Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream

The season thrills and chills is upon us. In Williamsburg, VA there is one event that is sure to deliver the scare of the season: Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens of Williamsburg.

Starting in late September and running through October 31, the park, usually pristine and polished, transforms into a wicked wonderland filled with ghouls, witches, zombie and freakish characters.

Experience Frightening Festivities:

Haunted Houses: This year there's not one, not two, but FIVE haunted houses to experience. Each house has a different, yet equally eerie theme. Are you brave enough to enter them all?

Spooky Shows: Special Howl-O-Scream shows will delight you with music and fun– especially Monster Stomp, the popular percussion show which has been revamped and is better than ever!

Frightening Features: Discover rides & coasters in the dark and scare zones throughout the park will keep you on edge as you wonder what awaits around the next corner.

Too scary for your family? Visit us during the day to experience family-friendly rides, Sesame Street Forest of Fun and Land of the Dragons children’s areas, and up-close animal encounters perfect for fall fun. BUT BEWARE once the clock strikes 6 PM, the Howl-O-Scream scares begin which may not be suitable for young children.

This season don't miss this spine-chilling fright fest!
