Virginia Beach Amusement ParksWhen it comes to amusement parks, you can’t beat Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas. Not only do you have the beach to relax, but you have plenty of options to get excited. Right at the beach, you can hop on the Ferris wheel on the pier at 15th Street or head over to Ocean Breeze water park to cool off. For some of the best theme park attractions, Busch Gardens Williamsburg is about an hour’s drive but it’s worth it. This beautiful (and shady!) European-themed park features roller coasters, shows and delicious food from five different European countries. If you really want to get your pulse racing, head to Motor World or American Indoor Karting for go-kart racing. If its chills you are after, try the Nightmare House on Atlantic Avenue, a haunted mansion that’s open all year. Whatever your interest, you’ll be able to find plenty to amuse yourself!
While not in Virginia Beach, this favorite attraction in Virginia is about an hour and a half away, and is so worth a day trip to Busch Gardens. They have amazing shows, incredible roller coasters, rides for everyone, great food, and so much more. Come spend the day in Williamsburg!
