It may be a little early to speculate and everybody being in the Christmas spirit but Christmas Town has a 2011 thread so why not Howl-O-Scream 2011?

All news, rumors, new attractions, etc. can be posted here about Howl-O-Scream 2011. Will Scare is Everywhere be expanded or trashed? Will some of the shows return? What new mazes will there be? Start speculating here and you may just find out soon. Winking

I need a better signature...

The scare is everywhere is probably going... Too many complaints by DA parents with children. Some of the post I read on Busch's wall during that event disgusted me. People who believe the park should cater only to their children and not be scary for them, but fun and everyone else should just be SOL because "Their children have a ticket too, so they should get to stay the whole time" It's effing ridiculous... They need to do something SERIOUS about this. Go one way or the other. Be family friendly or TRULY put the scare everywhere... Not the lame attempt we saw this year... there was nothing truly terrifying walking through any of the "scare areas" and this is coming from a someone with mild arachnophobia... I dont think anyone got scared there... Only places I REALLY saw people getting scared were the random loudspeaker shrieks and the chainsaws. Every now and then a slider would get someone and the Gillie suits...

Well I agree with most of your post, I don't with this. Having been there everynight I saw MORE people running scared than those not. What one may not see as scary someone else might be terrified.

I think they need to do what MOST other parks do, tell parents that Howl-O-Scream is a PG-13 event and that if you have little kids they recommend that you leave the park (not make you leave but recommend it), this might also help out with the capacity problem, which I do not think Busch cared about because it got them alot more money. With little kids and their families at the park it makes it more crowded, so if the kids and thier families leave the park will be less crowded. Also if you are going to market a Halloween event as good as "The Scare Is Everywhere" than you need to live up to that. "The Scare Is Everywhere" is probably one of the best marketing slogans that I have ever seen, but if "The Scare Is Every Once In A While If You Get Lucky" than it kind of gets you all excieted for nothing.

I think another problem was that the forest of fun and land of the dragons closed around 8 so if parents did have little kids past that time were pretty much on their own they should atleast leave those open the whole time for those parents and their little kiddies who don't want to be scared but yet want to have a fun time

Being as they reached capacity on three Saturdays in a row. I wouldn't expect any major changes. ("We did the best we could possibly do with attendance, but...how can we do more?") Tongue

Expand the park to hold more and expand the parking lot. Hopefully this oktoberfest expasion will cut the capacity a bit.

I don't know how many of you saw the Behind the Thrills post today but there was some interesting information/rumors up there about Howl-o-scream 2011. There is a possibility that BGT will not be doing HOS. Or at least not the way it has been. There's talk of it not being a separate ticketed event and being more family friendly. Conversely, there is also talk of BGW changing HOS to be a ticketed event and more intense. These are just rumors right now, But interesting nonetheless.

sorry!

I was wondering why you put that link up until I got to the very bottom of the post. Disconcerting for people that are hoping the park would step up the scares. If anything it sounds like it will be reverting back to more family friendly than this season was. Obviously that rumor is about Tampa, but it would make sense that BGW would follow suit.

Sounds like a Blackstone cost cutting measure. They may be ceding Halloween to the Orlando parks.

Well this is interesting.....I doubt BGW would follow suit. HOS at BGW isn't a separate ticketed event and is in an entirely different market for things like this to apply to us even when the sister park is dealing with this issue. HOS at BGW is just too successful for it to be a cost cutting measure when in my eyes it makes money.
