Howl-O-Scream Tampa Bay Returns for 2022 Season

Howl-O-Scream returns to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay from September 13 to October 31 on select nights.

This year’s event includes five haunted houses, nine scare zones, four shows, hidden horrors in the dark, and roller coaster rides in the dark.

New this year are two haunted houses, two scare zones, and new show.

NEW Haunted Houses

NEW! Stranglewood Estate: The halls and walls of what once was a lively home filled with laughter and lavish parties, have witnessed the pitiful souls that once entered unaware of their inescapable fate. For Madame Gwendolyn, years of torture and torment developed a hatred for the living, including her parents who did not escape her wrath. At the heart of this opulent estate, guests will step into her secret basement room where her servants faced their untimely death in this grim, blood-soaked prison. Welcome to Stranglewood Estate.

NEW! The Residence: Home for the Holidays: Merriment turns murderous at this suburban family home. Christmas arrives earlier than ever this year at The Residence: Home for the Holidays, an all-new house filled with horrors waiting to be unwrapped. Holidays are best when spent with loved ones, but there is no guarantee for guests to survive this silent night.

NEW Scare Zones

NEW! Ravens Mill: Cries of fear and mercy take over the Ravens Mill, a nightmare-cultivating corn field haunting those who venture through these creepy pastures.

NEW! Beyond the Veil: In the depths of a dark dense forest fairies and orcs roam freely as you stroll through this place of shadows. Guests must beware, when walking past Beyond the Veil, they will be faced with demonic creatures of misfortune and malevolence.

NEW Show

NEW! 50/50: Choose Your Fate: At this all-new show, the host will make everyone believe the odds are in their favor when they are not. Fates are sealed long before guests spin the wheel because regardless of choice, the game show host always wins.
