Things are getting spooky at Busch Gardens!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has announced the return of its premier Halloween event, Howl-O-Scream. It is returning for its 21st season beginning on September 25 through November 1, with a new modified physically distant experience for guests. Guests can still enjoy the experience of unexpected heart-pounding horror in open-air scare zones and the thrilling experience of Busch Gardens nighttime roller coasters.
Along with extended health and safety measures, Busch Gardens will be requiring face coverings, temperature checks, and significantly reducing the park’s capacity to ensure the best experience possible for everyone.
The park has also announced that the fan-favorite Fiends show starring Dr. Frankenstein will be shown from its biggest stage yet! The show will be performed outdoors from the Festival Field Stage with physically distant seating for guests, enhancing the safety and enjoyment for everyone.
That’s not all! The annual recruitment for scare actors is now open, but with a slight modification. Actors interested in participating in Howl-O-Scream can virtually audition for several of the frightening roles by submitting their application online at the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay official website.
Busch Gardens would like to remind guests interested in attending Howl-O-Scream to make reservations as soon as possible as reservations are required, and space is limited. Reservations are now open and can be made here.
