Howl-O-Scream Dates & Times

Fill fall nights with fright at Busch Gardens® Howl-O-Scream® every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from September 23 - October 29*. At the stroke of 6 p.m. Busch Gardens becomes home to a host of creepy creatures that lie in wait for unsuspecting victims. Fear abounds in the Virginia theme park’s collection of elaborate haunted houses, immersive themed Terror-tories™, and darkly entertaining live shows.

Busch Gardens opens at 10 a.m., but becomes a seriously scary place at 6 p.m. when the haunts come out for Howl-O-Scream. Guests should consider the park’s elevated scare factor when deciding whether Howl-O-Scream is appropriate for young children.
