We go to Busch Gardens Williamsburg every year at least once during HalloScream, and there are signs everywhere that no costumes are allowed. I've seen many people turned away who were in costume.
Wonder why they don't have it well posted in Tampa?
Costumes are never allowed at these type of events, for the reason noted: you couldn't tell the difference between guests and employees. The family should have known better, or better yet, just checked before going to all that trouble.
Pray tell - "those types of events"?
Costumes are encouraged at Disney's Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, at Cedar Point's Halloweekends, and even at Universal's Horror Nights.
A family who has been to any of those parks' Halloween offerings might very well be confused to find out that they were not allowed to go in costume to Busch Gardens.
Costumes are NOT allowed at Halloween Horror Nights.I also just looked up Cedar Point's event and they don't appear to not allow them but they clearly state they prefer you leave your costume at home.
I'll second the fact that Halloween Horror Nights doesn't allow costumes (and I should know...been there 10 times already this season), but the idiots in question at Busch were NOT at Howl-O-Scream anyway. The news got it wrong, and I have that directly from the Busch PR person. They were there during the day, during regular park hours.
It's phrased as a request, but it's not a request. Only kids under 54", and generally only during the costume contest at the Iron Dragon Stage. Adults don't wear costumes at CP's Halloween event. From the HW guide:
If they can read English there should be NO confusion. There are signs posted at Busch Gardens in Tampa (we were just there) AND their tickets clearly state that NO costumes of any type are ever allowed.
Technically they couldn't have been "kicked out" as the would not have been allowed in unless they smuggled their costumes in and changed in the bathroom.
You just can't fix stupid .
My question----why would you dress up in halloween costumes in the middle of October on a hot day if it isn't even Halloween yet and you aren't going to a children's party with the kids? Publicity-their 15 minutes of fame maybe.
BG was right, but they should have been stopped at the gate and told the rules verbally if they went in wearing the costumes. Nothing has been said officially about whether they came in wearing them or changed into them at some point. As a manager I would be checking the tapes for that day. Offering the family their money back after they were in the park for almost all day was a good thing. The family refused? Why? The tickets could have been used any time in the future and they lived only an hour or 2 away if I remember correctly. Who took it to the paper? Bingo...... claim to fame....
Well I guess you can say they are different events and the fact costumes are alloweed, but couldn't you say the same thing about guests who attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party before Halloween.
