This year’s modified Howl-O-Scream event will include ten “terrifying” scare zones throughout Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s expansive 335-acre park, including four new zones – Lycan Landing, The Junkyard, The Escape and Grey Echo Penitentiary. Designed to scare safely, the creative production team has consulted with medical experts to modify this year’s zone designs with a physical distancing focus, as well as enhanced health and safety measures, while staying true to the terrifying experience fans crave. With significantly limited capacity to create plenty of open space, guests will experience new horrors as they dash between thrilling rollercoasters and the fan-favourite Fiends show every Friday through Sunday from September 25 through November 1.
As guests roam between zones and coasters, they can enjoy select favourites from the Bier Fest menu available throughout the night. Delicious drinks and dishes from favourite culinary cabins are the perfect grab-and-go accompaniment as guests head to the Festival Field for the fan-favourite Fiends show starring Dr. Freakenstein and his frightful entourage, on its largest stage ever. Bench seating will be arranged in a physically distant manner to ensure there is plenty of space for a limited number of guests to enjoy each performance.
