Hey guys, I'll be making my first ever trip to Howl-O-Scream to kickstart my haunt weekend in Florida tomorrow morning. I'm about to buy my tickets and was strongly considering the Fright Feast considering all of the great things I've heard about it here and elsewhere - but I had a couple questions for those of you who've done it before. On the official website it says checkin begins at 5:45. Where is check-in, at the front gates? Is prior Busch Gardens admission required? On a semi-related side note, is there a drop off zone at Busch Gardens like at Universal? (I'm planning on getting a ride from a friend and won't require parking.) Also, I know you get released 30 minutes early, and the show takes place at the Desert Grill (I'm familiar with the park layout, been to Busch in normal hours many times) - what houses are open early? I know Zombie Mortuary is right by the restaurant, just wanted to clarify. Any battle strategies that have worked for you guys in the past? Thanks for any insight, I'm really excited to see something new before hitting up Halloween Horror Nights Friday-Sunday.
