Griffon at Busch Gardens EuropeIn small groups of about 15, guests to the European-themed Busch park can get tours of Loch Ness Monster, then Griffon, Alpengeist, and finally Big Bad Wolf. Tours include visits to the maintenance areas and control stations. The highlight of the entire tour may be the elevator ride to the top of Griffon some 200+ feet up. It must offer a breath taking view of the ride, the park, and the entire surrounding area. According to this review of the coaster tour, you can take as many pictures as you want. If that wasn’t enough, the tour includes a CD with pictures of your tour that are taken by park employees. After the tour you also get Quick Que passes to ride the roller coasters again without waiting in line later in the day.

$74.95 for Participants (Not including park admission)
