Creeping closer each day, Howl-O-Scream returns to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay with a hair-raising, skin-crawling celebration of ghoulish delights beginning September 10 through October 31 for 28 select nights. Today, the park announced a brand new haunted house coming to this year’s event.

  • As a sinister surprise, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has revealed the first of THREE ALL-NEW haunted houses opening for the season on the Howl-O-Scream social media channels.
  • Just beyond the twists and turns of Tigris, fear fans will enter the underground vampire realm of “The Forgotten.”
  • Victims will be drawn into a hidden world beyond the rubble and rocks of an unsuspecting quarry, where dark secrets lurk in the shadows. Just beyond a hidden gutter entrance, the legend of the human uprising is revealed as a swarm of starving vampires plot their imminent revenge. Will those who enter return to the world of the living or are they destined to become the newest minion of the Forgotten army?
