Howl O Scream Tampa tickets go on sale, plus first two houses revealed!


The past never dies…not really. That’s especially true if you’re Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa. The event is celebrating 20 Years of Fear, and they’re dusting off all the old icons of the past. Yesterday we got a look at The Butcher, Trickster and Dr. Livingsdoom, today the Voodoo Queen and the Death Jockey rolled out.

Also rolling out today is an all new deal that you have to take advantage of early, before your time runs out.

Now before we show you the big deals, we have to say that we were wrong. Last month we predicted that Howl O Scream will be included with theme park admission, and boy did that turn out to not be true. Oh well, sorry bout that…that’s what happens sometimes when rumors trickle down your face.

At any rate, Howl O Scream is going on for several select nights beginning on September 20th and running all the way until November 2nd. That’s a huge change from years past, as the screams usually stop well before Halloween.

The event will take place on 22 select nights in September, October and November. That’s more than ever before at Howl O Scream.

Here’s the dates:

September 20, 21, 27 and 28

October 4-6, 10-13, 17-20, 24-27, 31

November 1-2

So far we know of two returning haunted houses, and if it’s anything like last year, we can expect to see six haunted houses. We’re going to guess that Unearthed will be one of the houses to get the ax this year, since that location for the house is under construction…for real this time…with the new Gwazi replacement.

What is returning for sure is Simon’s Slaughterhouse. This one was new last year, and featured a “17 and up” recommendation. Let’s hope they amp it up this year.

The other house that is definitely returning is the long running, and fan favorite pirate themed house, The Black Spot.
