HowlOScream at Busch Gardens Tampa starts on September 27 and runs select nights through October 26. Every year this after-hours event transforms a park known for its rides and animal exhibits into a dark and foreboding landscape.
All of the details of this year's event have been revealed to whet your appetite for horror as you wait for September 27 to roll around. As always, there's a mix of haunted houses, scare zones, and the traditional show. You can ride the rides, too, and while a night ride zipping along in the dark on Cheetah Hunt or admiring the view from the top of SheiKra's lift hill is always a great opportunity, I recommend focusing on the haunted elements. After all, you can ride the rides all year, but HowlOScream lasts for a much too brief period.
If you'd like to see the main points of what you can do at the event this year, check out the list accompanying this article. It will help build your excitement as September 27 slowly but surely approaches.
