Blizzard delays the fun for three days at Busch Gardens' Christmas Town

Published: December 28, 2010 at 11:26 AM

The east-coast Christmas-week snow storm has taken its toll on Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Christmas Town event, forcing the park to remain closed for three days so that the park can clear the ice and snow and repair damage caused by the storm.

[Editor: Anyone care to share their weather stories from the past week (theme park and travel-related or not)?]

I live a further bit east of Williamsburg and we got about half the amount they did. The problem in our area happened on Monday as I live in a Rural area with a lot fields along the highway. On Monday the wind was blowing the snow across the roads that had already been cleared. You could be driving along on a cleared roadway and all of a sudden there would be a wall of snow crossing the road and you could barely see that far ahead of you and then you would come out it to a clear road again if you made it thru without going off the road.

Busch Gardens has posted some photos of the park covered in snow on their Facebook page. Here is the link to the photos.
