The park boasts more than 350 acres of thrills, from crazy coasters to stage shows to culinary delights, the whole family will enjoy fun-filled adventure at Busch Gardens!
Voted America’s Most Beautiful Theme Park for more than twenty-one years in a row, the park has over 50 rides and attractions, ranging in excitement from a 210-foot plunge on Apollo’s Chariot for the thrill-seekers, to “KIDsiderate” rides and shows to entertain the little kiddies and those that prefer to keep their feet on the ground.
In between rides and live performances, you can enjoy shopping for European treasures and authentic European fare at several themed restaurants throughout the park! After your busy day, take in one of the park’s main stage and Broadway-style shows.
In 2012, Busch Gardens Williamsburg opened the Verbolten, a family-friendly coaster with a super smooth ride with a series of high-speed twists and turns. The world’s tallest dive coaster, the Griffon also calls Busch Gardens home, as well the Alpengeist – one of the tallest, fastest coasters in the world! For the little ones, the “Kidsiderate” attraction hosts a slew of Sesame Street characters and family-friendly rides. Also, animals and humans come together to entertain with shows and exhibits, along with “Up-Close Tours,” that educate audiences about everything from training wolves to birds of prey.
