Busch Gardens Europe and Africa no more

Did anyone notice that the BG parks are back to their city names instead of Africa and Europe? I'm OK with that, since I never stopped calling them by city anyway.

The Old Country and The Dark Continent? Busch parks have great identity (love their new commercials), but seriously, what's so hard about keeping a name for the parks? Their RIDE names are constant, which seems be a pretty rare thing these days...unless you count the relocated Maus.

The name change officially occurred at the end of last year.. However within the last month the websites have now been rolled over to the new naming..

But in the many years Ive lived down the street from Busch in Virginia.. Its really hard to get the Old Country outta my head.. Sides I sound hip and trendy when I tell my friends im going to the OC ;)

Damn Jeff!

When I first saw the title, I thought you were referring to Inbev just giving up and shutting down the parks.

Got scared for a moment. :)

At first I *groaned* at the name changes, but then I kinda grew use to it and kinda liked it. I still think Williamsburg/Tampa works better.

So it's back to BGT and BGW instead of BGE and BGA. Hooray!
