Busch Gardens’ Kicks Off Annual Howl-O-Scream Event
Frightful creatures have taken up residence at Busch Gardens® Williamsburg for Howl-O-Scream®. Buccaneers, vampires, fiery fiends, legendary villains and mythical beasts are waiting for the first guests to arrive Sept. 12. At the stroke of 6 p.m. on Friday, the ghouls and haunts come out to play and the park becomes a seriously scary place. Parents and guardians should consider the park’s elevated scare factor when deciding to visit Busch Gardens with young children during Howl-O-Scream.
A curse has spread over Busch Gardens in the form of a song. The only way to lift it is to spend a night exploring Howl-O-Scream’s five Terror-tories™, including the new Wendigo Woods™ and six haunted houses.
The park’s newest Terror-tory, Wendigo Woods, explores the frightful nature of the unknown through psychological scares that lets a guest’s imagination run wild. Other seasonal park offerings include a spooky lineup of shows, featuring Monster Stomp™ on Ripper Row® in the park’s Globe Theatre and Vampire Vogue™, a new merchandise shop in the Oktoberfest section of the park. Dining and spirit options like Pirate Baarrrgh™ in the park’s Italy village and Igor’s Fright Feast™ in Ireland provide a refreshing break from the chills and thrills.
