Good To Know
This is one of the more appealing park on the east coast. I am an avid traveler and theme park enthusiast with being a roller coaster lover. The coasters are smooth, the park is clean and the experience is worth the trip.
This park is to die for. Absolutely blows Disney World out of the water in terms of rides and roller coasters. Honestly went on each roller coaster a minimum of three times in the field of two days. Amazing.

Had a blast! The characters were awesome and there was a surprise at every turn! Loved it. Would definitely go back!! Oh, and having the roller coasters going at night added an extra level of excitement to the evening.

Well my wife and I visited BG today and have a combined pass with Seaworld. The last time I went was nearly 30yrs ago and I was looking forward to the visit. It is nice to have the chance to see wild animals in captivity but I hate to see animals walking up and down in areas smaller than they normally have in the wild. The Tiger really looked unhappy, just walking back and forward and was clearly stressed. Not nice to see. Having said that some animals we saw on the train ride looked fine out in the open. Staff were mainly fine and very pleasant. Food in my opinion was average and all you could get was processed junk food. I never saw any fresh or healthier food for sale but it is the USA after all. The rides, which were open were great, hardly any queues and staff were fine. I was a bit disappointed that 3 rides were closed but that's life. The train ride around the park was very good. Overall I'd recommend Busch Gardens as nowhere is perfect.
