Here's the Busch Gardens hours and operating schedule for the spring/summer season, Howl-O-Scream, and Christmas Town!
Last year, park opening hours varied widely by date, which made it hard to keep track of when you needed to arrive to get the most out of the park.
But for 2015, they've settled down and park hours now start at 10 am each open day, although closing times still vary quite a bit. So make sure you double check the date you're planning to go by looking at my detailed chart below!
In general, during March through May, and Sept.-Oct., the park is only open on Fridays, weekends, and select holiday or Spring Break weekdays. June and July, it's open every day.
And if you're looking for special events (like Glory in the Gardens) go to my Busch Gardens Events page.
