We went to Busch Gardens Williamsburg this past week and I just wanted to post a mini-trip report.
It was very clean. I would say it was as clean as any amusement park that I have been to.
It is set in a beautiful setting. They have actually built the park around the beautiful natural setting inside of cutting down every tree in sight. The layout is somewhat similar to Hershey Park where the attractions are very compact.
The price to get in with $6 discount tickets was $46 for and adult and $38 for a kid which isn’t terrible. However kids are years 3 to 6. Since when did a 7 year old get to be an adult? :nonono2:
They have no clue how to move people. I do not think that they were really understaffed. I just think they have no idea how to move people efficiently like WDW does. My wife waited on line for ice cream on a line that was 20 people deep. That stinks but guess how long it took to get the ice cream? 50 minutes!!! That really sucks! The ride lines were long and just didn’t move.
The food in general was terrible. We ate at Octoberfest and it was only one grade better than dogfood. It was just terrible! :eek:
Overall, we had a nice day but I wouldn’t hurry back. As much as I tried not to compare it to WDW, it certainly made me long for the real thing!
