WILLIAMSBURG, Va., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The results are in and theme park fans around the world have voted Busch Gardens Europe in Williamsburg, Va. the "World's Best Theme Park." The "Theme Park Insider Awards" are given each year based on votes cast at http://www.themeparkinsider.com/
. Only the site's 12,000 registered members -- theme park fans from all 50 U.S. States and 80 countries -- are eligible to cast ballots.
"This is a tremendous honor for Busch Gardens Europe and all of its employees because it acknowledges not only our great rides and shows, but also our beauty, theming, dedicated world-class guest service and overall park experience," said Donnie Mills, general manager of the European-themed park. "To be recognized by Theme Park Insider, a site created for and read by people who know and love this industry, is a privilege that reaffirms our efforts to provide world-class service to every one of our park guests," he added.
The win is a first for Busch Gardens Europe, though the park's "Curse of DarKastle" ride won Theme Park Insider's "World's Best Theme Park Attraction" award last year. The awards were first given in 2002.
