Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream is the place for horrific Halloween frights in Tampa Bay! Make your way through seven haunted houses, including two new houses just for 2016! Watch out for the Crash Test Zombies, who will try to eat your brains. The Roaming Hordes return in Scare Zones and will sneak up on you when you least expect it! You see no one is really safe at Howl-O-Scream!
Are clowns really a happy……or does their evil side come out when you least expect it? You decide who will have the last laugh at the Circus of Superstition! At the Evil Encore, you can get Fear Photos taken , visit the Shop of Horror for exclusive Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream souvenirs, and enjoy signature specialty drinks and shot stops!
Visit Motel Hell to wander through a deserted motel where the paranormal presence of the former owner still lurks around every corner. Enter with caution, as you may face your worst nightmare! Other haunted houses include Zombie Containment Unit 15: Moving Target, Unearthed, Death Water Bayou, Zombie Mortuary, and The Black Spot!
