Busch Gardens?

While the folks in Florida and California have Disney to go to, here in on the east coast we have Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. It's a great amusement park and I prefer it many times over Kings Dominion (about an hour north of Busch). They've got some new rides and I did not make it this year.

So, inspired by LJ friends who do their thing on the west coast, I wanted to put some feelers out there and find out who around here would be interested in a trip with friends to Busch Gardens? This would be in the spring, on a Saturday and hopefully before the kids get out of school. Not planning any big dinner or anything like that. Just coordinating a time where friends can enjoy the rides on the same day and maybe meet some LJ friends in person who live a little north of us.

Poll #1109109 Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia

Roller coasters and children are sheer terror!

I'm SO there!

I'm thinking that discounted tickets are available to NC state employees through the Employee's association to Busch Gardens. I'll look and see if that is the case or I just dreamed I heard about that somewhere....

Yep, this discount is typically there every year (like $5 off or something). I would also be interested in seeing what group discounts might be available if the group is large enough.

I am sure I could talk Randy into a day trip. It would be fun!

Re: SIGN ME UP
You would have to talk Randy into it? Not so much the believer of the roller coasters?

Sounds fun to me, but I'm not much of a ride junkie. I can hold everyone's bags, hats, glasses, etc. :-)

Oh wow, I'll think about it. I have been to BG in over 8 years.

Aww! Sounds like fun. I will be doing a roadtrip to Sandusky, Ohio. To visit Tommyboy, I mean King's Island.

Depending on when this is, I may be able to talk DSMorgan into something on a weekend if I headed out. It would totally be up in the air though if we could swing it.

Matt definitely likes roller coasters. I like amusement parks and we would like to go, but I will skip the rides with big drops :-).
