Busch Gardens Williamsburg will continue their operations into the winter months with their Christmas Celebration event, the park has announced.  The holiday cheer-fest will start on November 13th and run select nights and days through January 3rd.

The limited capacity event will offer plenty of family fun with a significant portion of the theme park operating.  These areas include England, Scotland, Ireland, France, New France, Germany, Oktoberfest and Sesame Street Forest of Fun.  The park will be covered in twinkling lights, there will be plenty of festive food offerings, shopping and live entertainment too.  Plus, special activities such as a Gingerbread Scavenger Hunt, a meet and greet with Frosty and photos with Santa will be available.

For ride lovers, there will be a total of 15 rides and attractions operating during Christmas Celebration.  These include InvadR, Alpengeist, Verbolten and Grover's Alpine Express along with plenty of flat rides and kiddie rides.


There will be different sessions on some days as with past events this year at the park.  Some days only have an evening session from 5pm to 10 pm, but others have an additional session from 10am to 3pm.  Reservations are required for a visit.  The park recently benefited from having their maximum capacity increased from 1,000 guests per session to an amount based on a percent of theoretical capacity, which the park estimates raises the amount to 4,000 or so.
