Busch Gardens Williamsburg is preparing for an exceptionally frightening Halloween this autumn with the return of Howl-O-Scream, one of the biggest Halloween-themed events on the east coast.
Busch Gardens’ six haunted houses, six nightmarish Terror-tories and hair-raising escape rooms will be accompanied with some terrifying shows.
2019 will be Howl-O-Scream’s 21st season and promises to be more frightening than ever with two new escape rooms and the return of one of the venue’s most popular show, albeit with a new twist.
As Peter Dunklee, vice president of entertainment for Busch Gardens Williamsburg, commented:
“We’re always looking for opportunities to elevate the event’s scare factor. We try to balance the fun and the scares and we’ve accomplished just that with two new escape room experiences, additional startles in our haunted houses and resurrecting a guest favourite show.”
This year’s Howl-O-Scream marks the return of the popular show titled ‘Jack is Back.’ This street-style performance stars Howl-O-Scream’s icon Jack, who made his Howl-O-Scream return last year in The Vault XX. Jack performs alongside pumpkins and scarecrows in this disco dancing celebration.
Howl-O-Scream will kick off at Busch Gardens Williamsburg on September 14, 2019.
