This was a wonderful day out. We all had great fun and rode almost every ride. It helped that the park wasn't too full, I'm sure. I was disappointed at all the extra costs. If it weren't for 'Hero' passes we couldn't have afforded this!

First, I want to thank Busch Gardens on their program Waves of Honor. We are an active duty military family who received free tickets. We had a wonderful day! We are a family of four with two sons ages 8 and 10. Boy did they love the roller coasters especially the Griffon and Alpengeist! Park was immaculate, even rest rooms,... More

We had a great time here. Weather was perfect. It was a little crowded so we did have to wait in lines to ride the rides. We spent an entire day at the park but didn't see everything that we wanted to. Would plan on arriving earlier next time or more than one day. Lots of fun though!

Okay, I'll agree that Busch Gardens is a very beautiful park, with lots of shows, a good amount of rides and several great coasters. The staff were friendly but often were uninformed by management to be able to answer guests questions. This happened on several occasions when asking staff if a particular show was still be putting on, or was... More

Way too commercialized. Set up was weird. I feel bad for people in wheelchairs or scooters as it is not disability friendly.

This is one of the best parks! Very clean and the wait times for the rides are really short. The shows are all fun and there are lots of food choices.

If you like roller coasters this is the place for you. We went on a Tuesday in the middle of August and there were no lines at all. We rode every coaster at least twice and they were great. Only complaint is the signage and layout of the park was confusing at times, but we figured it out quickly.

My family are coaster junkies, so we try and stop at new ones whenever we get a chance. We had a group of 11 with us, 13-52 and everyone rode the coasters. My first piece of advice is to buy the 7 day flex pass for BG and WC USA if you going to be around for more than a... More

I took the kids there on our family vacation on the way back from the Outer Banks and was disappointed. Maybe I missed something but there are really not that many rides except for the four roller coasters which are impressive but I am not a coaster guy-my daughter is and this trip was for her. The youngest enjoyed the... More
