Study in Virginia

Posted on January 7th, 2012 by Jenny Frankel

Shrills of amused screams echo through the air as a roller coaster whips around a bend and skyrockets upward, only to drop its unsuspecting riders back down its steep track. This could be any rollercoaster at one of Virginia’s theme parks. Forget traveling to Orlando, Florida for fun rides, international students studying in Virginia can escape their academics and easily take a day trip to one of Virginia’s amusement parks.

International students can take a break from the historic sites of Williamsburg Virginia or just their studies at the College of William and Mary and venture off to Busch Gardens Williamsburg. With over twenty rides, Busch Gardens Williamsburg is European themed. Originally named Busch Gardens: The Old Country, students can visit England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy. Animal encounters featuring eagles, wolves and Clydesdales, among other animals, are available.

Cool down at Busch Garden’s Water Country USA with more than ten slides and attractions.

Just north of Richmond, the capital of Virginia, King’s Dominion is the perfect place for students studying in Virginia to seek hair raising thrills. Kings Dominion attracts over 13 million visitors a year with over 60 rides and attractions. The Anaconda was the first looping coaster in the world that showcased an underwater tunnel and the 4,210-foot Dominator is the longest floorless coaster in the world. Volcano, the Blast Coaster, is the only coaster in the world to shoot you straight out of a raging volcano at speeds over 70 mph.

Like Busch Gardens, Kings Dominion also has a water park, Waterworks, complete with waterfront cabanas, rafting rides and slides.

When walking along the 28 feet wide, thee mile long boardwalk in Virginia Beach, you are bound to come across the Virginia Beach Amusement Park. Located across from the boardwalk’s only pier, the Amusement Park is more like a carnival. Prices of rides vary and all day wristbands are available.
