Last month it was reported that Busch Gardens Tampa was infusing it's yearly Howl-O-Scream Halloween event with a little zombie flavor. We can now say that "The Dark Side of the Gardens" will be overrun with scores of the undead, and all the details are here!
Marketing director Jill Revelle states that " even the streets aren't safe, zombie hordes will pour forth from every shadow in an attempt to show fans the most horrifying Howl-O-Scream yet." In the middle of hundreds of blood-thirsty flesh eaters clogging every concievable exit in the park, there will be 3 new haunted houses with the headliner being Zombie Mortuary - following the tale of a small town funeral home that was overrun by the living dead. The other 2 houses will consist of an Edgar Allan Poe themed gothic horror maze, and a Las Vegas style casino; home to some of the sexiest (and deadliest) vampires that you have ever seen. All this, plus 4 returning haunted houses from previous years, will surely make this year's event one that is not to be missed. Head on over to Busch Garden's website for the skinny on ticket pricing, event dates, and lots of zombie madness!
