Smart Destinations Partner Busch Gardens Hosts Exciting “Howl-O-Scream” Event

Smart Destinations customers can visit Busch Gardens this October to enjoy the return of their thrilling, adults-only Halloween event.

Smart Destinations’ attraction partner Busch Gardens Tampa Bay celebrates the fall season with the return of a truly horrifying seasonal event – the “Howl-O-Scream.” This adults-only Halloween experience is a special way to explore Busch Gardens after hours and indulge in some thrilling late-night fun.

In addition to a complete décor, music, and ambience shift between day and night, there will also be a number of special attractions available only during Howl-O-Scream, including haunted houses, a live stage show, and “scare zones” populated by the 13 featured evils of this year’s event. The most popular rides and rollercoasters of Busch Gardens will also be open to attendees of the Howl-O-Scream during the event, providing a rare chance for visitors to experience rides like the Cheetah Howl in the dark.

Smart Destinations customers can visit Busch Gardens as part of a customized Go Select Orlando Pass, or in combination with a trip to partner attraction SeaWorld Orlando. While the Go Select Orlando Pass offers admission to Busch Gardens, it does not include entrance to the Howl-O-Scream event. The event tickets can be purchased directly from the Howl-O-Scream event page.

“Many of our Orlando travelers love to visit Busch Gardens during the day with their kids using the Go Select Orlando Pass,” said Keith Fogarty, Regional Director with Smart Destinations. “This special event is a great opportunity for them to come back at night, enjoy some adult time, and explore the park in a whole new way.”

Howl-O-Scream 2013 launched on Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th, and will continue for the next four weekends at night (including Thursdays). For complete information on this special event, visit the Howl-O-Scream site.
