Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream Is Back!

Busch Gardens® Howl-O-Scream® returns with a twisted new game and an evil host. In this ghoulish game show, every guest is a contestant, led to their destiny by the master of scare-monies. Your fate awaits with five haunted houses, five terror-tories™, four sinister shows, two party zones and unsuspecting scares awaiting their victims at every turn. Beyond the haunts, guests can take horror to new heights with nighttime rides on eight world-class coasters, including the all-new Pantheon. This year’s event takes screams to the extreme with three NEW haunted houses and three NEW terror-tories, complete with six menacing BOOze bars and bites to fuel the fear and tackle the night’s frights. 

Parental discretion is advised after 6:00 PM, as this year’s event contains amplified scares that are not recommended for children.

The park is open on select dates through October 31st. Opening times vary (10am, 12pm or 5pm), so be sure to check their website for the schedule.  *Event dates and details subject to change and/or cancellation without prior notice.
