Select Attractions and Rides:
Griffon was the world's tallest and first floorless dive coaster when it opened in 2007. A highlight of Busch Gardens, Griffon plunges thrill-seekers down from a height of 205 feet at 75 mph (120 kph). Named for a mythical beast that is part eagle and part lion, Griffon is an adrenaline-pumping adventure that's unlike any coaster experience in the world.
Curse of DarKastle: The Ride
Deep in the snow-drift hills of Bavaria sits a grand castle frozen in time. Journey to the other side during this bone-chilling chase packed with dizzying drops, fog, shattering ice and pyrotechnic special effects.
A snow monster notorious for once stalking the French and German Alps, Alpengeist is rumored to be lurking in the shadows of Busch Gardens' Germany. Marks of its mischief are evident as the roller coaster careens uncontrollably, propelling riders on a dynamic, high-speed journey.
Hold on to your seats as the park's thrilling “hypercoaster,” Apollo's Chariot, plummets guests a combined 825 feet (251meters), more than any other steel roller coaster in the world.
The Big Bad Wolf
Among the world's first suspended roller coasters, The Big Bad Wolf sends guests "howling" at the speed of fright. Suspended from an overhead track, riders fly seemingly out-of-control through a deserted Bavarian village.
Loch Ness Monster
The World's first interlocking, double-looping, steel roller coaster is continually rated a favorite by park guests, this classic ride gives you a peek at Scotland's most infamous serpent as it hurls you along 3,240 feet (987.5 meters) of steel track into the air, over water and through a dark cave.
Water Country USA
As the mid-Atlantic's largest water park, Water Country USA offers 43 acres (17 hectares) of pools, children's play areas, lazy rivers and water rides. Your family will have a blast at Rock 'n' Roll Island®, featuring nearly 600 feet (182 meters) of body slides, a 700-foot (213 meters) lazy river and a 9,000-square-foot pool (2743 meters). Rock 'n' Roll Island celebrates the music of the 1950s and '60s -- the era in which all of Water Country USA is themed. If you want to relax, the park has about 1,500 free lounge chairs and 16 private cabanas for rent.
