Europe in the Air at Busch Garden

Busch Garden is a huge amusement  park with lots of cool things to do and see.  One of the many things we tried there is the Europe in the Air.  We actually  came  early in the park so  some of the attractions were still closed.  
The kiddos wanted to check this Castle of Sullivan but it was still closed.
So we tried this  high-tech simulator  that takes you to  on a fun-filled journey across the terrain, over the seas and through the air over Europe.  This attraction reminds me of the  one we did in Disney World years ago.  Although the one in DW is a lot nicer, this one ain't bad.   
The continent’s most recognizable landmarks are featured, like Stonehenge in England, the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany and the Coliseum in Rome. The journey continues through the streets of Paris, along the Thames River and into the sky over Ireland for a view unlike any other.   Call me lame but this kind of stuff still gets me dizzy, I dunno why.   Below is a YouTube video.  (video isn't mine)

What I enjoyed the most in walking around the Busch Garden  was the beautiful landscape all through the  park.  
I forgot what ride is this but as usual, I did not go with them as it involved speed lol.  I
The one that I went with them is this sky-high mode of transportation that provides guests with a 3 minute scenic tour. Passengers enjoy views of all six European countries while relaxing 80 feet in the air. The sky ride stops in England, France and Germany. Here are the routes.
• England - arrival from Rhinefield departure for a one-way trip to Aquitaine
• Aquitaine- Arrival from England, departure for one way trip to Rhinefield
• Rhinefield- Arrival from Aquitaine, departure for a one way trip to England

It is so nice to look around with a refreshing ride atop the park.
Themepark wouldn't be complete without these two asking for  dip and dots treat.
Busch Garden is nice and fun but I don't think I would go back again.  I would rather see the historical  places in Williamsburg next time.

I haven't been to any amusement parks and I would love to visit one in the future. Good thing you and your family enjoyed your trip. Anyway, your daughter is really pretty!

We've taken our kids to Busch Gardens in FL many times and the kids love it. We haven't been in a while, but they love all the rides.

We've been wanting to visit Busch Gardens for Christmas. I'm not sure if it will happen this year but I def want to do Williamsburg in the same weekend.

I have never been to Busch Gardens. I am not a roller coaster rider, but I'll get on other rides. And dippin dots is a must have!

I remember visiting this park when I was a kid. It was so much fun. Now I want to take my kids here!

We have been to Busch Gardens before and had a good time. Like you, I like seeing historical things better, but Busch Gardens was neat!

Lisa said...

This sounds pretty awesome. I have't been there for something like 20+ years. It'll be interesting to see how much it's changed.

Candace Kage said...

Busch Gardens has always been one place I have wanted to visit. Still on my list. For now I will just enjoy your photos and enjoy the experience through you.

Jennifer M said...

What a great park, I visited it a few years ago. It looks like you guys had an awesome time!

Ali Cummins said...

That looks like such a fun time. I've done one of those simulators before. They are amazing!

Stephanie Pass said...

We've never been to Busch Gardens, but it looks like fun! My kids definitely beg for Dippin Dots, too, lol.

Rebecca Swenor said...

It sounds like you had a blast at Bush Gardens. We have never been there before but would love to visit there some day. The Castle of Sullivan sounds like it would be fun to check out but the high-tech simulator sounds better. I would love to do the Europe in the Air at Bush Garden. It sounds like it would be interesting and fun at the same time for everyone. Thanks for sharing your experience.

I have always wanted to go to Busch gardens. Maybe someday I'll be able to go with family.

Garf said...

I like going to the amusement parks but not into rides. I am already happy being a spectator.

Kiddos and adults surely will be amuse in these park, it seems like you are indeed early to get there, but it's the benefit because you can stroll the place with less people.

MitchRyan's Blog said...

The 3-minute tour is interesting, but because it's done 80 ft.above the ground I'm certain I'm going to chicken out.

Zwitsy said...

I love the ambiance. It sure is one of the best places to visit there and tour your kids around. Only if Philippines come with such beautiful parks alike, I'll surely won't get tired of bringing my son adn so as my nephews and nieces.

Jessica Cassidy said...
