Howl-O-Scream returns earlier than ever to Busch Gardens Tampa

Fear returns to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay this fall, as Howl-O-Scream is back earlier than ever for 28 killer nights.


This year’s event will have nowhere to hide, thanks to two brand-new haunted houses, three returning houses, and eight scare zones — plus three unpredictable hordes lurking in every corner of the park.

In addition to the haunts, frightfully fun entertainment will be found onstage with “Fiends!” returning to the Festival Field, and at Dragon Fire Grill with “The Rolling Bones” performing electrifying rock covers.


Tickets are on sale now, and the separately-ticketed event will run on select dates from Friday, Sept. 10 through Sunday, Oct. 31. Discounts are available for Fun Card and Annual Pass Members.

Stay tuned for more updates from Howl-O-Scream on this year’s haunted houses, experiences and more. For more information about Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, visit
