Some speculation about this is going on over at Behind the Thrills...

Interesting...

Zombie christmas would work out good too considering it's their first year of christmastown too. Imagine all the creepy elves and santa claus stuff they could pull.

Howl-O-Scream 2012 - The Thirteenth Year

So far the park has announced two new houses, and that one of the scare zones will be a tribute to the past 12 years of HOS. They've also said that if 90,000 people like them on Facebook they'll reveal this year's Icon. GO LIKE THEM NOW! I WANT TO KNOW!

New commercial and Icon have been released for this year's event. I'm getting a very distinct feeling that I'm going to skip the hell out of it this year.

Tampa's times are until 1am on thursdays and 2am on friday and saturdays. was this the case last year? For some reason I thought they closed an hour earlier last year.

Seems like the commercial can be used for BGW too, another way to save money?

I like how they incorporated a key theme into the garden theme.

RE: Howl-O-Scream 2012 - The Thirteenth Year

It seems the past few seasons' HOS advertising for both BGT and BGW has been very poetic. Last year, it was the rhyming theme song, this year it's the zombie's lines about the key. Very creative,very creepy. I like it a lot.

Adding on to what Party Rocker said, I like the key theme aswell. It appears to me that they are alluding to the classic novel, "The Secret Garden", in a very twisted and eerie way.

Wow, so did anyone see the price increase for Alone?

1 person = $50
2 person = $60
3 person = $70
4 person = $80

It was up to 4 people for $40 last year. I planned on going to alone, but it is going to cost more than my ticket...

Anyone hear any info on the shows? They only mention fiends on the website. Fiends has replaced the midnight hour for fright feast, and Fiends moved into the desert grill now... Is Fiends really the only show?

I thought I posted Fiends was moving. Whoops. From what I hear another show will take its old locale but last I heard on it was a month ago.

There were talks about a month ago. I've been so wrapped around fiends in desert I haven't asked around anymore.

Went to BGT's HOS last night, and I would seriously go see their Fiends again and again - it had a few pop-culture references like Universal's Bill & Ted show, and definitely had something for everyone...
