I took the hour drive from Orlando to Tampa Bay on Saturday to see the KaTonga show before it ended (more on that later). But I was surprised to see how much of their PG-13 Halloween event, Howl-O-Scream, looked ready to go.
As you can see above, the main sign for Howl-O-Scream is already greeting visitors as they enter the park. Click Here to read all about the Halloween event.
The Crown Colony House porch is also a great place to see the construction progress for Busch’s new attraction. Not a lot is know about this attraction except that it’s big, fast and involves animal interactions. Click Here to read more.
Here’s the coaster we rode first. Gwazi is a big wooden coaster with two different tracks. I had been warned that this coaster would shake my marbles. It did a bit, but I thought it was a lot of fun. You feel like your car is going to fly off the tracks.
Next it was time for us to see KaTonga at the Marrakesh Theatre. KaTonga ended its run this past weekend after six years at Busch Gardens. Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy will open in the theater this winter. (More about Cirque Dreams Here.)
Here’s a short video I shot of KaTonga: Musical Tales from the Jungle. The whole show is for sale on DVD through Busch Gardens’ website. But I’m not sure for how much longer.
One last picture of a haunted house entrance. This is the one everyone is talking about – Alone. For an extra fee you can go through alone – and claim a T-Shirt if you make it all the way through without using a chicken exit. Minotaur Storage? Someone has so many minotaurs that they need storage?
