We have season passes for Busch Gardens. Its extremely crowded during the Christmas season. If you want to get in better arrive early. People were still entering at 8 pm. They close at 10. The ice show was very good. However, the wait to get in was very loonng. They do open the doors at 6:15, but thats not so you can get seated. Its a long wait inside and there is little air circulation going on in there. Very unpleasant 45 minutes. Seating is jammed together. Little leg room. Better like the person next to you or be comfortable shoulder to shoulder with strangers.
