Busch Gardens has announced that Unearthed is returning to this year’s Howl-O-Scream. The house first appeared last year, and was the featured house of the event. The story of the house focused on Scarlett, a village healer who turned to dark magic to avenge her husband’s killers.  As her powers grew, she was hunted, trapped and buried alive deep beneath the park – but has now been Unearthed to summon terror on unsuspecting guests. Below is the description of the house from the updated website:

During maintenance at the park, an excavation crew uncovered a centuries-old house buried deep beneath the ground. Upon entering the house, a sinister force is Unearthed. The vengeful demon takes her revenge by collecting the eyes of all who enter the house.

This fall, Howl-O-Scream: Evil Encore returns for 21 nights to Busch Gardens.

Howl-O-Scream is a separate-ticketed night event. No costumes are allowed.
