Islands of Adventure is planning to make the park creepy for Halloween as mutants take over Super Hero Island and Dinosaurs disturb guests in Jurassic Park. Down the street at Sea World, park planners have some thing in mind for the younger set, as does the cast of Disney's Magic Kingdom.

Can't wait for the day that Universal really pulls it all together and has a "mega-park" for HHN, extending throughout the whole USF/IoA/Citywalk complex....not expecting it anytime soon....well, maybe if NBC decides to sell off the parks to Bronfman....:)

I have yet to visit the Busch Gardens Halloween Event but I heard it was very good. Has anyone been to that one? Which one do you like better? I am just wondering because it will be hard for me to go to both (being a poor college student) but I do want to go to Busch's one year- BUT I don't want to miss Universal's. I heard the lines to get into the parking lot is even worse than that of a regular day - I once had to sit in an hour traffic just to go a couple miles from the highway- that is a major "con". I also have the passes to IOA/Universal, so HHN would not cost me...so you see why I have always picked HHN...? In any case, I can't wait!
You suck big time.
I’ve been to both Busch and Universal events. Last year, Busch’s Howl O Scream was voted #1 or 2 (I forget) haunted attraction by Haunt World magazine. It deserves to be on the list of the best. Check it out- it’s pretty cheap, particularly Freaky Preview weekend (Sept. 27).
I also attended both HHN and BGT Howl-O-Scream last year and thought that Busch hung right in there with Universal. The scare actors there in particular were very good. They did an excellent job of blending into their surroundings, including the person that jumped out of a TRASHCAN and scared the crap out of me! Also, I would think that if you had a Universal pass, you would only have to pay the same amount than as if you were upgrading a ticket from that day but maybe that isn't the case. That's what I'm going to have to do this year, so I guess I'll have to call them about that one.
G's! They're what's for dinner!
Thank you for the input! I will certainly check it (busch) out this year. I have heard a lot of great things about it. Thank you again!
