Florida’s top-rated Halloween event debuts a new kind of nightmare with launch of 

TAMPA, Fla. (Aug. 21, 2009) – Busch Gardens Tampa Bay kicks off it’s tenth season of gut-wrenching scares by launching the Howl-O-Scream 2009 website,, expanding the event to seven horrifying haunted houses, and introducing the beautiful new face of evil itself – the fashionable Ms. Vayne and her deranged models. 

For 17 select nights, Howl-O-Scream 2009 will prove that evil never goes out of style. The devious creatures that infest all-new haunted houses, scare zones, thrilling shows and even the streets themselves will have guests watching their backs, and bone-chilling roller coasters keep the screams coming all night long. 

Howl-O-Scream 2009 is a separate ticketed event, and the general admission price is $69.95. Savings are available on advance ticket purchases for Passport Members and Florida Residents. Discounts are also available through promotional codes provided on Bud Light, Domino’s Pizza and Applebee’s products statewide. 

The event runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night during October: Oct. 1-3, 8-10, 15-17, 22-24 and 29-31. Freaky Preview lets guests sink their teeth into the scares a week early on Sept. 25-26 for discounted rates as low as $29.95 for general admission and $24.95 for Passport members. Operating hours are 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. during Freaky Preview and on Thursday nights. Friday and Saturday hours are 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Howl-O-Scream 2009 has more haunted houses than ever before, designed to tease your deepest, darkest fears…

·         NEW!  Delta-Epsilon-Delta: Pledge Week  For decades, the most mysterious sorority on campus has invited only select girls from the top families to join. But this year, it’s open rush, and the sisters are welcoming new members with open arms. Can you escape before you fall victim to the sinister secrets of this twisted sisterhood?  No one does it like a ?E? girl

·         NEW!  Nightshade Toy Factory  By day, the old Nightshade Toy Factory appears abandoned. But as night falls, the mysterious manufacturing plant glows and hums as it creates the diabolical dolls, terrible teddy bears and possessed playthings of your childhood nightmares.  These twisted toys are alive…and they are coming after the adults who have forgotten them.

Some of the most demented houses ever are back by popular demand with some horrible new twists. These returning favorites are sure to terrorize first-time visitors and die-hard fans alike:

·         Reconstruction: The Doctor Is In Dr. Edger VonAngst has the skill and technology to make you over…but what will you become?  This mad reconstructive surgeon has set up shop, putting human parts back together with mechanical pieces and combining flesh, bone and steel in the most hideous ways.  Nip/Tuck has never been like this!


·         Death Row Vengeance  The inmates at Grey Echo Penitentiary are slated for execution, and they blame you. With their last breath, they curse those who do nothing to save them from the electric chair or lethal injection and vow to haunt those who watched them suffer. Will you make it out alive when they come back to make good on their dying promise?


·         13  Each October, the underground members of The Messengers come out of hiding to seek out 13 unlucky victims, who are tracked down and tortured before the gang feasts on their flesh. This year, they have already claimed 12 lives so far… will 13 be your unlucky number?


·         Taste of Blood  Once revered as royalty, hordes of undead vampires have now been forced underground into the subways and sewers to avoid the sunlight. By day, they feed on rats to survive. But as night falls, these fanged fiends take to the streets to seduce fresh blood. 


·         Trapped in the Walls  The gruesome fate of an innocent family made headlines when it happened. Years later, evil still lingers in the rooms where the tragedies happened. It has seeped into the walls, trapping dark demons and infesting a house that can’t let go of its horrible history.

At Howl-O-Scream, even the sidewalks aren’t safe from the things that go bump in the night. Four scare zones and nine bands of roaming hordes will keep guests watching their backs as they explore 335 acres of fright:

·        NEW! Unearthed  Ancient evil rages when archeologists unearth the tomb of a feared Egyptian ruler, releasing his spirit into the world of the living.  Ahmenhotep and his underworld minions will carry out a dreaded curse, seeking revenge on those who dared to defile his final resting place.


  • NEW!  Banshees  According to legend, a banshee will wail around a house if someone there is about to die. When several banshees appear at once, it is said to foretell the death of someone great or notable. Here, Banshees glide through the darkness, preying on the living and looking to make their screeching songs come true.

  • NEW!  El Carnaval del Muerto In the small town of Decada de Sustos, the locals come together once a year to celebrate death.  But in the midst of the wild revelry, visitors to this tiny village unwittingly play an important part in this macabre party by becoming the victims of the raucous and bloodthirsty townspeople.

  • NEW!  Werewolves As night falls, a hoard of restless half-man, half-beast monsters patiently wait for innocent guests to stumble into their lair. Those who are not worthy to join the clan will be preyed upon as dinner. These scavengers’ insatiable hunger is matched only by their cunning and determination to satisfy their need to feed. 

·         You never know where your next scare is preparing to pounce. Just when you thought you were safe, Roaming Hordes of clowns, zombies, monsters and more take their terror to the streets and sneak up on unsuspecting victims. Who’s watching your back?

After braving bone-chilling coasters in the dark such as SheiKra, Montu, Gwazi and Kumba, you can catch your breath at these twisted live shows:

·         NEW!  Full Moon Cabaret: The Magic of Jason Byrne As darkness descends on the Desert Grill each night, The Academy of Magical Arts’ “Stage Magician of the Year” Jason Byrne takes to the stage with tantalizing tricks and ominous illusions as he presents his unique brand of award-winning killer magic.

·         Fiends  Is there a doctor in the house?  These captivating creatures of the night will infect you with dance fever and keep your pulse pounding with their deranged dance party. But when Dr. Freakenstein’s naughty nurses start operating, the diagnosis is always “code pink.”

Busch Gardens Tampa Bays’ Howl-O-Scream:

Face Your Fear


            Howl-O-Scream, presented at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, wins, in my opinion, being an overall top notch Halloween event. Every single detail was in place and I was not disappointed by anything that I saw there. This was the first year that I attended this event and I wasn’t expecting much, due to the fact that 99% of the people that I talk to here in Central Florida about Halloween always bring up Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. This event presented several live shows and six mazes. Each and every maze was extremely well done with attention to detail from the sets, lighting, costumes and sound. I was truly blown away with each and every maze.


The first maze, and one of the best I have been through, was Escape From Insanity. Our trip through “Sunny Meadows Asylum” begins in the reception room, where we are told by the head nurse, with her Tammy Faye makeup job, that we have been “expected”. We then travel outside of the asylum to see several inmates wondering around the dumpster and a hospital guard that has obviously had a bit too much coffee. We then enter the Asylum through a back door and are assaulted immediately with smells, sounds, and sets that are incredible. No detail was missed. Each and every scare was well thought out, coming from every direction. I noticed that the actors in all of the mazes at Howl-O-Scream are extremely well trained, as I never noticed one actor out of place, out of character, or simply just chatting with one another. Everything was very theatrical. We work our way though the kitchen, electrical rooms, medical wards and even the bathrooms as the crazed inmates and staff constantly assaulted us. Eventually, we hear that there is an escape attempt and that the facility has gone into lockdown. The atmosphere gets tenser and we see that the inmates have broken through a wall and are now roaming free outside amongst broken pipes and debris. We ourselves finally escape through a giant sewer pipe back into the safety of the park. This attraction, as well as all of the others had a COMPLETE story line that they stuck to and that you were able to follow throughout the entire maze. The ONLY complaint I have here at this maze was towards the end, when all of the inmates are supposedly going into lockdown, and the atmosphere is getting more tense, there were several dead spots where nothing much was happening. It needed just a little more “beef” towards the end to make it really climatic.


            Ripper Row was another great example of story telling in a maze. We are transported back in time to the age of Jack the Ripper, as he is slashing his way through the alleyways of London. Again, sets, lighting, costumes and sound were all well implemented. Each and every time we saw Jack, he was accompanied by the sound of a church bell that gonged loudly, marking his presence. It was an excellent little touch that carried throughout the maze. The bar scene with the bartender sprawled out on top of the bar was a great scene, not because it was necessarily scary, but that it was very theatrical. The bartender, whom we presume is dead, makes a quick reach out to us as we pass by. As he is reaching up at us, Jack appears from behind the bar, shows us his knife, then proceeds to slash the bartenders throat at the same time that we hear his famous bell toll. Incredible timing on the part of the actors and the whole scene takes about four seconds. It doesn’t frighten, but it just adds that class and theatricality that I believe is important in an attraction.


            The Mortuary was the next stop visiting The Reaper and Grimm Funeral Parlor and unfortunately, they haven’t been doing a good job of keeping the bodies in the ground. Again, the sets, costumes, lighting and sound were all excellent. The scares in here were probably the most thought out, and well executed. Actors dressed as flower pedestals, hiding in the Pipe Organ pipes, underneath piles of ashes, inside of staircases and hidden amongst the plethora of hanging corpses. You had no idea where any of it was going to come from. The ending was well done as we exit the Mortuary and end up in a cemetery, where a “preacher” is telling us HIS “gospel”. As we walk along the stacked up coffins, we keep our eyes on him, listening and watching, which is a great distraction for the five or six scareactors hidden amongst all the coffins and debris to give us one last startle before we exit.


            The Scare Zones in this park were also well done, ranging from “Cursed” which had Witchdoctors, lepers, omens and superstitions abound, to the “Grisly Gardens” with monster plants and statues that if you pay attention, will move as you walk past. Very theatrical again, and the actors here did a great job. Whoever did the actor training for all of the mazes and the scare zones should win an award, for as I mentioned earlier, not one actor was out of place, or out of character.


            The only complaint I have overall for Howl-O-Scream was the marketing. It was barely mentioned at all here in Central Florida, and if they want the numbers that they are expecting, they are going to have to get their name out there, and entice people to the park. They have an awesome product with Howl-O-Scream, and a lot of people don’t even know that it’s there, which is a shame. It’s a great event, and it needs to be publicized better.
