I hate paying extra in principle but for a one day visit, maybe. The only mistake we made was to get the regular vs unlimited, the difference of which was explained by our cashier as unlimited rides vs one ride on all rollercoasters. We took that to mean one ride on all rollercoasters which would have been just fine. However, we learned that without the unlimited pass we could not ride Invader and Tempesto. Was it worth it? Maybe. We used it for the Griffon which the kids said was well worth the $60 extra b/c they did not have to wait in line. The park was clean and not too crowded.

I recently reviewed BG Tampa and just visited BG Williamsburg this week. Both parks have great rides - if you are into that. My wife is emphatically not. So we were quite disappointed when we found that the Burg park has drastically fewer entertainment and educational attractions than its Tampa sibling. We were able to fill a day with enjoyable things, but it was a stretch and we left the park feeling as if we had fully exploited it and would likely not return anytime soon. There are simply not enough non-thrill attractions. Yes, it is a meticulously kept, beautiful park. Yes, it has a large collection of thrill rides. No, there are not a lot of adult-oriented activities for the meek-of-heart. Worth a one-day excursion, but not beyond.

The park is beautiful and well maintained and well laid out... Easy to navigate with small children and strollers and wheelchairs and families with large groups. The staff was very friendly and the rules were family friendly. We had kids Ranging in age from 7 years to 14 years old. We easily spent an entire day there with everyone having plenty to do and tons of fun.

Busch Gardens is a fun park with so much to do. I don't like roller coasters or rides but I still have a blast. Going to every country is entertaining and there are so many stores to go in. I'd recommend going at night (especially in the summer) when its not too hot and a little less crowded.

Great offerings for food fest that compliment the international park theme. We enjoyed several offerings and a 70 cent beer in the Fest House. Busch Gardens always amazes and is kid friendly too. Must see for locals and visitors.
