Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Never miss this place

    I and GF always wanted to explore haunted houses, and Busch Gardens had six of them. Stunt performers on the streets gave an aggressive performance. The makeup and masks of actors in Howl O Scream were scary and impressive. The stilt walker in Unearthed made her scream. Special effects in Insomnia house and Unearthed requires special mention. The staff were friendly and cooperative. Never to miss this place if you’re ever visiting Florida.

  • Email Verified Great time, well spent

    Over the past few years I have been attending Howl-O-Scream and it always was great fun. If you are a Halloween freak, you are gonna love this place. There are haunted houses, scare zones, live shows and lots to drink and eat. The best about this place is that they send people in small groups so there is enough timing and room for the actors to perform. This has enhanced the quality of scares. Insomnia was my personal favorite. The asylum theme was inviting and we got lost in the maze several times. The scares were like out of a nightmare. The slaughterhouse was for people 17+ as it was quite violent. We were split into small groups and were asked to explore from different rooms. This was really cool. Toys you would recognize from childhood rehashed into deadly avatars with chainsaw will make you scream and howl. Great time well spent within our budget.

  • Thrilling scare zones

    Howl-O-Scream is certainly different from other haunts and definitely in a good way. With six separate houses and scare zones, they reinvent each year and it always gets better. A few areas are quite intense and gore and are recommended only for 17 and above, and that includes the gutsy mean market and thunderous slaughter house. The actors knew their job and performed each scare with so much enthusiasm. They were so in the character. The bungee actors in the swamp evoked a lot of fun and laughter. Definitely going to come back.

  • Deathwater Bayou was awesome

    I must admit that Busch Gardens had some spine-chilling terrors. Insomnia got the better of my GF and she screamed non-stop. It had some scary special effects including projections and lighting effects. Flickering flashlights in Unearthed gave a glance of the details in the dark corners of the house and it provided a distraction therein amplifying the scares. Special effects in Deathwater Bayou was also awesome. Overall, it was a nice scary experience. Recommend this place.

  • Lots of scary moments

    The rides in the dark was its highlight. A monster or a creepy character might be giving you company. The scares are spread across the pathways and it will scare the crap out of you when you’re least expecting it. The haunts also got some bone chilling scary moments. Insomnia house was my favourite. Ticket rates were reasonable too. I will visit this place again.

  • Email Verified Scary yet fun

    Scary yet fun was what I had in mind as we left Howl-O-Scream. At Unearthed, we were given a flashlight and were asked to search and rescue the excavators. The dark lanes are of course infested with scares and are claustrophobic. The visual effects were amazing and got us on our nerves. The sound effects were the real winners. Most of the scares were out of the blue accompanied with acoustic sounds that had us jump a few times. Scare zones had its share in lifting the fun and fear factors. Will visit again.

  • Email Verified Perfect blend of horror and thrill

    Excellent Halloween themes and roller coaster rides to add a new taste of adventure. Admission fee is a bit costly than other traditional houses, but this place deserves this price. A perfect blend of horror, thrill and adventure. All actors have done well in scaring us. We screamed, jumped and ran in all haunted houses. Zombie Paintball is the best we enjoyed and loved to be there again.

  • Scare zones were awesome

    Real scare is out here at Howl-O-Scream. We had a great time and enjoyed well. Scare zones were really awesome. I am not that easily scared but this one startled me a couple of times. It is a fun place for who have adventure spirit in heart.
