EVENT DESCRIPTION

Fill fall nights with fright at Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream. In this nightly, adult-focused Halloween event, fear awaits in the Virginia theme park’s collection of elaborate haunted houses, immersive themed scare zones, challenging escape rooms, and darkly entertaining live shows. Guests should consider the park’s elevated scare factor.



EVENT SPECIAL NOTICES AND INFORMATION

Be warned: at 6 p.m. Busch Gardens® becomes a seriously scary place and may not be suitable for little ones. Please use discretion when bringing children into the park at this time. The curse spreads Sept. 25 and continues weekends through Nov. 2. This is a major Halloween event in the Hampton Roads area and is definitely worth the drive from the beach! Get ready to be frightened at the Old Country!

First, I want to say we had a great time tonight at the Membership night at Christmas Town. Everything was beautiful and the shows A+. We were excited to get there and got our tickets to get the polar bears. Didn't want to have to drag them around the park and on the rides, so we waited until the end to pick them up. BIG MISTAKE. They were all gone. Really? Why did you pass out more tickets than you had polar bears? When you reached the maximum numbers of bears to pass out, you shouldn't have given any more tickets. So we have three tickets and no bears. But, that was the ONLY thing we had a problem with. We'll be back tomorrow, weather permitting. And yes, we'll be back even if we don't get the free stuff. I love Busch Gardens. 😀 ... See MoreSee Less

Loved the tree maze and the multicultural booths. Did not like the racist/bigoted attitude of Beth from California who was serving at your Gluhwein at the Christmas market and her two colleagues. ... See MoreSee Less

Update 12:19pm* The Member exclusive Christmas Town sneak peek is still scheduled to open as planned at 2:00pm. Due to the current weather conditions, there could be a delayed opening on some attractions. We will be sure to share/communicate if anything is to change.

Great first night 🙂 The compass tree was gorgeous as always.. loved seeing it with its foliage all lit up!

Great job so far tonight

Just beautiful driving into the park tonight👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Great shows!

Was a great day there, we loved it

We're here!!!! We arrived at 7pm.

Thank you for making this Christmas Town and not Holiday Town. #KeepChristInChristmas

The most wonderful time of the year. Love Christmas Town!🎄

The talent in the shows this year are Phenomenal !! Imo

Got our bears! Thanks Busch Gardens! The tree maze was kind of meh 🤷.. the hot cocoa was yummy as always. I just love the atmosphere!

Got my bears and got to see the pretty lights before the rain came. Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow.

Wish I did not have to work. See you Sunday

Too bad we are waaaayyyy to exhausted to make it today! 😴

Top Fan Badge! Wish I could be there today 😔

Was planning on going but bowing out due to weather. Be back in a few weeks though!!

We will be there!

Praying the rain goes away. I don't mind the clouds or the cold weather, but don't want the rains.

Hoping to be there.

Can’t wait! Hoping the chance for rain goes down!

Today is the day for the member??

Pretty upset the rain ruined our membership only day! Could you open up one other membership only day?

So Will Lanier Christmas town opened last night?

Had planned on going but with the rain and a child coming down with a bad cough we aren’t going to make it.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg Will you still be open with the current rain weather conditions expected all day??
