Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa

We’ve told you about the phenomenal Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando…but how far are you willing to go for a big and extremely fun scare? Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens in Tampa offers a series of truly terrifying experiences and events for adults to enjoy. I say adults because, like HHN, H-O-S can be too intense for the younger crowd. If you dare to roam the creepiest haunted houses, get stalked by hordes of roaming monsters, be endlessly entertained by dancing fiends, and enjoy the extra level of thrill that comes with riding the coasters after dark, this scare fest is for you! I know because I’ve been and was terrified in the most awesome and memorable way. Select dates, Now through October 28. Admission to Howl-O-Scream is separately ticketed.
