  • Name changes for Busch parks...

    Just FYI... seems like they have made subtle changes to the names of both Busch Garden parks in Tampa and Williamsburg. Tampa's park, once refered to as Busch Gardens (The Dark Continent) is now being called Busch Gardens Africa. The one in Williamburg used to be Busch Gardens (The Old Country), and now it's called Busch Gardens Europe.

    Yes thanks for sharing that. Kinda random changes, but I guess they make sense.

        I reject that.. lol tourists can use it.. but it will still be Tampa and willamsburg.. or the older names work 5 times better.. cause BGT is dark at night.. and BGW can look olde.. (look at some of the areas of the park's arcetecture if you ignore the coaster..)

        (I already have seen people use BGA and BGE for the parks names.. till my SP says Africa i wont use them..)

          These aren't really new names, they are just returning to their original themes. Before the 1990s came round and their was a rush to be bigger and more thrills, Busch Gardens Williamsburg was BG: Old World and Tampa was BG: The Dark Continent, now they have returned to those themes, not that theme is becoming more of the focus in these fields of entertainment.
          Busch has been doing rebranding of the parks in the past 6 to 7 years, Sea World was changed as the focus went from solely animals to entertainment for all and Busch Gardens is trying to do some of the same..

            Busch just did it for the tourists who don't do their research properly...

            They should have gone back the the older names rather then europe and africa...

            Were there afraid of the pc police....

              Wow, interesting changes, but yeah I guess it makes more sense now. No matter how hard I try, I will probably always refer to Busch Gardens Europe as "BGW" though.

                If no one has visited BGW/BGE, please, if you are in the area, drop by. It's very much worth it, my favorite non-Disney park next to Cedar Point. It's amazing, great rides, beautiful, and lots of fun.

                      I actually was kind of shocked to hear the news about the name changes, honestly. I kind of like the theme that it gives the parks, it meshes well. The one thing that it brings to mind are: does this bring up the possibility of MORE Busch parks going up themed to different continents? Like Asia, South America, or even an American themed park?

                        ^ They already have 3 Sea World parks in the states (Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio).

                        The San Antonio area doesn't really need another park as they have Sea World and Six Flags within a mile of each other.

                        We all know that San Diego could certainly use a Busch park but that will never happen.

                        Busch did actually used to have a park in Van Nuys that was next to it's factory but that closed I want to say late 70's / early 80's.

                        Honestly ... I can't think of a geographic area that another Busch park could fit except maybe Ohio ... but they got out of that market a few years ago.

                          Oh.. a perfect market for Busch Antarctica is Las Vegas.. lol

                          No more Busch Gardens parks.. Busch Entertainment said that... they weren't interested in anymore... just the parks they have now.

                              You mean Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom Which is now owned by cedar fair when they bought the park that was partly Seaworld till it was sold to six flags... and they added Widewater Kingdom over a lot of the old Seaworld part...

                              Sesame Place is the only strange park they own now.. lol due to it's a kids land owned by a subsidiary of a beer company.
