Howl-O-Scream by the Numbers

Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens is an extravagant event that entails numerous decorations and props throughout our park. Have you ever wondered how many pumpkins are in Ireland? Ever tried to count the ghosts in Scotland? You won’t ever have to wonder again.

There are:

2010 rats in France.

1500 potion bottles in Italy

1000 ravens in England

The Scare is Everywhere

Howl-O-Scream is by far my favorite time of year at Busch Gardens. The entire park transforms into an eerie, spooky place with so much to do. Looking at the park over the past couple of seasons I’ve learned some things I feel I should share with you. Hopefully these tips will help you enjoy your time even more.

Getting Around the Park with the Kids

When I’m in the park with my kids, it seems like we take the same route almost every trip. Come in through England, head to the left, hit Sesame Street Forest of Fun and start our adventure. (Tip: it’s usually not as busy later in the day because most guests have already hit it up and have headed to the back of the park.) My girls don’t particularly like the “scary” rides, so they stick to the smaller ones, including much of the Sesame Street area.

Tour de Force: 56 Nights of Fireworks

Our new summer event, IllumiNights, is a must see. From shows, to music, to lights, it's definitely an enlightening experience you won't want to miss. Here are a few tips that will help you experience our park in a whole new light.

There are so many good areas in the park to see the Tour de Force fireworks. I'll break it down for you by country.

If coasters are your thing, check out the show from France. Alpengeist and Griffon look amazing with the fireworks exploding behind them. It's a view unlike any other.

Experience Celtic Fyre Like Never Before

by Staff

Celtic Fyre, the new Broadway style show, is getting rave reviews at Busch Gardens. With a cast as talented as this one, it's bound to happen. I got a chance to sit down with some of them to talk about the show, and about themselves. It was actually quite interesting.

Not only are our dancers from across the country but some are from the other side of the world. Lead dancer Eanna from Ireland has been dancing for more than 20 years. His years of experience definitely assist with taking this show to the new level.

Don't Try This at Home

by Staff

We've had a lot going on lately in Ireland, and during your visit you probably noticed some interesting plants in the area. One is a huge vine that we use to cover the seating areas beside Grogan's Grill. If you manage to time your visit just right, you'll be able to enjoy the lovely purple or white flower clusters as well as the fragrance they provide. The whole village is engulfed with the wonderful scent of wisteria.
