"Great rides and shows kept my 3 daughters constantly entertained"
A fabulous park. Great rides and shows kept my 3 daughters constantly entertained and enthusiastic for the next one. Staff was very friendly and helpful in advice on intensity of rides. I have 8, 10, and 12yo kids and there were appropriate rides for all tolerances. From simple rides for toddlers to hyper coasters, there's something for all ages. Park was very clean and creatively designed - one leg of the sky tram ride runs through a loop on a roller coaster, very cool.

"Great place to take the family! "
Great place to take the family! There are experinces for all age levels. The middle of the week is much less crowded than the weekends which make lines much shorter and navigation around the park much quicker. The various shows and number of roller coasters makes this another attraction that we will return to in the near future.

"I absolutely love BG"
My hubby & i absolutely love bg and we don't even 'do' rides.- except the very tamest of them all such as the train and the sky lift - but, oh, and i love the roamin' rapids!! We enjoy the wonderful shows, the beautiful landscaping and the delightful music playing throughout the park as we walk around and around and around! And the shopping is fun! I look forward, also, to greeting the clydesdales and spending time with them upon my arrival and saying goodbye to them when we leave. Our daughter lives in wmsbg w/her family and we make a point to visit bg when we are there every summer.
