We have a mini Busch Gardens update for you today with a little treat from Howl-O-Scream. Let’s strap our columnist into he “Scream Cam” and see what happens!

Howl-O-Scream “Scream Cam”

My fellow MiceChat colleague (and good friend), Summer, braved the infamous Scream Cam for a preview of one of the brand new houses for Howl-O-Scream this year, Death Water Bayou. I did the Scream Cam last year and it was terrifying, so I found a willing victim to take over this important responsibility for me this year. Thank you Summer!!!

Deep in the bayou the #6 Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows. Get out before you fall victim to her spell.

So how did Summer do? Did she manage to escape the Vooodoo Queen? Watch the video below and find out!

 

New Game

A new ladder climbing game recently opened in the Gwazi Plaza area, across from the basketball toss game. It looks to be a popular addition as several guests were trying their luck when we visited.

New Playground at International Plaza

A new Busch Gardens themed playground opened recently at International Plaza in Tampa (near the Tampa airport). The play area features cheerful animals and a train engine for youngsters to climb on, a 14 foot tall Cheetah Hunt tower, and a video screen showing clips of the park’s attractions and animal exhibits.

    Thanks for the update! I am planning to go to Busch Gardens for the first time in several years in early December, so I hope you will have more updates between now and then!

    We’ll definitely have more updates. I was hoping to get some photos last week of the construction progress of Falcon’s Fury (the new drop tower ride opening next year), but by the Scream Cam stuff was done, the park was closed for the evening. Also, right now outside of Howl-O-Scream and Falcon’s Fury being built, there’s not much new going on at the park right now.

    December will be a good time to visit as the park is doing the Christmas Town event again. We covered it last year (which was the 1st year the Tampa park has done it… the Williamsburg park has been doing Christmas Town for several years) and it was really nice.

    Cool! I visit my folks down near Bradenton a few times a year, and every time, my mom suggests going to Busch Gardens, but something always seems to come up – this time we are really going, though! :)
