Busch Gardens Williamsburg will continue operating on limited days in September while it adds additional days and a couple more roller coasters and rides.
The theme park, which reopened earlier this month by holding a Coasters & Craft Brews event during certain days in August, has come up with Taste of Busch Gardens, another new limited capacity special event that requires reservations.
“Coming off of our very successful Coasters & Craft Brews event, the Taste of Busch Gardens is another way for us to provide our guests with a unique experience sure to create long-lasting memories, while operating with enhanced health and safety measures in place,” said Kevin Lembke, president of Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
“We’re adding even more coasters and rides for the entire family,” he said. “The combination of world class coasters and rides paired with a menu of brand new culinary offerings will make for an amazing experience that only Busch Gardens can provide.”
The Taste of Busch Gardens event will add:
- two roller coasters — Alpengeist and Verbolten — to the park’s previous lineup of certain attractions including InvadR, Griffon and Finnegan’s Flyer.
- three new rides — Der Wirblewind swing ride, Le Scoot log flume ride and Kinder Karussel carousel — in addition to visiting Busch Garden’s famous Clydesdales.
- two new villages — Oktoberfest and Rhinefeld — in addition to the five previously opened villages of England, Ireland, Scotland, France and New France.
- one additional day during the week — Wednesdays. The park’s will be open for limited hours from Sept. 2 through Sept. 27 — Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (and Labor Day) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
