While at Busch Gardens, I loved strolling through Lorikeet Glen. The rainbow lorikeets really seemed to like me, or maybe it was just the nectar! To get the full experience like I did make sure to purchase a cup of nectar at the entrance to Lorikeet Glen.

Had a wonderful time with my wife and kids. The park is beautiful. Lines weren’t too bad. It was a little hot. But by dinner time weather was phenomenal. Love the country themes.

Last years Howl O Scream was much better. The new Jack show is a joke. Bring back the old Dr Frankenstein show. Whoever came up with this stupidity should be terminated.

My children (13, 12, 9) had a great time and I managed to ride two coasters after 15 years of not liking thrill rides. The park in arranged in Europe country themes in sections. You have to experience this wonderful park and please wear sunscreen, Hydrate and have a ball. Wear tennis shoes and not sandals for comfort in walking, the park is huge. Enjoy your family time!

Reviewed September 10, 2019 NEW
We enjoyed the rides and lines were relatively short. DON’T waste your money on the Drink/Dining Ticket - total waste. We used it once and it was barely able to be used anywhere and there had to be 90 minutes between each use - that would have been nice to know before we bought them.
