Went to Busch Gardens and it was a lot of fun. Family friendly, like a small six flags. It does have rides for the kids and parents with child-like attitudes. Plenty to see and eat although I will say prices were alittle high. Still, a...More

This is a really nice theme park, the best in the area for sure. The rides and shows are as expected but the grounds are nicely landscaped and beautifully attended and the food venues are a step above many other local parks.

Depends on weather. Verbolten usually open. Kiddie rides open. Areas are enclosed with heaters to sit & eat. But the lights are so unbelievably fantastic & shows so upgraded, you may not care.
