Florida’s top-rated Halloween event is celebrating its unlucky 13th year – are you ready for Howl-O-Scream? Be forewarned – this blog and its event are for all of you brave adults out there – leave your kids at home, there is blood, gore, violence and adult content – no kidding. No kids.
Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream's 13th season is expected to be the most horrifying yet. I’m talking 335 acres of fright. Can you handle it? Even as you walk between rides and haunted venues, you need to beware – devious creatures will pour forth from the shadows! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Here is one small, bloody, taste of what awaits, and I quote, “Blood Asylum – As lightning rages and thunder crashes outside, “The Creature” escapes from his holding cell in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane. Now this sadistic deviant is running rampant, skinning his former cellmates and turning the mental hospital into his own torture chamber. This serial killer’s bloody playground will drive you out of your mind with fear.”
If you still think you can handle it, the event runs Thursday through Saturday nights, Sept. 27-29, Oct. 4-6, 11-13, 18-20 and 25-27. There’s also a Freaky Preview on Sept. 21-22. Hours are 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. during Freaky Preview and Thursday nights. Friday and Saturday hours are 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.
