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. Or, for more kid friendly attractions, check out Sesame Street Forest of Fun!
Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s largest living museum, documenting the American Revolution. Explore and experience 35 exhibition sites, 16 colonial trade shops, and 15 site tours. You can even participate in daily live performances that capture and recount famous events leading up to the Revolution.
Colonial Williamsburg features dozens of restored homes and buildings ranging from quaint taverns and inns to government buildings. Throughout the colonial area, you’ll find buildings reconstructed to the smallest details. Combining with nearby Jamestown and Yorktown to form the “Historic Triangle,” the historic Williamsburg area features more than 500 original and carefully reconstructed public buildings, 40 exhibit buildings, private homes, quaint inns and taverns, shops and 90 acres of public parks and gardens.
