Over the many years we've been visiting Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, the attraction map has become somewhat of a growth chart for my 3 kids. In the early years they happily toddled around the Forest of Fun, visited the horses, got their swim diapers wet in the fountains, circumnavigated the park on the Busch Gardens Railway, and then passed out from exhaustion in their strollers by 2:00.
It was a big deal when they were brave enough to ascend the Tree House and Net Climb in the Land of Dragons and ride Grover's Alpine Express coaster (both of which they still like to do).
Each year they eagerly jump under a height chart to check to see which new rides they are tall enough for. In addition to revisiting old favorites, they've progressively moved outside their comfort zone and tried bigger and bigger rides. And this year, for the first time, EVERYONE in the family hit the magic height of 48 inches and was tall enough to ride some roller coasters like the Loch Ness Monster and Verbolten (below).
Meanwhile, only my 15 year old is tall enough to move to greater heights, GULP, like Tempesto and the Griffon (below). But who knows, maybe next year the rest of the kids will have grown up enough to try them!
Our kids have grown up with the rides and attractions at Busch Gardens and still find something new and fun to explore each year. From juice boxes to iphones, the park is a perennial favorite for all ages and stages!
