2019 • Howl-o-Scream

5 Members Attended

A birthday blow-out.

To celebrate 20 years of Howl-O-Scream, Busch Gardens invited back all its icons, even the noticeably decayed Dr. Livingsdoom. Besides Unearthed being put back in the ground in favor of The Residence, the event retained its 2018 line-up with most earning significant revisions. Supplementing the mascots unleashed by 2012’s Trickster, a record nine scare zones haunted the grounds. Though the 17-and-up warning was dropped from Simon’s Slaughterhouse, liquor tastings were offered at select locations to keep the atmosphere adult.
