Busch Gardens Review

Busch Gardens in Williamsburg has been voted the world's most beautiful theme park for 19 consecutive years, and features more than 50 rides and attractions, including five of the world's best roller coasters. Six beautifully landscaped European "countries" re-create the look and feel of France, Germany, England, Scotland, Ireland, and Italy. New for 2009, Sesame Street Forest of Fun brings Elmo and his Sesame Street friends to life. Grover's Alpine Express, the park's newest roller coaster, is one of four new rides designed for children and parents to enjoy together, and is among Busch Gardens' most popular KIDsiderate attractions. Busch Gardens also hosts popular song-and-dance shows (country, Americana, Irish, German folk) in several theaters.
