  • One of the greatest things mankind has ever created! This place is timeless and magical. The themes vary depending on the seasons. Which is terrific. It feels very atmospheric and vibrant. I enjoy traversing through this fantastical world. The rides are worth the hype that they deserve. Fun for all ages.
  • Great fun for all ages. There is lots to do here. I came with my fiance in late August and at that time the lines were not bad at all, we did not have to wait long. In addition to many rides there are other fun activities such as wine tasting. Food here is good and it is well worth getting the tickets with food included so you can try lots of different places. Staff were all friendly and helpful and the park was overall quite clean and well cared for.
  • Busch Gardens is amazing. Our family had the time of our life. It was really really hot at the time and the park was virtually empty. We would only wait about 5 minutes for each ride. The performances were great and it's a tremendous part. We are from the West part of the United States and this amusement park is one of the best we've ever went to
  • This place was Great. They even paid for my parking!. Great rides, fun attractions and good food. They have it all, only thing I was missing was more time . I came on a Saturday and it was busy as expected almost all the rides had a 10min + waiting line but that was alright. My only complaint is that the quick passes are very cheated. I was in line for two rides and both of them I waited an hour to ride. while those with quick passes could not only choose before everyone else what seats they wanted, but also delayed the line for people waiting to be next. This was a tremendous issue with many and myself because we were riding in groups and if the quick passes chose our line of seats or didn't fit us in there then we had to wait until the next round. (mind you this happened multiple times before our group could get on). Nevertheless, if you are planning to go here spending the extra cash in a quick pass will be worth it in the end, so don't hesitate and make the same mistake I did because if not you might be spending more than an hour on a ride that last less than 1 minute. Thank you! P.S Buy tickets online, it's way cheaper and much faster.
  • Great family park. Staff was helpful. Food was good. Rides for kids of all ages!! It was a holiday weekend so the lines were a little long but moved quickly. We'll definitely go back again.
