New for 2015: BUSCH GARDENS® CHRISTMAS TOWN™ ICE SHOW
World-champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Elvis Stojko will headline a new holiday-themed ice show at this year’s Busch Gardens® Christmas Town™. ‘Twas That Night™ is an all-new live performance on ice being created by the same creative team that produced London Rocks™ and Scrooge No More!.™
‘Twas That Night is based on the popular poem A Visit From St. Nicholas, published in 1823 by Clement Moore, and will be performed at Busch Gardens’ Royal Palace Theatre. Busch Gardens’ entertainment team will transform the theater’s stage into a glistening frozen pond, creating a nostalgic sense of wonderment during the retelling of this popular Christmas classic.
“Busch Gardens’ newest live show combines the grace of professional figure skating with cherished Christmas music, original holiday songs and magnificent visuals,” said Entertainment Director Bonnie Gilliland. “Elvis Stojko’s masterful skating techniques and his unbounded creativity are helping us produce an emotionally-charged show that is unlike anything else in our lineup.”

"Wasted Day!"
December, 2015
We normally love Busch Gardens and have been going there for 40 years, but Sunday, December 6th at Christmas Town was awful! We got to the Busch Gardens exit off of 64 East only to move an inch at a time for over an hour! That's after we had traveled 45 minutes from Mechanicsville. Busch was apparently not prepared for the crowds on this day! The reason you only moved an inch at a time was they only had one person taking parking money for two lanes of traffic. They should have had at least two people to keep the lines moving. After inching along for over an hour, we were then sent across the street to park in Scotland, where we spent another 1/2 hour or more to get a tram to take us to the park If we hadn't promised our 3 year granddaughter we were going, we would have turned around! We could not enjoy anything at the park! It was so crowded and not well lit in many places. We couldn't use our meal tickets to eat since they restaurants were so busy so we all went without food while we were there. The grandkids didn't get to ride many rides as there were only a few rides in each country and it was difficult to motivate from country to country with all the people. Alothough the lights were great in most places, you couldn't stop to enjoy as the paths were like herding cattle and you would be run over. Busch should have ample staff taking parking money, lights on all pathways, more trams for the parking areas and most of all, DONT BE SO GREEDY and LIMIT how many people you let in the park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tip: Plan for lots of waiting!

Best amusement park I've ever been to. We bought a 7 day pass for Busch Gardens and Water Country and used them to the max. The kids had a great time and it was a great experience.

We love the various "nation" areas and rides. The park itself really is beautiful, and it respects and foregrounds the natural terrain. Love the way many of the coasters, like the venerable but still wonderful Loch Ness Monster, are incorporated into the landscape and topography. Meeting Clydesdales is always a thrill. As a Floridian, I hate to admit that I probably prefer this Busch Gardens to the one in Tampa, though we love both.

We spent 2.5 days at the park and had such a great time. When went it wasn't too busy which was nice. If you bring your water bottles from home the quick service stores (that serve fountain sodas) will fill your bottles for free which is a great perk and a money saver. We enjoyed eating at the Marco Polo restaurants since there was something for everyone. The majority of people that work there are friendly....we met Brent who we saw everyday we were there and he was very friendly and played around with our little girl which we fun.

A great park to visit! I personally do not like roller coasters, but that does not hold me back from having a great time! My family rides the coasters, and I enjoy other rides, as well as the shows, food, animals, and beauty of the park. This was my second visit this year!

Love the rides. The coasters and better rides are about 1/4 mile apart so bring your walking shoes. But plenty of trees and worth the money we purchased a week pass to water country & the park and we used it everyday. My kids loved it. Water park in the morning Bush Gardens at night.
