28 August 2018 by

Fall is one of my most favorite times of year.  I love the changing leaves, cooler temps, bonfires, and the thrills of Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream.  Kicking off September 15-October 28, 2018 (Select Dates).

Included with park admission. Scares start at 5:45 pm.

Fill fall nights with fright at Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream. This year we are celebrating 20 years of fears and an all-new Era of Terror with more scares than ever. Fear awaits in the Virginia theme park’s collection of elaborate haunted houses, immersive themed scare zones, challenging escape rooms and darkly entertaining live shows.

Busch Gardens becomes a seriously scary place at 6 pm when the haunts come out for Howl-O-Scream. Guests should consider the park’s elevated scare factor.
