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.

"Welcome Back and I'm in tears"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2020 NEW
Like others, I've complained about the financial aspects of the park being closed during COVID. SeaWorld often does not handle complaints promptly or in a very customer service focused manner. That being said, since BG Williamsburg has opened with limited capacity, we have now visited 5 times with our membership passes. I didn't realize how much I missed this park until the first time I pulled up to the parking attendant who said "Welcome back" and I started crying. Even with all of the current limitations we were just so happy to be back and be able to walk around this beautiful park, ride what rides were available, and see the animals again. Let's face it, this is a huge park and we've been when you barely have elbow room walking around -Christmas Town is a prime example, hordes of people. We cherished this time with the lower crowds. It's not something that might ever come around again.

"Best Chocolate Cake I have ever eaten."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 07, 2020 NEW
I'm almost 70 years old, about 30 years ago I took my family to this Busch Gardens, the one thing I remember was the Chocolate Cake, it was the best I have ever eaten then and still is. Many years ago I tried to get the recipe and couldn't, I live in Oregon and have never been back, the only reason we ended up there was that my son was in the Coast Gaurd, and we went to see him there.

"Great weekend getaway "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 06, 2020 NEW
Since having a child, We’ve been here every season that they’re open and ended up getting annual passes. It’s a short drive from Northern VA. We love how it has everything from shows to animals. How we just wish that there’ll be more added options for the meal package. When you visit often the food choices gets old. But kids actually doesn’t mind.

Only a small portion of the park was open, but it was nice.Only 3 coasters were open, and a few other rides. No shows, only one place to eat... could have been better, but it was still fun. Busch Gardens always does an excellent job at keeping the place clean.
