Busch Gardens VA
This is me and my lovely three children. I recently went to Busch Gardens® in Williamsburg. I was surprised that it had so much to offer for my young children. We often go to theme parks and the rides aren’t meant for them. I find myself apologizing to the oldest or the younger children for the day out. I found Busch Gardens® VA to have activities that the family could do together and rides that my oldest and my younger children could enjoy together.
I like that I was able to get the tickets for my younger children for free. They have this great preschool program where the kids get in for free with a valid birth certificate if they are 5 or younger. I was excited because now I only need to buy my older child’s pass and mine. I printed our pass online and then I showed them to the gate attendant and she checked us in. I did have to go to the ticket counter to confirm birth certificates for the younger ones. We got into the park and it was very clean.
I liked the different feel of the countries. I also liked that I could travel by foot, train, or by the sky to get to the location of my desire. we spent most of our day on foot. We couldn’t help but take advantage of the water features. It was 90 degrees! We loved that the lines were short and action packed. I have never heard my kids laugh so hard. They were really having a great time.
We went to the all you can eat pizza buffet which was a hit for everyone. I can say that I would do that again. I would also buy a refill cup. It is well worth the investment and the cup is great to keep. I liked that you could link your credit card to your wristband and that the food choices were plentiful and reasonably priced.
I am not sure how we did it but we closed the park down. That means we didn’t want to leave until they closed. The kids found so many new things to try. I was really pleased with our day. I would consider going again this season because it really was something my children will talk about for the rest of the summer.
Bring everyone to Busch Gardens® VA as you can tell it is a place for all generations!
