TAMPA — Vampires and witches and zombies are ready to help you forget your worries.

What You Need To Know

It’s a service currently being offered at Busch Gardens in the form of Howl-O-Scream.

The scare event is back, and it’s starting a week earlier - September 10th through October 31st.

Five houses and eight scare zones await, along with their shows and spooky hordes of scare-actors.

Vampires are getting the red velvet treatment this year with The Forgotten haunted house, and beautiful Florida foliage sets the scene for a trail of terror with Witch of the Woods house.

Watch out for the dilapidated garden shed is all I can say.

Once you are in the witch’s realm, you’ll “discover” a forgotten village (aka the 80s old koala house?) where it’s clear things really went wrong (I mean body parts and blood everywhere y’all!).

There’s witch worship involved, but that’s nothing compared to what’s going on at The Forgotten. They hanging up and then eating people- it’s sick! And it’s so hard to get out- the stress!

Stay in the middles of the walking paths in scare zones- there are things in the bushes.

No one can actually eat you or cut you up there, but the chainsaw guys look like business.
