It’s time for Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa!
We found some spooky friends and ready to get scared!
First house of the night is returning favorite Death Water Bayou. Such awesome scares in this one!
The Dia de los Muertos scare zone is new this year. Love the theming! Both fun and creepy.
There are so many great scare actors at Howl O Scream!
Insomnia is a new house this year. Really creative scares in this one!
We’re here for the boos!
Just driving around with some zombie clowns at U-banga Banga bumper cars.
I’m sure Camp DOA is perfectly safe
I hope he makes it out alive!
The tequila bar is new this year, thanks to Dia de los Muertos.
We encountered some more creepy friends in the maniac midway scare zone!
Simon’s Slaughterhouse is advertised as a house recommended for ages 17+, and we didn’t notice anything too out of the ordinary but it was still a solid house.
Let’s not forget the amazing coasters at Busch Gardens ! We got to ride all of them, and they’re all so good, especially in the dark. Looking forward to Tigris next year!
The Black Spot is another popular returning house, taking you through some creepy pirate ships.
Unearthed is also back again, and this time we got a flashlight!
So glad that Motel Hell is back for another year!
Howl O Scream has successfully kicked off another season!

All weekend we were at Busch Gardens Williamsburg for Bier Fest. And some awesome coasters, too.
Might as well get started on the beer! Here is just some of what Busch Gardens VA has to offer for Bier Fest.
Alpengeist is still so good!!
Well. Battle for Eire is... a ride?
Happy 40th, Loch Ness Monster. You get even better with age!
I found my new home.
You can’t go wrong with any of the coasters Busch Gardens VA
Ended the night with some amazing rides on Apollo’s Chariot!
Back at Busch Gardens VA for some more coaster fun! First train of the day on InvadR, and the whole train to myself as well.
Got a few more rides in on Griffon before things get busier.
Delayed opening for Verbolten. The only new coaster for me left on this trip, so I’ll wait it out.
I’m seeing signs for these all over the park. I guess I’m out of touch with this fad. Are these the new fidget spinners?
Verbolten was a surprise hit for me! There seriously are zero bad coasters at this park.
t’s the final day for Bier Fest. Gotta get another sampler card to try some more!
Getting some gorgeous views on the Rhine River Cruise.
Giving out fanny packs to riders for loose articles on Tempesto is something I’ve never encountered on a coaster before, but hey, it’s fast and it works.
The theming on all of the Busch Gardens VA rides are really top notch. Escape From Pompeii is short and sweet with just enough fire and water for an awesome ride.
My face when I’m trying to sample all the beers on the last day of Bier Fest and it’s 90+ degrees outside and I only have 3 hours left.
The park is gearing up for Howl O Scream in a few days.
The last performance for the Happy Dutchman, closing out Bier Fest. Auf wiedersehen!
Views from the Sky Ride.
For Bier Fest they also had some brewery talks, which I always find interesting to attend.
This Busch Gardens doesn’t have quite as many animals as Tampa, but there are a few. Here are some random sheep.
Prost! Had such a fun weekend
