Hershey Park vs Busch Gardens WilliamsburgHersheypark: HP or BGW?
From Jean Seo-ParkI am cross-posting this "poll". I favor roller-coasters over midway rides. And I don't care for inverted coasters much, because I often feel my field of vision is obscured. I will consider quality over quantity as I know BGW has fewer "hard" coasters than HP's 11. And I also do not mind spending a little extra $$ on park food if it is a cut above the typical pretzel/hotdog/churro fare. I guess I am looking to see which park has the better package of ambience and thrill rides. Also, I am not interested in water rides exclusively, though I will probably ride them if I go in August. I have no kids. Thanks in advance

From Ali SalemWhile I enjoy Hershey very much for me, Bush Gardens is the obvious winner. No Doubt Busch is superior with theming (it is one of, if not the, most beautiful park in the world). And as far as thrills, the 4 current coasters at Busch are world class and DarKastle is quite cool. I also have heard Europe Up In The Air is phenomenally done though I haven't rode it yet. The shows at Busch are also superior as is the food (Especially in Germany and Trappers Smoke Haus). Storm runner at Hershey is an Amazing coaster and Lighting Racer is as well but its short and the others leave you wanting more. So, unless you hate walking, Busch is the Park For You! Btw if your gonna be in the area of Busch I'd check out Kings Dominion with their new 300 + foot Coaster. Though I still prefer Busch over that! Hope this Helps!!
