Snacks/Busch Gardens

Can I take a backpack with snacks and juice boxes for my kids inside BG? Do they search backpacks? Thanks!

If they do let you bring them in freeze the juice boxes (capri suns work better) and they will stay cold longer. Sea World has gotten very strick about backbacks, coolers, etc. I'm not sure about BG

I'm going this weekend. I will report back as to how strict their back pack searching is.

Hello traveln,

I was just at BG yesterday. They do search your backpacks before entering the park but as long as you don't have any glass containers or alcohol, it's ok to bring in snacks and drinks. The only problem is carrying it around all day. If you will have a stroller, then its ok but lockers can get expensive. I say this because it's $.50 per use. Once you open the locker, you have to put in two more quarters to lock it back up. This is how all the lockers by the roller costers were. I'm sorry I didn't check the main lockers by the entrance.

I hope you have a great time at the park
