Ready to Howl-O-Scream? Busch Gardens Williamsburg is haunted!
Open weekends to Sept. 12 to Oct. 26 in 2014 - Look below for SEVEN current discount ticket deals, coupons, and promo codes.
Well, it's not exactly haunted. But if it's Sept.-Oct., you can be sure that the park's fall attraction is scaring up a storm.
Open weekends through October 26, this Halloween extravaganza boasts frightening fun for all ages. In addition to the usual thrills and chills from major roller coasters like Griffon and now five-themed "Terror-tories."
These include: "Ripper Row" (in England), "Vampire Point" (in Germany), "Demon Street" (in France), and "Ports of Skull" (in Italy), plus the new "Wendigo Woods."
Eat and drink if you dare: Themed dining halls include "Blood Banquet," "Igor's Frightfest," and "Crow's Nest Grill," while bars include "Buccaneer Galley," "Demon Drinks," and "Pirate Baarrgh," and the brand-new"Inoculation Station" and "Open CASKet."
Haunted houses include the pirate-themed haunted house called "Cut Throat Cove." It joins these haunted houses: Bitten, Catacombs, Root of all Evil, 13, and Dead Line. This year's shows include "Dig it Up," "Night Beats," and "Fiends."
Park Hours & Fun for the Kids
Busch Gardens Williamsburg is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only during this time. Click here for exact times and dates for Howl-O-Scream.
For the little ones, there's Halloween music, playgrounds, the usual kiddy rides, and the Sesame Street Forest of Fun located in England.
Personally, I wouldn't take little ones to such a scary place...especially with the new "minion hoards" potentially jumping out from every corner. I recommend that if you have little kids, leave the park by 6 pm to avoid the really scary stuff. But if you're willing to deal with their nightmares, be my guest!
