Weekdays 10:00am - 3:00pm

Those Halloween nights at Florida theme parks can be expensive. But you can save a lot if you plan ahead. From now until July 21, you can buy a ticket for Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens for $25-$30. That’s about 75% off. Pass members can get in even cheaper… as low as $20 a night. But keep in mind that deadline… 11:59pm July 21. Just head to the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay website and look for the “sinister sale.” This is the 20th year of Howl-o-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Howl-O-Scream returns September 20 this year and runs through November 2. I always suggest going a night or two AFTER Halloween. The crowds are smaller and temps are cooler. By the way, they’re looking for over 400 scare actors this month. Go to if you’re interested or head to an audition on July 19, July 20 or July 26.
