They say that there’s a song that foretells your doom. Once you hear it, you’re cursed. Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa wants to make sure that you hear it. An all new commercial for this year’s event has signaled a full reveal of everything at this year’s Howl O Scream.
This year Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa will make sure that you are cursed before meeting your doom as the song is played. The idea is a very unique, and will hopefully play out very well in the park.
Video – They say there’s a song…
The theme looks to be carried through all three Howl O Scream events at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and SeaWorld San Antonio, however Tampa looks like the first to reveal it.
The idea of a random call on your cell phone with a cursed song playing is a very cool idea, and plays into the fears that being so connected with cell phones and social media can lead to very bad things.
In addition to the new commercial, Howl O Scream has released all the gory details about this year’s event, including the new house and new experiences.
