Busch Gardens Hiring “Scare Squad” For Howl-O-Scream

JAMES CITY-Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s popular Halloween event, Howl-O-Scream, returns this year on select nights from September 12 through October 31. To prepare for the event, the theme park is hiring a “Scare Squad” to help entertain guests throughout the park.

Busch Gardens is looking for enthusiastic performers who love Halloween and scaring others to add to the fun and excitement of Howl-O-Scream. The “Scare Squad” involves dressing up as characters like zombies, witches, and werewolves, and scaring visitors in one of Howl-O-Scream’s haunts and scare zones.

Interested individuals must be available for all scheduled event dates, be able to work long shifts with repetitive movement and vocalizations, and be comfortable wearing masks or make-up as well as working in dark conditions. Experience is not required, though be prepared to perform with passion and ready to scare. Starting hourly rate is $15.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
