  • There are a few reasons why I didn't rate higher. One - I love amusement parks and rides. I was somewhat disappointed in the area of rides. Two - Since some rides were closed due to the time of year, ...  read more »
  • Had a great visit mid-October riding roller coasters. Not crowded at all during the day. As 6pm approached, the crowds picked up significantly for Halloscream. If you have younger kids, you really sho...  read more »

  • Was pleasantly surprised with our day at Busch Gardens. Even on a Friday in the summer, lines were not long at all (we waited no more than 20 minutes for any attraction) and the roller coasters and atmosphere were on par with the best theme/amusement parks I've been to. We didn't go with small children and really enjoyed the big coasters. If you are going with children there are a couple kid specific parts of the park. We were able to do everything we wanted and go on some rides multiple times!
  • So much to explore. Something for everyone. Season pass a must. Hallowscream. Christmas town. Shows and more. Lots of walking. Buy refillable cups. Have fun!!
  • Wonderful theme park for the entire family. Great adult drink choices. Plenty for young kids to do. Food and wine festival time is amazing. Roller coasters are all thrilling, with favorites being Verbolten and Griffin. Local tip: avoid core summer weekends (when local kids are out of school) and major holidays/holiday weekends. Also the turkey sandwich on pretzel (in "Germany") is probably one of my all-time favorite sandwiches.
  • Beautiful park! My toddlers gad a great time in the Sesame Street area, especially the water park splash pad area (it was hot). Many other rides for young and old kids alike! Wife and I enjoyed the beer in "Germany!" Would definitely return.
  • A lot of great rides. Almost as good as Cedar Point. Weather forecast was iffy, so the crowd was very small. Almost no wait on all of the rides. Food options and country themes are neat. Ate at the German area and the food was fairly decent for a theme park.
