We’re at Busch Gardens for the opening night of one of favorite events, Christmas Town!
First up, sampling some of the food and drinks they have available this year. We started with the Totchos and Chicken & Donut.
Next up, we got adventurous with the Impossible Nachos. Highly recommend!
Next on the agenda…Loaded Mashed Potatoes and Maple Bourbon Pecan Pie.
Dessert concludes with Chocolate Kahlua Beignets and Hot Chocolate that we made Jolly with Peppermint Schnapps! Yum!
You can find Mrs. Claus telling stories and singing songs several times each night at the Coke Canopy.
After getting our fill of the various treats and drinks, we took a lap around the park to check out the light displays.
Falcon’s Fury sporting a halo tonight!
Christmas Town is now open daily through January 2nd. Be sure to visit for all your holiday cheer! Thank you for having us Busch Gardens! We can’t wait to come back throughout the holiday season!
Last week, Steve and Jennifer headed out to Busch Gardens Tampa to take in this years Food and Wine Festival.
Of course, that meant getting some awesome pics of Iron Gwazi construction. Who's ready to ride this beast? We sure are!! Take a look.

Last Friday we went to Busch Gardens for more Food & Wine fun, but really it was to take some well-lit photos of the current progress on Iron Gwazi's construction.
This ride is going to rape my face, and I'm going to love every second of it.
Still not crazy about the name, but the logo and sign look good.
Look at those coordinated twisties!
The station fly by where the two old Gwazi trains used to fly by each other.
Give me all the overbanks. All of them.
I mean technically we were here for this. What a sign!
Even the moon is like, "Hey there, looking good."
"HEY! What if the moon were made of Iron Gwazi, would you eat it??"
Mooooooon Gwaziiiiiii, shorterrrrrr than a mileeee............
Until I get a better lens, this is the best I can do with moon photos, so I'll take as many as I can during the day.
This is the barrel roll under the lift hill. One could expect a bevy of loose change to be under this element in the near future.
RMC's famous wrong-way banked airtime hill. This is the 2nd hill of the ride and will be sure to provide some fantastic hairtime.
Some ridiculous type of inversion formulated in the same secret lab as Covid-19.
This photo brought to you by PPE.
Steepest hybrid coaster in the world by a whopping 1 degree!
I wonder if the manufacturers who build these terrible wooden coasters are secretly proud that their monstrosities were the foundation of incredible creations by a better engineering firm.
That's enough of the 2nd hill for now. This element will rock my socks.
And the last look at the first hill that will surely be phenomenal.
This barrel roll will also be spectacular.
And whatever the hell this element is called will be scrumptralescent. (RIP James Lipton)
Over the weekend we were invited out to Busch Gardens Tampa to experience this years Christmas Town.
Lots of food and fun was in store and we can't wait to visit more this season.
