Thanks for posting this great video!!! I have only been a passport member since 2004; therefore, I have not seen some of these earlier features of the park.

You know, this is why I miss the old Busch Gardens... just look at all the street performers.

It brings back fond memories as I always enjoyed spotting the actors and watching their antics around the park.

I cannot imagine bringing some performers back would be THAT costly. I still want Sherlock Holmes and Watson back.... dag nab it.

These videos are wonderful. It's a shame that most of the street theater is gone.

Re: Faraway Places

Waahhhh -BBW!

This was my childhood era at Busch Gardens. I was about 7 or 8 at the time of this video. The film really takes me back. (And reminds me of how horrible the fashions were).

They should bring back more street theater because it makes it more entertaining to go. And plus isn't one of the reasons for a theme park is to make the visitors think they are in the place that is the theme. Doesn't street theater help promote that reason.

I know this is an old thread, but i figured it was worth posting. This is the Faraway Places video posted above but i believe its a higher quality

I found this video on youtube titled "Busch Gardens, Williamburg, VA--July 10, 1976". I donot own this nor did I post the original on youtube.

I do think it is a neat insight into what the park was like in its early years from a guest point of view.

That is awesome video. The guy who posted it linked it on the Busch Gardens Facebook page last night I watched it about 1:30 this morning and had to fight the urge to wake up my wife so she could see it too. It's amazing how it looks the same but is still so different.

That might be the oldest home made POV video I've ever seen. I'm surprised someone would take their 8mm movie camera on a water ride. A couple good shots the glissade.
