Virginia Safari Park

Looking for a fun day or weekend trip for the family? Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, VA is a drive-through safari with free-roaming animals. In fact the 180-acre park is home to over 1,000 exotic animals from 6 continents including elk, gazelle, zebra & other exotic fauna. The park is approximately 200 miles from Williamsburg.

You drive through the park observing the animals and you can purchase specialty grain to feed them. We took our family recently and had a wonderful time.

busch gardens safari virginia

I highly recommend the trip and purchasing the buckets of food. The animals will approach your vehicle in search of a tasty treat! You will laugh, squeal, and perhaps find food bits in your car for weeks.

I don’t recommend feeding animals through the sunroof unless you want it to “rain” feed all in your vehicle…

Not one but two elk peeking through the windows.

Safari Park Walk thru

There is also a walk-thru area with giraffe feeding, petting area and even African penguins!

Safari Park Bison

The great thing about the park is everyone enjoys it from the young to the old. Some are braver than others, so if you choose to just ride through the park or hold your bucket of feed for the animals to come up to the vehicle, you’re guaranteed a day of memories!

Important information.

The VIRGINIA SAFARI PARK, a 180-acre drive-through zoo located in Natural Bridge, VA, is NOT associated with the Natural Bridge Zoo, which is also located in Natural Bridge.

Unfortunately, with the recent legal issues and press coverage surrounding the Natural Bridge Zoo we have found it necessary to post this clarification. We have been contacted by many sources that have inadvertently confused the two zoos.

Our official website is www.virginiasafaripark.com. Please beware of copycat imitations. Again, the VIRGINIA SAFARI PARK is NOT associated with the Natural Bridge Zoo and never has been.

Thank you for your understanding.

Ride Roller Coasters Through Italy, France, and Germany at This European-themed Amusement Park in Virginia

Here's everything you need to know about Busch Gardens Williamsburg before you visit.

Evie Carrick is a writer and editor who’s lived in five countries and visited well over 50. She now splits her time between Colorado and Paris, ensuring she doesn't have to live without skiing or L'As du Fallafel.

busch gardens safari virginia

If a European vacation isn’t in the cards for you this year, a visit to Williamsburg, Virginia could do the trick. At Busch Gardens Williamsburg, visitors are transported — by train, no less — through Germany , France, Italy, Ireland, Scotland, and England. You can build a loaded baked potato at Ireland’s O’Tators before digging into a cannoli in Italy’s Marco Polo’s Marketplace . Then, head to Germany for OktoberZest , a show that promises to entertain with music and dancing that celebrates the German culture.

Once the novelty of a European-themed park has worn off — there are the rides. And the Busch Gardens roller coasters don’t disappoint. The park is home to rides like Griffon , which drops passengers 205 feet at 75 miles per hour, and Apollo's Chariot, which is consistently given top marks by Golden Ticket Awards .

Ready to strap in for a thrilling trip to America’s little Europe? Here’s everything you need to know before visiting Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

When to Visit Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Busch Gardens in Virginia is a seasonal park, so it closes in early January and reopens in mid-March every year. As you’d expect, the park is busiest over summer holiday weekends — including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day. But keep in mind the park is also packed during their Halloween-themed Howl-O-Scream weekends (running late September through late October) and Christmas Town weekends (Thanksgiving through early January).

If you want to avoid the crowds and maximize the number of rides you can take, visit during the week (particularly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) or plan your trip around a non-holiday weekend. Regardless of when you visit Busch Gardens Williamsburg, arriving at the park before it opens will ensure can get in at least a few rides before it gets crowded.

How to Select the Best Busch Gardens Williamsburg Tickets

If you’re planning a summer or fall visit, the standard Busch Gardens 1-day ticket gives you access to the Virginia park for one day between March 15 and Nov. 1, 2020 for $88.99. During the Christmas Town season (November to January) ticket prices typically vary between $34.99 and $59.99, depending on the day.

Regardless of when you plan your trip to Virginia’s Busch Gardens, buying tickets online and in advance will ensure you secure the best prices.

Simplify the Busch Gardens Experience

Depending on what sort of park experience you have in mind, you might want to buy ticket add-ons in advance. If you want great seats to Celtic Fyre , an Irish step dancing show, paying a little extra will be well worth a reserved seat. And if you already know you and your crew are all about the food — add on an All-Day Dining Deal + Drinks, which will ensure you can get an entree, a side or dessert, and a drink every 90 minutes. Virginia’s Busch Gardens also offers quick queue access so you can enjoy priority status at your favorite rides and roller coasters .

To make life even easier, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has a Transferable Ride Locker Pass so you can secure your belongings while you hop on a ride, and a Quick Pay Cashless Wristband, so you can make purchases without fumbling for your wallet.

Hotels Near Busch Gardens VA

When it’s time to escape the buzz of the park, a hotel near Busch Gardens is the perfect place to stay. For a taste of luxury, a stay at the nearby Kingsmill Resort is in order. The property is Williamsburg’s only AAA Four Diamond Condominium Resort, and it boasts two championship golf courses, a spa, three pools (and a lazy river!), four restaurants, and most importantly, a location near Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The shuttle to and from the theme park is complementary and the service is top-notch.

In terms of proximity to the park, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Williamsburg is impossible to beat. The hotel has its own indoor and outdoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, game room, and an internet cafe. For an additional fee, you can hop on the daily shuttle to and from Busch Gardens.

Where to Eat at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

You can’t bring your own food into the park (other than single-serve sized snacks and water), so use it as a welcome excuse to eat at one of Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s many European-themed eateries.

Meat-lovers can head to New France’s Trapper's Smokehouse for barbecue ribs, chicken, and brisket. And everyone in the family will leave happy after a visit to the Marco Polo’s Marketplace — where you can choose from Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian meals.

Busch Gardens Roller Coasters You Won’t Want to Miss

In addition to tried and true Busch Gardens roller coasters — Apollo’s Chariot, Verbolten, Griffon, Alpengeist, and the Loch Ness Monster — you’ll want to swing by the new Finnegan’s Flyer , which swings passengers 80 feet into the air.

And, starting in 2020, Busch Gardens Williamsburg visitors can experience the fastest multi-launch roller coaster in the world. The Pantheon will have four launches, two inversions, a 95-degree drop, and will move at speeds up to 73 m.p.h.

Events 

Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Winter Weekends

There is a good bit of overlap when it comes to the two parks' event offerings, such as Howl-O-Scream, Christmas Town, Bier Fest, and the annual Food & Wine Festival. And while Busch Gardens Tampa is not a seasonal park, allowing for a greater quantity of events, Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Winter Weekends and St. Patrick's Day Celebration push the Virginia park into the number one spot for events. 

There's a rare wonder that comes from going to theme parks in the proper Winter, in riding your favorite coaster in mittens and stepping off the train with wind-whipped cheeks. Though the park is open with limited rides and offerings, this event is one you don't want to miss.

Theming 

Cobra's Curse at Busch Gardens Tampa

Both Busch Gardens landscapes operate with minimal theming, focusing more on lush landscapes and clean walkways to immerse you into the world of the park. Focusing on two different continents, both parks do a stellar job with subtle touches that make you feel like you're walking the streets of Germany or exploring the plains of Africa.  

Though Williamsburg and Tampa deliver in theming, Williamsburg's European street scenes, shops, and detailed queue lines bring it to the forefront.

Overall Experience 

River Cruise at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

These parks' similarities are many, but the experiences feel wholly unique from one another. These are both large parks, doing the most with their funds, location, and space. They both have helpful, more-than-competent staff members, ready to assist you with a smile, and somehow manage to feel like small, intimate parks despite their acreage.

Given all this, there is something special about Busch Gardens Tampa. Maybe it's in the music, or in the flamingos that greet you at the front of the park, or the amount of iconic attractions in one place, but Tampa stands out not only among its chain, but among theme parks in general. When it comes to overall experience, it is hard to beat Busch Gardens Tampa.

The Verdict

iron gwazi

The final score is 2-3, with Busch Gardens Tampa narrowly coming out on top!

These are both world-class parks, as lovely in their similarities as they are in their differences, and I'd encourage anyone who has the opportunity to visit one or both Busch Gardens locations to see for yourself and make your own call. 

What Park Duels would you like to see in the future?

Busch Gardens – The Old Country Map and Brochure (1975 – 2024)

Location:  Williamsburg, Virginia

Years Active: 1975 – Active

Busch Gardens  is the name of two amusement parks in the United States, owned and operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. The original park is in Tampa, Florida, and the second park is in Williamsburg, Virginia.

There were also previously Busch Gardens parks in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California (1964–1979) and Houston, Texas (1971–1973). The “Busch Gardens” name was earlier used to refer to the gardens developed by Adolphus Busch near his home in Pasadena, California, open to the public from 1906 to 1937.

The Busch Gardens amusement parks were initially developed as marketing vehicles for Anheuser-Busch and featured hospitality houses with samples of Anheuser-Busch products. They also included stables that housed many of the company’s Clydesdale horses, which have been associated with Anheuser-Busch since 1933.

Eventually, rides and attractions were added to the parks and, over time, were developed into full theme parks while still promoting Anheuser-Busch. Busch Entertainment Corporation, now called SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, was created as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch Companies to run the various parks in 1959.

Which is the original Busch Gardens?

The original Busch Gardens is located in Tampa, Florida, USA. It was opened to the public in 1959 by Anheuser-Busch, a brewing company. This Busch Gardens is often referred to as Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and is known for its combination of amusement park rides and a zoological park, featuring a wide variety of animal exhibits and attractions, making it a popular destination for both thrill-seekers and animal enthusiasts.

Is Busch Gardens owned by Disney?

No, Busch Gardens is not owned by Disney. Busch Gardens is owned and operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, a separate entertainment company. Disney, on the other hand, operates its own theme parks under the name “Walt Disney Parks and Resorts,” which include popular destinations such as Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and others around the world.

' src=

With over 50 rides and shows featuring everything from roller coasters to water parks to live music events, Busch Gardens is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

The Basic Details

Busch Gardens is located in Williamsburg, Virginia, and generally operates from March to October each year. Before you visit, it’s always best to check for any changes in operating hours, current show offerings, and show times. You can also check to see if any special events are going on when you plan to visit.

In general, the park opens at 10 am and closes at 8 pm during the summer months, with extended hours on weekends and select holidays. The cost of tickets starts at a discounted price of $25 per day when a multi-day pass (3+ days) is purchased or $70 for one day of fun.

If you live nearby or plan to stay a while, Busch Gardens also offers monthly and annual passes or membership plans that can fit an individual’s or family’s needs. You can also purchase tickets to their sister waterpark, Water Country USA .

Stay Up to Date

Busch Gardens frequently offers different shows and events. For example, some of their most significant events of the year include Hal-o-Scream and Bier Fest. For up-to-date information on current offerings, they recommend downloading their app .

How to Get Your Tickets

For easier access, it’s best to purchase your tickets online instead of at the gate. You can choose from various packages, including season passes and multi-day tickets. Check out their discounts for military personnel, AAA members, and seniors.

You might also find an all-in-one vacation package that includes your tickets without the need to purchase them directly.

You can purchase tickets at the gate if you’d like to wait until you arrive at the park. It’s important to remember that sales end one hour before closing time, so make sure you plan accordingly.

What to Expect

Arrive ready for lots of fun and adventures. Busch Gardens has something for everyone, with over 50 thrilling rides ranging from family-friendly roller coasters to extreme water slides. For a more relaxed experience, the park also features a variety of shows and exhibits, like the Animal Care Center and Eagle Valley Birds Show.

Busch Gardens has plenty to offer in entertainment and dining if you’re looking for more than just rides. With a mix of dining options from quick snacks to full-service restaurants, as well as events like live music performances and special festivals throughout the year, you’ll never run out of things to do.

Things to Do at Busch Gardens

Knowing what you want to do before arriving at the park can help. Trying to see it all in one day is not typically recommended.

  • Rides and coasters
  • Tours via train or bus (or book a private tour)
  • Animal encounters
  • Restaurants for snacking and dining
  • Shopping for souvenirs and fun memorabilia
  • Youth and child camps (check for current offerings)
  • Special events, such as Bier Fest and Hal-o-Scream

To plan your day ahead of time, look at the map and plan a practical route. You can also use their queue times to plan the order in which you would like to visit rides and attractions.

Tips for Your Visit

Want to get the most out of your visit? Follow these tips.

  • Take advantage of coupons , discounts, and loyalty programs that are available. Busch Gardens offers a variety of discounts for seniors, military personnel, and AAA members. They also offer reward card programs that can provide plenty of benefits for frequent visitors.
  • If you hate lines (who doesn’t), consider upgrading our ticket to a “quick queue” that allows you to skip many crowds.
  • Plan ahead and familiarize yourself with Busch Gardens’ layout. The park is divided into ten sections, each with its own identity (by country) and attractions to explore.
  • If you’re unsure what to see, consider booking a tour for guidance. Tour options include animal encounters, a look behind the scenes of the rollercoasters, family fun, and VIP tours.
  • Don’t try to see it all in one day. Especially with little ones, it’s the most fun to spend a few days exploring the park rather than trying to cram it all into one day (if time allows).
  • Download the Busch Gardens app for updated wait times and maps.
  • On a budget or have picky eaters? Bring a refillable water bottle and snacks. While there are plenty of food options available within the park, outside food and drinks are allowed and can help you save some money. You can also purchase a food plan before entering the park to get the best possible deal.
  • Don’t forget to check the forecast and dress for the weather. Busch Gardens is primarily outdoors, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a light jacket or umbrella. Also, carry essentials like hats and sunscreen.
