What you can expect
Step into a world of European-inspired fun at Busch Gardens. Take a roller coaster thrill ride through the Black Forest, grab a pretzel at Oktoberfest, and meet the sheep and collies of the Scottish highlands as you explore the 10 different hamlets in this family-friendly theme park.
Hop on the Skyride Gondola to explore the park from above or climb aboard a steam train to make your way between villages by rail. When you're ready to jump off, spend your time ducking into themed areas from around the world.
You might squeeze into London-style, red telephone booths in Banbury Cross or catch a 4-D show at the Globe Theater. Head to Renaissance-era San Marco, to seek out slices of pizza and a ride inspired by da Vinci's sketches in the Garden of Inventions. Parents and older guests can refuel in the beer garden in Bavarian Oktoberfest while thrill seekers can speed away on the haunted ski lift Alpengeist in Rhinefeld, or plummet down watery chutes on the Le Scoot Log Flume.
The littlest visitors can go for a spin on the antique Kinder Karussel, or take flight in the Land of the Dragons play area. Before you leave, make sure to stop by Jack Hanna's Wild Reserve—home to amazing wildlife, including bald eagles and majestic wolves.
Consider adding onto your visit to Busch Gardens with a wet-and-wild adventure at Water Country USA, where you and your family can tackle slippery slides, massive wave pools, and high-speed tube rides.
