From May 23rd through June 29th the park is hosting the second annual Food & Wine Festival.

  • 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 No responses May 26, 2014
  • 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. Though the response wasn’t overwhelming, it seemed that some of you were, indeed, interested. […] Zachary No responses June 11, 2013
  • 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 No responses October 14, 2012

  • Christmas Town: It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year [singlepic id=2162 w=320 h=240 float=right]Last year was the first time Busch Gardens Williamsburg opened their gates for the Christmas Season; spending a fortune on lights, trees, new musical shows, and tons of merchandise for an event that no one could predict if it would be a hit or not. What happened was a Christmas miracle […] Nora No responses December 2, 2010
  • Christmas Town: A Review Review By Noreen Lambert On Friday, November 26th, 2010, Christmas Town, a Busch Gardens Celebration opened. This was their second year putting on such a celebration. I had been anticipating attending for the last three months and the day finally came.

  • A Parent's Guide to Howl-O-Scream While the “Scare is Everywhere” at this year’s Howl-O-Scream after 6pm, and the probability of avoiding all “scares” throughtout the event, there are some tips that parents with small children can use to navigate the park with their children to avoid the most active scare spots.

  • The Scare Is (Almost) Everywhere [singlepic id=1918 w=320 h=240 float=right]For the 2010 Howl-O-Scream, Busch Gardens made a point to advertise that no place in the park would be safe. For the most part, the theming and scares have indeed been ramped up this season, but there are still some areas of the park that haven’t quite measured up. That being […] Chris No responses September 26, 2010
  • Destination Europe In The Air, A Review Europe in the Air, which in my opinion, is the most accurate title of any ride in the world. Basically you are pretending to be up in the air and well, that’s all folks. Like I said, accurate title. Reaching Ireland, I had to cover my eyes in horror as someone in the park’s upper […] Nora No responses May 30, 2010
