July 18-23 2014 I just returned from vacation and I really enjoyed Busch Gardens and a Water Country. I vacationed with friends and my 7 and 8 year old kids. We purchased the 7 day bounce pass and we enjoyed both parks daily. Best bang for your buck!!

My husband and I visited for a conference in town and were looiking for something to do during the evening. We found Busch Gardens through a flyer (surprised to see them out of state!). What really caught my eye though was the absolutely AWESOME christmas display they had going on.

We wanted to visit Busch Gardens on our way home on a rode trip. We happened to have our two dogs with us. We chose to board the dogs for a day at the in park kennel for 20 dollars per dog(pretty reasonably priced for being at the park) I was happily surprised when we were walked to the back... More

We love BG because my daughter (20yrs) and I are thrill seekers and my wife is not. They have great coasters and rides for the thrill seekers and entertaining shows. I went to shows with my wife because she does not ride. I have to admit I enjoyed everyone of them. London Rocks, Entwined, old stand by Oktoberfest and my... More

My last visit to Busch Gardens was about 5 years ago. This was my first trip since the change in owners. We enjoyed it but you can tell the small details are being missed. London Rocks is the worst theme park show I have ever seen! I expect way better from Busch Gardens, the only part we enjoyed was the... More

I took my 10 and 16 year old girls to Busch Gardens recently and we were not disappointed. I haven't been since college and did not remember how beautiful a park it was. My daughters love Carowinds in NC and roller coasters and so we wanted to check out the rides especially. Although they only had 5 coasters, they were... More

Although a bit pricey, the park was extremely clean, and had great shows and rides. I was surprised by the quality of shows. It almost felt like I was at a Disney park at times. The park itself was beautiful and incredibly well maintained. There were amazing thrill rides as well as rides for the less adventurous. The staff was... More

I loved the relaxed atmosphere here compared to other amusements parks. Lots of trees that keep the sun and heat at bay. The shows were great, esp their new show, London Rocks, saw this twice. Recommend the meal deal ticket for 24 dollars a person. Tickets gets you two complete meals, lunch and dinner, and two drinks. Enough food ,... More

What can I say? It's Busch Gardens! Beautiful scenery, fun rides, clean atmosphere, friendly staff, etc. Be ready to walk a lot, get wet, be hot and just a little queasy from some of the crazy dips & turns. Wear shoes that can get wet, shorts or capris that dry quickly, bring sunscreen and you should be fine. Plan ahead... More

Park is immaculately clean, food is pricey, but what amusement park isn't. Five great roller coasters and tasty beer and pretzels. Lines were actually really not bad, Monday on a cloudy day might have something to do with that. Definitely recommend!
