With the start of the new fall season and everyone getting ready for Halloween, Howl-O-Scream has opened at Busch Gardens. This scary event is open now until October 31st.

Filled with terror and surprises, the attraction contains five haunted houses, with the addition of three new houses. Death Water Bayou: Blood Moon, consists of scary creatives in a swamp that come out at midnight and The Residence, which is based on a story of demons living under a suburban home, are the two returning houses.

As for the three news houses: Cell Block Zombies is a house filled with zombies who have committed vicious crimes, The Forgotten is based on vampires, and Witch of the Woods features a witch haunting people throughout the woods. 

Not only does Howl-O-Scream have haunted houses, but they also have live, spooky entertainment. These two captivating performances are “Fiends”, which is a performance filled with music and dancing, and “The Rolling Bones,” a skeleton band that plays rock music.

As park guests walk through the park, they may be surprised by such creatures as zombies, clowns, werewolves, and more. Guests will get the full spooky experience this year while still being able to ride all the thrilling rollercoasters.

Howl-O-Scream is the perfect event for people looking for a spooky experience full of rides, haunted houses, and live entertainment, making it the perfect place to have a happy Halloween.
