The last time I was at Busch Gardens was in 2005 during Howl o Scream and I believe it was during a weekend which I never do.During this time the park reached FULL CAPACITY and was actually not letting you back into the park if you left to go to your car. It was so full that I was actually scared for my own safety and getting trampled when leaving certain shows in areas like Ireland in the town square area (literally elbow to elbow with strangers, feeling the hot breathe of another person on the nape of your neck.) The only reason I went on a weekend was because it was a FREE trip courtesy of family members and I was a teenager. Now I have my own 2 year old and I plan on going to Busch Gardens during the week preferably on a Wed during the first full week of August. My husband says he hates crowds and I don't want the experience to be a bad one for him, noramlly a weekday isnt bad for BG but since it has been so long I would like to know what other people think.
Also, is it true that now you can truly walk around BG with a beer in hand? During the 90's and the early 2000s this was a BIG NO NO.
