Family Fun Bounce Package Offers Great Vacation Value

Colonial Williamsburg’s new Summer Bounce Package blends the excitement and anticipation of America’s Independence with the thrill of roller coasters and water slides, all at a real savings for families. Starting at only $232 per night for a family of four, this offer is available for three-night stays through Sept. 2. The Summer Bounce Package includes:

  • Accommodations at the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites

  • Daily breakfast

  • Three-in-one tickets for unlimited general admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and Art Museums, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA

  • Complimentary transportation from the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center to and from Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, a new service that begins July 1

Package pricing is based on a three-night minimum stay in a standard guest room for two adults and two children.

Colonial Williamsburg’s family summer programs are engaging and entertaining for the young and young-at-heart. Visitors to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area can play games at the Geddy House and explore 18th-century career paths during The Apprentice Tour. Guests can also try their hands at chores of the 18th century at the Benjamin Powell House. Family focused programming extends beyond the Historic Area to The Colonial Williamsburg Art Museums, where interactive exhibits were developed with young visitors in mind. At Great Hopes Plantation, families learn about African American history and farm life in a hands-on environment.

Beginning for the first time July 1, the package includes round-trip transportation from the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. With unlimited access to three exciting but varied attractions, the value-loaded Summer Bounce Package makes a Virginia vacation an affordable choice for family fun.
