show will grace the Chinese Theater again starting Aug. 1. Two weeks later, “Beauty and the Beast — Live on Stage” will begin shows again at its theater in the Sunset Boulevard section of the park.
Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom will regain Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor starting Aug. 8, while Epcot’s Seas Pavilion will welcome back Turtle Talk with Crush starting Aug. 21.
Disney also confirmed the final performance dates for two of its current nighttime shows. “Epcot Forever” will end on Sept. 28, while Magic Kingdom’s “Happily Ever After” will get its swan song on Sept. 29. Both will be replaced by new, permanent shows on Oct. 1 — the 50th anniversary of Disney World’s opening.
