Water main break forces Busch Gardens closure, park reopens on Friday

Busch Gardens reopened on Friday after it closed on Thursday when an 8-inch water main broke in the middle of England Village near the Coke Market, according to the park. 

Crews are working to repair the problem, park spokesman Ron Vample said. Park officials discovered the water main break Wednesday night and closed the park today as a precaution, Vample said.


Guests with park admission tickets dated December 15 can return any day from December 16 to 21, the website says. Some rides will be closed on Friday due to cold weather, according to Vample. 

Reservation questions can be directed to the company's customer call center at (800) 343-7946.
