    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]
    • THE WORD ON DOG STREET: REVERSING ATTENDANCE TRENDS
      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true.

    • An Open Letter to the Colonial Williamsburg Community
      The role of Williamsburg in America’s founding is nothing short of extraordinary.

BUSCH GARDENS® Announced whats going to be NEW for the upcoming Season

Peace, love and happiness filled Das Festhaus® at Busch Gardens® Saturday morning at the park’s annual Pass Member Appreciation Weekend kickoff. Pass Members who attended the event were the first to hear about a new Christmas Town™ Pass add-on offer, Howl-O-Scream® and Christmas Town details, as well as a new British rock-n-roll show debuting next year in the park’s Globe Theatre.
The exclusive event featured details about a special Christmas Town Pass available as an add-on for active Annual Pass Members that provides unlimited admission to Christmas Town for the 2013 season. The $30 pass add-on is the same price as a Christmas Town Single-Day Ticket and Pass Members retain their membership benefits, including free parking and in-park discounts.For a limited time, pass members can purchase the Christmas Town Pass add-on for $25. Pass members can visit http://www.bgwpass.com and log in to their Pass Member account for complete details. Christmas Town fans without an Annual Pass can visit buschgardens.com/va to become a pass member and then take advantage of this pass-member exclusive offer.

Busch Gardens, known for high-caliber productions like Celtic Fyre® is raising the bar again in 2014 with the debut of London Rocks™. Guests will embark on a musical journey that explores the roots of rock-n-roll and transforms Busch Gardens’ Globe Theatre into a rousing 25-minute live action and multi-media rock spectacular. The musical revue explores the powerful role that music plays in people’s lives.

Long before 2014’s British invasion, guests this fall will experience London’s more sinister past when Howl-O-Scream opens Sept. 13 and Busch Gardens’ England becomes Ripper Row®, one of four new Terror-tories™. France, Italy, Germany and England are being transformed into over-the-top thematic experiences that transport guests to another time and place full of startles and frights.  Chart a course through the haunted waters in Italy, flee the flames of burning France, avoid becoming a vampire’s dinner in Germany or hunt for Jack the Ripper in London’s East End. In these immersive experiences, guests are the main characters whose fates are linked to the creatures roaming through the “Dark Side of the Gardens.”

Leave the frights behind this Christmas season and visit Busch Gardens starting Nov. 22 when it transforms into a winter wonderland during this most wonderful time of the year. Christmas Town is opening one week earlier this year to meet the demand for this popular family tradition.  Visit Santa at his North Pole workshop and begin a Christmas Town tradition that is warm as apple pie, then take a step into the not-so-distant-past at Holiday Hills™ where mid-twentieth century Christmas celebrations come to life. Sip some of Busch Gardens’ signature peppermint fudge hot chocolate and let the warmth of the season take over.
