"Wasted Day!"
Reviewed 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!

We visited over the Christmas holiday this year. The park was decorated with a ton of lights and was quite a sight! The wandering carolers were very entertaining and since it was so warm it was pleasant to sit and watch them. We also enjoyed Gloria! (a cant miss show). I would definitely visit again at Christmas time.

"Worth it!"

I love Busch Gardens! Yes, there are sometimes long lines..but I mean c'mon now- its a amusement park, what do you expect? I recommend either going while school is in session or else arriving early in the morning to get the best bang for your buck. Once you ride a few rides (the Verbolten is my favorite!) head on over to Das Festhaus (its in Germany) for a live show and some food! Trust me, you will thank me. You cant miss the other roller coasters either, they are all so much fun. There is lots of stuff for the little ones too. If you plan on going atleast 2 times in a year, just buy a year pass. Its cheaper and you'll be able to go anytime you want.
