Visited just for the roller coasters after staying in Orlando and was really impressed. The park has a nice selection of coasters all differ from each other. It made a nice change to get back to basics following the 3d rides of universal. Best of all the longest we waited was 40 min the majority of coasters had a 10... More

Verbolten (not sure of spelling) is my favorite coaster - with Griffon of course being... More

A good amusement park, is it a top ten, NO! Good rides, but spread out over a long distance. Plan to walk ALOT ALOT!!!! Food places VERY limited and VERY VERY costly. A family of five for a small lunch over $150.00 a bit steep. Some really great thrill rides like the Griffon, and Alpengiest, Avoid the Loch Ness unless... More

We are a family with 2 girls ages 13 & 15. We live in Ohio not far from Cedar Point and spend much time in amusement parks. In fact, we visit any amusement park which is near our travel destination on just about every trip we take. We have even made trips specifically to visit parks (like New Braunfels TX... More

Had a lot of fun at this park, plenty of attractions for all ages. Lines seemed to move fast and everybody was very friendly! Visited with wife and teenage son, they both enjoyed it as well.

Coming from Indiana where they love to build wooden coasters that beat you up, the coasters at Busch Gardens were awesome and smooth. Nice place to visit, employees were all friendly and helpful. The only complaint that I have would be the parking fee. I don't think that $15 to park is needed after paying $70 a person to get... More

Great time with my mother, sister and kids! Was plenty of fun for 3 year old as well as 17 year old! Loved the fact that were kiddie rides sprinkled throughout the park to entertain the little ones. Awesome rides and food!

I had a great time and was so happy I finally got to spend more than one day! We stayed for 3 days and the only downside was the first day it was really hot and I got a headache from the heat.

I had been to this Busch Gardens when I was a kid with my family, and I have also been to the Tampa location. This is my favorite. I love the European theme and different countries. They have stables with the Busch Clydesdale horses. The legendary Loch Ness Monster roller coaster is still fun. The Griffon was one of the... More
