Howl-O-Scream Williamsburg 2017

2017 • 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.

France | X/5
Deep within these tunnels lie mile after mile of bones — the final resting place for those who are buried here. But all is not as quiet as it appears. As guests venture forth into the dank dripping corridors of rat infested remains the voices of the dead begin to speak and some have taken shape.
| X/5
It's 1977 and a picturesque farming community is in an uproar over the ongoing disappearances of its residents. Each time someone goes missing an intricate corn husk doll is left behind leading many to suspect local corn-farmer Jasper McCobb. The McCobb farm has fallen into disrepair since the death of Jasper’s mother. Could the missing townspeople be somewhere in the maze of maize? Join the search party and find out.
Escape from Pompeii | X/5
Deep underground construction of the newest line of the Pompeii Metro was moving smoothly until an ancient pipe was accidentally struck. Now the strange gas is leaking quickly and everyone trapped inside is infected.
Curse of Darkastle | X/5
Something is looming in the castle over the hill. It’s encased in ice and the Dark Castle that was once ruled by a fire breathing giant is now frozen to the core. The castle has been taken over by some bone chilling inhabitants made of ice. This ice has teeth and this ice…bites.
Oktoberfest | X/5
Hikers beware! The woods hold a terrifying secret. More than 50 years ago a logging camp was abandoned after a horrific accident where saws ripped into human flesh instead of tree bark. Tragically the loggers perished only to inexplicably awaken from death filled with inhuman rage. The undead loggers rampaged until every living thing in the camp had felt the bite of their axes. Now the forgotten lumberjacks lie waiting for unsuspecting campers to stumble into their den of the damned.

The Festhaus | ??/5
