Located next to the park entrance of Busch Gardens Tampa, the seasonal Howl-O-Scream Shop Of Horrors usually makes its debut at the end of August, or beginning of September. The former store that occupied the location (Sahara Traders) closed a few weeks ago in order for the transformation into the Howl-O-Scream Shop Of Horrors to take place.
As noted above, The Howl-O-Scream Shop Of Horrors isn't for everybody. If you're easily disturbed by blood, gore & adult themes, we suggest you stay outside.
The main entryway to the shop is the area where guests can buy their tickets & upgrades for this years event. Also in this area of the shop, you can find various types of glasses & cups from last years event that are all on sale!
Now moving towards the center of the shop, the "Cursed" theme is starting to arise as several props used throughout the store resemble those used in this years Howl-O-Scream T.V spot.
By now you're probably wondering "Where's the 2014 "Cursed" merchandise?". Unfortunately, the "Cursed" merchandise hadn't arrived by the time we visited the shop. Rest assured, we spoke with shop worker Alessandra and she told us all of the 2014 merchandise should be arriving by the first week of September. Although the actual merchandise hadn't arrived yet, concept art for this year's T-Shirt designs were on display for guests to see. You can find some of this years T-Shirt designs in the area below.
The back part of the shop features Howl-O-Scream merchandise from the "Dark Side Of The Gardens" themed seasons.
