Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens 2016: The Story So Far…




Busch Gardens Tampa is hosting an Evil Encore this September, as the park will turn the darkness and mayhem on at Howl O Scream. The park will get nasty, evil and all around devilish as they unleash an army of monsters, clowns and who knows what else.

So what can we expect to see? It’s still a little early, but we’ll share what we already know.


Returning Houses

We will see a few returning houses this year, as is tradition. Many guests like seeing these houses again and again, like an old friend.

Here’s what we have so far:

  • Circus of Superstition-Last Laugh: We thought we had seen the last of the bad luck clowns, but we were wrong. It’s a good thing too, they were really on point last year, and there was some new tricks. It was also the first house at Howl O Scream that I’ve seen a girl stop, pee herself then run screaming into the night in. No joke!
  • Unearthed-Scarlett’s Revenge: This house last year was very well done, and one of the most thematic experiences ever at Howl O Scream. Moving walls, huge horned beasts, live creepy crawlies…It was no surprise that it would come back.

That’s all we have so far. We do know that Cobra’s Curse will somehow be incorporated into the event, as it should! The queue on that ride is very Howl O Scream feeling and would make for a great addition to the event. We’ll just have to wait and see!
