This past weekend I experienced Alone for the first time. Alone was introduced to Howl-O-Scream last year as a revolutionary idea to the haunt industry. Just like the title suggests, for an up-charge you can experience the haunted house alone, all by yourself, or with up to 4 friends.
While I am not going to give away any spoilers, I have to say that this house will mess with your mind! The storyline is that the deranged Master Alexander Daedal opened Minotaur Storage to house his vast collection of “cultural” remains. Now his sinister obsession with hoarding has expanded to stockpiling people. But "Don't Touch Anything!". Escape this lunatic’s labyrinth or you will become part of his collection.
Be sure to look for lots of props from Howl-O-Scream's past featured throughout this house. Now for what everyone is wanting to know... Is it worth it? In my opinion, 100% yes! For any haunt fan this is a truly unique and personal experience you just can't get anywhere else. While it hasn't been confirmed by the park yet, Alone in some form is most likely to return for 2012. Last year and this year, Alone sold out each and every night so you should book it the day tickets go on sale! It is honestly the best houses I have ever been it at Howl-O-Scream or anywhere for that matter! Thanks to Busch Gardens Tampa for the photos.
