The ghosts and goblins of Howl-O-Scream are taking over Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. 

The haunts lurk around every corner after dark, even on the thrill rides and especially in the new gruesome realms intended for guests 17 and over. 

There's Simon's Slaughterhouse, a haunted asylum, and Motel Hell, and just when you think you're safe, the creatures who lurk beside you will turn on you.

Tickets to Howl-O-Scream do not include daytime admission to the park, though guests can get into the park starting at 5 p.m.

VIP tickets are also available for personalized private tours or skip the line passes. 

Pass members and Fun Card holders can also get discounted pricing on tickets.
