Love this park. Basically a zoo with roller coasters, when we went it was surprising quiet and got on any rides easily. The rides were all really good, the animal enclosures seem to have been well thought out and the keepers are out at various points in the day for Q&A. Lockers are 50c for hire and you can normally get on a couple of close rides in one use, which is a reasonable fee. Food was reasonably prices in comparison to other parks and was good although nothing special. Would definitely go back next time I'm in Florida though.

Howl-O-Scream 2012. Went last Saturday night, I did the Freight Feast beforehand- the food was average, not good- average. But it gets you in the houses at the front of the line from 7-830. That is worth it. As for the event, it was pretty scary, dont bring little kids, unless your kids are freaks, this would scare them, I saw quite a few little ones pretty traumatized. Anyway, the circus 3D was cool and the other houses were not disappointing. One thing, if you buy in advance, and you are looking for the true scary moment- get the special ticket for "Alone". Also, keep an eye on the bushes, trees, fog, and anything else that seems normal- you never know whats hiding in the park. Good luck.

Was a very nice clean park. The only disappointment was that it was hard to find Busch employee unless you were at a ride. There were some boys that were harassing the birds and a bird had his foot caught in a ball. There were no employees any where. Took us several minutes to find and then they acted like we were interupting them.
