Ten years of fear.

Taking 2008’s viral lead, Howl-O-Scream unveiled its new mascots online months before opening night. The House of Vayne fashion show would be taking over Busch Gardens and dressing it up in their brutally hip image. A nightly runway show ended with the ritual sacrifice of one lucky onlooker. An upcharge nightclub built into the Marrakesh Theater catered exclusively to visitors over 21. For the first time ever, the event included seven haunted houses, two of them new. Four new scarezones replaced the previous year’s three, as well as the expected roaming hordes. If any wary travelers still doubted Howl-O-Scream, the tenth anniversary proved its reputation with scary, sexy style.
