    Busch Gardens Quality Control Team

    I figured the forum here consists of people who really care about the park and how it looks to the General Public. We are the fan base that visits so often, we can recite ride spiels by heart and still refer to the areas of of the park by their Hamlet name and not the country. We are in...

    Busch Gardens In the Snow!

    Snow at Busch Gardens Williamsburg December 31, 2010 By Nora Marien When I was very little, I used to dream about what Busch Gardens Williamsburg looked like in the snow. Most kids would peer out their window and watch the falling fluffy flakes; thinking about snowball fights or building a...

    The Fixx Concert

    Got my 80's FIXX at the Busch Gardens Free Concert Series!! August 1, 2010 Apparently my concert experiences thus far have either been plagued by insane heat or by miserable rain. Doesn't surprise me really; I am always the one to have bad luck when it comes to weather. Still, I cannot be...

    The Bangles Concert

    The Bangles July 25th, 2010 Around 3pm, I decided to head out early to avoid the inevitable back-up that always plagues my trips up I-64 to Busch Gardens. My early bird efforts resulted in smooth sailing to the park besides getting stuck behind some slow-pokes once or twice. At 108 degrees, I...

    B52's Concert

    Rock'n with the B-52's A Fantastic Start To Busch Gardens Summer Concert Series Today was a highly anticipated concert for me. Growing up in the 80's, it was hard to miss the unique sound of a band called the B-52's. Technically, the band was labeled "New Wave" in the 80's. Yet if you asked...

    Destination Europe in the Air 5/22/10

    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 management...
