Busch Garden never gets old. We have been visiting every few years,for the last twenty years and we still enjoy ourselves. We have taken our four sons and their friends,now our grandchildren and our own brothers and sisters as we are all becoming semi or fully retired and Busch Gardens is # 1 destination in all our books

“Good theme park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Busch Gardens is just like any other major park. Long lines and expensive everything. Lots of parking and not as crazy busy as other parks.

“Band, Beer and BBQ Event”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went here out of season (late Feb) and it coincided with the Band, Beer and BBQ event. For Brits it was like a CAMRA beer festival only with miniscule glasses, queues for tastings and therefore a long (and cold) wait for mild inebriation!
We sampled most of the rides and the queues were minimal owing to the slightly cooler than average weather. The biggest queues were for the Cheetah Hunt which was actually the ride I enjoyed most. What I don't recommend is doing the water-based rides wearing jeans in the winter; you do get wet and it will take ages to dry. We left early due to the ever increasing risk of hypothermia... brought on more rapidly by the mistaken theory that a ride on a roller coaster would act as a giant clothes drier!
