Which park is better Busch Gardens Williamsburg or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay? I like Busch Gardens Williamsburg better because its one of my home parks and it love Apollos Chariot too. And I havent been to see the new country there Ireland yet but I will be going soon.
BGW all the way. BGT is WAY too hyped up. It is featured on every coaster show just because it is a zoo! It is a great park, but I prefer BGW a lot more. More shade, and more rides! I think it is prettier too. I prefer Alpengeist over Montu and like Apollo's Chariot and the Big Bad Wolf way better than Scorpion and Jumba. Both outstanding parks, but BGW wins my vote.
since i havent been to either, id say bgw because it has won so many awards but from what ive seen in pics id say bgt because it seems they got better rides(esp with rhino rally), a zoo, and a woodie. some of bgw's rollercoasters look crappy to me but i havent seen to much about them.

I agree with bryan. BGW is a really nice looking park, but other than Apollo and Alpengiest there really aren't many great coasters! Meanwhile BGT has Montu and Kumba, and they have Rhino Rally too! Yippee!

I believe a topic like this shouldn't be posted. Just wanted to point that out. ------------- June 20th, "I'm sprinting for Talon. Oh, wait! I won't have to."

i dont like either. BGW has narrow narrow paths and one good coaster, AC. Alpengiest is over-hyped, Montu is better. It also has a poor layout. I was expecting more animals and only found one place with rabbits, an eagle, prarie dogs, a pig and other normal animals (except eagle and PD) This park needs wood, and Drachen Fire to re-open.
BGT is a zoo with good coasters. I forgot a lot about this park but its better than BGW, but needs a hyper.
BGT has Kumba and Montu. BGW has Apollo and Alpengeist. I like Montu better than Alpengeist. I like Apollo better than Kumba. Don't get me wrong, I love both parks, coasterwise, they are equal. But, i prefer BGT, it's just a matter of opinion, Although Apollo is in my top 3 coasters, All of the Busch B&M's are in my top 10.

Actually, I've never been to either but from looks, BGW.

Wow and in this entire thread, no one has yet mentioned Gwazi. What? Y'all young'uns only like steel coasters now? (j/k) Anyway, I've not been to BGW (and it starting to look like it'll be 2003 before I get there...) but it would be had pressed to beat out BGT. BGT is about as close to the perfect mix of thrill/family park I have been to (HersheyPark is close, but the coasters are a little too tame). If BGW is near that same level, then I may have to speed up my timeline. lata, jeremy --who has only gotten excited about two parks without wooden coasters DisneyLand and IOA!
