    Busch Gardens

    The European setting of Busch Gardens has been voted "The World's Most Beautiful Theme Park" every year since 1990, and proves to be a delight for adults. But it's the rides that thrill the kids and give it another distinction, "The World's Favorite Theme Park!" 

    Visit England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy without the hassle of passports, customs and language barriers. Every country at Busch Gardens showcases popular foods, landmarks, gardens, shops and entertainment that put you in the middle of a particular European village. Hit the roller coasters of each country, too. Two of Busch Gardens' five coasters are rated in the Top 25 in the World! 

    A recent addition to Busch Gardens is Verbolten®, a multi-launch, indoor/outdoor roller coaster that sends guests on a fun and mystifying family adventure through the Black Forest.


    Kings Dominion

    A 400-acre theme and water park, Kings Dominion, is home to more than 60 rides and attractions, including 15 world-class roller coasters known to international coaster enthusiasts, and KD is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2014! Located just 20 miles north of Richmond and 75 miles south of Washington, D.C., this Central Virginia theme park opens its gates to more than 13 million visitors a year.

    Hop aboard any one of the 15 roller coasters for a thrilling time, and then explore Planet Snoopy, where even the littlest ones in the family become big thrill-seekers!
