Busch Gardens Williamsburg

The park was originally called Busch Gardens: The Old Country, reflecting the European theme. In 1993, the park was renamed Busch Gardens Williamsburg before briefly being named Busch Gardens Europe in 2006 until it returned to the Williamsburg name in 2008. Similarly, its sister park in Florida was originally called Busch Gardens: In 2010, the estimated attendance of 2.8 million placed it in the top 20 most-visited parks in the US.

In addition to its landscaping and European theme, Busch Gardens is widely known for its roller coasters, including Alpengeist and Apollo's Chariot, which won #4 best steel coaster in 2012 from the Golden Ticket Awards.
