^ That is some cool information. I had no idea we would get flashlights for one of the houses. I'm getting really excited for my trip now.

Does anyone know on the preview night for HOS, if there is anything I will miss? I mean I understand the actors may not be up to par yet since it will be the first weekend.

The lines. I went twice last year, Freaky Preview Sept. 23 (Friday) and TPR's Busch Bash Oct 22 (Saturday). The lines were terrible in October, while in September, my girlfriend and I walked into every house. I also had better timing with the walking hoards in Sept. than in Oct, maybe due to the lack of people so they were able to move around more.

I mean I understand the actors may not be up to par yet since it will be the first weekend.


This is not always true. They were great both dates and I would have gone back a third time I had the money! Can't wait for my visit this year. =)

In preparation for mine and Renee's upcoming shoot on Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's Howl-O-Scream's new-and-improved HD Scream Cam, the park has sent us a video giving us some back story on the house we'll be exploring, Blood Asylum. Make sure to watch carefully--you might recognize the familiar face of someone very important to Howl-O-Scream in Tampa!

For those of you that aren't familiar with Busch Gardens' Scream Cam, I've attached our video from the one I did two years ago in the My X Rocks house.

^Awesome videos. I can't wait for my trip to HOS this Friday.

I can't help but think Blood Asylum is going to be even scarier then My X Rocks house. So it will be great to see both of your reactions in the scream cam.

One of my coworkers is a tech at HOS this year, and he said he walked through Blood Asylum with all the sound and lighting, no actors, and he said he was scared to death! So it should be even better when all the crazies are in there too. :)

Earlier this morning Renee had the chance to experience the terror I felt two years ago (see last page for more info) by walking through one of the newest houses at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's Howl-O-Scream, all while being recorded by the incredibly fun Scream Cam, now in HD.

Once again hosted by the mastermind behind Howl-O-Scream, Scott Swenson led Renee into the entryway of the Blood Asylum, a new house themed to an insane asylum that has become home to the deranged Creature, a serial killer with a penchant for wearing his victims' faces after he murders them.

First, let's share the backstory on the Oglethorpe Asylum...

Let's see if Renee survived...

This doesn't look ominous at all...

This isn't helping!

An exciting aspect of this new house is the introduction of a heavily themed queue!

There's definitely a backstory to this house.

Time to get suited up!

And we can happily say, he really gets into character!

These residents definitely deserve to be here!

It looks like Renee made a friend!

Renee was caught off guard by this one!

Quite a shocking encounter!

Leaving so soon?
Screen Shot 2012-09-20 at 9.35.05 AM.jpg
I think not!

No time for basketball Dr. Jones!

There are some really creative spook-spots in the house!
Screen Shot 2012-09-20 at 9.36.57 AM.jpg
I'd say this was a successful Scream Cam experience, wouldn't you?
Screen Shot 2012-09-20 at 9.37.42 AM.jpg
Tears are a sign of success for sure!

Renee survived the Blood Asylum (barely)!

This was another amazing experience courtesy of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! We can't wait to come back to check out the full event this year... And with the Trickster's key in hand, getting back into the Dark Side of the Gardens looks awfully tempting!

^ If you are using Chrome you have to install the WMP Extension. I had to as well.

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

I'm just downloading it, depends on your download speeds of course if that's a good idea for you haha. If not just try and wait for it to buffer.

Great stuff guys! Can't wait to check it out on Saturday.
