Officials at Busch Gardens Williamsburg have recently announced the facility has been named the “World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park” by the National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA).

According to the official website of Busch Gardens, the Virginia amusement park has been named the World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park by the NAPHA each year since 1990.

“Members have long praised Busch Gardens Williamsburg for its amazing setting with its world-class thrill rides and attractions surrounded by detailed European theming all nestled into a lush, rolling, forested landscape,” NAPHA historian Jim Futrell said in a statement. “As demonstrated by the survey results, it’s an atmosphere that is hard to duplicate anywhere else.”
