This week Busch Gardens has promised to reveal some of “the 13” – the evil that will preside over Howl-O-Scream 2013 come Halloween season. Revealed by unlocking one of the chained doors on the event’s web site, the first of these diabolical baddies was named today as the Voodoo Queen.
Her name is Desiree Yanes and Busch Gardens has given her quite the story.
Desiree Yanes came home one night and found her husband with another woman. Enraged, she ran off and disappeared inside the dark swamplands of Louisiana. There, she crafted voodoo dolls and swore then to torment them…with unspeakably sadistic tortures. The Voodoo Queen continues to hide in the swamps of the bayou and perform her twisted Voodoo rituals for others seeking revenge.
And announced with the Voodoo Queen is a new haunted house for 2013: Death Water Bayou. Inside Ms. Yanes will mystically transform lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic while her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection.
But who are the rest of the “13”? Quick flashes at the end of the Voodoo Queen’s introduction video show a female doctor or nurse preparing a syringe as well as some kind of horned creature:
More shall be revealed from Howl-O-Scream 2013 very soon, leading up to opening night on September 27.
