Busch Gardens Releases iPhone App with GPS Capability

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -Need to know the wait time for Busch Gardens’ Griffon roller coaster?

The theme park has an app for that. A new Busch Gardens mobile app, available for download at the App Store on iTunes, sends park-specific information like restaurant menus, show schedules and restroom locations right to a guestís smartphone. An interactive map lets GPS-compatible phones navigate the park with ease so guests can spend less time rushing around the 150-acre park and more time enjoying its attractions.

“Busch Gardens’ mobile app is another tool available for guests that can make a visit to the park more enjoyable,” said Busch Gardens Marketing Vice President Dan Dipiazzo. “It will change the park experience for anyone with a smartphone.”

The app is currently available for the iPhone, but an Android-based version will be available soon.

This is the first mobile application offered by the Williamsburg theme park. The mobile app is being deployed to complement the park experience and provide up-to-the-minute details for all of the park’s family-friendly activities.

“We are using the full capabilities of today’s smartphones so the mobile experience is as thrilling as our attractions,” Dipiazzo said. “Now finding your way around the park or a place to eat is just a click away.”
