Last week was the opening night for Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa and they were kind enough to invite us out for their VIP night. So of course we sent Renée and Morgan out to take in the night, and if their night is any indication, it's going to be an amazing year for this highly rated event.

Time for Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa
We spent some time with a few creepy friends before heading out on our adventure
Getting some night rides on Cobra's Curse and Cheetah Hunt before attacking the houses
And if drinking a yard of beer is your thing, you can also do that at Howl O Scream!
First house of the night at Howl O Scream is Death Water Bayou. Got some great scares!
Unearthed is a great returning house from last year that uses the former Gwazi queue and structure.
Circus of Superstition is the returning 3D house at Howl O Scream . Beware if you're afraid of clowns.
Club Karver has music and dancing, if you need a break from the scares.
Motel Hell is new to Howl O Scream this year, and is sure to be a favorite, with its retro motel theme.
I love how the Howl O Scream scare zones are spread out throughout the park, and are always full of surprises.
The Black Spot is another new Howl O Scream house this year, and who doesn't love a house with ghost pirates?
Ever want to ride bumper cars with zombies? Dreams come true at Howl O Scream
Night rides on Falcon's Fury! Yes please!
Zombie Mortuary was our final house of the night at Howl O Scream , a returning favorite.
The Fiends stage show plays 4 times nightly, and of course takes some jabs at the 2016 election
Lots of great scares and houses all around this year at Howl O Scream! Thanks for a fun night!

Overall Cobras Curse is a crazy fun ride and something that is definitely needed at the park. It has good forces without too much crazy spinning and will do amazingly well with all of the parks demographics.
