Busch Gardens Christmastown Review

Twas The Night is an amazing ice skating show that takes place each evening at 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30 pm It is a MUST see show! My kids said it was their favorite show at Busch Gardens Christmastown. Be sure to get there 20-30 minutes before show times to get a great seat. Tip-don't sit too close to the stage or you won't be able to see the special fireworks at the end. 

Santa's Workshop gets very busy, we headed there immediately once the park opened at 2:45. Tip-you can enter Busch Gardens at 2:00 but they do not open up anything except England. To get to Santa's workshop I would suggest waiting at the rope drop near the entrance to Italy so that once it is 2:45 you can head to Santa's Workshop to avoid a long wait time.

We purchased the Santa photo's which were a 6x8 size and cost $24 for two photos

There are 3 character meet n greet's at Busch Gardens Christmastown-Penguins, Santa and Frosty the Snowman The Penguin meet n greet is located near Trappers Smokehouse. They have the cutest penguin stuffed animals for sale here too. 

Frosty The Snowman meet n greet is located near the Peppermint Twist (near Roman Rapids area)

At night the park really looks amazing! There are lights galore and be sure to take a ride on the Choo Choo Train at night so you can see the whole park. 

The Clidesdale horses are available for photo's in England

The Polar Parkway is absolutely breathtaking! This is Escape From Pompei decorated with tons and tons of beautiful lights. 

This was one of my favorite Christmas Tree's at Christmastown! So beautiful! 

Busch Gardens Christmastown tickets cost $30 per person and I would recommend purchasing online to save time. There are many wonderful shows, my kids loved Twas The Night (ice skating show) and Scrooge (located inside in England). We also saw Gloria (indoor) which is located in Ireland. This tells the story of the birth of Jesus and is mostly singing. Jingle Bells is a really fun, kid friendly show located inside at Octoberfest. We brought our kids dinner in a soft sided cooler and let them eat during the show inside at Octoberfest. We purchased dinner from the buffet and ate during the show too. I love how Busch Gardens allows people to bring food and drinks in to the park. This really helps save money! 

Overall, I would highly recommend visiting Christmastown! It was a lot of fun. My kids were sad that the Sesame Street Forest of Fun was closed. They love that area. However, there are lots of kiddie rides open, the airplanes, bumper cars, balloon ride, peppermint twist, tea cups, train, sky ride, etc.
