Ok, so my family and i are coming to Busch Gardens Williamsburg later on this summer and I need a few questions answered before we go.
1. What time is Illuminights at each day?
2. How much approx. would it cost for a family of 7 to eat at one of the full course restraunts for dinner?
3. Does Busch Gardens sell collectible shot glasses (representing the coasters)?
4. Would it be worth it to get the quick queue?
5. How long approx. would it take to get on each coaster in one day?

If you can answer some or all of these questions, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, that's fine to. Thanks!

1. 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 (fireworks)
2. I'd allot $15 a person for the adults, $8 for kids. Of course, it all depends on sides/desserts, etc. (Honestly, you're probably looking at $120-$130 bucks)
3. Yes.
4. Depends on when you come. QQ's will always make your day easier, but they're not cheap. If you're coming early in the week (but not 4th of July week), you may not need them. They do sell them at many of the gift shops in the park, so I'd always suggest just making that call on the spot. Unless you're coming on a Saturday. Then get them for sure.
5. Again, depends on what day you come. Lines could be 1-1.5 hours on busy days.

Have fun.

About QQ, Sometimes QQ is not worth it because it is not quick at all... I have seen some QQ lines at apollo that went down to apollo photo... and since they only load 4 people at a time, that line will take forever, unless you get lucky and they load an entire train of QQ... now most rides (alpengist, verbolten, darkastle, and griffon) let you skip the majority of the lines, but you have to wait in the station... basically, QQ is only worth it if the lines are far out of the station, and not too many people bought QQ's

I've seen it happen once, it was because there was a large group of people (likely a camp or a church, none of them were wearing the same shirts) and they all brought QQs. The ride ops had absolutely no clue what to do because they didn't have anything like that happen before.

I don't think using the QQ perk will be THAT bad, it has its moments with waits even after you've "entered" the QQ line, but you shouldn't wait longer than like 5 minutes for any of the rides. I don't know if everything changed since Vbolt opened but really it couldn't of changed much.

I also thought BGW limited the amount of QQs they sold per day.

Another quick question.... If i do want quick queue, but I want to see the lines of rides first, would I be able to purchase it inside the park and would it be the same price as it is online??

Not sure about the online pricing, but you can buy them at the park, but they only sell a certain amount of them every day. once they run out, then you're standing in line. Unless it's a saturday, or you're in a time crunch on a friday/sunday, I wouldn't get the quick queue.

I have never heard of it happening. I think the park says that so people will buy in advance even if they don't need it.

They have sold out before, I was turned down about thistime two years ago. remember BGW is not six flags, they don't round people up into a line so they can get their Queue pass. They also don't charge $50+ for one either :/
