“So we’re hiring right now, we are hiring the Halloween scare squad, so get your applications, we are hiring for thousands of positions,” Erika Diprofio, SeaWorld’s Marketing V.P. said.

Howl-O-Scream is also catered to an older crowd.

“Howl-O-Scream is for a mature audience, so we suggest you leave your little ones at home,” Diprofio said.

However, SeaWorld’s annual Spooktacular event that offers day-time trick or treating for the family will still go on.

Kerri Kapich, with the San Diego Tourism Authority, says SeaWorld has a proven track record of attracting new tourism to the county and the local tourism and hospitality industry needs an increase in business as it begins to recover.

“It’s gonna benefit all of our people here in San Diego and our region in so many ways,” Kapich said.

Howl-O-Scream opens Sept. 17 and runs through Oct. 31.
