Busch Gardens Europe (Williamsburg)

Here are some pictures from the chilly day at Busch Gardens. They have changed their name from Williamsburg to Europe. It is themed from several countries over there. This picture is of the Loch Ness Monster roller coaster, guess which country it is in? It is the yellow tracks you see through the tree and other junk in this picture. I couldn't find a good angle to take a picture of this but I wanted to be able to show what was NOT scary to my 5 year old. I wouldn't even go on it and I used to be a big roller coaster lover! Daddy braved it out with him. We also went to Germany and rode the Big bad Wolf. I went on that and it was fun. It is a hanging ride which makes you swing out and it feels like you are flying! He would have gone on all of them but (thank God) he was too short for some of the coasters.

This picture is of the snake he had painted on his face. It was so cold we decided to leave after three hours and sort of let him do this because we felt so bad about leaving. It is one thing walking up and down hills for miles through the park to go on one ride here and there, it is another to do it freezing. I would not have chosen the snake but it is what they offered for boys.

These are some of the flowers throughout the amusement park. It was gorgeous! Beautiful Tulips and Daffodils and such everywhere. Plus some of the Azalea's starting blooming. What a gorgeous landscape!

These are some of the cherry blossoms on the trees and they are in full bloom right now. They were everywhere in Williamsburg! These were on the grounds of the condo place we stayed.

That's about it for today!

Awwww, memories! That Lochness Monster roller coaster was my very first roller coaster ever. Remember riding it with my dad when I was really little...I think my mom was worried sick. Sorry the weather was so cold for you, but great pictures! The flowers are breathtaking...and based on the smile, I think the snake was a big hit!

This place looks like fun. Where is it compared to where we were a couple of years ago in Williamsburg?

Wow Denise, your a dare-devil too, huh?! Well good, next time I am taking you to go on the rides with him LOL!

Jan - it was right there, right near the President's Park. I remember mentioning going but there was some reason we didn't. Might have been a time constraint?

I tried to go back and fix my spelling error in my comment and it won't let me! That was supposed to be 'you're' not 'your'.
