We headed to Williamsburg and spent a few days at Busch Gardens with my friend Nicole and her son Mason. We both remember going as kids and thought it would be a fun trip to do together since Mason is now in a year round school down in Wilmington. Halloween at Busch Gardens was fantastic – thank goodness we went up Thursday night so we hit it Friday morning when the crowds were light because by Saturday it was packed full of people. What was very cool was how it changed at 6pm from kid friendly Halloween to MOTHER OF GOD he has a chainsaw. Hayley, who like me loves all things scary and horrible, had me go to every scary haunted house they had but boy oh boy did she get spooked by one character as we were leaving the park.
I went on more rides than I thought I would – the log ride was the best and The Lochness Monster was intense. People were really friendly, Busch Gardens was amazingly clean and the prices were better than we expected. We stayed at a great condo and as always had a great time with Nicole and Mason. Twenty years since Nicole and I pledged together, still adore her.
