If you love rollercoasters or like to see shows that is the place to go. The Loch Ness Monster is a bit too jerky for me, Alpengeist roller coaster is fun because your feet hang, Griffin wait for the drop!!! Verbolten has an extra surprise.

I live near Williamsburg so it is hard for locals to go and enjoy the park because there are way too many tourists. The park is very clean and spread out in a good way.

I travel all over for amusement parks and this is one of the best. The scenery itself is beautiful, but the rides are amazing. I love the themed lands as European countries and the addition of Sesame Street areas and characters add a lot for families with young ones.

we bought a pass for willaimsburg, busch gardens and the waterpark. it was a great day, it is a smaller and more manageable sized park compared to the tampa location. great selection of rides, VERY clean and easy to manoeuvre around in with kids. lockers onsite, fair enough food prices.

I spent many vacations at Busch Gardens as a child and teen. I have always loved it there and still do to this day as an adult. I have never had a bad experience. I would highly recommend a visit for coaster enthusiasts. It can get very crowded at times, but if you have patience you'll have fun... otherwise, pick... More

We went to Bush Gardens around Christmas in 2015. It was the most beautifully decorated place I have ever seen. We were lucky and the weather wasn't too bad considering the time of year. All the shows were wonderful and performers were great.
