Busch Gardens to seek fan opinions to shape future Howl-O-Scream events via focus group

in Busch Gardens, Events, Theme Parks

A mere few hours after dropping a few hints about the theme for Howl-O-Scream 2011, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay announced they are looking for a few good fans to offer input that will shape the future of the annual Halloween event.

Via Facebook and their blog, Busch Gardens is asking for volunteers to join them for a two-hour in-person focus group to discuss all things Howl-O-Scream. Those interested must fill out a short application/survey, as Busch Gardens is looking for specific (though unspecified) types of people.

Questions on the survey include asking whether applicants have attended and/or worked for Howl-O-Scream and Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. Fans must also have no problem being subjected to “images that could be considered disturbing and graphic,” but nothing surprising given the gory nature of Howl-O-Scream.

Two focus groups will be held, both at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on Friday, March 18, one from 3 – 5pm and the other from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Accepted fans will also need to complete some sort of “homework assignment” prior to arriving. All those who participate discussion will be given two single-day tickets to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Selection notifications will be distributed by 5pm on, March 16, 2011.

With Howl-O-Scream 2011 still in the planning stages, this is any Halloween fan’s opportunity to shape one of the leading haunted events in Central Florida.
