Busch Gardens Williamsburg opens March 27 for 2015 season

Busch Gardens®  Williamsburg VA opens March 27 for its 2015 season and is celebrating its 40th anniversary with free park tickets for anyone born in 1975. The three-day promotion kicks off March 27 and begins a season of events and celebrations in honor of Busch Gardens’ four decades of thrilling family entertainment.

imageThe free ticket offer is only available at Busch Gardens’ ticket window situated at the front of the park. People interested in taking advantage of the Busch Gardens free ticket offer must show a valid picture ID that indicates their year of birth.

On April 25, Busch Gardens will debut a 21st-century thrill coaster that stands alongside Griffon® and Verbolten® as marvels of modern engineering. Tempesto™ opens April 25 and is Busch Gardens’ newest thrill attraction. Tempesto’s three launch elements speed the train through the ride’s station house and past waiting guests at more than 60 miles per hour.

“Guests waiting to experience Tempesto will certainly feel its power as the coaster train races past them at highway speeds,” said Larry Giles, Busch Gardens’ vice president of engineering.

In addition to multiple launch elements that propel the train forward and backward through the station house, Tempesto’s riders will experience the ride’s signature loop-the-loop, featuring a high-speed inversion soaring 154 feet above the park. Tempesto details are included in a fact sheet provided at the end of this news release.

Busch Gardens has a full lineup of events planned for its 2015 season.

Roll Out The Barrel debuts March 27. This new live performance takes place inside Das Festhaus®. Live musicians, singers and dancers join high-flying acrobats in this interactive musical about intrepid brewers living in a small German village.

The Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival returns May 22 through June 28 with two new menus. The addition of Asia and The French Quarter kiosks expands the culinary cultural reach to 14 geographical regions.

Star Spangled Nights honors the country’s roots with fireworks, all-American food and patriotic décor. Fireworks light up the night’s sky every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from July 3 through Sept. 6.

Of course, Howl-O-Scream® and Christmas Town™ are returning later this year with new experiences for guests to enjoy.

Many more events are taking place throughout the year, including the special Elmo Rocks! live show this weekend, appearances by renowned animal expert Jack Hanna in April and a new Bier Fest this fall. Visit Buschgardens.com/events for a complete listing of Busch Gardens’ events.       

Now through March 31, the Williamsburg parks are offering a great deal on a 2-Park Fun Card. For just $75 — the same price as a one-day ticket to Busch Gardens — guests receive unlimited admission to both Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA through Sept. 7. The offer represents a 25 percent savings off the regular price of a 2-Park Fun Card. For more information, visit www.buschgardens.com/va.
