Busch Gardens Europe reveals 2007 Howl-O-Scream plans

Published: August 20, 2007 at 11:02 AM

News today from Busch Gardens Europe, in Williamsburg, Virginia:

The park announced the line-up for this year's Howl-O-Scream (wiki updated with information from the Busch press release).

The park is adding two mazes and a scare zone in a new village, "The NeverAfter," designed for visitors age 17 and up. The village is themed to fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, with macabre twists.

Also, the park announced that it is selling 2008 season passes, which can be used for the remainder of 2007, using its EZPay system. That allows visitors buy their pass by making monthly payments over 12 months, instead of paying the full price upfront. There are no interest charges. Passes are available online at, or by calling 1-800-772-8886.

I heard that Busch Gardens Tampa does an awesome job with Halloween. Last year I read in the Orlando Sentinel that Howl-O-Scream ranked #1 for a Halloween event. I forgot who was #2 -- possibly Mickey, and Universal's Halloween Horror Nights ranked #3.

Scary images will soon be gracing Orlando billboards. I'll take some pictures for those who don't live here.

I am very excited to hear that Busch Gardens Europe is introducing new mazes again this year. If they are as good as Wicked Woods was last year, they will be an excellent addition to the Howl-o-Scream attractions. Way to go, BGE!!!
