2012 • Howl-o-Scream

3 Members Attended

Lucky number 13.

Though the event following would center on the calendar year, 2012 was Howl-O-Scream’s true 13th anniversary. With The Trickster taking on icon detail, the park celebrated its usual way by adding three new haunted houses to its collection. Circus of Superstition 3-D marked the first 3D house since 2008. The returning Ultimate Gamble: CONDEMNED received a unique upgrade in the form of interactive flashlights that flickered and died on cue. In keeping with 2011’s Dark Side of the Gardens design, nowhere was safe from the roaming bands of creeps and crawlies. A lone scarezone, Faded Memories, served as a makeshift museum of Howl-O-Scream history.
