Only back in the USA for 6 days and where do we go last night? Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s Howl-O-Scream Halloween spectacular. Kind of a weird choice for a “last night with my husband event for the next 6 weeks” but then again…nothing says “I love you” like getting the pants scared out of you. If you know me or my family, you already know how much we LOVE Halloween! And my husband has grown more than fond of the whole experience, I married the “right” one.
So we packed some sandwiches and headed out to arrive exactly when we were allowed inside. Howl-O-Scream is around $40 a ticket but you still get to ride all the rides so it’s a steal compared to the usual $100+ ticket price. The zombies and haunted houses don’t start until 7:30pm so you have a couple hours to get your adrenaline pumping beforehand.
To say we enjoyed ourselves would be the biggest understatement of the year! It was ridiculously fun. The rides were awesome, each one cool in its own fun way and there was no one there from 5-730. I mean we had zero wait time! We managed all the rides before 7:30 and then headed for the haunted houses.
I won’t lie, it was H O T. I mean humid – sticky – sweat thru your shirt hot. But we didn’t care, it was that much fun…so much fun I had to create a movie…ENJOY!
