(Wow, Eminem really needed some extra bucks for the divorce deal, didn't he? [ducks])

Anyway, Busch promises three new haunted houses for this year's Halloween event at its Tampa, Florida theme park:

  • Catch Your Breath: The Messengers are looking for a 13th victim to suffocate.
  • Taste of Blood: Vampires are hungry and looking for you as their next meal.
  • Radiation Alert 3-D! Get your goggles on quickly, to avoid the radioactive gas.

    Busch also offers two new scare zones and two new shows, "Sweet Dreams" and "Freak Show!"

    There's also Fright Feast, at $21.95 per person, which gets you a full buffet, exclusive showing of Sweet Dreams, plus a half-hour of early access to the houses.

    But my favorite add-on has to be the "Howl-O-Scream sleepovers" for 7th through 10th graders. For $75 per, you get "chaperoned front-of-line access to haunted houses, 'creatures of the night' animal interactions, mock Scare Squad auditions and on-site accommodations," according to the Busch press release.

    Howl-O-Scream runs Oct. 5-6, 11-13, 18-21 and 25-28, with discounted previews Sept. 28-30. Tickets and more information are available on the official website at

    Too bad I'm a little old to sleep over. Spending the night in a theme park is something me and my wife have always wanted to do.
