Have no fear… Busch Gardens announced Howl-O-Scream will return in a whole new way this fall and will include significantly enhanced safety and health measures.

Tampa Bay’s premier Halloween event will take place on Sept. 25 through Nov. 1, 2020.

The event will be modified to feature open-air scare zones, limited-capacity admission with reservations required, and physical distancing. Guests are strongly encouraged to make reservations early, as space is limited.

Protective face coverings will be required. Learn more about their health and safety guidelines here.

Universal Orlando announced just a few days ago that it will cancel Halloween Horror Nights, which would’ve celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2020.
