About these ratings

One of the real perks of this theme park, located southeast of Williamsburg, is that it truly does have something for all ages to enjoy. That's not just a PR pitch; toddlers should like the Sesame Street Forest of Fun and the chance to meet some of that show's most beloved characters. Bigger kids can get up close and personal at animal encounter exhibits like Lorikeet Glen and Wolf Valley (under supervision, of course). Teenagers are the prime candidates to stand in line for thrilling coasters like the Alpengeist, the Griffon or the Loch Ness Monster. Finally, adults flock to the themed country lands, especially the Oktoberfest village and its beer gardens.

Recent park-goers describe the grounds as well maintained, though they do occasionally complain about the cleanliness of other areas. So says a Yelp.com traveler: "The bathrooms can be scarier than the rides at times. Just be sure to squat, don't sit."

Others lament the hefty admission fees. Busch Gardens, open for the late spring and all of summer from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., charges approximately $64 for adults to enter. Children ages 3 to 9 face a fee of nearly $54. Also note that parking will set you back about $13. Consider purchasing a multiple-day Williamsburg Flex Ticket that allows you to visit several area attractions, including Busch Gardens, for about $177.
