Halloween Fun near Richmond new homesHalloween is just around the corner and if you are looking for a scare, Busch Gardens’ Howl-O-Scream is the event for you. Located about an hour from our Richmond new home communities, this annual tradition is back and scarier than ever.

Beginning at 6 p.m., ghouls and haunts will come to life as Busch Gardens in Williamsburg transforms into Howl-O-Scream. New this year are the haunted Terror-tories™ which are four sections of the park, England, Germany, Italy and France, that have been transformed into haunted villages. In addition to the brand new Terror-tories™, this year’s Howl-O-Scream features five brand new restaurants and spirit bars including Blood Banquet™ in Germany, Buccaneer Galley in Festa Italia, Fight Feast™ in Ireland, Demon Drinks in France and Pirates Baarrrgh™ in Italy.

For thrill-seekers, many of the park’s rides and coasters will feature a special twist that will get your adrenaline pumping. Also, Howl-O-Scream will feature seven different haunted houses and shows throughout the day that include Dig It Up!, Fiends and Night Beats.

While Howl-O-Scream may be a little too frightening for the children, it is a great opportunity to enjoy some holiday thrills with your older children and friends. If you do have young children or grandchildren, Busch Gardens is still family-friendly throughout the day and will offer face painting booths where children can get transformed into their favorite Halloween character. Sesame Street characters will also be available for Halloween-themed photos.
