Scream Queens stars Lea Michele and Emma Roberts lived up their new show’s name as they could barely contain their shrieks while trying out a thrill ride at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday.

The actresses were at the annual convention to promote the upcoming Fox horror-comedy series from Ryan Murphy.

Roberts, 24 and Michele, 28, who play Kappa Kappa Tau sorority sisters in the show, held hands and looked terrified as the dropped on the special Scream Queens Mega Drop theme ride.

Costar Keke Palmer also joined the girls.

“Can’t believe we went on this,” Roberts wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the ride and tagging her castmates.
