Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream 2012

I am a kid at heart when it comes to theme parks. Throughout the past 10 years, I have had a collection of season passes at all of the major theme parks in FL (Busch Gardens, Sea World, Disney & Universal Studios). It's one of the many things I love about living in FL.

Here are a few facts about me:
  • I love Halloween
  • Haunted Houses do not scare me
  • I rescued a kitty on Halloween and named him Boo
  • I halfway joke around about having a Halloween themed wedding
  • I am petrified of Clowns - even Ronald McDonald freaks me out. 
Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream is turning 13 years old this year and this is one of our favorite events to go to. The houses are always a blast and the shows are great. Gabe loves Fiends with Dr. Frankenstein and his naughty nurses. There is a nightclub with a DJ and the specialty drinks are always good. I need those strong drinks to give me some C.C. - Clown Courage.

2012 will mark our third consecutive year going to Howl-O-Scream. Busch Gardens does an amazing job with the event and to mark it's big birthday, they are bringing back 13 years of horror-filled memories with the most sinister icons, diabolical characters and disturbing scenes to create the ultimate “best of” scrapbook of scares.

Here is the Haunted House lineup for Howl-O-Scream 2012

NEW! Blood AsylumAs lightning rages and thunder crashes outside, “The Creature” escapes from his holding cell in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane. Now this sadistic deviant is running rampant, skinning his former cellmates and turning the mental hospital into his own torture chamber. This serial killer’s bloody playground will drive you out of your mind with fear.  
Bring it on Blood Asylum!
 Nevermore – Beating hearts, swinging pendulums and a raven’s cries haunt the manor of Lenore, creating a demented and twisted nightmare. Step inside to experience the gothic terror that maddens the lord of the house. and feel delusion overcome reality. Find your way out of this horror story before paranoia authors your final chapter. 
That's supposed to scare me?
 Zombie Mortuary – No one remembers how the epidemic started, but now, zombies live here. The undead that infest this small town funeral home feed on the fresh flesh and brains of mortuary mourners to satisfy their insatiable hunger. Avoid the walking dead or you may find yourself deeper than six feet under.  
I LOVE Zombie's! Not scared at all. 

Ultimate Gamble: CONDEMNEDVampires have fallen out of vogue and the Ultimate Gamble casino has been shut down. The power is off, and the neon signs that once lit up the sky have gone out. Only the bravest guests dare visit the empty carcass of the once-vibrant casino, grabbing their flashlights to “enter at their own risk.”
This was my favorite Haunted House from last year returns! Nothing like walking through a casino with Vampires. YAY
 Nightshade Toy Factory: MUTATIONThe old Nightshade Toy Factory has long been patrolled by diabolical dolls, terrible teddy bears and possessed playthings, but recent containment issues at a nearby nuclear facility have started to affect these terrible toys. Now, the mutations will stop at nothing to devour the humans that have “enslaved” them for so long. 
I don't really like dolls that much. Diabolical dolls and terrible teddy's kinda freak me out some. 
 NEW! Circus of Superstition 3-DYou’ve tried to avoid black cats and sidewalk cracks, but Trickster will make sure that all those years of bad luck catch up with you! Under his command, crazed circus clowns challenge you to survive 13 superstitions in their 3-D Tent of Terror, but it will take more than luck to escape this whole new dimension of fear.
WAIT - WHAT? NO NO NO. 
I will be sitting this one out for sure. What is wrong with these people. Not only crazed circus clowns, which is my worst nightmare, this is in a 3-D tent? Have fun in this house alone Gabe!
Are you planning on going to Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream this year, or another large Halloween event? What scares you the most?
