Busch Gardens 'Virginia' now?
Just looking at Busch Gardens Europe's new website
... err, there's no longer any reference to Busch Gardens "Europe"; now it is Busch Gardens "Virginia" in the page headers.
The logo has the large "Busch Gardens" letters, with "Williamsburg, VA" in tiny type underneath it.
The Busch Gardens Africa site appears unchanged.
I was prepared for the name of these parks to change upon new ownership, so I'm not much in the mood to start changing references to the Williamsburg park right now. (And have to change them again later.) I would, however, entertain a spirited, creative discussion among TPI readers over what *you* think the name of the Williamsburg park should be.
Creativity encouraged. ;-)
Personally, I think Busch Gardens Europe is a better name. Busch Gardens Virginia is quite generic. On the other hand, the name can be misleading, because from the name a lot of people infer that the park is actually in Europe.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg or North (while Tampa is South)
I always preferred Busch Gardens: The Old Country because it gave off more of a an old world European theme than even Busch Gardens: Europe did. Going back to the Williamsburg moniker i guess erases some confusion of tourists actually trying to find a Busch Gardens in Europe and then being disappointed; which honestly is really freaking funny to imagine.
Busch Gardens Europe is probably confusing to most of the public as they'll think it's in Europe itself. Adding the Old Country moniker at least makes it clearer that the name is about the theme of the park not its location.
It really should be "InBev Gardens:The Highest Bidder".
I kind of like "Busch Gardens: The Park That Will Be Out Of The Best Ride Tournament Unless They Do Something Creative And Get Their Fans To Show Up For The Vote Today."
I like Raul's suggestion.
I'm going with Busch Gardens Voldemort, because it appears to be the park that cannot be named.
Got this via email from Dan Dipiazzo, VP of marketing for Busch Gardens in Williamsburg:
