Busch Gardens Williamsburg is preparing for the 2016 edition of Christmas Town. The event began in 2009 as Christmas Town: A Busch Gardens Celebration. Popular shows such as Miracles and Gloria continue to bring in crowds from all over the region. In the coming weeks, the park will transform into a winter wonderland full of dazzling lights, shows, and much more.
What’s new in 2016? Guests will have the opportunity to interact with Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. You can interact with the iconic reindeer and friends Clarice, Yukon Cornelius, and Bumble. Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland will be located in the holiday hill section. In addition, Sesame Street Forest of Fun will be decked out for the first time since Christmas Town debuted. Young guests can meet all of their favorite characters and enjoy rides on Grover’s Alpine Express coaster. “We have made Christmas Town bigger than ever, with more attractions and more time to enjoy them,” Busch Gardens President David Cromwell said. “Christmas Town has grown in popularity each year, and we’re gratified that so many families have made this a must-do holiday tradition.”
For the first time in the event’s history, two signature roller coasters will be open for operation. Tempesto and Verbolten will be open for guests to enjoy during Christmas Town (Weather permitting). Many shows will return for Christmas Town in 2016. Signature shows such as Gloria, Miracles, and Deck The Halls will all return along with O’ Tannenbaum Christmas tree, Scrooge No More, and Twas’ That Night each evening. Guests will also be able to enjoy Polar Pathway, a visit to Santa’s Workshop, and all of the shopping opportunities offered at the park. Busch Gardens encourages guests to plan early for the best savings at Christmas Town.
Tickets purchased on the day of arrival will cost $38.00. If you purchase tickets ahead of time for a specific date, you will be able to save as much as 55% off regular admission tickets. Unlimited visits to Christmas Town are priced at $38.00 the same price as a single day admission. The park opens Nov. 25 for Christmas Town and runs through Jan. 2, 2017 on select days. Check the main website for changes to the operating schedule and additional information.
