Recently my family and I visited Busch Gardens in Williamsburg Va. Every year Busch Gardens puts on a frightful Howl-o-Scream event that is a totally spin chilling adventure. Not only are the rides and attractions fun and exhilarating but you also have the chance to be spooked and the many Haunted houses you can visit during the Howl-o-Scream themed evening. Watch out for the ghosts and goblins to walk the asphalt streets in each town village adorned with skeletons, devils and phantoms that will jump out to startle you with their terrifying pranks. It’s Halloween at it’s best and complete with shows, rides, attractions and the tastiest food that puts other theme parks to shame. I have one request if you visit Busch Gardens, Williamsburg…please try the chocolate torte sold at the Oktoberfest, Das Festhaus. It’s an absolute must! You can also catch a live show while dining on authentic German fare. Not a fan of German food? Not a problem. At Busch Gardens, Williamsburg there is a smorgasbord of food to choose from in Italy, England,Ireland, Scotland and more. My family loved our day at the park and first time experience at Howl-o-Scream. I really encourage you to go with your family. The park is truly filled with tricks and treats!
Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens
My kids and my daughters friend were ready for fun at the park. Then at night when the full moon shown bright and the park was glowing in hanging jack-o-lanterns, the fun of Halloween astounded them. They loved the interactive aspect of the park at night and the Haunted houses we walked through. I have to admit, they got me a few times. I have a blood curdling scream that woke up the dead!
The park is filled with scary and festive decorations. I loved the hanging pumpkins that had an eery soft glow at night.
All the rides are open except for a few water rides. It’s too cold for those this time of year, but you aren’t missing a thing. There is so much to do and see here.
You can have your face painted by Artists who make you look spooktacular! Children and adults walked around with fake scars, character faces, zombies faces and mauled faces. Nothing went unnoticed!
You can eat chocolate torte… which is a must!!!! This giant slice of heaven is a rich chocolate cake, stuffed with fluffy whipped cream buttercream.
You can win fun and friendly Ghosts!
and yes, there are dead people lying around. It’s spooky and fabulous!
I met my boyfriend…Dracula! He and I go way back.
You get to walk through faux castles that are adorned with hunchbacks.
You can go for a boat ride too
and you get to watch your kids have the time of their lives. That’s worth the trip to me.
I hope you decide to visit Busch Gardens with your family. If you missed Howl-O-Scream you can visit during Christmastown starting November 1. I plan on being there to capture more memories with my family. Happy Halloween!
