Busch Gardens…and singing mice

This morning we woke super early to head off to Busch Gardens Europe here in Williamsburg. We had a quick bite at the amazing hotel breakfast area, which consisted of milk, waffles, fresh fruit, cereal, bagels and tons of other great stuff. All included with our stay at Springhill Suites. We drove to Busch Gardens and spent the day riding amazing coasters like Griffin (a 205 foot floorless dive machine that plunges you straight down) and my personal favourite, Alpengeist. The tallest and fastest inverted coaster on the planet. Both coasters are made by B&M, which most coasters in the Busch parks are. We went on almost everything at the park and left around 4:30. I must say the park is beautiful, with great landscaping and theming. Each section of the park is themed to a different European country such as Scotland or France. The park just won a Golden Ticket award for being the “Most Beautiful Park in the World”. I think they definatly deserve it. On our way back to the hotel, we stopped at the Yankee Candle Flagship Store. This place is huge inside, they have a themed town square and a Christmas Room where it snows! They carry all the great Yankee Candle products, so the place smells great and is crawling with tourists. It’s many different stores in one building that all run into eachother and then there is one major checkout area to make things easier. The best part was in the town square, the clock tower opened up to this strange animatronic musical show. I’m assuming it’s every hour on the hour. The characters are the singing mice that live inside and the clock face (which talks and sings too!).I must say it’s very bizarre and strange, and such a thing I would like. Nick and I had no idea what the show was about, but there was a song about Virginia in there. Were now back at the hotel and will probably just do dinner and maybe hot tub. Tomorrow morning we leave fore Florida and it’s going to take about 12 hours, so it’s going to be a long day.
