Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has won the award for most beautiful amusement park in the world every year since the award was established in 1990. But beyond the lush landscaping you’ll find exclusive thrill rides, exceptional live shows, fun-filled annual events, animal attractions and more.

Experience pulse-pounding excitement with thrill rides like Verbolten, Alpengeist and Griffon which carries riders up 205 feet, then hurtles them 90 degrees straight down at 75 mph. And that’s just the beginning. Curse of DarKastle sends passengers careening through a castle frozen in time by integrating state-of-the-art ride engineering with the latest in image projection and 4-D technology. You'll also find the tallest ride in the park, Mäch Tower, which lifts riders 246 feet above Oktoberfest. Enjoy the spectacular view from the top before suddenly dropping at breathtaking speed.
