Taste of Busch Gardens

Looking for a taste of Busch Gardens? As you probably already know, this year at Busch Gardens will look very different than in years past. Normally, the park would be gearing up for Howl-O-Scream, an epic Halloween event where the park transforms at night into a Halloween-lover’s paradise. But because of COVID-19, this event had to be cancelled, and the park itself has been closed for months.

But there’s good news if you’re looking for a fun fall event! Now through September 27, Busch Gardens will host Taste of Busch Gardens, an outdoor culinary event where guests can enjoy delicious culinary fusions, wine tastings and specialty beverages. Guests will have plenty of open space to enjoy six villages in the park, including Oktoberfest, Rhinefeld, Ireland, Scotland, France and New France.

What could make this better? Roller coasters, of course. Four iconic coasters, along with the log flume ride, the Screamin’ Swing, and more. Think back to summers as a kid going to the county fair, but way, way better.

To help ensure a safe and fun experience at the park, all guests are required to make a reservation prior to visiting. The reservation process is now open with a single-day ticket starting at just $44.99 per person.

Those who already hold an active Membership, Annual Pass, Fun Card, or previously purchased Single-Day Ticket and wish to attend can simply make a reservation for the date desired.

All guests will enter through the toll plaza, including Platinum & Premier Memberships and Platinum Annual Passes, and will be directed towards the England parking lot for special event entry.


Wednesday & Thursday, 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM 

Friday – Sunday 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
