Howl-O-Scream Williamsburg 2016

2016 • Howl-o-Scream

0 Members Attended

Since 1999, Howl-O-Scream has returned year after year to twist Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s lush Virginian forests into fog-choked haunting grounds. Like its Tampa cousin, the surroundings often inform the scares. Haunted houses and “Terror-tories” are woven into the park’s European theme, making fresh monsters out of old myths. England has the Ripper. Germany has the Grimm Brothers. France has the catacombs. In Williamsburg, folklore is as old as fear itself.

In contrast to Busch Gardens Tampa, Howl-O-Scream is not a separately ticketed event but included with general admission. Though it occasionally shares houses and themes with the other Howl-O-Scream events, Busch Gardens Williamsburg frequently relies on its own original icon, the pumpkin-headed Jack of the Lantern.
