Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa

One of our favorite Orlando Halloween events is Howl-0-Scream at Busch Gardens - haunted houses, roaming hordes and rollercoasters in the dark. It may not be in Orlando, but it's still top of our list!

We actually possibly enjoy this event a little more than HHN. The haunted houses are super and the staff members halt the line every few minutes. This "pulse" entrance for the guests is, in our opinion, better than the conga line at Universal Horror Nights. This means you don't always see where the person in front of you gets a fright.

While guests under 18 will be admitted, this is really an adult event and Busch Gardens recommend the event for guests aged 18 and over.

Meet The Author
Our Florida journey began over 2 decades ago when we were searching for somewhere warm for winters. We discovered Florida was the perfect choice. We started spending every winter there and absolutely loved it. Orlando quickly became our permanent ‘winter home’. We were true Snowbirds! We decided to make our commitment a little more concrete in 2005 and bought our first vacation home – Serendipity at Indian Creek. We soon discovered we LOVED being in the hospitality world, so we decided to expand a little. We purchased Sleepy Hollow in 2010. Five years later we came across Serenity Lake House in 2015 and just had to have it to complete our portfolio. We now spend half the year on Disney’s doorstep in Orlando,. The rest of the time we're either in our second home in Scotland overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch, or enjoying time with family in Cyprus. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Ours is served with Pixie Dust on top :)
