Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a theme park located in James City County, Virginia about 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Williamsburg. It opened on May 16, 1975, adjacent to the local Anheuser Busch brewery and other related AB developments including the Kingsmill Resort complex. The park is themed around the history and culture of old world Europe. In the early 1990s the park was renamed Busch Gardens Williamsburg. In 2006, the name was changed to Busch Gardens Europe, to once again reflect the European theme. Similarly, Busch Gardens Tampa was renamed to Busch Gardens Africa at the start of the 2006 season. Starting in late 2008, the park has been gradually returning to the Busch Gardens Williamsburg branding.

Second to its award winning landscaping and theme, Busch Gardens Williamsburg is perhaps best known for its small but impressively rated collection of coasters (highlighted by Griffon and Apollo’s Chariot), as well as its high tech dark ride, The Curse of DarKastle.

In honor of its 35th anniversary, Busch Gardens has announced that it will introduce several new attractions for the 2010 season. In Ireland, the Abbey Stone Theater will be getting an upgrade as well as receiving a new show, Celtic Fyre. Corkscrew Hill, the simulator ride, will be rethemed to "Europe in the Air", a journey around some of Europe’s most famous landmarks. Busch Gardens will also be introducing "Ramp Jam", a new skateboard show in Festhaus Park, and "IllumiNights", a park wide firework/pyrotechnic show.

Anheuser Busch opened Busch Gardens on May 5, 1975 as part of the company’s recent Williamsburg developments. The park features a combination of roller coasters and Broadway style shows. This park is laid out as a large circle that crosses the path between Banbury Cross, England and Heatherdowns, Scotland. A left turn at this crossroads leads to Italy/San Marco, while a right turn leads to Killarney, Ireland. Guests may also follow the path straight into Heatherdowns, Scotland. Beyond Heatherdowns, the walkway leads down a steep hill containing thirteen flights of stairs with slanted landings. At the base of this hill is the Rhine River Cruise boat ride. The path beyond the boat ride continues up an equally steep hill and stairs leading to Rhinefeld, Germany. Even though the Rhine River Cruise is one of the mildest rides in the park, its location is not accessible to strollers, wheelchairs or ECV Mobility Carts. The park’s operating season originally ran from mid March until the end of October. In 2006, the park placed in Best Food, Best Shows and Cleanest Park. It took the top place in the category Best Landscaping."Amusement Today’s 2006 Golden Ticket September, 2006" Busch Gardens has over several years received recognition from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), most prominently taking the Applause Award for "management, operations and creative accomplishments that have inspired the industry with foresight, originality and sound business development" in November 2002. Busch Gardens Williamsburg was voted as the "World’s Best Theme Park" in both the 2006 and 2007 Theme Park Insider . Busch Gardens is partnered with SeaWorld (also owned by Busch Entertainment Corp.) in the SeaWorld Busch Gardens Fund, which offers guests the opportunity to contribute to wildlife conservation. The Rhine River Cruise’s Boats are battery powered to cut back on power generation and prevent water pollution. In addition Busch Gardens and Water Country USA both use insects rather than pesticides in the park’s commitment to organic gardening.

The park also periodically offers special rates or packages for certain members of the US military. The current program, entitled Here’s to the Heroes, was initiated in February 2005 and has been extended through the 2009 season. Active duty, active reserve, ready reserve, or National Guard service members, along with up to three direct dependents, are granted one day’s free admission to Busch Gardens Williamsburg or one of Anheuser Busch’s other parks."Anheuser Busch Extends Military Tribute".
