Howl-O-Scream 2019 unearths long-buried icons of the past as well as new nightmares as Busch Gardens Tampa Bay celebrates “20 Years of Fear” with horrifying haunted houses, terrifying scare zones and thrilling rollercoaster rides through the dark.
For two demented decades, Howl-O-Scream has been haunting Tampa Bay each fall as the area’s premier Halloween event.
To celebrate 20 years, Howl-O-Scream will feature some returning favorites and some new fears. Returning houses include
- Simon’s Slaughterhouse
- Motel Hell: Infestation
- Insomnia: Patients’ Revenge
- Death Water Bayou: Wrath of the Queen
- The Black Spot: Bloodshed
The Residence will be a new haunt featured at the event this year. Guests will enter the pristine home of the picture-perfect suburban Clark Family, but beware of unseen horrors – once you’re invited in, you may never make your way out. Don’t let yourself become the next sacrifice in their sinister devotion.
Howl-O-Scream 2019 will also feature an unprecedented nine zones throughout the park, including three new scare zones:
First Fear: The horrors of Howl-O-Scream’s haunted past are the first frights to greet you, rising from the dead and bringing 20 years of fear back to life. Come face to face with Dr. Livingsdoom, the vampires from the House of Vayne, Trickster and more.
Little Nightmares: Take a creepy walk down memory lane to the bygone era of papier-mâché masks and homemade costumes sure to stir up the nightmares of your childhood.
Carpe Noctem: The eerie quiet of this gothic Romanian cemetery is shattered by the triumphant screams of vampires and the sobbing moans of their victims. This immersive zone even offers guests the opportunity to climb into a coffin to get a feel for the nightlife of the undead.
