September 28, 2021

Terror in The Park & Family Friendly Downtown, Weekends October 15-31


(Foley, AL) – Whether looking for frights or feel-good family fun, OWA has a sampling of tricks and treats this Halloween season. Guests who loved OWA’s summer show, Wonder, are in for a real Halloween treat. Seward Studios and OWA are happy to partner once again to bring you the all-new Monsters Got Talent. This free live performance is located on the OWA Island and will feature a family-friendly cast of characters full of Halloween-inspired song and dance. Seward’s monsters will compete to see who’s got what it takes to be a star — judged by none other than the ghoulish guests in the audience. Children are encouraged to attend as Monsters Got Talent is a feel-good, age-appropriate show. Get ready to sing, dance and SCREAM Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting October 15th at 5:30 and 6:30pm!
Also new this year is the relocation of everyone’s favorite family-friendly events and activities now found throughout Downtown OWA. Families can enjoy a weekly rotation of kids’ craft stations from 4-7pm and trick-or-treating at participating Downtown businesses from 5-7pm, both on Fridays through Sundays starting October 15th.

OWA is introducing the inaugural doggie Howl-o-ween costume contest and dog adoption event on Saturday, October 9th from 5-7pm. OWA will pay half of the adoption fee for each animal adopted at the event and will also offer cash prizes for contest winners. That evening will kick off the weekly Island Movie Nights event, featuring a spooky lineup of free, seasonal films. Bring the family and enjoy classic Halloween movies on the OWA Island!

There will also be a special Monster Bash costume contest with cash prizes on Saturday, October 23rd. Pre-registration is available online ahead of the event and in-person. OWA is giving away cash prizes for a variety of categories like OWA’s Choice and Most Creative. Head to VisitOWA.com/Halloween for a full list of movie titles as well as pre-registration info for the Monster Bash and Howl-o-ween costume contests.

For those 13 and up, get ready to turn up the thrill factor with a good old-fashioned Halloween haunt! Also new for 2021 is The Park at OWA Terror in the Park, now located inside the amusement park and featuring three frightful haunts. Brave OWA’s spine-tingling thrill rides along with some seriously whacky uninvited guests in the three scare zones: Invasive, Die Laughing and Uprising. With fun all day and frights at night, these socially-distanced and seriously scary attractions make for a chilling evening. Tickets are required to access Terror in the Park and can be purchased online at VisitOWA.com/tickets.

From Terror in The Park to Halloween themed family activities in Downtown, you are sure to find a wide variety of fun on the weekends, starting October 15th, at OWA.
