The terrifying Halloween event will begin on Sept. 10 and will feature heart-pounding haunted houses, scare zones and roaming spooks, along with food and drink offerings and high-energy stage shows.

In a post on social media, the theme park announced the first haunted house as “Dead Vines.”

“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,” officials described online. “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.”

According to the Howl-O-Scream website, guests will also come in contact with the scare zone “Witchcraft Bayou.”

The cult is growing, and the lure is powerful. It’s hazardous to pass through this backwater bayou, but there’s no way around. Voodoo and witchcraft aren’t real, right? Tell that to the zealous worshippers trying to shackle you with their spells. They won’t rest until your soul belongs to her too. Stay alert, or the dark magic will drag you down. (SeaWorld)
