Howl-O-Scream 2017 Details ~ Busch Gardens Tampa
Busch Gardens Tampa’s Howl-O-Scream returns this year for another 19 horrific nights. This year features two new haunted houses, five scare zones and thrill rides in the dark, some of which are “infected” with roaming creatures in the night.
The new houses to this years event are:
NEW! Undead Arena: Live
In a post-apocalyptic world, survivors of the Great Conflict have been divided into The Worthy and The Unworthy. Now for sport, you are The Unworthy and the stars of a gruesome event at the Undead Arena: Live. Invaded with Brain Eaters, this gauntlet is an almost impossible feat with no guarantee that your group will stay together.
NEW! Demented Dimensions
Constructed above a vortex of otherworldly energies, the abandoned Sterling Manor hold doors to unwanted worlds, creating a series of portals in Demented Dimensions. Every room and hallway leads to a different universe where the rules of your world do not apply and escape is nearly impossible.
We also get 3 brand new scare zones for this years event.
NEW! Facebook Fans Name Scare Zone
See what happens when savage school kids punish their cruel headmaster. This year, Howl-O-Scream is giving Facebook fans the power to choose the name of an abandoned schoolhouse-inspired scare zone. Voting starts today, Aug. 17 on the Howl-O-Scream Facebook page and ends Wednesday, August 30. The results will be announced the following day.
NEW! Carnie Camp
The backstage area of an old carnival breathes new life with its dirty inhabitants. Eerie street-fair music fills the air, as spine-chilling fairground performers prowl for new test subjects to be featured in the next spectacle of this horrid attraction.
NEW! Meat Market
Watch a band of sinister and cannibalistic creatures feast on the weak. They might just smell your fear and add you to their monstrous menu.
Dare to enter through the perils of the post-apocalyptic Wasteland where scenes of past and present atrocities still linger in an abandoned strip of roadway. Rush through the rotting piles of debris, because those who remain will do the unimaginable to survive and make escape nearly impossible for newcomers.
A paranormal Playground lurks in the shadows of Howl-O-Scream 2017. Squeaking swings and rusty merry-go-rounds are now inhabited by hordes of deadly toys and lost children eager to stalk unsuspecting guests.
Howl-O-Scream 2017 runs select nights from Sept. 22 through Oct. 29. Operating event hours are 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. This year, tickets start at $39.99, plus tax; and special offers are available for Busch Gardens Pass Members.
