Travel More

Seven different countries in nine themed villages are represented at the World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park. Enjoy the cultures, foods, and entertainment of England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Canada, Germany, and Italy – all without leaving the park! Exciting shows such as Celtic Fyre in Abbey Stone Theatre (Ireland), Oktoberzest in Das Festhaus (Oktoberfest), and Bel Concertino in San Marco Theatre (Italy) delight audiences throughout the day and night. For our younger guests, a trip down to Sesame Street Forest of Fun might be just the kind of travel they have in mind.

Conquer your Fitness Goals

One ever-popular New Year’s resolution is to get in shape. Walking is a great way to tackle that goal and you’ll have no trouble getting in your steps by walking the Busch Gardens Williamsburg loop. At 5,675 steps, or 2.4 miles, to complete the entire loop, you’ll be ready for another pretzel and round of beers at Das Festhaus by the time you’re finished.

Be More Adventurous

Tap into your adventuresome side by daring to take on some of our most thrilling rides. New for this year is Pantheon, the World’s Fastest Multi-launch Coaster – opening this spring! You can also see the sights of Ireland as never before on Finnegan’s Flyer, hurtle through six staggering inversions on Alpengeist, hang on tight as Apollo’s Chariot drops 210 feet, or dive through France on the floorless Griffon.
