Busch Gardens Christmas Town Ticket Giveaway!

I’ve never been huge on Christmas Spirit. Never wanted to go carrolling, or decorate the outside of the house (too much work!) and eggnog…. nooooooooooooooooooooo! But there’s something about Busch Gardens Christmas Town that makes me feel like Scrooge at the end of A Christmas Carol.

I’m decking halls left and right, singing along with holiday tunes…. but still not considering eggnog. Pass the hot chocolate, please!


From the (over) 8 million lights (the biggest display in North America!), to seeing Santa in his workshop, to the AMAZING shows (if you don’t go see Scrooge No More, you are seriously missing out), the refillable hot chocolate mugs, merry food and drinks (yes, those kinds!) to the magic of the Oh Tannenbaum tree in Oktoberfest, Christmas Town has always been a family favorite for us, and this year, there’s even more Christmas magic to experience!

This season at Christmas Town, you have the opportunity to visit Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland. It’s like walking into your childhood!


Stroll through Holiday Hills (previously known as Festa Italia) and stop in to take pictures with Rudolph, Clarice & friends like Bumble, Yukon & Cornelius!




For the little ones, for the first time ever, Sesame Street Forest of Fun is open for Christmas Town and decked out for the holidays! Bring them to see the colorful lights & meet their favorite Sesame Street characters. Grover’s Alpine Express is open, and you can take them on Prince Elmo’s Spire for a view of the lights from up high (but not as high as Nacht Tower!)



The lights, decorations, food & cheer aren’t the only things to enjoy, though! This year, there is en expanded ride lineup for the thrill seeking folks- including Verbolten & Tempesto, along with 20 other rides around the park!

Don’t take MY word for how fun Christmas Town is this year– take my tickets! Actually, take FOUR! Busch Gardens was kind enough to give me a family 4 pack to give away to one of you!

Christmas Town is open daily from Dec 9th – Jan 2nd (Closed Christmas day). To enter to win, use the widget below (and please make sure you will actually use the tickets!)

    I would be most excited to see all the food and drinks in my face. But would take the crotchfruit to see Santa’s workshop, since ya know I guess Christmas is for the kids and not my taste buds. 😉

  • It would be amazing to take our 1 1/2 year old to meet elmo and see the amazing light displays for the first time.

  • We just love Christmas Town (who doesn’t?!), but I am looking forward to seeing a show I haven’t yet – Miracles or Scrooge No More – and checking out Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland!

    • I went a few years back. Saw Gloria and loved it, would love to go back now that my daughter is 6 and see how much she would enjoy!

  • I went once years ago and I loved taking the train around and singing Christmas carols. I would love to do that again!

  • I think I would be most excited to see the new displays! Rudolph has always been my favorite!!

  • The best thing about bumbles is… Bumbles bounce! I’m most looking forward to Roudolph and friends!!!

  • I would like to see everything in Christmas town! This would be fun to do while my son is on break.

  • Such a great opportunity! We were just looking at tickets yesterday so winning them would be such a blessing! I would be most excited for either Rudolphs Winter Wonderland or seeing Sesame Street all lit up because my daughter would lose her mind!

  • … I just like the mint hot chocolate. I could drink like 40 of those!

  • Super excited to see Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland!

  • Thank you so much for the opportunity! We were just looking at tickets yesterday and not sure if we could swing it so winning would be amazing! I would be most excited for either Rudolphs Winter Wonderland or seeing Sesame Street all lit up because my daughter would lose her mind!

  • Super excited for Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland!

    I never got excited about Christmas before my monsters came along. But now I love going with them to see all the light displays.

  • It all looks like so much fun! Would love to see Rudolph!

  • Looks like fun! Would love to see Rudolph!

  • I NEED to win this!!

  • Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland looks totally cute! I’ve never been to Busch Gardens but now I really REALLY want to go!

  • I havnt been in 5 years so it would be nice to see what has changed and see what’s new. I would also like to see how my kiddos enjoy it because last time they were so little that there wasnt much for them to do.

  • We love the polar bears and lights!

  • I’m excited for the new Rudolf area, for Forest of fun to be open this year, and for riding the sky ride & train to enjoy the lights! Love seeing my kids eyes light up in wonder!!!!

  • I would be most excited to see my kids faces whend they see all the lights. My daughter loves looking at everyone’s Christmas tress and light’s.

    I would most like my kids to be able to experience it in forest of gun this year, that would be new and exciting for them!

  • I think I would be most excited about the hot chocolate and my son’s reaction to the lights. We have yet to go but this year I think he is old enough to appreciate the sights. It would be a nice family memory to create.

    Love your pictures – we have never ventured to the kids section of Christmas Town. Would love to go back and experience more 🙂

  • Catharine Porter December 7, 2016 at 10:00 am

    Never ventured to the Sesame Street Forest of Fun! Need to go back to experience more of Christmas Town!! 🙂

  • I would love to be able to take my son to see the park all lit up and his favorite characters. He has been so upset since the park closed for the season.

  • Do they do Christmas in June?? That would be better for us lol

  • Stephanie Miller December 7, 2016 at 11:17 pm

    This sounds so fun!!!

  • I would love to see the lights. I’m too lazy to put them up. But I love them.

  • Rudolphs winter wonderland

  • Would love to see the lights from above on the Prince Elmo Spire!

  • I would be really excited to go to the shows in between walking around to see all the amazing lights! Thanks so much for this chance to win…it sounds amazing! 🙂

  • I’m looking forward to the hot chocolate and Verbolten. Christmastown Verbolten was the first big coaster ride ever for my kids. The faces the photo took was priceless. They hated me afterward for not telling them about the surprise lol!

  • Would love to be able to see all of the lights.

  • All the lights and displays! Oktoberfest and the Oh Tannenbaum tree sound amazing. Just getting to go would be a wonderful treat. Merry Christmas everyone!

    I want to take the kids to see Sesame Street decked out for Christmas, I’d also like to see Rudolph but the kids hate costumed characters so that probably wouldn’t happen!
