Loved our trip to Busch Gardens. Lots of fun activities and shows. Very nice decor throughout was a pleasant surprise. Clean place with a friendly staff.
Our family enjoyed the Irish Fire Dance show.
I liked the Sky Tram that soars over the park giving beautiful views and helps you not walk your legs off.
Enjoyed seeing the wolf show, with the birds of prey too.
Fun day and good bbq place to eat too inside. Great day.

Would like to see another family roller coaster that isn’t too intense for my 10-12 year olds.

It was a slightly cold rainy and uncomfortable day but thankfully the weather cleared and there was no wait whatsoever. We had the best time ever getting to ride as much as we wanted. All of the staff was excellent. I was super pleased with my visit and I will definitely be paying another visit when I am up there again.

We came to Williamsburg for a quick preview of the park. We are looking forward to visiting in a couple months when we can spend more time and enjoy everything the park has to offer and it will be a little warmer.

We are season pass members and were invited to a preview day open only to pass members. We thought that would be great. We arrived and stood in a long, slow line at the ticket counter. The cashiers appeared to not exactly know what to do. We encountered the same problem when we ate lunch. The cashier took so long checking out the family in front of us (over 10 minutes) that our food was cold when we finally paid and sat down to eat. There were no shows open except for a cover band in the festhaus. It almost felt like Busch Gardens was using the pass members to train their employees this season prior to their official opening day (one week later). Very disappointing day. We had planned on staying until close at 8, but left at 2.
