Busch Gardens Overview
Busch Gardens Williamsburg, also known as Busch Gardens Europe and Busch Gardens: The Old Country, is located in James City County, Virginia. The theme park was originally developed by Anheuser-Busch and opened in 1975, right next to Anheuser-Busch’s local brewery. It is now owned by SeaWorld Entertainment.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg is known for fun rides, shows, great landscaping, restaurants, and other attractions. More than two million people visit this theme park each year, making it one of the most popular theme parks in the nation. Though many people visit Busch Gardens, the number of reported injuries is small. This is a good thing.
Even though the amusement park is generally safe, serious injuries can and do occur at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The most famous accident happened in 1999, when model Fabio was struck by a goose on the maiden voyage of the roller coaster Apollo’s Chariot. Other incidents and accidents have happened on the following rides: Griffon, Big Bad Wolf, Loch Ness Monster, Tempesto, and the Eagle One Monorail. People can also get injured when their rafts flip on water slides, or if they collide with other patrons.
Other Busch Garden injuries have happened when patrons slipped, tripped, or fell in the park. These injuries can cause broken bones, cuts, and even brain injuries. These accidents are not always the park’s fault. That depends on whether the stairways, boarding areas, or walkways are safely designed. If they aren’t then the park may be responsible for your injury.
The bottom line is that you must prove that Busch Gardens’s negligence caused your injury. If the theme park neglected to do something that it should have done to protect your safety – such as training employees properly, fixing a known safety hazard, or maintaining a ride properly – then you may be owed compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, and lost income. We recommend that you hire an experienced amusement park accident lawyer to investigate your claim.
