How disappointing for you all. I know rides have technical issues but you cant help being disappointed when a headline ride (or three) goes tech.
The crowds and the heat wont have helped. I think that would try anybodys patience!
We are all coaster fans, so would like to give Busch a go. Im not too hopeful for a low crowd day though, especially as we are restricted to August.

Nothing worse than when rides go down and you have built up a bit of time to enjoy them on your own
Love your photos of the giraffe experience and think you did well to avoid the hard sell on buying their package.
We can never eat all the main courses at Millers, so to see appetizers too is a challenge we need to try!

Love your Caddyshack description of the pool

First of all, loving your trip reports!

We had a very similar experience at BG last May, the number of South American tour groups was crazy and they were just so rude. Huge congregations of them in areas near rides, loud music and group dances too, very "in your face" and inconsiderate.

That aside, BG are there to make money so cant complain about them taking their money which is as good as ours but the rides, or lack of them, rattled me. Cobras curse was on maintenance, it only opened the year before and had tech issues then and so many other headliners were down or on maintenance. I read at the time of someone who had similar issues and complained, I did the same and got 3 single day passes and 3 fast passes for Cobras Curse. Much appreciated but had they not done this we wouldn't have returned, it was a dreadful day in all.

Were going back in September to give the place another go, I honestly believe May's best avoided simply because of the tour groups but we've had some great days there at different times of the year. Write to them and express your disappointment, cant hurt.

Thanks for reading. I did contact them and they made apologies but not much else. Im getting that impression that May is no good for Seaworld it Busch Gardens. Youd think wed learn after 4 trips

It sounds like a frustrating day. The giraffes looked fun though!
