This was my first visit since 1999, and it was better than I remembered. My children are ages 15, 13, 5 and 3, and we all had a blast visiting Busch Gardens as a Labor day weekend day trip! I really like how the park is laid out with rides to entertain the little ones next to every major "big... More

The water area is child friendly. My children love it. Oh for a longer summer to spend more time here! The cold- weather activities are not as thrilling as a wave to a kid.

Once inside we had a great time. Beautifully decorated and very festive. My issue is with the entrance and the charge for parking. The $15 isn't the issue, its the time it takes to get thru the toll/gate. If you added $5 or $10 dollars to each ticket price you would still get the same and even more money because... More

I've been to Busch Gardens more times that I can count (back when they used to given Eagles snacks out as you were leaving the park) and I cannot express how impressed I was with the Christmas Town setup. I thought maybe a country or two would open, but most of the park was and the decorations were out of... More

This was our second visit to Christmas Town and it was way better than our last visit. Their decorations are phenomenal and the rides (of course) are great. Given the mild weather this season, I wish they had a few more coasters open, but Verbolten was wonderful and there was NO line. We rode it like 4 times in a... More

$15 for parking, plus entry admission, many rides not working, shows overbooked, not enough staff for lousy food.

A great outing for the family, for a couple or just a leisure time with friends. The park is suited in millions of little lights and Christmas trees. You will not only enjoy the sights of the park, but the sounds and smells of delicious food. It's a festive way to spend at least 5 hours, but you won't want... More

Had an amazing first time visit to Busch gardens Williamsburg this past December! Visited after Christmas; the Christmas town event was still going on through New Year's Day, open daily from 2pm-10pm. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Each "country" was decorated beautifully and represented each country very well- everything was covered in lights - absolutely beautiful! We... More

Was beautifully decorated for Christmas but park was so overcrowded, we left early. Food was sub par and way over priced as usual. Checked it off the list but will prob not return to Christmas town. The fact that ticket is only good for specified date was less than desirable for my situation
