There is a song… they say that it curses all who hear it. And if you venture into Busch Gardens Williamsburg during Howl-O-Scream, you may not escape the curse. Haunted houses await at every turn. Terrifying creatures swarm through the streets, popping out from every corner. Your only sanctuary? The park’s famous thrill rides, which hurtle screaming riders through darkness at speeds up to 75 miles per hour. Parents and guardians should consider the park’s elevated scare factor when deciding to visit Busch Gardens with young children during Howl-O-Scream. Because at the stroke of 6 p.m., the ghouls and haunts come out to play and Busch Gardens becomes a seriously scary place.
Every year, Howl-O-Scream transforms Busch Gardens Williamsburg into one of the area’s most beloved Halloween attractions. Even if the rides and the haunted houses don’t get you, the creatures in the dark will be there to block your every escape. Among those creatures: a terrifyingly talented Jack the Ripper, who commands a crew of skeleton backup dancers during the Monster Stomp on Ripper Row live show.
