Busch Gardens Christmas Town

Busch Gardens Williamsburg just wrapped up it's annual Howl-O-Scream celebration and now they're preparing for Christmas!

Discover the magic of a Colonial Christmas as Busch Gardens Williamsburg transforms the world's most beautiful amusement park into winter wonderland with more than six million Christmas lights, a festive Mistletoe Market and a variety of live holiday performances.

Bundle up and climb aboard Jingle Junction. This 20 minute train ride lets you sit back and take in the all of park's Christmas magic. It's also a great way to get from one end of the park to the other.

Reindeer Run, Peppermint Twist, Snowman Summit... there are plans to have up to 22 rides running as long as weather permits.

Mach Tower, the parks tallest thrill ride, is transformed by Santa's magic in to Nacht Tower. Guests take a leisurely ascent to 240 ft above Oktoberfest. The views at night will be stunning. Then, instead of the Mach Tower's normal hair-raising, white-knuckled, free-fall drop... Nacht Tower will gently lower riders back to the ground allowing guests plenty of time take in all of the festive scenery.

Five Christmas productions will be presented including A Sesame Street Christmas, where the characters present a Christmas message about sharing and caring with friends and family members.

Get your hat, gloves and scarf out! Pack the family into the mini-van and head to Christmas Town! The amusement park is just 45 minutes from the rest of the Virginia Beach tourist attractions and well worth the short drive.

Celebrations begin November 23rd and run through December 31st. The park opens at 3 pm and ticket prices are $27.00 for 3 years and older. The Christmas Town Calender has the days and hours the park will be open so you can schedule your visit.


  1. One of these days I'm going to have to go to Virginia Beach. Always wanted to...

    1. After writing this blog, I was ready to plan a Christmas trip!! I would love to see Busch Gardens at night with 6 million Christmas lights.
