• Les Frites Review Last Saturday at Pass Member Preview Day, Zachary, Joe, Thomas, Pretzel Kaiser, Tony, and I decided to take one for the team and try everything on the menu at Les Frites. As is our custom, we rated each dish, so we could share our questionable, if enthusiastic, wisdom with all y’all. Perhaps the most important […] Nicole

  • No Escape: Reviewed On the first day of Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s 2016 Howl-O-Scream event, Zachary and I attended a media preview, where we were invited to explore the park’s two new “No Escape” escape rooms: The Case of Jack the Ripper and The Case of Mr. Karver. The former seemed to tie in well with the Terror-tory in Banbury […] Nicole

The first installment was intended to highlight each of the individual dishes, while this one was meant to look more broadly at […] Nicole

  • Taste of Asia Food & Wine Preview Menu Review On September 6th Zachary, Applesauce, Tony, and I (Nicole) ventured to Busch Gardens Williamsburg for Pass Member Appreciation Day. Although the speech itself was short, we enjoyed the breakfast and the lines for the rides were practically nonexistent. After meeting up with several other ParkFans Forum members, and enjoying most of the park, we decided to head […] Nicole

  • Colossal Curl: Do Not Let Go! Do Not Let Go! Let me repeat that. Do Not Let Go. Yesterday my family braved Memorial Day weekend crowds to try out Colossal Curl. The bottom line? It is far and away the best water slide we have ever experienced. For context, we have only been to WCUSA, Aquatica, Adventure Island, and Wet ‘n’ Wild, […] Nicole

  • The Chef’s Guests: A Review Introduction About a week or so ago I asked on our Facebook page whether or not there was any interest in a quick review of The Chef’s Guests, one of Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s up-charge experiences for this year’s Food & Wine Festival.

  • Howl-O-Scream 2012: The Full Review The original plan was to have a review posted following opening weekend, but there was a problem: Howl-O-Scream’s opening weekend was literally one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced at the park. Everything was an absolute disaster. Houses were horribly understaffed, the actors that were present did absolutely nothing, the houses were in awful shape, and park theming […] Zachary
