This year's theme is Unearthed
Scareactors and guys and girls selling shots welcome us to the park
Unearthed: Scarlett's Revenge is new this year. It's really well done and makes good use of Gwazi
Circus of Superstition 3D and Unearthed food truck in Gwazi Park
Our visit to BGT #HowlOScream was cut short due to weather, but the park makes use of the large space for scares
Returning favorite houses include The Basement, Zombie Mortuary & Zombie Containment Unit
The stage show Fiends takes place several times a night, while you can also enjoy a meal and beer
BGT always does a great job turning every pathway into a scare zone. No one is safe!
Too bad we got rained out but still enjoyed our night at #HowlOScream
Amazing update Renée, thanks again for sharing some great pics from Florida. Can't wait to see more from Howl O Scream!!!
