Opening Weekend for Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens

Besides being able to pull off great puns, Busch Gardens Williamsburg knows how to pair the PERFECT entertainment experience with each and every holiday. One of the first up in the 2017 holiday season is Howl-O-Scream, where the park undergoes a terrifying transformation at 6 p.m. sharp. Haunted houses, themed Terror-tories™ and creepy crawly creatures lie in wait, eager to give you a VERY good scare. If you get a thrill out of being spooked, then you probably already have your tickets ready for this weekend!

HAUNTED HOUSES

Inspired by the history of late 1700s Paris, France, the Catacombs is a creative reimagining of the miles of underground tunnels filled with bones!

The tents of terror at Circo Sinistro will make you squirm as you witness the deranged performances in the bizarre world of the circus! (Check out the Circo Sinistro scare cam!)

The intricate horror stories behind Cornered and Deadline will leave you trembling, and Lumberhack’s ghastly recreation of a brutal logging camp mishap will make you giddy with fear! Scarlett’s Revenge, a Howl-O-Scream fan favorite, returns with an exploration of a scorned and wrathful demon who seeks revenge against the villagers who buried her alive!

EXPERIENCES

As always, the park will feature Halloween-themed shows that put the treat in trick-or-treat! Cast with talented performers with state-of-the-art costumes and lights, you’ll love Fiends, Monster Stomp on Ripper Row, and more!

No Escape is a truly unique escape room experience that features two adventures packed with riddles and tricks for you and five others to solve! Choose between the Case of Mr. Karver or the Case of the Haunted Hotel, and claim victory before time runs out!

TERROR-TORIES

Five frightening worlds converge at Busch Gardens to deliver fearsome fun: Axe Alley, Demon Street, Ripper Row, Vampire Point and Sideshow Square(an all-new scare zone!).

If your thirst for terror isn’t quenched after a night of haunted houses, scary streets, spooky shows and ghastly games, you can always take a Howl-O-Scream tour, quench your thirst at one of six Spirit Bars or catch thrills on one of Busch Gardens’ adrenaline-pumping rides and coasters.

Howl-O-Scream runs on select nights from this Saturday, September 23 through October 29. Don’t miss out on a chance to make heart-pounding memories with friends and family!
