“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.”
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.
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.
