Busch Gardens Once Again Named Most Beautiful Theme Park


JAMES CITY-Busch Gardens Williamsburg was recently named Most Beautiful Theme Park, a distinction that the park has held for more than three decades.

The National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA) honored Busch Gardens Williamsburg with the title of World’s Most Beautiful Park. Busch Gardens first received the award in 1990.

 “This award is a testament to our team’s dedication to our guests,” said Kevin Lembke, president of both Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA.  “From the minute a guest arrives at Busch Gardens, we want them to know they are in for a world-class experience, and our amazing landscaping sets that expectation. The beautiful setting provides an incredible backdrop for our thrilling rides and attractions.”

The award was part of an annual NAPHA Amusement Park and Attractions Survey. NAPHA is an international organization dedicated to the preservation, documentation and enjoyment of the amusement and theme park industry.

 “Busch Gardens Williamsburg has sustained this continued excellence thanks to teamwork,” said Jason Ingram, landscape manager for Busch Gardens. “Coordinating and communicating with departments on prioritizing work for special events was extremely important this year. Without the continued passion and hard work from landscape ambassadors, our park would not be able to show off its natural beauty. We are humbled to know that our park is still regarded as the World’s Most Beautiful Amusement Park in the world for the 31st consecutive year.”
