Amusement park enthusiasts are touting Busch Gardens in Virginia as the country's most beautiful amusement park.
Busch Gardens Europe in James City County earned the honor for the 20th consecutive year based on an annual survey by the National Amusement Park Historical Association. The group is dedicated to preserving and documenting the heritage of amusement parks.
The survey is the oldest of its type and highly regarded within the park industry and enthusiasts' circle.
Busch Gardens beat out Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., for the fifth straight year for the honor. The park also nabbed the second place spot for favorite theme park, which was topped by Walt Disney World.
