Busch Gardens is offering an all-new experience at their Howl-O-Scream event, with eight haunted houses, five scare zones, three shows and a nightly rock concert put on by the “rock stars of horror” – Sylvie and her killer band, My X.
Howl-O-Scream takes place during 18 nights in September and October and features more haunted houses than ever before, including one unique adventure where you’re all alone.

“Alone” is a new, unique haunted maze in which Busch Gardens is inviting guests to wander through – all alone – if they dare. Guests can also choose to go with up to three companions if they are too scared to go solo. Described as a lunatic’s labyrinth, “Alone” is a house you must escape in order to not become part of Master Alexander Daedalus stockpile of “cultural remains.”

The other new haunted house for Howl-O-Scream 2010 is My X: Revenge Rocks. Visitors try to get backstage to see Sylvie and her killer band, only to be faced with a life-or-death race.Returning this year are five favorite haunted houses from the past, including Nightshade Toy Factory: Son of Nightshade; Delta Epsilon Delta: Extreme Rush; Deconstruction: The Doctor is out of Control; Death Row Vengeance: No Escape; Taste of Blood: A Different Vein; and Trapped in the Walls: Ghostchasers

Five all-new scare zones will be featured at Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream, including Xtreme Fanatics, Road Trip, Crazed Love, Spiders and Snakes and Light of Doom.
There are two new shows plus one returning favorite for this year’s event. My X Live will rock all 18 nights of Howl-O-Scream, with performances at 10:30pm and Midnight every night on the Gwazi Plaza stage. Blood Relations is a sinister musical package with sadistic humor and a family of relatives with more than just skeletons in their closets. It performs nightly at the Desert Grill. Fiends is a deranged dance party featuring Dr. Freakenstein. It performs nightly at the Stanleyville Theater.
