Female rocker “Sylvie” leads band My X as revealed icon for Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream 2010

in Busch Gardens, Events, Theme Parks

Details for the previously-hinted “rock and roll” theme of Howl-O-Scream 2010 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay have been revealed. This year’s theme surrounds a band called My X, fronted by female singer Sylvie (@SylvieMyX on Twitter).

The Howl-O-Scream web site has been updated to include a downloadable song by My X and plenty of band photos, like this one (and those above):

This year’s event icon (main character) is once again be female, following the trend set by past two years’ disturbed Raven Twins and vampire fashionista Ms. Vayne.

Today’s reveal began on Twitter by @HOSInsider, offering an initial glimpse at Sylvie:

That image was accompanied by the caption: “Looks like she’s got an ax to grind. HAH! Get it? Get it? Ax? Guitar?” Another image shows the mysterious female figure from behind, silhouetted against a light:

What’s still unclear is how exactly My X and Sylvie will turn sinister for the Halloween event. Sylvie’s Twitter profile offers a hint, via song lyrics:

There’s nothing sweeter than taking control.
Bow down and follow my rules.
Tempt me and you’re tempting fate.
You had the love now I got the hate.

Additional pictures seem to lead through a few run-down backstage areas of a concert, including large electrical throw switches, candles, and a practice or dressing room:

The images have been released under the guise that @HOSInsider “found” their photographer’s SD card and is posting some of the “discovered” images.

In addition to the rock theme and icon, it’s likely the Howl-O-Scream 2010 stage show will dive deep into the world of music, spanning several genres. Audition listings call for a variety of musicians, including:

  • African American male, athletic build, able to rap, baritone/tenor range
  • Youthful looking female, alto range, pop sound
  • Youthful looking male, tenor range, teen pop sound
  • Bette Midler type female, brash, strong belt, alto/soprano range, fiery personality
  • Eccentric, quirky, small frame female, pop sound, alto range
  • Ticketing information for Howl-O-Scream 2010 is available on their official web site.

      This is probably the worst and least “scary” theme i’ve ever heard for a haunted attraction.

        Well, they haven’t actually revealed how this will be scary yet. So far, it’s just a band. 😉 But I’m sure we’ll find out soon.

      I think it sounds pretty cool, the rock band theme is pretty sweet. I wonder how they’ll shake things up at Howl-O-Scream this year…
