Guests will have "no place to hide" at Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Howl-O-Scream 2010, according to the park's official teaser video for the Halloween event.

The tagline for this year's Howl-O-Scream is "The Scare is Everywhere", reflecting Busch Gardens' plans to blanket the entire park in one giant "scare zone". This is likely to mean that live actors will roam all areas of the park, ready to terrorize guests. However, specific themes will still apply in each of the park's hamlets, with a total of seven horror mazes, four shows and four minor attractions completing the line-up.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg fansite BGWFans.com is collating details of Howl-O-Scream 2010 on its wiki, including the planned themes for different areas of the park. England will play host to a Victorian funeral, The Wild Reserve will be infested by spiders, Festhaus Park will host "The Field of Screams", Italy will be home to "Bewitched & Bewildered" (which is likely to feature a witchcraft theme) and a path beside Escape to Pompeii will be dubbed "Pathway of the Ancients" and overrun by mummies. For children, the Sesame Street Forest of Fun will be home to "The Lighter Side of Halloween".
