Wet, Wonderful Gardens

Today the girls and I went back to Busch Gardens. I had bought them season tickets before I left. They have a good deal where a season pass is the same as a one day ticket! It would have been silly not to get it. They have been back several times since my first blog post and rode the roller coasters many times. I don’t enjoy the roller coasters like I did when I was younger so today we just hit most of the shows. Our favorite was an African show called Katonga. The sets and costumes were very elaborate. It was so creative, and we loved it. We also went to American Beat, a show about music of the 50s to 70s plus some songs of today. During the 70s section the guy who was singing a song from Saturday Night Fever had Carrie get up and disco dance with him. She was so embarrassed but did it anyway. We also went to the Chinese Acrobats (they were fabulous) and a Pirate Movie in 4D.

It rained and rained in the evening, and we got soaked. It was great though because it never was that hot, and it thinned the crowd out quite a bit. We also saw a lot animals and birds. The girls loved the Budweiser Clydesdale horse named “Mike!”

We ended up staying until closing time. As we were leaving one of the biggest roller coasters was stuck at one of the highest points in the ride. I would have been scared to death. I hope they got them out before it started raining again!

I really enjoyed my time with the girls at Busch Gardens. It was a great day!
