The inner workings of a theme park are intriguing to many people. What goes on behind-the-scenes? What makes the park tick? We have team members on property 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, caring for animals, plants, grounds and people. These team members are among the group of people preparing the park for the day during operation or keeping it fresh during our closed periods, preparing for the next operating day.
The sun has set on summer and a curse has descended on Busch Gardens in the form of a song. The park has been transformed into Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream. Guests brave enough to venture into this cursed park will navigate through Wendigo Woods, one of five Terror-tories or experience a darkly entertaining show like Monster Stomp on Ripper Row. The curse spreads Sept. 12 and continues weekends through Oct. 26.

My name is Lance and I am the Manager of Entertainment Consumer Events at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Our park has always felt like a mosaic, bringing unique cultures and traditions to life in fun new ways. That’s why I am really excited for Star Spangled Nights, our new summertime event that began July 3 and runs through August 10. We have pulled together our favorite patriotic traditions from across the country, each rooted in this country’s multicultural past, to celebrate together like never before.
The park's tastiest event, the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival, ends June 29. That means there are only two weekends left to feast on fritters, sip sangria and admire edible art.
The 99 days of summer are here and so are some great deals at Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Both parks are now open daily and offer fun for the whole family.
