  • Not that great! It was crowded, the lines were long and there aren't a ton of rides for the little ones. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. If you're into beer and sausages, you'll enjoy this place.  more »
  • We were very close to Christmas and we were delighted with the lighting. I don't think I've ever seen something so beautiful! In each section there were lights of different colors. I wasn't too focused on toys because I knew the Busch Gardens of Tampa? We are with children and grandchildren and we enjoyed a lot!

  • Busch Gardens is an ok amusement park. My children tend to have a better time than I do. Some of the rides are a bit dated. I also feel like everything is overpriced.  more »

  • Christmas Eve at Busch Gardens was Beautiful and Enchanting!! We had a wonderful time. This park is always so clean and the people were so kind and helpful. We were SO IMPRESSED with the imagination, planning, and work that went into decorating the entire park. It was magical. If you haven't seen Christmas at this park you need to go. You will NOT be disappointed.
  • Christmas at Busch Gardens When it got dark all the lights on the trees and the buildings and the decorations were exceptionally brilliant. While riding in the Sky Lift You Could See down in the valleys and the rivers with all the reflections and I hate to say it but it was absolutely amazing. The new face with the holiday feeling had to take a lot of time and effort to put up. The end result was better than a picture you could paint. All three generations of our family enjoy this immensely. Smiles and wonderment where the best way to describe this outing.
  • This was my second annual visit. I was there for Christmas Town shows, carolers, food and hot chocolate. Cafe seating chilly but a warmer dinning tent made the experience pleasant. Holiday lights beautiful produce a magical feel. Staff and guests very friendly. Family friendly but temperatures can be chilling. Dress appropriately.
  • Christmas Town 2017 was beautiful! My family especially enjoyed the shows Gloria and Scrooge No More. The hot chocolate and hot candied pecans/ cashews are perfect to warm up in the cold weather. We have been pass members for many years. Christmas Town is a highly anticipated family tradition. We especially appreciate the new ticket structure, which seems to have improved crowd control compared to previous years. And we love the selection of seasonal items and vendors. We did some Christmas gift shopping this year. And we always pick out new ornaments for our tree. If you want the epitome of Christmas Spirit and Cheer, go to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens!
  • Wonderful, amazing and beautiful , we drove 7 hrs and it was worth it. 5 nights for about $1,000 for 4 people 2 -A 2 -K its a great deal!! ITS THEME PARKS AND LOCAL TOWN AND PARKS OFFER enough sightseeing and thrills. Go shopping u can get deals!!! Local red roof inn is a great hotel choice
