Busch Gardens in Williamsburg offers visitors a chance to experience a taste of European culture in the heart of Virginia, alongside heart-stopping rides. Plus, this year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the world's first suspended roller coasters, the Big Bad Wolf, which sends thrill seekers plummeting 99 feet into the Rhine River before catapulting them back into the air. This is only one of the many intense rides you'll encounter in the park, so the fainthearted should beware.
General admission costs $60 per day for adults and $50 for kids. Special offers are available for annual passes and Virginia residents through the Busch Gardens website.
