As you may or may not know, Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s 14th Howl-O-Scream event starts tomorrow but, fortunately, tonight we have one final construction update for you all to check out before the official debut. Now, because there’s not really much to say that hasn’t been said already, the vast majority of this post will be solely pictures. Enjoy!


A fair amount of progress has been made since our last update on the four Terror-tories around the park.

Ripper Row

Ripper Row definitely has the best facades, but I’m not sure how it’s all going to come together in the end. The new facades clash fairly badly with the existing hamlet’s buildings. Hopefully something can be done to rectify that.


Ports of Skull

Ports of Skull isn’t looking all that shabby but, perhaps for a pirate-themed area that’s not a good thing. Everything looks a bit too fresh and new if you ask me. Hopefully we’ll see that change a bit when we check out the final product tomorrow.


Vampire Point

They painted The Willkommenhaus grey. I do not approve. Not at all.


Demon Street

I hate to say it but Demon Street isn’t looking very demonic. The comparisons to a Hot Wheels-themed children’s birthday party are all over our forum right now. I can’t say I disagree.



Because of the announcement, not much had been done to Das Festhaus in the way of Howl-O-Scream decoration and there wasn’t much to see at the Abbey Stone either sadly. Fortunately though, plenty has happened over in San Marco with Dig it Up.

Dig it Up

Dig it Up’s set seems to be more or less complete. As expected, the giant T-Rex has once again returned to his position center-stage.


Other Areas

Though the park’s four Terror-tories are getting everyone’s attention this year, the park is continuing to theme the rest of their hamlets as well.

New France

Once again it seems that New France has been overrun with spiders.


Wild Reserve

The ghosts have returned to the Wild Reserve this year and they’re looking just as spooky and ghastly as ever.



Not much is happening here, but there’s a few shots worth sharing.

As I stated at the beginning, the event begins tomorrow so expect some of our member’s first thoughts and opinions to show up on our forum sometime tomorrow night. Additionally, feel free to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to keep up to date as the first official coverage begins to show up!
