My family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed 2 days at Busch Gardens. We got a great deal from groupon for week long combo passes with Water Country USA. My two older sons and I (10, 8) are roller coaster enthusiasts. Here are my honest comments: - 6 "big" rollercoasters is a considerably smaller offering than Six Flags or King's Dominion. With...

Came here for 2 days in August and I've been before in cooler months. I definitely recommend them more than summer time. There is nowhere to go to cool down in the summer. All the eateries are outside and it's pretty miserable. I also had my infant, 3, and 8 yr old on this trip. The older two were ok... More

Fun for all ages. Great family environment with tons of adult thrills also. We recently moved here from another state and now hold season passes for our family of 5. The kids enjoy taking a friend and spending the entire day here.

If you love Rollercoasters than this park is definitely for you. There are 6 awesome Rollercoasters in addition to a bunch of other rides for thrill seekers. There are also games, shows and animal exhibits. We went during the week and there were absolutely no long lines. Saturday was a different story - it seems all the locals descend on... More

Only had a few hours before our flight out. Lines were long, they have a skip pass you can buy but can only be used once on certain rides so didn't buy it, will have to go back to hit the rides again

This amusement park has it all. Great rides, great food, and the setting was beautiful. The night ends with fireworks over the park. It is not cheap, but it is worth it.

I used to have season passes for me and my family, but we got bored after a few years of the same old thing. Came back yesterday for the first time after 3 years and was very impressed with all the new stuff and the level of caring and upkeep they put into this place. Now have passes back and... More

Good mixture of fast and wild rides and more gentle rides for children. It was very hot when we visited so one criticism would be that there is insufficient shade on may of the wait lines. There also seemed to very little advantage to the quick pass scheme. Also, far too many retail outlets and other attractions requiring additional payment.... More
