Back from the grave is Scream Cam, an opportunity provided by Busch Gardens Tampa to strap on a camera and experience one of the new haunted houses. At 1 a.m. this past Thursday morning, I got to experience one of the two brand new houses, Blood Asylum.
I was able to walk through a portion of Blood Asylum and be interviewed by creative director, Scott Swenson. The story of the house starts off in the queue where lightning strikes above and fans create the feeling of rain falling. The lights are flickering and the queue video shows the history of the Oglethorpe Asylum where Stu Loomis, aka “The Creature” is held. The house starts out as the power fails in the Asylum due to the storm and “The Creature” escapes from his high-security cell and goes on a killing rampage throughout the asylum skinning the other inmates faces.
Watch as I try to escape the terror of “The Creature” on Scream Cam below:
Here are some pictures and a video provided by Busch Gardens showing some scared guests visiting some of the new haunted houses at Howl-O-Scream.
As lightning rages and thunder crashes outside, “The Creature” escapes from his holding cell in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane. Now this sadistic deviant is running rampant, skinning his former cellmates and turning the mental hospital into his own torture chamber. This serial killer’s bloody playground will drive you out of your mind with fear.
