40 YEARS OF FUN: THE STORY OF BUSCH GARDENS WILLIAMSBURG.

DVD_BuschGardens[DVD: SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Inc. – 2015 – 40 mins]. Every epic journey has a start. Busch Gardens’ (Williamsburg, Virginia) journey started 16th May, 1975 and is 40 years in the making. This specially-commissioned documentary brings together past and current park executives and some of the park’s most enthusiastic fans to talk about their experiences. This limited edition DVD explores the park’s humble roots as a hospitality tour and its gradual transformation into a modern theme park with old-world charm. ANDY SHINE SAYS: With insightful contributions from former managers (Pat Cartwright, 1978-80; Mike Cross, 1980-89; Dan Brown, 1999-2003; Donnie Mills, 2003-07; John Reilly, 2007-10 and Carl Lum, 2010 to present) and others, I found this programme most interesting. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Excellent.
