At Busch Gardens, experience thrills on Verbolten®, an indoor/outdoor multi-launch roller coaster featuring an autobahn touring experience through Germany’s scenic countryside and the forbidden Black Forest. Guests have the ride of their lives on the tallest ride in the park, Mäch Tower®, that lifts up to 30 riders nearly 240 feet above Oktoberfest. After rotating at the top of the tower and getting a few seconds to take in the view, riders drop at breathtaking speed. And don't miss the park's newest coaster, Tempesto, brings the signature loop-the-loop of its namesake, an Italian daredevil, to life.

Busch Gardens is recognized as much for its extraordinary rides as it is for its live entertainment and culinary delights. The park’s signature stage shows offer guests a diverse lineup of award-winning live musical performances, and dishes from around the world are sure to satisfy your appetite for world-class dining.

Attend the annual Colonial Williamsburg Garden Symposium for tips and tricks on freshening up your outdoor space. Elsewhere in Colonial Williamsburg, combine adventure with education by becoming a citizen of the Revolutionary City. Watch re-enactments, engage with the city's residents and play Colonial games. Visit the art museums, taking in antiques and decorative art from three centuries, and have a family meal inspired by our nation's history. For mom and dad, the golf course and award-winning spa beckon.

At Jamestown Settlement and the American Revoution Museum at Yorktown, make your spring break a historical adventure the whole family can enjoy. Whether trying on armor or wandering through Continental Army tents, history comes to life in re-creations of a Powhatan Indian village, three ships and colonial fort at Jamestown Settlement and, at Yorktown Victory Center, a Continental Army encampment and 1780s farm.

Visiting during Easter in Greater Williamsburg?  Celebrate Easter with two weekends of fun at Yankee Candle Village, March 24 & 31 and enjoy a decadent buffet at one of our restaurants.
