“SeaWorld Orlando is only scratching the surface, and guests will not know what will be lurking around every corner of the park. There are several all-new attractions coming to this year’s haunt, along with fan favorites from last year and a few re-imagined experiences that were announced today,” leaders said.

The company announced that the event will feature an all-new show, “Lurking in the Depths,” and two new scare zones called “Sea of Fear” and “Cut Throat Cove.”

The event already announced that guests will come face-to-face with terrors inside the re-imagined haunted houses “Captain’s Revenge - Drowned in Sorrow” and “Beneath the Ice.” Guests can also check out the “Longshoremen’s Tavern” and “Tormented” bars before experiencing a number of roller coasters at night.
