Things to do at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

A hidden adventure awaits you and your family at Busch Gardens ® Williamsburg. No matter when you visit or at what age, there’s something for everyone to see and do. Escape to the world’s most beautiful theme park or be a daredevil on one of eight world-class roller coasters and many thrilling rides. Our littlest guests can play and have fun in two kid-friendly areas, Land of the Dragons ® or Sesame Street ® Forest of Fun . We also offer rides for kids in each village with larger attractions for the thrill seekers in the family.



All-new wooden roller coaster, InvadR™, opens April 2017

When guests are ready to take a break from the rides or the heat of summer, the park’s shows will keep guests entertained throughout the day and into the evening. There are different genres and styles for everyone, including live music in Mix It Up!, Elmo and his furry friends singing in Sunny Days Celebration, Irish dancing in Celtic Fyre and a British musical revue in the newest show Britmania .

We cherish and care about our animals here at Busch Gardens and want to inspire others to do the same. Visit with the Clydesdale horses at Highland Stables or learn about gray wolves in their natural habitat. Rescue and conservation are important parts of protecting animals and their habitats worldwide.

Some of the specialty gifts throughout the different villages actually come from those specific countries, including Irish crystal, German-made steins and masks from Venice.
