Busch Gardens Ambassador Blogger Meet-Up and Opening Weekend

I just had the best weekend ever. The weather was beautiful (it’s snowing now, but let’s not dwell on that), I got in a ton of walking time, rode some fun rides, saw a couple of shows, smelled some lovely spring flowers, met the most adorable puppies on earth and learned about a really cool […]

Howl-O-Scream 2013: Busch Gardens ups the ante for Halloween events everywhere

  How do you take an already great Halloween event and make it even better? If you’re an ordinary theme park, you add themed dining to the venue and call it a day. If you’re Busch Gardens, you add themed dining and insert amazingly talented actors into it for an extraordinary dinner theatre experience. Oh, […]

Darius Rucker Rocks Richmond at Innsbrook After Hours

Newly appointed Grand Ole Opry member and front man of Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker performed to a sold out crowd at Richmond’s Innsbrook After Hours concert series.

Happy Wholidays from Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Seuss Landing is easily the most festively decorated spot in all of the Universe (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida, that is).  Sure, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is always snow-covered and stocked with snowmen and steam engines, but all of the greenery and red-trimmed wreaths just add a special sparkle […]

If […]

I became a zombie for the night last weekend. No, it wasn’t the zombie apocalypse. I’ll be sure to give you plenty of notice when that time comes. This was a Zombie Invasion dance party to open Halloween HAUNT at Kings Dominion. Zombies in all shapes and sizes ripped up their clothes, painted their faces […]
